We had a lovely dining experience here, I’d highly recommend. The menu had a wide variety to choose from and the server, Beni, was knowledgeable with recommendations.

First day, first restaurant in Zadar. The food and service were wonderful. I had the Bruschetta Prosciutto and Fish Soup (which was delicious) and the Scampi Buzaran (?)..., was not prepared for my dish. I thought I ordered Shrimp Scampi ( I did not, the...error was mine), the waiter was kind enough to explain to me how I was to eat the shrimp; in detail once he saw my confusion. It brought on a laugh, which was nice. The dish was delicious but a bit messy. The price was fair for the meal and the ambience was lovely.More

What a lucky find this was. My husband and I passed by in the early evening and received such a friendly greeting from Enea at the door that I promised we would call back later, which we did (with a fellow hotel resident). All the...staff were welcoming, but Enea, who was our waitress, was particularly skilled at her job. She gave advice on the wine (it was delicious) and also agreed to make a slight change to the menu for me - her manner was both charming and efficient. I hope her boss appreciates her! The food was absolutely delicious and very good value. We chose the two set menus: three courses with additional bread. I never thought I could wax lyrical about bread rolls, but honestly they were really, really good. We all had the bruschetta starter, then I had the prawn risotto and my companions had the pork steaks - all meals were cooked to perfection. A blackcurrant panna cotta finished the meal perfectly. There was no fault to find with anything and plenty to praise, in fact I popped into the kitchen (with permission) to thank the chefs personally.More

Cute little place with excellent food. It's not just the food that makes a place great. It's also the people. Boris was fantastic. Wonderful service! He even went above and beyond to find us a drink we wanted to try when they were out. If...you read this Boris. Thank you again for everything!More

We were a group of 20 that happened upon this restaurant while walking the city and I can't begin to say how lucky we were!! Family run, we got into conversation with one of the owners and he was such a great guy (definitely made...for the restaurant business). I can't say enough about the food and service, except if you're ever in the area you MUST stop in!! I would 100% dine here again!!More

Appetizers were really good. For the main course, we had the 2-person fish platter. The fish had a really nice char from the grill and was very delicious, but the shrimp were very little and overcooked. We had a very friendly waitress whom really served...us according to our needs.More

Found this restaurant just walking. I saw in the very first place that all the waiter wear an uniform which is not usual. I spoke with Enea asking a particular dish as I had problems with stomach. No problem at all. It was the 4th...restaurant, all denied. Good atmosphere, the owner (I think) was very friendly and smiling. Enea the waitress was very kind and professional reserving me a table outside. 5 stars only to her behaviour. I' ll be backMore

We have visited more restaurants in Croatia and picked up this one because of location and good ranking. The restaurant was full of people but waiter was very kind to find us a table for 6. That was organised very well. We had Octopus salat...but there were more potatoes than usual and it was nothing special. Like eating potatoes only… Ingredients were ok, but that’s all. Kids had Spaghetti bolognese and were satisfied.More

We have a very big group & are visiting from Hawai’i. 90% of our group work in the hospitality industry & this was by far one of the best dining experiences we’ve had! They were able to accommodate all 30 of us. The service from...EVERY single person who worked there was genuine, thoughtful & very engaging. As someone who’s worked in the industry for 22 years, I am always aware of every restaurant’s staff, how they move & support each other. Service was flawless! We ordered 2 whole fish that were caught today & everything from texture to flavor was AMAZING! We like to eat family style, so we ordered fried calamari, seafood risotto, black risotto, octopus carpaccio, groppo steak, lamb shank, & truffle gnocchi. The quality of food was amazing, but the service is really what made this a memorable experience for us!More

We went there twice on a recent visit to Zadar, once with family and once with friends. We loved it both times and appreciated having a genuine choice for vegetarians. It's a busy but well organised restaurant. The service was fantastic. We had the same...wonderful waitress both times and really appreciated her attention.More

Ten of us enjoyed our time and meal at Groppo on a Saturday evening and we are so happy we chose this restaurant. Bennie and Boris expertly led us through the menu with recommendations teaching us along the way. We had starters, soups, and finally...the sea bass, which was excellent. We never desired anything throughout our meal and the service was wonderful as well. The gentlemen were incredibly knowledgeable about their menu and very patient with our many questions. I highly recommend trying this wonderful restaurant.More
