Went here without reading the reviews first. However, it turned out that this place is pretty good! I ordered the pizza and thought it was better then average. But, my boyfriend ordered the lamb and it was fantastic! He was very happy. Service was friendly and prices were reasonable.

Located in the hearth of old city, Tinel is one of the best restaurants that I have visited lately. Beautiful place with very kind staff. The food was fresh and delicious. I have ordered grilled ramsteak in truffle sauce with corn flour. Very nice ambiance. Definitely I'll back!

The restaurant Tinel is located in the center of the old Town of Zadar, in a nice small street. The place is nice, quite small but nicely decorated. The staff was very friendly and efficient. They let me enough time to enjoy my lunch. The menu proposed a nice choice of risotos, pasta, seafood and Croatian specialities. My main course... More

The restaurant is located in the heart of Zadar, right by the city square. Me and my husband decided to try out this place for dinner because of the pleasant atmosphere and made no mistake. My tuna was cooked perfectly and nicely spiced and juicy, my husband had the famous Dalmatian specialty "crni rizot" (black cuttlefish risotto) and said it... More

Welcome to Tinel! Enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient Zadar town on the peninsula mixed with all the buzz of the near-by piazza, the Zadar’s main square.In the old Dalmatian homes, the room used for socializing and relaxation was referred to as “tinel”. In Italy and in the South of France it is the name used for dining rooms or refectories. So what a better place to experience Mediterranean and Dalmatia, the history of the old-age towns built from stone and gastronomical secretes of their residents, then in the very center of the over three thousand years old town of Zadar.Restaurant TINEL is a restaurant, a bistro, a pizzeria and a spaghetteria. It is a casual and relaxed eatery, with friendly crew and excellent chefs. We offer traditional Mediterranean and Dalmatian cuisine with a touch of creativity and contemporary themes. Whether you look for pasta, pizza, salads, meats or fish, you will find it here. Join us, relax and enjoy… TINEL is the place for the good mood and the great food.
