Visited with Iznogud. The first brewpub in Croatia. Traditional interior dominated by dark wood, a cavernous place. Very nice leafy beergarden in back with scattered picnic tables. Smoking is allowed but we found a relatively smoke-free corner. Decent range of their beers on including some seasonals and off menu items. Beers were tasty enough. Worth a stop.
A traditional brewpub and restaurant in the city center, visited by locals and tourists likewise. Good for bigger groups, celebrations and so on. Working since 1994, they used to be a typical "Helles-mixed-Dunkel" selection, but turned to one of the first craft breweries in Croatia and opened more pubs in the center of the town. Today they have a variety of their own beers, including some really nice seasonals. Food is good and prices are reasonable. People usually complain about the unfriendly staff.
If you visit Zagreb, make sure you don’t mis this place. The beer is great, just as the food. Especially he fried chicken fingers. There is a wide selection of delicious beers. The service is great. Service with a laugh. Best place in Eastern Europe.
So I am sitting here right now, on a hot summer’s day, wondering how cruel I must be to have dragged my daughter to this god forsaken place. Yes, it is spacious and not without charm, especially in the large garden, but the beer is quite unimpressive, to put it mildly. It may be the case that it was poured three hours ago and left unattended as it is tepid and with no carbonation at all. I am not even sure if the beers match their names - they certainly do not match their otherwise reasonably favourable reviews on RB. Cheap, yes, but unfortunately in more than one sense of the word. I’m not going to order anything to eat, for fear of experiencing another disappointment. I will not be back - there are other, decent places to go to in the centre of Zagreb.
