My food was so fresh it had to have been from the sea today. Unreal. Even the pasta was fresh and not from a package. The best value for the high quality. It was a really hot day and they made every effort to cool...More

We tried to get a table here last night, there were seats inside but they were using the tables to lay their food on and they told us it was fully booked and not in a nice way either. I read so many good reviews...More

A special place for us, as my husband proposed here. The vongole pasta, steak and rocket salad, roasted veg, whole grilled fish and some of the best wine, are the other reason we keep going back. Delicious. Love it

situated in a smaller street next to the mainstreet, the restaurant offers a nice quiter terrace. We had very good black risotto and perfect pasta with clams as starters. Mains were excellent John Dory with truffle sauce and good thin crust pizza.

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.
