We were looking for a nice family place to eat, walked into Pivnica by complete accident (we were supposed to go next door!!) well what a wonderful surprise. It's a plain, normal, local eatery, some discribe it as a beer hall? The staff were warm, pleasant and helpful. The food was A M A Z I N G!!!! Excellent value for money. Go hungry :)
Favorite Dish: Mixed grill - Platter of meat selection for 2 only 125kn. Huge platter, Tasty, typical local food. Potatoes and veggies very, very good. Meat was excellent & finger-licking good. Value for money!!
if u want to try some typical dishes from this area, this is the place. it is situated in the center, the ambient is nice and so are the prices. beer hall is cheaper than the restaurant. during summer they also have outdoor terrace, but inside is also very nice, old fashioned.
Favorite Dish: any stew with gnocchi.
Okay, sorry, but don't remember the name of this place that Zdenka and Boris took us to. What I DO remember is that it was excellent and that the company was perfect. I cannot say thank you often enough to our friends for taking the time to treat us to "their" Zagreb...^L^
Found out the name, it is the Pivnica Medvedgrad, thanks Boris.
The first meeting with Boris (croisbeauty) and (Niksa) took place at this cozy bar on Zagreb's famous cafe-lined street, Tkalciceva. We ordered some beer and some really excellent calamari and fries and just got to know each other for awhile. It was great to be welcomed to the city by two locals who really know their city well and are proud and excited to show it off (well, technically Niksa is from Split, but he certainly is very knowledgeable about Zagreb).
Okay, this is the plate that Boris choose for the two of us, yep, just Boris and I. And believe me we ate the whole thing. It was great, a platter of mixed meats typical of Croatia. Although I admit that it took us a while to finish it all.....Maybe Boris or Zdenka could tell me what the different dishes are.
This was the first time that we had ever seen a menu of this type. It was all completly electronic, the waiter would run a bar code reader over the menu and then the result would be sent to the kitchen along with the number of our table. The menu that we saw was a normal menu and you would order by number or name then the waiter would "convert" it into his electronic signal..
