If you have one night for dinner, this is a great spot for regional cuisine. We visited early by European standards and were the only people in the restaurant for part of our meal. But by the time we left, it was pretty full. The...More

We went there for a family lunch. Food was excellent, waiter was helpful and professional, but we had to wait long time for our food, despite the fact that we were only guests at the restaurant.

I liked the ambient, but food was very average and made with a lot of oil. Average place to dine I would say.

Bad experience started at the entrance. Although we were almost alone at the restaurant, we were instructed that we can only sit at a specific table. There were no reservation signs, and the table we wanted was still empty at the moment of leaving. Also...More

The restaurant Lanterna na Dolcu (Lanterna at the Dolac Market) was opened on 10 September 2010 in the magical atmosphere of an old manor. Brothers Tomislav and Ivan shared the same vision from the beginning - to offer traditional Zagreb food at reasonable prices at a restaurant with a pleasant family vibe. It wasn't long before word about the Lanterna restaurant at the Dolac Market spread all the way to London. Every morning, we get ingredients from Dolac ladies called kumice who sell their produce at the market and we guarantee that each food item used in our kitchen is fresh.

The restaurant is located in one of the oldest streets in the city's old centre, in an over 300 years old basement. The restaurant's vaulted ceiling with brickwork that nicely stands out creates a unique and warm atmosphere. It is here that supreme pleasures of traditional Zagreb cuisine blend with scents of history and city legends.

Our goal was to combine modern and traditional in both the interior design and on the plate so we browsed through an old cookbook from 1854 that we found in the Zagreb City Museum, looking for ideas. We did not want to exclude authentic Croatian tastes from our dishes, but we also added some unique ingredients to all our traditional menu items.
