“Very good meat, average service, personnel with attitude”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

One of THE places to go in Zagreb if you want grill ('čevapćići', 'pljeskavca'). Their grilled meat is really very good. The rest is not. The service is average and the personnel is unfriendly. All right, they do not serve coffee (to keep the guests for as short time as possible), but they should not brush you off for asking. Also, giving you a lesson for not touching your bread (they brought without asking, free of charge) is way, way out of line. I am not sure that I would go there again. Having good 'ćevap' does not give you the right to be cheeky.

“Great BBQ”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

It's not a fancy place. You would probably think you are in the wrong place, but they do one thing excellent and that's their meat. Fabulous grill which gave them the reputation among the locals. A lot of famous people and dignitaries come here to eat despite the look of the place and that goes to show the quality of the food. Only bad side is that it's quite out of hand...

“I know it's just ćevapi but they could do better.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2012

The food is good, but the thing I resent is when they give bread with "ćevapi" instad of "somun". The terrace was crowded and full of flies during the summer, flying around the bread baskets... They can do better.
