First and foremost, the wait time for our food was absolutely absurd. We waited for a staggering one hour before anything arrived at our table. I understand that good food takes time, but an hour for a simple meal is pushing it, especially considering the...lackluster outcome. When the food finally made its grand entrance, it was anything but impressive. I ordered the signature pljeskavica, and I could swear I've had better at a fast-food joint. The patty was dry and overcooked, lacking any discernible flavor. It felt as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp for far too long, losing whatever appeal it might have had. The sides were no better. The fries were limp and cold, as if they had been reheated multiple times. Even the salad seemed like an afterthought – wilted lettuce and a few sad tomatoes thrown together without any care. To make matters worse, the service was shockingly indifferent. The staff seemed more interested in chatting amongst themselves than ensuring the customers were satisfied. I attempted to address my concerns with the server, but my feedback was met with a dismissive attitude that left a bad taste in my mouth, quite literally. In conclusion, my experience at Tvornica Pljeskavice Kosta was one I would rather forget. The combination of a one-hour wait for mediocre food and lackluster service makes it a place I would not recommend to even my worst enemy. Save yourself the time and disappointment – look elsewhere for a dining experience worth your hard-earned money.More

This place was recommended to us by a local lady. We reserved a table, as advised, even on a Wednesday evening. A very unimposing location and building. A 15 minute tram ride ( 13) west of Zagreb but don’t let that put you off! We...were greeted warmly and sat down quickly. There was only one guy serving but we didn’t wait for anything. He provided a menu in English and couldn’t have been more helpful. The food was fabulous, simple but tasty. I had the duvrek, a side of salad and some fries. Cooked perfectly and served within 20 minutes of us being seated. The place was full of locals enjoying the same delicious food. We paid €35 for two mains, 2 sides, a beer, a coke and two coffees! A bargain! If we were staying longer we would definitely go again as the menu is vast.More

Went here for a friday late lunch. Since it is a relatively small place, especially in winter it is smart to reserve in advance. I took the grilled burger with cheese which was really good, however it was not perfect as it ised to be...in the past at the same location. I am not sure if this was a one time thing or it is generally a bit worse than before. The side dishes were good, eapecially the champignons and the sweet paprika. They also have a solid selection of beer including some craft ones which are good. Prices are average and acceptable.More

Fantastic barbecue/grill, vast selection of balkan style food, nicely made, quality ingredients. I had an đevrek, minced meat in shape of doughnut, spicy with kajmak (cream) in center. Side was fantastic grilled paprika and Velebitsko beer. For dessert - baklava. Five stars!

Fantastic meat experience. As for a “big” guy I usually take seconds, but here one meal and salad was right the measure. Put your trust in the waiter and just take care not to over endulge.

We ordered food by phone and waited another hour when we came to pick it up. The waiter misunderstood our phone order, but nevertheless they didn’t start the preparation of food for another 45 minutes. Very bad service for customers. We will not return. Ever.

Meet (steaks, čevapi, pljeskavice, you name it) was perfect. There’s a big selection of meet (poultry, pork, beef) - from high quality, fresh and perfectly prepared. Selection of side dishes is decent and portions are big. The staff is friendly and quick. All you have...to do is to make a reservation because the place is always full. The price is reasonable.More
