Feeling hungry in Zagreb? You are looking for a great restaurant with amazing food but it is just too much choice? Check out our list of Top 10 Zagreb Restaurants and enjoy. You can also find recommendations on our summer flyer 2019.
1. Konoba Didov San
First on our list of Top 10 Zagreb Restaurants is Konoba Didov San. If you are looking for a traditional Croatian food – this is a must! In the very center of the old part of Zagreb, in Mletačka 11 on a hill called Grič, find your seat and start a gastronomic trip you’ll never regret. A restaurant “Konoba Didov san“ (which means Grandpa’s Dream) is actually a Dalmatian tavern and it will impress you with the amount and quality of authentic Croatian dishes.
There’s so much to recommend, but let us focus on the very best food, like Grandpa’s and Grandma’s pans. The Grandpa’s pan include: lamb and veal cutlets, veal steak and bacon served with fresh veggies and rustic potatoes – all served in a pan. The Granma’s pan is very similar, but made of turkey meat.
You can try high quality Croatian wines, but also domestic ones like kujundžuša or vranac. – This is the best and the cheapest wine in town, you won’t find it anywhere else. Of course, leave some space for traditional cake called Imotska torta made of almonds and nuts.
2. Stari fijaker 900
The restaurant Stari Fijaker 900 is located in Mesnička street, only 5 minutes away from the main city square- Jelačić square. This street links Lower with Uppper Town and it is a historical area where city fortresses, city houses and mansions once used to be.
Stari Fijaker 900 offers a full menu of authentic traditional culinary delicacies that are proudly representing the Zagreb-Zagorje region of Croatia. We highly recommend you to try dishes named “punjena paprika“, “sarma“, “purica s mlincima” and of course “štrukli” – the originally Croatian dishes that you will want to have again and again. Restaurant Stari Fijaker 900 is well known for its homemade pastries and breads. You can choose from corn breads, beer-piston calipers, scones with cracklings and many others. Go ahead and be adventurous!
3. Italian pizzeria Zero Zero
In the city center there is a nicely decorated space where you can eat authentic Italian pizza – Zero Zero. All ingredients are imported from Italy, particularly flour. Flour must be finely ground type 00 (after which pizzeria Zero Zero got its name).
The kitchen in pizzeria Zero Zero is open so you can closely monitor every movement of pizza masters who will eventually throw a pizza in the bread oven! And the oven is really hot: dry wood creates a temperature between 450 and 500 degrees Celsius, which is ideal that your pizza could come out juicy, with smelling stuffing and dangerously seductive because of the crispy dough. And then nothing is preventing you to “travel” in Italy for the next fifteen minutes.
Enjoy a breath of Naples in the Zagreb city center!
