31. May 2014: Restoran Agava

| June 19, 2014 | 0 Comments

The “aubergine tart with pesto, young cheese and tomato coulis” (45 KRN, approx. CHF 6.25) was a very refreshing and light start into the evening. The cheese is creamy and soft providing the perfect combination with the aubergines.


The “Traditional Croatian pasta ‘Fuzi’ with black truffles” (60 KRN, approx. CHF 9.65) was a last minute decision after the first course as somehow I figured that I would not have enough with the rather tiny portion of aubergine tart. The waiter was incredibly flexible and made it possible so I would get the pasta as a middle course. The pasta was nicely al dente and the truffle was still pretty subtle in taste but very aromatic.


As a main course I had the “Pag Island Sheep cheese risotto” (75 KRN, approx. CHF 12.05) which was incredibly smooth and creamy but on the other hand had a very nice taste of cheese enriched by the slight sweetness of the apple pieces. Absolutely lovely dish. When it comes to the wines however, it needed some time until the wine of my gusto was found. While I had asked for an already rather strong one, the first one served was rather smooth – only when requesting a more intense wine I got it.


The “Focaccia with rosemary and olive oil” (10 KRN, approx. CHF 1.60) was a nice sidedish which allowed you to bridge the waiting time. What was obvious is the fact that the Restaurant Agava is located in the Tkalciceva Street which is the main tourist street with hundreds of bars and restaurants and, therefore, also not so much of a secret spot which results in a lot of Americans which made me think at first that the place is not too good but I must say that I was happy to realize that I assumed wrongly so.


The place is pretty nice and if you consider booking a table in advance you might even be lucky to get one by the window so you get to people watch. If not, it is also pretty nice with large tables inside on the top floor. The service is friendly, jovial, helpful, flexible and pretty quick. In addition to that, the prices are fair – which applies for the food as well as for the beverages (e.g. Moscato Ice, 20 KRN, approx. CHF 3.20; water, 0,75L, 24 KRN, approx. CHF 3.85).

Overall, the Restaurant Agava is definitely a nice place in the Tkalciceva Street providing good food for fair prices in a nice atmosphere (and if you’re lucky even a nice view) with good service and tasty dishes.

I was in touch with food since my early childhood (as my father is a former chef). Whenever I can, I travel the world to discover new places, to meet people but mostly to try local dishes and to find hidden gems!
