About Zinfandel's Restaurant
Zinfandel’s Restaurant is an impressive and elegant location, fully renovated in 2004, along with the Esplanade Hotel, where the restaurant is situated. The restaurant carries the name of the grape zinfandel that was exported at the beginning of the 19th century from Dalmatia to the USA.
If it’s 1920’s decadence that appeals to you, look no further than the Oleander Terrace; the very essence of indulgent high society lunching and an enduringly-popular meeting place.
Famous writer Miroslav Krleža once said that the ‘Oleander terrace is the border between Balkans and Europe’ – this sentence best describes the perception of this prestigious place.
