Okrugljak is a restaurant that captures most of Zagreb’s character and is probably the restaurant with most traditional cuisine in Northern Croatia. Its place on the gastro scene is a very important place because of the excellent menu, high standards, as well as cultural and sociological aspects related to this restaurant with almost centennial tradition. It boasts a series of awards (multiple winner of Vecernjak's Golden Star, Il Cuoco d'oro Internacionale 1980 – '81) and an interesting list of guests.
Okrugljak has a domestic atmosphere, always with a plenty of returning customers. Here you can meet celebrities and business people who frequent this gourmet oasis, often accompanied by their business partners. Regardless of the fact that the restaurant has a rather large capacity, you should make a reservation, especially over the weekend, when many families have a traditional lunch at Okrugljak.
Okrugljak boasts a vast selection of traditional dishes, occasionally improved by European and seasonal gastronomy trends. Apart from the spit and grill favorites, you can also try foal meat, game, duck, home-made, blood and frying sausages. Beefsteak is excellent, and lamb is outstanding.
However, we would particularly recommend veal knuckle prepared under the baking lid that goes excellently with grated potatoes with cream. We don't have to point out that the portions are huge, but so are the prices.
Our recent lunch in Okrugljak started with a clear beef soup, followed by excellent Slavonian kulen salami and ham. We couldn’t resist the beauty of the veal knuckle and it did not disappoint. For dessert, we had apple and cherry strudel. They were agreeable, but with room for improvement. Little things delight you in Okrugljak, so our friends and business partners were absolutely delighted with couvert – cottage cheese with ham, served with warm home made bread.
The wine list contains around a hundred domestic and foreign labels, some of them vintage. The wine list is regularly updated with new wines.
