This restaurant has an extensive menu with just about everything Croatian and Italian. The wine was a good buy.

This restaurant was recommended to us by our hotel, and we were not disappointed. Every member of our party was able to find something they were able to enjoy, and that simply never happens. The food was delicious, and we enjoyed it so much we visited Purger again the following day. It's traditional Croatian food with a slight twist by... More

If you like straightforward local food served by attentive staff not trying to 'up-sell' or have 'a shared dining experience' this is a restaurant for you. Do not be discouraged by the slightly dour and dated interior appearance - this establishment offers a dining experience that seems to be sadly dying out. Good food (although probably not low calorie!) reasonably... More

If you're hungry and you want to eat classic Croatian food - go to Purger. Interior is bit outdated, but wine goulash makes up for it :-) Food is great, service as well.

We had lunch at Purger in Zagreb which was an interesting but enjoyable experience. The restsurant has a very old fashioned feel about it and a traditional Croation menu. Our waiter was extremely attentive but his English was somewhat basic which made it difficult to ask questions regarding the menu. Eventually he recommended two dishes which were a goulash and...

I was here in April the last time and wanted to introduce my wife to their good food so we went there for dinner our first evening in Zagreb. I am so impressed with the service in this restaurant. Firstly all the waiters speak English and they are so helpful. I explained to the waitress some of the grilled items... More

My wife who is Australian insists that we eat here when visiting my family in Zagreb. The punjena paprika (stuffed capsicums) is her favourite and as I am vegetarian, I asked for a mushroom risotto even though it wasn't on the menu. Delicious! The waiter was happy to oblige and this explains their service. Always pleasant and professional.

Nice small place with a charming terrace. Food was very good, especially the mushroom soop. The staff was quick and kind.
