Description: The restaurant Lanterna na Dolcu (Lanterna at the Dolac Market) was opened on 10 September 2010 in the magical atmosphere of an old manor. Brothers Tomislav and Ivan shared the same vision from the beginning - to offer traditional Zagreb food at reasonable prices at a restaurant with a pleasant family vibe. It wasn't long before word about the Lanterna restaurant at the Dolac Market spread all the way to London. Every morning, we get ingredients from Dolac ladies called kumice who sell their produce at the market and we guarantee that each food item used in our kitchen is fresh. The restaurant is located in one of the oldest streets in the city's old centre, in an over 300 years old basement. The restaurant's vaulted ceiling with brickwork that nicely stands out creates a unique and warm atmosphere. It is here that supreme pleasures of traditional Zagreb cuisine blend with scents of history and city legends. Our goal was to combine modern and traditional in both the interior design and on the plate so we browsed through an old cookbook from 1854 that we found in the Zagreb City Museum, looking for ideas. We did not want to exclude authentic Croatian tastes from our dishes, but we also added some unique ingredients to all our traditional menu items.

I was a little disappointed in this location. the restaurant looks quite nice but only from surface. if you look more into deep you see many unnecessary things. the service is a little overdoing. the food in comparison to many other places in zagreb was not original and i had the feeling that it is pre-cooked. potatoes had been very dry. it is okay for normal food but pricewise I do not see a point in comparison to others in the old town of zagreb.

Thomas greeted us at the door shaking our hands and asking our names! He then called my mom and I by name for the rest of the evening (my dad was "The Mister".. Haha)! Service by Thomas was brilliant.. We had some good laughs with him! The food was delicious and very reasonably priced. Overall a lovely experience.. Would happily go back!

Went here with my boyfriend on a Tuesday night in March. When we arrived we were the only people in the restaurant but as time went on the restaurant quickly filled up and when we left there were no tables available! Greeted and served by a lovely gentleman very friendly and attentive. Beautiful restaurant, very pretty. I had the tomato soup and chicken roll and it was really good, some of the best food iv eaten. My boyfriend ate the veal and he said it was great. Overall a really nice restaurant and if we were to return to Zagreb we would definitely be back!
