Our family enjoyed this amazing dining experience. Everyone was happy, even those who enjoy pasta with butter. The rest of us had the full array of the menu options. Our favorite was the Steak Tartar served tables side. Indigenous is our favorite way to travel when dining. It will not disappoint.

We saw the reviews on Trip Advisor so we weren't surprised when we were served. Great selection of good Croatian wines too. We had breakfast included with our hotel stay the next day. Just as tasty. I will let the pictures speak for themselves.

The Zinfandel is an elegant restaurant. Blending modern decor with traditional service and innovative cooking. The beat sorbet is a highlight as is the John Dory. The service is first class. The prices are 1/3-1/2 what you would pay for this type of meal in western European capitals. Don't miss out.

You cannot be in a hurry. The food is exquisite. The service started out fantastic but it then dragged on. The waiter's recommendations were excellent but our dinner took 3 hours If you don't mind the wait it's worth a visit

We had breakfast here as part of staying over at the Hotel Esplanade. Service was excellent. The buffet was extensive. Nice choice of hot and cold items. You can also order from the menu. It was a wonderful breakfast. Recommended

Normally I'm hesitant about using hotel restaurants, but Zinfandels in the classic Esplanade hotel is a classic. With its magnificent terrace in summer and cost, classic ambience in winter, this restaurant is a delight. The food was excellent and the service was superb

This is one of the best restaurants in Croatia. The food is great every time and I have to say that the level of service is very impressive especially for a non-Michelin restaurant. Been there both on normal days and on Michelin starred chefs special events. Each time the food was excellent. The atmosphere is perfect for a romantic dinner.... More
