“Great fish, in a secluded courtyard”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

There are few proper restaurant choices in the old town of Zadar, but Konoba Trata makes up for that. It's only steps away from the remains of the Zadar forum, on Ulica Jerolima Vidulica, but as so often happens in Croatia, the street can be hard to spot. Check the map first, and then walk around to the back of the forum/church complex to find Ulica Jerolima Vidulica. Follow it for some 50m (150 ft) and you should see a sign for Konoba Trata, and a door in the wall.

The restaurant is located inside a secluded courtyard, with fewer than a dozen tables and plenty of separation for reasonable privacy and quiet. The kitchen is inside the building, however.

The menu is very much fish-focused, and the fish is generally priced by weight. We both selected grilled seabass (a Class I fish on the menu), and side dishes of rice and of potatoes with chard. As you can see by the photo, the main courses is exactly the grilled fish, with only some extra virgin olive oil, so make sure to select and order the side dishes you want.

Both the fish, grilled whole, and the sides were excellent in flavour, and the atmosphere of the courtyard was very pleasant. However, the meal was not inexpensive on the Croatian scale, as our total for two fish (0.35 kg each), two sides and a litre of mineral water came to 300 HRK. That's EUR 40 or US$50 so still quite reasonable on that scale, though.

If you are looking for a nice place for a dinner in the old town of Zadar, Konoba Trata is an excellent choice.

“a good choice among a poor and turistic offer in old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

we were prepared at a typical and turistic restaurant, because in the old town center, as happened at our departure for island one week earlier. But it was our anniversary wedding, and we have been walking a lot, so we decide to stop there. Perfect location close to "organo marino" and "saluto al sole", nice because inside a courtyard under trees, and far from confusion. Fish salad was very good and calamari too. Bill was very honest and waiter very helpful also in indication to come back to the hotel. A nice surprice.

“Great tasting food in a nice al fresco decor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

Came here for dinner last night. It was our first night out in Zadar.

The Radler tasted great after a very hot day!

For starters I ordered the marinated anchovies which were very good. I then ordered the grilled squid with potato salad. The squid was fresh and delicious, although I didn't care much for the tartare sauce that it came with.

The potato salad was simple but well dressed.

My wife, who's vegan had the Chard and potato dish with she really enjoyed.

The outdoor setting is calm and beautiful, right in the centre of the old city but away from the hustle and bustle. We'll definitely be back here during our stay.
