Restaurants, Italian Tkalciceva
5 out of 5 stars
© Barbieri's

The newest kid on the block in Zagreb’s ever-expanding bistro scene, this attractively chic restaurant is run by Andrej Barbieri, the famous Croatian chef and Masterchef judge. A modern interpretation of a French brasserie, the dishes are small but remarkably well-crafted, and the food plays to local strengths – there’s plenty of Adriatic fish-dishes, locally sourced meat and an excellent cheese and tapas selection. Inside, it’s an uber-cool suede and dark leather affair, with a backlit bar serving princely cocktails. Unsurprisingly, it doesn't come cheap - mains are priced 100-200kn, but food this satisfying is worth the splash-out. Boasting an opportune spot on Tkalčićeva (previously home to Takenoko) the location is hard to beat.
