It was Sunday and when I was invited to this restaurant for a business lunch, I thought that I won't enjoy in a restaurant which is a part of a hotel. But I was so pleasantly surprised. Since I've entered the restaurant, I've forgotten my attitude. The restaurant has a real urban flaire, is very nice, with all kinds of sitting possibilities. I am a meat cutter and I know a good piece of steak, and this restaurant exceeded my expectations. Wow, the steak melt in my mouth. Service was top notch. My glass of water and my glass of wine was always full. If you search for a great meal with great urban atmosphere, this is your place. You will feel spoiled and stay there longer that you've intended at first.

Sounds like I'm going against the grain with the reviews here, but....had lunch here...distinctly unimpressive....ordered chicken ceasar...limp salad, no taste, seemed to lack the basic ingredients of a chicken ceasar. They might be good at steaks, but a basis salad seemed to be beyond them.

I am a meat lover! I love all kinds of meat, but since I have spent a good portion of my life in USA, I appreciate good steaks and burgers.
Although I was born in Zagreb, and I love it and it's restaurant scene, I pretty much gave up on finding a restaurant that will offer me a really good steak.

Thanks to my business partner who stayed at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel and his idea to grab a quick lunch in their OXBO restaurant, I have found my favorite restaurant in Zagreb. I had no idea they even existed, and not only that! That they have the best beef in Zagreb! Oh joy!!!

We took what they call an OXBO salad with black Angus flank steak and baby shrimp (I thought it would be a nice meal for a quick lunch)...it was everything but a quick lunch! After having a perfectly cooked flank stake with the perfect amount of seasoning I went for my favorite- a BURGER. Now, I've had my share of burgers in life, but this burger was extraordinary! Love the homemade ketchup, love the homemade potatoes, love the burger!

I went back today-still fascinated!

We were drawn to the restaurant because of it was recommended as a great stake place. The stakes were really excellent, the rest of the food was a bit over seasoned for my taste, but maybe it was meant to suit an American palate. The deserts were rather creative and mostly fruit inspired. The atmosphere and setting is lovely although it's right in the lobby of a big business hotel.

This was my third visit to Oxbo since the opening and I am as satisfied with the experience as I was the first time round. The steaks are great, done exactly as requested, meat is tender and melts in your mouth. Oxbo is already famous for them in Zagreb. But I also enjoy trying out other food on the menu and their pea soup with Mediterranean herbs is to die for - like lying on the beach in the summer - I didn't think it could get any better. But now they have this corn soup that takes you to a different galaxy. The desserts are also great, the cheese forrest fruit tart is delicious and makes you want to start eating all over again in the same evening, from the appetizers such as the spinach and cottage cheese salad to the main course - they offer really good salmon (steak is always my first choice). IThe atmosphere is cool, done in the steakhouse style, and the service is impeccable. definitely recommend the restaurant.
