Me and my friends had a great experience at this restaurant. Excellent service, very friendly and could answer our questions. We had beef tartare for starter, it's not on the menu but they said they could make it for us, it was one of the best we've ever had, no doubt. Ribeyesteak was good. This place is not cheap but...

Although this restaurant is on the more expensive site compared to average Zadar price range (main course starting at around €20), it's definitely worth it. Waiter was incredibly helpful and informative, friendly while remaining professional. I've had conditioned ramsteak, which was simply awesome, and wife had amberjack, which she loved. The fact they had Chimay - which I'm a fan... More

We did not intend to eat here, because we were staying in the adjoining hotel and wanted to explore. But there was a severe thunder and lightning storm that forced us in. We were nicely surprised by the restaurant's elegance. Great service and nice menu selections, including, of course, fish. Highly recommend.

The food there is in good quality -- the traditional Mediterranean components, fresh seafood with good olive oil, would fit for any seafood mania. The table on the terrace is wonderful for sunshine. The waiters are working with passion, which makes the dining experience even better!

Lovely restaurant. Fresh ingredients. Great service. Amazing tuna tartar. Terrific octopus stew. Beautiful views of the harbour.

Just a perfect size and taste of the late evening dinner. Service worth praising. And a glass of local red wine just perfectly delicious to close the day.

We were visiting Zadar to see what there was to do and see. We walked all over the old town and returned to our hotel (early season and not a lot of restaurants open - cafes, yes). We asked to see the menu and were totally surprised by the delicious options on the menu. One of the must dos so... More

My wife and I were staying at the hotel and also had a lunch and dinner at the adjoining Restaurant Kastel. Both meals were very nice. Lunch was outside in a small,quiet garden area and the food was tasty and the service was fine. Dinner was upstairs in the glassed-in terrace which was very atmospheric, although it did throw us...

We loved our server, Marco, who went above and beyond to make sure that we had the best evening possible. The food was good, but not great. The only downside was that the food needed to be seasoned a bit more, but otherwise it was an excellent meal. Definitely would recommend to anyone visiting Zadar.

I dined there for lots of times and it was wonderful but sadly I was extremely disappointed the last time I ate there. They closed their once gorgeous terrace with windows completely killing the atmosphere. 1 out of 3 of us who ordered the foie gras crème brûlée got the actual fantastic foie gras crème brûlée but the other to...
