With snowy weather outside we decided to eat in at Zinfandels in the Esplanade. Normally hotel restaurants can be mediocre at best, but Zinfandels is no ordinary hotel restaurant. It is one of the best restaurants in the city. Service was excellent. The food was superb and beautifully served. My wife had the potato and garlic soup plus Strukli, and... More

We breakfasted here twice which was very good but at 23 Euro's each I think was a bit pricey for Croatia, however, it was nice. We only had one dinner in the restaurant and they serve nouvelle cuisine which means many things but to be it means small portions which are disguised to look like something else. I will say...

This place is rated among the best restaurants in Zagreb. We were very much looking forward to trying it. We had the table d'hôte (6 courses) and we paired everything with wine with the sommelier's friendly advise. The evening was delightful although perhaps not as nice as expected.

Best experience ever! The amazing food alone is a reason enough to visit the place again, but it was also the exceptionally skilled and friendly staff, so passionate for what they do, that really made our dinner at Zinfandel’s an experience to remember (and repeat soon!). The chanterelle veloute, beef tartar (prepared immaculately at our table!) and Iberico pork cheeks... More

We generally do not go for restaurants in hotels as we were disappointed a number of times but this was highly recommended so we gave it a go. Great food, great service! Portions are small but we left full. We decided to have 3 courses but shared a starter which they presented in two plates. We were given two extra... More

This is one of the best places in Europe to eat beef tartar that is prepared immaculate. In front of you. With all spices necessary. Very good wine list. Interesting menu. And perfect service.

Travelled for two weeks around Croatia before ending in Zagreb. Looking to spend the last of my kuna, I went to the highly recommended Zinfandel's. It was a gorgeous restaurant with lovely staff. Ordered an appetizer, main, and wine. The appetizer was carpaccio and tasted okay. Felt like it needed a bit of citrus. The main was turbot and was... More

We have eaten at some of the most amazing restaurants around the world. The food was out of this world. The day we arrived we had lunch on the terrace. We ordered steamed dumplings ( not what you are thinking) and goat curd mousse and lightly fried shrimp with asparagus cream. Wow! The tastes, presentation and interpretation of what could... More
