Placed in a quiet street, though in the center, Basement offers you a wide range of wines and a proper selection of croatian food. That you don't have a good knowledge of wines doesn't matter, the staff will give you an explanation of each one, and they'll find which wine fits your tastes. Although, they took too much time to prepare the plate, it was worth it.
Finally, I should remark the pleasant atmosphere, achieved through a nice decoration and jazz music.

We had been looking for a company that could take us on a wine tasting tour around the Zagreb area but we didn't find any so we decided to go here and ask if they could arrange a small wine tasting for us. And it was no problem. The very nice waiter served us a selection of both red and white local croatian wines. All with a small introduction of each wine. Admittedly we went there in the early evening so it wasn't very busy and that might have helped on the excellent service.

Decided to stop off for drinks and some nibbles whilst spending a day in Zagreb with wife and three kids. I think they must have just been setting up the outside area for the evening as when we went past earlier in the day it seemed very much closed. Service from Marko was excellent, helpful and with a smile and fortunately for us great English. We had a selection of drinks and after his description of the different regional Croatian platters, Dalmation, Istrian etc we went for the Croatian platter of cured meats, cheeses etc - and it was excellent! Can't comment on things we didn't try but for us it was great and we'd go their again for the same!

I went her with a group of friends that like the whole winebar scene. I myself am not that kind of person, more into regular bars. This place offers a good selection of wines and the bar is in a basement which is very nice and gives a whole french wine feeling. I reall liked this place and will revisit..

Cute Lille spot with a great little patio, service was mediocre but the wine recommendations good and the selection and quality were fantastic, they only have a meat or a cheese place for food which were both tasty.
