“Once a great place to eat in Zagreb, not any more”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

This was once a true "value for money" place to eat. Situated in the city centre, casual lunch was their staple. The food was great simple Italian-style pasta with lovely deserts. Lately the food has gone down in quality below my tolerance point and "value for money" is far gone now. The place however still has good service and charming interior.

“Good service and excellent food!”
Reviewed October 10, 2013

Had a meal in Boban with a big group of people and the service was excellent! The waiter was very patient with all of us.
The food was very good; I had black linguini which I highly reccommend!
Its a great atmosphere and good place if you have a bigger group.

“Great Setting”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

The first thing that strikes you as you enter the restaurant is the impressive brick-vaulted cellars in which it is located and then the well laid-out tables. Basically Italian cuisine but well cooked and presented whilst maintaining excellent value. Service can be a bit slow when they are busy but the ambiance is good and the staff are attentive and polite (it seemed to be staffed by only one waiter and one waitress on the two nights that we visited and they were positively sprinting between the restaurant and the kitchens). I would much prefer to tarry in a good restaurant than be rushed.
It is located slightly out of the centre of Zagreb, to the South of the main square, but is easily reached on foot from all central areas.

“Quick and Simple”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

This Restaurant was downstairs off the street in the basement, lacked a little in atmosphere, but the waiter was helpful and service was good. The food was adequate but not exceptional, you have to order sides to complete you meal, which wasn't clear from the menu. The White wine was average. But a quick and simple meal it was fine

“Convenient Location, Intimate Atmosphere, Great Food, Good Wine Selection!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We ate at Boban's twice while in Zagreb. It came highly recommended by Davor at Hotel Jagerhorn and it did not disappoint! Located in the city center and a short walk through the beautiful squares of Zagreb, it was pleasing to the eye and had a very nice atmosphere. A little pricey but they had nice size portions, our meal was delicious, and they had a nice selection of wines. My favorite meal was "The Rustic"! I highly recommend trying it. I wish I could recreate this dish at home. If only I didn't live about 5,000 miles away I'd definitely visit often just for this dish! The staff was cordial but not overly friendly, however, the food and wine made up for this.
