Independent Restaurant Review
Restaurant Name: Gostionica Restoran Purger
Address: Petrinjska ul. 33, 10000, Zagreb, Croatia
Looking for a place to eat serving traditional Croatian food, we quite by accident found Gostionica Purger. We were hot and hungry, had our dog along and were wandering the streets of Zagreb when we spotted a simple restaurant accompanied by an inviting little patio with comfy looking chairs.
A dog bowl filled with water magically appeared immediately on our arrival, along with welcomes and smiles. We sat on the empty outside terrace (probably empty because of the heat); inside was full! The waiters were traditionally dressed in white shirts, black vest and black slacks which I thought was a very nice touch.
We ordered the following:
– ICE coffee
– Beer house draft – Ozujsko Pivo
– Hashed Meat Dumplings / Ćevapčići na žaru 58 kuna / €7.83
– Mixed Grill / Miješano meso na žaru 105 kuna / €14.20
As soon as we ordered food, two tables were set up with white table cloths, cloth napkins and flatware!
OMG! Amazingly delicious. Hand cut fries, fried to perfection; meat barbecued with real full BBQ flavor. The Mixed Grill was a variety of BBQ meats with Cevapcici, pork chop, lamb, beef and pork loin.
When my coffee was empty, a big glass of ice water appeared, without asking for it!
The staff was excellent; observant, friendly, professional.
Our bill came to a total of 204.00 kuna / €27.54. Expensive, but not for what you got.
Would I eat here again? Yes!!! When can we go?
Dog Friendly? Yes
Negative: Shows they have internet, but it did not work. Internet is so important when traveling…
Open: Monday to Saturday: 7:00 am to 11:00 pm
Where NOT to stay overnight when in Zagreb.
