Location is on the pier by the sea, staff is very friendly and professional but food quality is poor for money wanted. Monkfish is on the picture and that's something like house specialty but indefinitely flavours and combination of non complementary tastes makes this dish...definitely not worthy 160 kn and title of specialty. Pasta with shrimps was very good and fair price. Appetizer called Sea garden was awful, just raw fish very badly spiced and tasteless hake pate, price is also awfuly high- 90 kn. Dessert was tiramisu in cup, tasty but not so exclusive and big portion for price of 45 kn.
Ambient and staff 5/5
Food- value for money and quality 2/5
(right at the sea - close to Klimno Harbor) !
5 point for location
5 point for food
1 points for serving
We are two families (6 people) who visited the restaurant and were lucky to find a free table.
We recommend calling...and reserving a table.
We had fried squid (firm but NOT chewy so it was fresh and properly prepared)
Spaghetti Bolognese and 2 meat dishes plus drinks.
Meat was well cooked and very delicious
Portions are normal (not too much not to less).
Overall good value and a nice location
The reason why I award only 3 points of 5 was due to serving.
We did not feel very welcome.
We asked for split bill .
Waiter seemed bored and we felt a bit in a hurry. We asked for a split bill (he puffed and rolled his eyes) .
I asked for grilled squid (1 grilled and 1 fried) but received a fried portion although I especially told him twice I would like the grilled squid.
We tried to communicate in German and English, somehow I couldn’t shake of the feeling of being made fun of.
When we asked for the WiFi pw he just through some words in Croatian while going away :).
The younger staff seems very friendly though and
We asked for a sheet of paper for the kids to draw on, he gave me one but there was also the rolling eyes gestures I did not enjoy.
Given the location and dishes I think the values for money is about right and justified.
We will go back, for sure, many other dishes to try but will ask for another waiter. Sorry.More
We had fresh shrimp for entree, as they arrived freshly this day. As main course we had grilled fish and pork medallion in truffles sauce. Both was very well. The waiter recommended this and we were happy to follow. He was polite and did a...professional job.
In the end the price was reasonable. We couldn't sit directly at the water, since it was already too cold. The atmosphere was therefore alright.More
The best restaurant in Klimno. Great location, directly on the beach, nice terrace. You can come with small boat to the table. Friendly and professional staff. Good diversity of wood, fish and meat. Tasty food, well served. Given the price I expected better food. Definitely...overpriced for a quality they offer.More
Zal is for sure the best location in town and has a variety of local dishes with fresh fish and as well meat dishes. We had a great table and enjoyed a exceptional view incl. fantastic sunset. The only thing I have to mention is...the smell we have been exposed, which was definitely irritating and has spoiled the great evening.More
The staff are generally very friendly and courteous. They have a few offers that go beyond the usual Croatian summer fare. Prices go up in season. Great if you come by small boat - but they don't provide mooring.
