Nice little restaurant with great value for money. It has a great position, near the Zagreb market with a view of the cathedral. The cellar inside is also charming and nice. I really like the The Grič Witch, and I recommend it. Based on my previous visits, Maksimir roll and the Steak are a great choice as well. The french... More

we were initially so pleased we had managed to get a booking at short notice- then found we had been squeezed into the bar area where we were somewhat ignored by the serving staff and had to suffer the cold draught everytime somewhere came in or went out .... a lot! Server was friendly but in the end let things... More

Food was horrible, as if they don't have a cook at all!!! (Infact waiters agreed that the food is bad since their cook is on vacation) We returned some food that we could not eat since it didn't taste Like food but they charged everything they brought on the table. Pork was raw, mushrom soup was boiled cream with few... More

Thanks to warm and efficient service, the very first dinner in Croatia became so memorable and wonderful! I asked so many questions about menu and wine, but one kind clerk (I forgot to ask his name though) gave recommendations patiently, which helped us a lot. Thank you!

Went the first night we arrived in Zagreb. The service was really fast and helpful with the orders and they were explaining the dishes to us. I got the pork medallion and it was delicious, the portion was good as well. Maybe a little less sauce would be better but that is personal preference really. Overall i enjoyed every bite.... More

We went there for an early dinner. We got the whole cellar for us, the waiter was extremely kind and happy to advice us. The food was great and the bill moderate

The restaurant was empty when we arrived (although we did make reservations). There's a neat wine cellar in the restaurant and is worth a peek if you're sitting on the terrace. We started with the bread made with cheese which was nice. For main courses we got the plsanica stubica (prok with plums and pasta) which was very nice. We... More

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. The restaurant's vaulted ceiling with brickwork that nicely stands out creates a unique and warm atmosphere. It is here that supreme pleasures of traditional Zagreb cuisine blend with scents of history and city legends.

Our goal was to combine modern and traditional in both the interior design and on the plate so we browsed through an old cookbook from 1854 that we found in the Zagreb City Museum, looking for ideas. We did not want to exclude authentic Croatian tastes from our dishes, but we also added some unique ingredients to all our traditional menu items.
