The smallest of four Pivnica Medvedgrad pubs in Zagrebís main pub/caffe bar street. Recently they opened and upper floor, so thereís more space now. Large bar, on weekends (mostly Saturday) live music and schnaps party. Usual Medvedgrad beer and food selection. All in all ok place.

Nice place in the middle of the pedestrian street near to the main square. You cant all the beers of brewery and seasonals. Food is not so great. Good service, a little bit slow.

This venue started as a small venue in one of the cityís busiest streets when it comes to bars. Some time ago theyíve started expanding and now they are one of the biggest bars in the street. Patio is large but looks generic and not pleasant at all.
Service is not that bad when it comes to speed but they donít seem to know a thing about stuff they are serving. Also on one occasion I got different side dish with explanation side Iíve ordered was gone (both were potato side orders so one has to ask himself what is going on in that kitchen). They didnít even bother to ask me if itís OK with me. Anyway the food was quite bad and as far as Iím concerned Iím done with eating there.
They serve standard set of Medvedgrad beers. Which would be more than good for Zagreb if they were in good condition. Unfortunately last time 3 out of 4 beers were not good, and Dva Klasa had a heavy rotten egg smell.
Value is good as in other Medvedgrad pubs especially considering the location.
Itís a shame that a pub at such great location and with lot of potential lacks effort, imagination and sets the quality bar so low. They could do much better and hope theyíll improve over the time.

It is nice pub in beautiful street near city center. They offer all Medvedgrad beers, with seasonals. Staff is nice and prices are reasonable. I havenít tried food, but if it is same like other Medvedgrad restaurants then it has to be good.

Located on the main pedestrian street just up from the main square. The street is lined with bars. We got the last table available outside and watched folk walk up and down. Service was quite slow. They just had Medvedgrad core range of beers available.

Quite a busy place. Think they should consider improving the seating, chairs are wobbley and the booths are really too small. Tourist place, so no real interest in a beer lover, just want to sell plenty of bees.

Small version of the restaurant on Ilica. It is two levels with a small patio out front for smokers. It is located in the pedestrian district in Zagreb. The food is good and the service is pretty good for Croatia. Nice place to visit if you are in the area.

New comments: OK, though called "Little Bear", and once the smallest of Medvedgrad pubs, now itís taken over a big chunk of Tkalčićeva street, with around 500 patio seats, added a pizza place with allegedly very good pizzas (I have yet to try), a new, even better chef and, most recently an exhibition/sales area I think. While the expansions (patios, offer, range) are cool, the ambiance hasnít improved, and the service, though busy, can be lousy nowadays (at least one good waitress who bothered to learn something about that which she served I know doesnít work there anymore - and last time I was there as an ordinary guest, a friend of mine got a glass of Dva Klasa which was spoiled/undrinkable, and when he rightly complained, the waiter cockily dismissed his complaints saying that itís supposed to smell like that (sulphur) as itís a "strong beer"...). So, a couple of pluses here and a couple of minuses there and the rating goes up... but not that much up. Itís still a good place to visit on Tkalča - for their seasonals and their food!
I think this was the second outlet to open after the "reorganization". Being that itís on the busiest and most popular "bar street" in the town, itís the one I visited the most. Initially quite cramped, after the pation (not directly across from the pub but unmissable) and the second floor opened, it became much more bearable. The staffís quite ok for Medvedgrad, the food good (and happy hour discounts on some stuff are very nice). Same 6 beers as elsewhere. Another Medvedgrad option, more than satisfactory if youíre in the area. Can be overcrowded though.
