This might be one of the cosiest locales in Zagreb – on a narrow passage among the cobbled streets behind St Mark’s Church and the Croatian Parliament in the Upper Town. But even as quaint as this is, the food matches it. This is Dalmatian food with a Neretva Valley twist. Frogs’ legs with prosciutto and eels speak of the owner’s heritage and may not be for everyone but other choices such as pasta with snails (75kn), the veal (70kn) and baked lamb for two (170kn) are also well-prepared. The interior is faux Neretva village, with stone walls, red-checked tablecloths and dried tobacco leaves hanging from sturdy wooden beams. A meal for two with a litre of good house wine will run between 200kn and 250kn.
