Zinfandels - © Fumie Suzuki/Time Out
Zinfandel's essentially transfers the elegance of this Art Deco hotel, built for the Orient Express back in 1925, to the dining room. Beneath the chandeliers, a pianist strokes the keys for a room overlooking the Oleander terrace and beyond to the train station. Dishes include duck, a daily selection of fresh fish, pan-roasted veal with foie gras or wild boar with a chestnut, truffle and pumpkin mousseline - the menu changes often to reflect the season. Sunday brunch buffet from noon runs the gamut - the best Croatian cheeses and sausage. Don't overlook in-house Le Bistro either, French in style and approach but with stand-out local štrukli.
