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

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

Not only is the Esplanade the best hotel in Zagreb, but it also hosts the best restaurant in town. Any dish you order will surprise you.

The Zinfandel is part of the Esplanade Hotel on the square of the railway station which was a stopping off point for the Orient Express. We sat outside which as the sun went down became rather chilly, it should also be said this is expensive working out at £60 per head for amuse bouche, starter, main, dessert, petit fours, wine,...

Located in the Esplanade Hotel is this nicely set out restaurant. The ambience is formal but comfortable and the service of high quality. The meal offered many little touches including a bowl they called chips which was very finely cooked potato. Then came out courtesy of the kitchen an amuse bouche. We were not entirely sure what it was, but... More

Very good. The attention is excellent with very nice waiter. Excellent local food and good portions. House wine not so good. Prices in the upper range but not expensive. Went for lunch but understand it is as good at night
