Unique environment created at the Zinfandel's and superb cuisine that combines excellent local ingredients with tastes from all over the world are the winning combination for fine dinning experience in the heart of Zagreb. Building up on the Esplanade tradition of the finest cuisine, Ana Grgic, young & charming Chef, is refreshing the local restaurant offer by connecting Zagreb with the Mediterranean and continental Europe. The Zinfandel's menu features delicious, modern and creative dishes based on fish, meat, poultry or vegetables. Each dish is prepared with great care and sense of beauty.
