Strukli at Baltazar - © Vanda Vucicevic/Time Out
This rustic-style restaurant attracts an upmarket clientele to its little Kaptol courtyard with its international offerings, traditional grills, seafood and regional meats from Zagorje and Slavonia. Duck, lamb and turkey are also featured. Service and presentation are impeccable, allowing the bill to creep up to 300kn a head with wine, but carnivores won't begrudge it in the slightest. In summer a pretty terrace comes into its own. In the same courtyard, the Baltazar's twin restaurant Gašpar is one of the best places in Zagreb to enjoy seafood, with fresh Adriatic fish grilled to perfection, and classic dishes like škampi na buzaru (whole unpeeled scampi in wine sauce; 220Kn for a half-kilo portion) prepared and served with real panache.
