“Title of my review #5”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013

Normally, unless we are on a trip, we somehow avoid visiting pubs and restaurants that look like one. Their dishes are mostly tasty, but monotonous.

We were without ideas for Saturday lunch, saw a recommendation on a blog we follow and gave it a go. K pivovari is a pub/restaurant placed next to the Zagrebacka brewery known for its very popular, but quite unpleasant lager.

So, the negative sides of our lunch:
1. Couvert was cheese based, even though it was specially requested no meal should contain that foul ingredient for me.
2. Gratinated strudel was not properly seasoned.
3. A good part of the restaurant is in the dark, which might be suitable for a pubby atmosphere, but, it's quite difficult to eat most of the beer-based dishes as they are quite dark themselves. This was especially the case with the duck as it contained bones, some of which were very small.
4. Duck confit wasn't a confit as the meat wasn't juicy enough.
5. Beer chocolate cake was also a bit dry with no taste of beer at all.

However, even though the list of negatives seems to be verbose, everything we ate was excellent, especially the duck *roast* with mlinci (chewy baked and then cooked pasta drowned in fat) which was simply spectacular!

Our expectations were low, but, at the end, we were positively surprised.
