Very pleasant servis. Cozy interior, very clean with attention for details. The food was excellent. Local cousin but presented on modern way. Something different. Homemade pasta, bread. Great appetizer and wine. Delicious cakes. Good value for money.

Excellent food, great service and beautiful view. Atmosphere is great... but the dessert was just the icing on the cake: chestnut cake with almonds and chocolate. Hands down to this cake. Good portion sizes and fair prices. Highly recommended. <3

Feel the pulse!!! Bon Appetit is open, new must-try restaurant in Zadar. Restaurant menu is inspired by the Dalmatian and Mediterranean tradition in a modern way. In addition to fresh fish and meat from local farming we offer several cosmopolitan novelties such as pork ribs with potatoes, black angus burger, wine by the glass and refreshing cocktails. A perfect place for daily and evening relax
