Location & History
Pod Zidom Bistro is located in the very heart of Zagreb in a peaceful and charming street Pod Zidom, a few steps away from Zagreb’s main square Trg bana Josipa Jelačića. It’s also within walking distance of Zagreb’s Cathedral and the oldest marketplace in the city – Dolac.
The location is both historic and modern, in the heart of the city, but not affected by the typical city rush. Pod Zidom Bistro will introduce you to all aspects of everyday life in Zagreb.
“Pod Zidom” is the name of an old historical street stretching along the left bank of Medvešćak stream. The street was built underneath the Kaptol wall and later named after it. In 1920 Kaptol was torn down and the market Dolac was built. Despite that, the street kept its unique name.
In Pod Zidom Bistro you can feel the relaxing charm of the historic location, Dolac market rush, and the modern city vibe.
Our terrace is quite unique, overlooking the famous Zagreb Cathedral.
The menu depends on the available seasonal ingredients. We buy fresh ingredients daily at the nearby Dolac market and therefore support local production. The focus is on food from organic farming, supplied by small producers based near Zagreb.
Combining local ingredients and traditional flavors in the creative and unique presentation by our Chef, we reinterpret the local heritage and tradition that inspire us to create the menu.
Wines are our great passion. Pod Zidom wine list showcases the diversity of terroirs, local varieties, and the philosophy of winemakers in Croatia and the region with focus on organic wines.
The selection of wine on our wine list is the product of tireless researching, discovering boutique wineries, and tasting new vintages. We always have some special and rare wines in our wine archive.
In exclusive cooperation with the renowned Croatian winemakers, we selected local varieties and created a special selection of Pod Zidom organic wines.
Pod Zidom team consists of experienced and dedicated individuals. Our common goal is, above all, to educate and spread the love for high-quality food and wine.
We try to connect with our guests to make their experience memorable.
