Great food in a very charming atmosphere. Although we were outside we took a look inside as a thunderstorm started. Amazing old building structure and great to stay also inside. Food and service are great and I will definitely go there again!!

Pros: good service, decent house red wine, nice quiet setting Cons: basic errors with food - beef soup starter watery with almost no flavour, rump steak ordered medium but served very rare, main served almost cold, all food unremarkable. Disappointing

Unfortunately we haven't booked in advance so we didn't manage to get a table in the main room. Instead, we had a small table next to the bar in the main entrance of the restaurant. Menu is based in traditional cuisine with a twist. We...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.
