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.

We went on Sunday night, since it was great weather we sat outside . A guy was playing some guitar and singing , wonderful ambiance. We both had steak , I would recommend the rump with the wine and honey. The desserts was fantastic , Panna cotta aswell as a ice cream cake with nougat .....Delicious

the wait offered nicely to keep our luggage insideso we had room on our table. He took time to review the menu with us and indicate the vegetarian options, offered to modify some of the salads as well to make it vegetarian. We finally ordered a nice big plate with different vegetables and polenta. The location is lovely, just in the centered a little behind so very quiet. The choose for color and the decoration make it a very nice romantic place.

Healthy meals, good service and reasonable price, in the corner of the main square in the old town. Owners also have the Tinel Rooms which are great accommodation too

This was the worst experience on our 7day trip to Zadar. We came for dinner and waiter was serving us in a hoodie! He looked dirty and fake friendly. The food was average, meat was overcooked and dry, pasta was without salt at all. Tried to salt it but, it was not much better. Would not recommend.

Hi, davordevic80

I am very unpleasant surprised your comments. I'm sorry and that you did not like our food. You should immediately call the waiter. He would definitely find the best solution for you. All my employees are educated professionals so it is impossible that the waiter was dirty and fake friendly.
Best regadrs,

It's a combination of things that creates an experience, and Tinel has a lot to offer. The food is really good, and few things we tried were truly amazing, on par to the best Italian restaurants in New York City (quite a few of which are, as I learned, actually operated or owned by Croatians). The atmosphere of the old town and the view of the main town square with all the buzz and happenings, with a table on a side street that still allows a level of privacy. Combined with a charismatic owner who is always there to welcome and entertain guests, but also to run, take care of or bring whatever a guest might need, all the ingredients for a good mood and a great food are there. If - no, when I visit Croatia again, we'll be in Tinel for sure.
