My husband took me to my favourite restaurant in Zagreb called "Pod Gričkim Topom（website）" for my birthday. The restaurant is located at the Upper Town just next to the entrance/exit of "the world shortest funicular". My birthday was April and I wore a coat, but in a few days later, I spent all the day in a T-shirt. The weather in Zagreb in the spring is unpredictable - it could be very hot and dry, but it could be a bit cold and windy in the next day.
The wood tables and antique furniture of the restaurant matches very well with the nature and make very cozy space. The restaurant is situated in the centre of Zagreb, but inside the restaurant is very quiet. I had a great time there with tasty lunch while enjoying green nature and birds singing :)
The prices of their menu is higher than normal restaurants where local people go, but not overpriced I think. So, I realise that most of the guests at the restaurants are non-Croatian people. If you go to this restaurant for lunch, usually you can find a table without reservation, but for dinner, especially on special occasions such as Christmas and Valentine's Day, definitely better to book a table.
This photo was actually taken more than one year ago, so I look a bit different (mostly because I gained some weight...). The table at the terrace was great especially on a sunny spring day :) I ordered truffle pasta (about 78Kn). The volume of the food was just right for me (and for most Japanese). I often find truffle pasta with cream sauce at other restaurants, but this restaurant served the truffle pasta with olive oil sauce, which was not too heavy and indeed very tasty.
The restaurant is located in the great place looking down the city of Zagreb while enjoying the peaceful time in the nature, has a great service and served wonderful plates. But, you can't leave without having their desert! Every time I visit there, they prepare new desert. So, it is one of amusements of the restaurant, too.
For my birthday, I had a cake of strawberries and Mascarpone cream in a cup of pie. Yummy yummy :P
Enjoy both the view of the charming city of Zagreb and great food at this restaurant when you come to Zagreb :)
