Lanterna is located in the upper town and is easy to find. The waiters are professional and helpful but we often had to wait to serve us. Ok, I don't expect that someone will stand over me but...

The place looks lovely inside downstairs with brick arches. The service was very good and i really enjoyed my food. There seemed to be a good variety of local wines.

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 we had to go to the bar to ask for the check, and wait there... More

A very nice wine cellar ambiance, close to Old Town, it is a nice place for tourists. Better places to eat in the City but they have some nice dishes at decent prices with nice service. Do not let the lack of crowds fool you, they have a Decent menu with a moderate wine list and a few traditional deserts.... More

We were very happy about our choice. It's a 300 hundred year old building with a pleasant interior and great atmosphere. The waiter was so welcoming, did great suggestions on food and wine to each of us. The food is really good and well thought thru.

Thank Sanda Š

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.
