We tried only two dishes - some kind of ravioli and mini burgers. The first dish was very good but the burgers were average (lacking taste). The atmosphere is perfect for couples and the owner was there to greet us.

We had a great first meal in Zagreb here. We were hungry and jet lagged but couldn't decide what to eat -a few small plates were perfect for us. We had the lebneh (which had amazing seasoning), tuna burgers (2 to an order, very filling), and the kale/cheese pastry (3 large pieces to an order, with a side salad). All... More

This place has a nice location. It is located near city center but it is peaceful, quiet and private place with beautiful terrace. They have a very good vine list and food is excellent. Little bit different and interesting food and they change menu all the time, I like that very much but portions are very small :(. I do... More

now it's my own fault, that's why 3 instead of 1 or 2 stars... You see I knew going in I don't like the owners cuisine from all the TV shows she did. I knew her technique was sub-par but I went, I went twice to make sure it was the food and not me that was not good. in... More

Mali bar serve innovative food, not all local, and have a decent selection of wines. The rations are small, so do not expect to get full on one dish. On the value side, the place is a bit pricey for the local circumstances. The staff are friendly though a bit confused and not always attentive. Book in advance and ask... More

I visited with a group of friends and we had a good time. Small bar, with caracter and nice food served quickly and without fault. It is not a croatian menu, but contains sine interesting dishes.

This place is great for tapas like dining. Food is delicious, always something new on the menu (depending on the season), some classic bites are not to be missed (mini burgers, bruschetta, pate). Prefer this place in summer time; popular with locals, great choice of wine... Only reason I am not giving 5 stars is that I rarely give such... More

Interesting place - a wide mix of cuisines on the light-bite menu, ranging from Euro classics to Asian-tinged treats, but even a random selection seemed to work pretty well together and came in a perfectly-paced stream of small dishes. Highlights were the dumplings (written "jiyozi" so presumably a spin on gyoza), the sliders were decent too, chicken wings were salty... More

It's the second time I've been here and it was as delicious as the first time. The food is super fresh and seasonal and they have great Croatian wines to choose from. The service was good, at times a bit slow but hey, we had time. I would definitely recommend their mini Hamburgers and chicken wings. They were just delicious.... More

Went there with friends, everything we ordered was tasty and the wine was good. A bit on the expensive side. If you want to be full, expect to order three courses.
