We were staying at the Esplanade Hotel and decided to eat in the restaurant on our first night. It was an excellent experience in every respect. We had the four course meal, which I thought might prove too much for me, but each course was tastefully presented and just the right sized portion. There were several mini courses in between...

...considering the traditional opinion we travelers have about Hotel's restaurants. The service was excellent, the local wine list very complete, the sommelier was a good and chatty connoisseur, and the decanting alone was a spectacle that made the wine purchase worth. My wife, my daughter and I asked for different plates, some of them from the flambé menu. Everything was... More

With snowy weather outside we decided to eat in at Zinfandels in the Esplanade. Normally hotel restaurants can be mediocre at best, but Zinfandels is no ordinary hotel restaurant. It is one of the best restaurants in the city. Service was excellent. The food was superb and beautifully served. My wife had the potato and garlic soup plus Strukli, and... More

We breakfasted here twice which was very good but at 23 Euro's each I think was a bit pricey for Croatia, however, it was nice. We only had one dinner in the restaurant and they serve nouvelle cuisine which means many things but to be it means small portions which are disguised to look like something else. I will say...

This place is rated among the best restaurants in Zagreb. We were very much looking forward to trying it. We had the table d'hôte (6 courses) and we paired everything with wine with the sommelier's friendly advise. The evening was delightful although perhaps not as nice as expected.

Best experience ever! The amazing food alone is a reason enough to visit the place again, but it was also the exceptionally skilled and friendly staff, so passionate for what they do, that really made our dinner at Zinfandel’s an experience to remember (and repeat soon!). The chanterelle veloute, beef tartar (prepared immaculately at our table!) and Iberico pork cheeks... More
