The bistro is not far from the Square, and it's not something you will likely stumble across. It's towards the train station on a smaller, quiet street in the new town. Compared to the food we had in the main eatery areas, this was fantastic!...A small but authentic menu, good choices from heavier meaty dishes to truffles and lighter homemade pastas. The portions were generous, and our server actually recommended that we not order a starter as our mains would be enough. He was right! Really a nice dinner, great service and more of a "foodie" experience than you will get on Tklachiceva.More

Under the radar traditional Croatian restaurant with an interesting menu and local specials. It has a nice wine list and our waiter was very knowledgeable and informative. We learned a lot. Very centrally located and nice decor from when it was a photo studio.

Could not have had a better dinner experience. Food was exceptional and plentiful. Service was impeccable - warm, informative, everything we could ask for. Our waiter even consulted with the Mai tee’s about which direction the sun would be facing during our drive to Plitvice...park the next day!More

Interesting little bistro in the center of Zagreb. Menu with weekl specials. They don't have printed wine list. Food was good and service was very friendly, but extremely slow...

Amazing experience, superb service. Can’t miss with this one. Think owner is always there so anything can’t to wrong, should support that. Great local wines priced much better comparing to the other restaurants around (same brands of course). Highy recommended!!!

Fotic is close to the main square. delicious food, normal prices and fast service. The daily offer can be interesting. All recommendations for informal gatherings with friends.

Fotic is a lovely restaurant very near the centre of Zageb. With a Daily Menu Offer, traditional truffle dishes and warm and welcoming atmosphere, it comes highly recommended.

The menu was poor, the food just avarage. Although we booked the place and preordered the dishes, we had to wait for nearly 2 hours for the main course! The interior is nice, but packed with tables. There is a planty of room for improvement!

Cozy little restaurant in the centre of the city offering excellent food and service. Four of us went there and all the dishes were delicious, paired with some good wine. Staff was really welcoming, funny and available even when place got crowded. They try hard...and you can see it in every detail.More

Good service, food and ambiance. Very relaxing meal. The food is good but not excellent hence the 4 stars. Ideally I’d like to mark 4.5!

We found this gem by accident while walking around Zagreb and managed to get a table for dinner. The food was delicious so we went back for lunch the next day.

I had spied this bistro and pleased I found it for late breakfast. Really quirky and lad who served me was friendly and my poached eggs on toast were cooked to perfection. Great coffee

Returned to the place where the waiter earlier in the day had helped us locate our apartment ... so helpful & prepared to go out of his way to assist two fraught travelers. ( big thanks ) Choice for the evenings dinner was made there...& then really ... and a good choice it turned out to be. We were able to relax over the Chimichinga beef Quesadilla and a Seafood Risotto plus desert, all a stones throw from our apartment. ( I think Fotic have there own accommodation maybe above - worth checking out. ) We returned for Breakfast. A superb way to set you up for the day ahead.More
