Description: Although keeping its well-known tradition for more than 50 years, „2 Ribara“ restaurant is a modern and refined place to dine. It is situated in the very center of the old city of Zadar, the essence of the town's peninsula. The restaurant offers a variety of carefully prepared dishes, including fresh fish or tasty meat meals, fine pasta courses or various pizzas baked in a traditional wood-fired oven. All menus will surely be complemented by a wide range of carefully selected local wines from Zadar area. We also organize events for larger parties, such as wedding banquets, diverse receptions and other festivities of such kind. Our seating capacity can be extended for such purposes so that our hall can accomodate up to 100, while the terrace holds 70 people. It's excellence is praised by the Mayor of Zadar who presented „2 Ribara“ with an award „Nasmijeseno sunce“ for the best restaurant in the tourist season 2011. More global, we earned the Trip Advisor's „Certificate of Excellence“ for consistently earning great reviews from travelers. Not to stop at that, our restaurant is still constantly among Top 10 restaurants in Zadar. Our perfect location and impeccable lasting reputation along with amazing food and domestic beverages will definitely allure you to come and visit us as soon as possible.

“Amazing Food & Family/Large Group Friendly”
Reviewed April 22, 2013

We stumbled upon this restaurant and were intrigued by its new appearance and friendly staff. We left and explored other restaurant menus only to quickly return with welcomed smiles. The kitchen is partially enclosed with glass and you can look through the glass and watch the pizza being made in the wood fire oven...the kids loved this!!! We had two kids ages 3 & 5 with us and the children's menu was perfect - both food selection and price! I had the fish and my husband had a local pork dish and both were absolutely amazing. They were cooked perfect and the flavors were spot on, just what we were looking for! Later the restaurant got very crowded and even hosted a group of about 20 people. The staffed moved tables to accommodate people and everyone around us was laughing and really enjoying the food. Oh, and leave room for dessert as they are really, really good! Highly recommend eating here!

“Don't eat lunch anywhere else!”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

The best value lunch in Zadar! In a 2-day stay in zadar I ate lunch here the first day. Wary of 'tourist' menus, I nonetheless ordered the 'fish menu' at a ridiculous 55 kuna. Imagine my surprise to be srverd a delicious seafood risotto, followed by lightly fried squid with french fries and a small leaf salad, then a delicious cream, chocolate-topped flan. Plus a great-value glass of house malvasia. The fact that the restaurant was crowded out with French tourists says it all - they know good food when they see it. I then went back the next day - expecting to eat the same again - only to find they actually offered a totally different but equally toothsome 3-course meal once more.

Don't each lunch anywhere else!

“Restaurant for a good feeling”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

My family is a big fan of „Dva ribara“ restaurant. We go there quite often for a weekend lunch, not only because of good food, but for pleasant ambience and really exceptional service. Also note that out of the main touristic period restaurant offers daily two menus, fish or meat menu, for only 55 kn (cca 7,5 euro). Menu includes savor, main dish and dessert. Children menus (main dish smaller size + one pancake) are for free ! Restaurant is located in an old town, easy to find, close to the courthouse. I can recommend it to everyone!

We dined at the 2 Ribaras several nights ago on the recommendation of our Apartments manager, Katarina. It's off season now and as we were told Croatians do not dine out a lot so it was very quiet. I had the menu for the day - tuna pâté, fillet of fish and a dessert ( cost 55 Kuna or just under $10Aud) and it was excellent, as was the service.
