The restaurant Lanterna na Dolcu (Lanterna at the Dolac Market) was opened on 10 September 2010 in the magical atmosphere of an old manor. Brothers Tomislav and Ivan shared the same vision from the beginning - to offer traditional Zagreb food at reasonable prices at a restaurant with a pleasant family vibe. It wasn't long before word about the Lanterna restaurant at the Dolac Market spread all the way to London. Every morning, we get ingredients from Dolac ladies called kumice who sell their produce at the market and we guarantee that each food item used in our kitchen is fresh. The restaurant is located in one of the oldest streets in the city's old centre, in an over 300 years old basement.

Found this place on Trip Advisor and it did not disappoint. There was no room on the outside dining area so they let us eat in the 300 year old brick basement area that is set up beautifully. We had the whole room to ourselves....Service was very good with friendly staff. We had the pork medallions and the trout with a side of potatoes. It felt like a joke cooked meal and was delicious.More

Set in a busy part of Zagreb, Lanterna was the perfect environment for a peaceful, romantic evening. The service was friendly and inviting, the food delicious. We tried the slow cooked veal and the turkey stuffed with chard. Worth a special mention was the dessert-...a special family recipe. Highly recommended!More

We had an incredibly long international travel day today and barely stumbled upon this restaurant with our eyes half closed. We left with huge smiles on our faces from the amazing service and the two pork dishes we ate that my wife exclaimed that the...pork chops were the best she had ever had in her life! I got the pork roulettes with a sage prosciutto reduction it was divine! The delicious local beers were just icing on the cake as they were so thoughtfully curated and selected for our meals. This place is the real deal!More

This was out last meal in Zagreb, and wouldn't have dreamed to pic a better place for my wife and I to celebrate our 10th year wedding anniversary! The place was really cozy and the weather was perfect so that we can sit outside. We...were promptly greeted by Ivan, who took great care of us throughout the entire evening. He was so attentive, professional, and very friendly. He also gave us some great recommendations for dinner, and everything he recommended was excellent! My wife had the tomato soup, which was delicious! There was 5 of us, and we tried every dish on the menu. I definitely loved the pork dish the best, as the sauce was unbelievable, and the pork perfectly cooked. My wife went with the steak pasta, which was also incredibly tasty, though slightly over powering by the truffle oil. One of my friend had the risotto, and it was also beautifully prepared! The atmosphere was very chill, and the bottles of wine well priced. But the highlight of our meal was Ivan bringing my wife and I a cake, with the number "10" for candles. It was such a nice gesture, and we truly enjoyed every bite of it! I highly recommend going there for dinner, as Ivan and his brother really know how to cook and host people!More

Stopped for lunch here and sat outside. We had pumpkin soup, homemade makaruni pasta with truffles and the turkey roulade. Everything was delicious and service was super friendly and attentive!
