Description: Welcome to Tinel! Enjoy the atmosphere of the ancient Zadar town on the peninsula mixed with all the buzz of the near-by piazza, the Zadar’s main square.In the old Dalmatian homes, the room used for socializing and relaxation was referred to as “tinel”. In Italy and in the South of France it is the name used for dining rooms or refectories. So what a better place to experience Mediterranean and Dalmatia, the history of the old-age towns built from stone and gastronomical secretes of their residents, then in the very center of the over three thousand years old town of Zadar.Restaurant TINEL is a restaurant, a bistro, a pizzeria and a spaghetteria. It is a casual and relaxed eatery, with friendly crew and excellent chefs. We offer traditional Mediterranean and Dalmatian cuisine with a touch of creativity and contemporary themes. Whether you look for pasta, pizza, salads, meats or fish, you will find it here. Join us, relax and enjoy… TINEL is the place for the good mood and the great food.

We enjoyed a really good lunch for aprox. 25€ each one.
The waiters are really gentle and the kitchen was fast.

Had great Tuna steak, was so fresh and big portion - definitely value for money ... my wife tried traditional Dalmatian food - Dalmatinska pašticada and was perfect

We had dinner for the second time and had really enjoyed in Tinel - we will come again for sure ...

My food was so fresh it had to have been from the sea today. Unreal. Even the pasta was fresh and not from a package. The best value for the high quality. It was a really hot day and they made every effort to cool the place with multiple air conditioners. The staff was lovely! The food was so amazing you words don't do it justice. It is worth the wait! Don't miss this place. It is NOT a tourist trap but a place run by a local that greats his customers and provides an amazing experience. I joined trip advisor to make sure to leave a review for the first time ever because it is worth it

We tried to get a table here last night, there were seats inside but they were using the tables to lay their food on and they told us it was fully booked and not in a nice way either. I read so many good reviews that I thought, we have to try again. So, we ate breakfast here in the morning and with the view to reserve a table for dinner. There were no choices for breakfast, a set menu only, eggs(scrambled/boiled) coffee (no tea) or juice, and ham, cheese and salami plate. I would have liked to be informed of this by a way of a menu board, or a sign somewhere saying this outside the restaurant before I sat down. Scrambled eggs had shells in it and our server was not the friendliest. Maybe dinner would have been better but based on attitude, didn't reserve a spot for dinner.

A special place for us, as my husband proposed here. The vongole pasta, steak and rocket salad, roasted veg, whole grilled fish and some of the best wine, are the other reason we keep going back. Delicious. Love it
