Description: Welcome to Tinel! Enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient Zadar town on the peninsula mixed with all the buzz of the near-by piazza, the Zadar’s main square.In the old Dalmatian homes, the room used for socializing and relaxation was referred to as “tinel”. In Italy and in the South of France it is the name used for dining rooms or refectories. So what a better place to experience Mediterranean and Dalmatia, the history of the old-age towns built from stone and gastronomical secretes of their residents, then in the very center of the over three thousand years old town of Zadar.Restaurant TINEL is a restaurant, a bistro, a pizzeria and a spaghetteria. It is a casual and relaxed eatery, with friendly crew and excellent chefs. We offer traditional Mediterranean and Dalmatian cuisine with a touch of creativity and contemporary themes. Whether you look for pasta, pizza, salads, meats or fish, you will find it here. Join us, relax and enjoy… TINEL is the place for the good mood and the great food.

“Unpretentious, friendly and good food too!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

We called in for lunch on Saturday, the weather was lovely so we sat outside on the terrace. The waiter was attentive, we ordered salad, which was fresh, tasty and a good sized dishful. The pasta and pizza looked impressive, and certainly smelt good too. Our fellow diners seemed to enjoy them! Value for money, and just the kind of place you need for a quick, tasty lunch

“Cosy atmosphere, good food and portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012 via mobile

We would recommend this address. Good portions, honest price. We had a pizza and a salad and a good tasting tomato soup.
The singer with guitar makes this place even more magically.

“Nice atmosphere, good food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

The location is great, We ate a john dory and the green pasta with prawns and both were excellent. The prices are moderate and the staff was very helpful. Great option for a good dinner in the city center.

“Very nice restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I went to this restaurant for lunch and next day for dinner. Location is very good, city centre so it was crowded for dinner. We tried very tasty spaghetti and risotto for lunch and fish and steak for dinner. Price is not high. At evening there was an old man playing guitar (romantic). Next time we will go this place again.

“One of the best options in city centre”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2012

I have been here again with my familly last week, and we were more than satisfied. We ate there 3 times, and I was very curious due to some poor evaluations I found here. We tried pasta with clams (vongole), green pasta with vegetable and shrimps, swordfish, fish fillet in truffles sauce, sliced steak, smoked swordfish stuffed with cheese and everything was great. Prices are moderate and place is good value for money.
