Time Out says
Could there be a more atmospheric place to dine in Karlovac? Set in the medieval castle of Dubovac, home to the famed Napoleonic Irish military commander Laval Nugent von Westmeath, the Bistro Kastel offers a menu that aptly reflects local gastronomic heritage and makes best use of produce sourced from in and around Karlovac. Hearty meats and soups come with delicious home-made bread – the steak and ribs are both outstanding, so do leave room. Bistro Kastel is not so formal that you can’t ask for a hamburger, or a plate of chicken nuggets for any younger diners. Good wine list, too, and selection of craft beers.
