Its culinary scene having improved no end over the last five years, Zagreb can provide dining options from high-end of international standard to the most modest but wholesome domestic.

You can taste specialities from just about any region of Croatia from Dalmatia to Zagorje – and in any price range. One steadfast local favourite is štrukli, dough parcels filled with cottage cheese sometimes covered in breadcrumbs. Full-blown traditional restaurants lean towards pork, veal and other grilled and breaded delights; trendier, cosmopolitan fusion venues are rapidly finding a foothold from Kaptol down to and around the Lower Town.

Not everything leans towards the traditional: try Nishta, which opened in Zagreb in 2014 after its immense success in Dubrovnik, for quality vegetarian food, or Royal India, one of many Asian restaurants to open in recent years.

Meal breaks can be busy in newly business-like Zagreb – especially at neighbourhood spots offering cheap lunchtime specials, known here as gableci. If you’re just here for one night only, treat yourself at Zinfandel’s, Apetit or Okrugljak.
