So professional and friendly service. Very relaxing place and has greatest food at affordable pricing. Never have I tried such good quiche. I was doing some business over there and the staff was really kind.

We found this restaurant on Monday by chance, after going around the city for 20 min looking for a place to have dinner. The presentation seemed ok, but as we didn´t have any expectation, Bistro Kalelarga ended to be a great surprise! The food was delicious, from the way the polenta was prepared to the cake that we had as... More

Ate here on our last day as wanted a break from pizza and this was excellent. Staff were friendly and the food very good - squid ink risotto, prawns on rice, two kids bolognaise, .5lt carafee of wine, apple juice and Sprite all for around 35 pounds. Highly recommended

We came here for dinner for our first night in Croatia after reading favourable reviews. the food was mediocre and overly greasy. we ordered an octopus salad, it was drenched in oil and the seafood wasn't fresh. We also had the black ink gnocchi which was starchy and overly dry. Not sure if the restaurant had an off night, but... More

We went to Gourmet Kalelarga on recommendation of our host. I had a very pumpkin risotto. The crunchiness of the pumpkin went perfectly with the creaminess of the rice. My companion had a big salad with cheese and grains that was well presented and very tasty. To start we both had soup, pumpkin for her, chicken and vegetables for me.... More

The food here is simply amazing - probably the best that we had during our stay in Croatia. Every element of the food on the plate went together. The service was great with the waiters really caring about the food. When we are back in Zadar we will defiantly be eating her again.

Chicken noodle soup and a sour cherry cheesecake my wife still raves about. She really liked the sour cherries, but I thought the cheesecake was a bit fluffy.

Came here on our last day for lunch. Just a random choice. As a coeliac, this was a great find. Menu was clearly labelled with Gluten free options. Waiter was excellent. The food was the best we had since arriving. I had lamb and my wife had steak. Both excellent. The cakes for dessert were super.

This place was great! It's not easy to rave about a continental breakfast but I find myself doing that exactly. Food was delicious and getting a little bit of everything was very filling and satisfying. Service was the best I have experienced in Croatia by a mile! My favourite meal in Croatia so far and a nice relaxed setting. Absolutely... More
