The latest venture from Dino Galvagno (the power behind highly-praised eatery Prasac), 5/4 or ‘The Fifth Quarter’ opened in 2013 and established itself almost immediately as Zagreb’s latest must-eat culinary sensation. It’s certainly a unique place to dine: with twigs and leaves stuck to the wall, the interior looks like a cross between a contemporary art installation and a forest hut. The menu changes daily and basically represents what the chef found at the market and what he feels like cooking; expect an individually crafted selection of European-Mediterranean dishes, with Adriatic fish and at least one mainstream meat dish always featured. The smaller dishes and starters are delights in themselves, and it pays to order several if you want to experience the breadth of 5/4’s cuisine: the 5-, 7- or 12-course tasting menus (for 290Kn, 410Kn and 570Kn respectively) come highly recommended.
