The outside terrace is really nice, and the girl who served us was real nice and polite, but the overall experience was not: 1. Food tasted really instant (supermarket quality) and way to far from Adriatic sea taste. 2.We had few courses, plates were not...changed. Salad served on dessert plate Whole thing felt like really simple and cheap restaurant, but it wasn’t cheap at all. If you are looking for something domestic, authentic and honest- this is not the place. Croatia and Zadar have much more to offer.More

A very fresh and delicious restaurant. I took the cheese as appetizer and the grilled squid stuffed with shrimps and pesto as main course. Both where absolutely delightful. Service was very friendly and helpful.

It was a very good, delicious and fresh restaurant. We went with a family of 4 and everyone loved it. We didn’t have to wait long for the food. Overall would recommend.

Came across this little gem of a restaurant away from the hustle and bustle, hidden behind high walls. A bit of serenity under cooling trees. We stopped in for lunch. Delicious food and very accommodating staff Such a lovely surprise

Good meat, vegetables could be more, good wine. Just the service was not great. We paid for a water and bread we didnt get or ask for. He should better start using a computer. The wine we ordered wasn't there anymore, so as alternative he...advised the most expensive one. Of course I could have said no, but this is not the way to do it. The wine was average of taste.More

My husband daughter and I ate here last night. We went as we were staying close by and had looked it up on here, it did not disappoint. Excellent food and prices.

I went for dinner my first night in Zadar based on the recommendation of the owner of the studio apartment I was renting across the alley. When I went in they told me that there was only seating in the restaurant not in the back...because there was a party there. It ended up being a wedding reception for about 25 people. Despite this, the service was excellent and the food was served promptly. The black gnocchi with shrimp was spectacular. The local fried fish was good and well prepared. The chocolate cake (that I got to go, so they gave me a plate and simply asked that I return it the next day) was rich and decadent. The house red was very good. Overall you can't go wrong here.More

Off the beaten track this restaurant is popular with locals. Indoors it is a little bit claustrophobic but the two terraces are very cosy. Staff are somewhat inattentive but friendly and accommodating. We had fantastic tuna, perfectly grilled to our order, and very tasty pork....Starters were nice too, although slightly too expensive. Make sure to book a table.More

Nos sentimos estafados. Pedimos calamares fritos para la niña y nos cobraron como si fueran calamares rellenos de camarones, carísimos (la cuenta estaba escrita en croata pero la traducimos). El servicio fue muy lento aunque no había casi nadie. / We felt ripped. We ordered...for our little kid a dish with fried calamari and french fries and charged us much more expensive than any other dish in the menu. This dish was not on the menu because they have more elaborated recipies in it. It was almost empty but service was very slow.More

Calm and cosy. This place is an oasis away from the crowd and noise of main tourist restaurants in Zadar. We had scampi buzara and grilled sea bass. The fish was fresh and well cooked, really delicious. The waiter was very professional and in tune...with the calm atmosphere. Definitely recommended.More
