The Mesnička street a street where the city fortresses, city houses and mansions used to be. A place where the toll-house and city entrance used to stand along with the so-called Mesnička gate with the chappel of St. Ivan Nepomuk. The street where the greatest novelist and narrator of Zagreb - August Šenoa lived and died. The place where the most renown writer of north Croatia on the end of 18th century - Tituš Brezovački found his peace. It always had refection for tired travellers and guests. Some twenty years ago, there was “Tri Lovca” that was very familiar to older residents of Zagreb and younger habitants remember it as first cellar “Stari Fijaker” that was renewed on the 25th of August, 1994 for the 900th anyversary of city of Zagreb.

The Stari Fijaker offers a full menu of authentic traditional culinary delicacies representing the Zagreb-Zagorje region of Croatia. We highly recommend that you try our punjeka paprika (stuffed peppers), sarma (cabbage rolls), purica s mlincima (a traditional Croatian Christmas meal – roast turkey with a delicious pasta-like side dish, made of cooked unleavened dough seasoned with turkey drippings), and of course štrukli (cooked cheese-filled pastry, unlike anything you’ve had before, but this is the quintessential Croatian comfort food that you will want to have again and again).
