The location is really central and very close to sea and the nice heart of Zadar. Service and rooms are great, though for group works it would be great to have a bit more private space. Anyhow one of the most inspiring conference places you can have.

Attended a wedding reception at the Arsenal. Service, food and ambience were exceptional! The mix of the ancient and modern ties in well. Definetelly would come back to try different venue, maybe a concert or a quiet dinner.

It is a bit far from downtown. However, the food is very good. There's a good selection of wines. As usual in Croatia, the grilled fish (bass) is very good.

Of our conference held here. Good use of a heritage building but really would have liked to see some interpretation.

We chose Arsenal due to it being open late (we came at about 23:00), and that it was close to the parking/the ferries. Our seating was outside and with hardly any lighting, and the table candles kept getting blown out by the wind. The food was however decent. after reading other reviews I understand that we might have come at... More

Outside it looks like an old timers club however take the plunge and head... More
