Zagreb’s central district has plenty to offer the curious tourist, including a wide variety of culinary treats. Here are three of the best restaurants: traditional, modern, and French.



Top of the Zagreb restaurant reviews – and deservedly so – is an innovative little restaurant near the Dolac market called Trilogija. The market’s location is important, as it determines the fare served at this impressive eatery (the daily menu appears on a board outside). Apart from the guaranteed freshness of the ingredients, the changing menu ensures a new dining experience every time. Ideally situated in the historic quarter by the Kamenita Vrata gate, Trilogija’s snug interior offers guests outstanding dining with a friendly and historic ambiance. Try the black tiger shrimp risotto with mango and spinach, orechiette pasta with spicy sausage, roasted bell peppers and white beans, or simply enjoy the seasonal differences, such as mushrooms in autumn and asparagus in spring.

Apetit City

For spacious modern dining with style and excellent service head for Apetit City, which is more conveniently located than its better-known ‘cousin’ Apetit. The glass roof adds light, ventilation, and space to the very relaxed atmosphere. Great value dining with generous portions embodies the company philosophy of a modern blending of European cuisine with local ingredients. Meat lovers should try the lamb confit served on a bed of forest mushrooms and polenta, while the sea bream on Mediterranean vegetables is an excellent fish option. Additional favourites include papa al pomodoro (Tuscan tomato soup), steak tartare, tuna steak and mashed potato with horseradish, and Wiener schnitzel. If Apetit City appeals, check out the original Bistro Apetit a little farther out at Jurjevska 65.

Bistro Bardot

A relative newcomer on the Zagreb restaurant scene, Bistro Bardot combines local style with French flair to produce a memorable gastronomic experience in the heart of the city. Tucked away in one of the gardens of central Zagreb, guests have a choice of cosy interior or pleasant terrace to sample the delights of the Bardot menu. The French owner is also the chef, and pays great attention to detail and ingredients, and there is a great selection of soups, patés, and salads. The mains are a combination of heady aromas and subtle spices, with the emphasis on meat – veal, chicken, and lamb. A wonderful French culinary experience and a welcome addition to the Zagreb scene.
