A must go place ! - Edit

Raw vegan restaurant with breakfast, meals, deserts and drinks. The place is really nice, spacious, with places to chill out with a view over zadar as its marina! We loved out lunch, we had the spring rolls and empanadas and the taste was amazing! Prices are average for zadar. However they dont open when the weather is the whole thing is out in the open!

Wonderful place - Edit

The location is beautiful and relaxing. The waiters were attentive and friendly. The food was really delicious and served fast but it's definitely more on the expensive side. I really recommend to check this place out!

Einfach fantastisch! 10 Sterne von uns!!! - Edit

Das Lokal ist ein absolutes "must go"! Jedes der rohveganen Gerichte ist ein Traum! Wir hatten das Porridge, die Sushi, die Springrolls, die Pizza und 2 verschiedene Smoothies. Es war einfach ein Traum. Sehr sehr geschmackvoll und lecker, so sehr dass ich endlich den Mut gefasst habe auch zu Hause auf rohvegan umzustellen. Eigentlich wollten wir noch Kuchen probieren, aber wider Erwarten waren die Portionen nicht klein, zumal Rohkost auch eher sättigt.
Das tolle Ambiente und der Blick auf den Hafen rundet das perfekte Erlebnis dort an! Auf keinen Fall vergessen möchte ich zu erwähnen, dass die Bedienung schnell und super freundlich war. Ich bin mir sicher, dass es sogar Fleischesser die offen für Neues sind mit Leichtigkeit überzeugt! Die Preise sind angemessen, denn Rohkostgerichte sind einfach viel aufwendiger und die Lebensmittel entsprechend teurer, aber das sollte uns unsere Gesundheit wert sein.Wer nicht hingeht hat echt was verpasst!Leider kann man nur 5 Sterne vergeben, von mir gibts 10⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

Pros: traumhaft lecker, tolles Ambiente , schöner Blick auf den Hafen

Cons: keine

Explosion of flavors in my mouth, we didn't want to leave! - Edit

I absolutely loved the food and smoothies at this place. I didn't expect anything like this in Zadar.
I had the raw vegan pizza and the summer rolls and my friend had the granola yoghurt. We were both thrilled. The smoothies were the best we had ever had.
On top of this, the place is a lounge with a view of the harbor and lounge music. It was very relaxing.
I would love to come back here one day.

Pros: Amazing food , good portions , freshly prepared

Too "experimental" for me - Edit

The place is really really nice ans staff is cool, but the food was a little too spicy and too "alternative" for my taste, I prefer more traditional food. I recommend spaghetti courgette, I didn't like empanadas.

Сыроедные кафе, в которые не нужно ходить/Raw Restorans You Should Not Visit - Edit

Вы когда-нибудь оказывались в совке за границей? Нам вот сказочно повезло вчера в #zadar, портовый #город такой в Хорватии. Приехали по делам, нашли сыроедный ресторан Garden с претенциозным меню Art of Raw. На столах пепельницы, вокруг на нестиранных годами матрасах валяются с ногами люди с пивом и алкоголем, курят, громкая одебиливающая #музыка с жуткими ударными, бъющими по голове, официанты медленные, не могут ответить на элементарные вопросы. Чтобы сесть за чистый #стол, нужно было просить его вытереть. Когда я попросила отскоблить со стола птичью какашку (кафе на улице по открытым небом), официантка перепиралась со мной, пытаясь доказать, что это кто-то затушил бычок и его отмыть нельзя. Я взяла нож и отскоблила г...но на ее глазах. Она так удивилась). Меню скудное. Еда жуткая - все пересолено, кислющее, невкусное. С подачей постарались, да, этого не отнимешь. Десерты понравились, долго не могли поверить, что их делают в этом же кафе. Это не вязалось со свинарником и жутким обслуживанием. Когда покупали #десерты, подошла к витрине, чтобы их выбрать. Меня попросили выйти, так как....ВНИМАНИЕ!.... на еду смотреть нельзя до того, как купишь. Я уже рыдала от смеха, поэтому вызвала менеджера и попросила принести десерты мне, чтобы я могла выбрать. После жуткой ломки стереотипов, на которую я им дала 15 секунд, десерты принесли. Короче - мы рыдали и ели, ели и рыдали. Ушли голодные.

Осторожнее с выбором кафе будьте, друзья!

Pros: good desserts

Cons: dirty restaurant tables, too salty food, bad service

amazing meal at Art of Raw - Edit

Excellent meal! Very kind, patient and helpful service at the Art of Raw. I recommend ordering the chopped salad - it sounds simple, but is huge (with really yummy dressing). I also had the ice noodles, which were very unusual, but tasty. I'd go back in a heart beat.

Pros: Service, Food, Atmosphere

Hit And Miss - Edit

We went to the Art Of Raw twice and we have concluded it to be a bit and miss experience.

First night we had the spring rolls and the tempeh. The spring rolls were very good and came with a nice soy sauce dip. The Tempeh however was not so good, it left a fishy aftertaste that wasn't appealing.

Also we asked for stuffed champignons, raw pizza, empanadas and onion chips on the first night and none of these were available that night.

The second night we came we ordered three things as the portion sizes aren't really big enough to satisfy if you just have one each. This night we got the empanadas, raw pizza and again the tempeh.

The stuffed champignons again weren't available.

The empanadas, like the spring rolls were a hit and we're full of flavour. The raw pizza was ok but came with a very difficult to cut base with the knives we were given however it was very tasty.

Sadly, again the tempeh left a fishy aftertaste that we thought may have been just from that one night we were there.

In terms of drinks we had a red carpet mocktail and a banana based smoothie which I can't remember the name of which were excellent. On the second night however I ordered a juice which I also can't remember the name of but it had ginger in it and I couldn't taste anything but the ginger.

Overall the location is fantastic with great views of the harbour opening and all the boats coming in and out. The service was also very fast and friendly.

Pros: Entirely vegan menu, Tasty, raw vegan food, Fast and friendly service

Cons: Small portions, Hit and miss dishes, Some items on the menu weren't available

Vegan Heaven - Edit

Please don't mistake this restaurant for a garden bar popular with tourists for your common sunset cocktail. This place is the real deal. I've eaten raw food around the world and this is without a doubt the best set of raw dishes I have dined on, ever. The taste and layers to the dishes are high end restaurant quality and I was blown away. We are over looking the Harbor and orders the spring roles (rice paper roles), Raw Pizza and the 2 varieties of vegan pate'. The food was incredible, my partner who is vegetarian had never eaten good quality and well thought out raw food and is now a complete convert. The food was cheap and the location was brilliant. Drinks also are in the same category, beer is all brewed in house and the cocktails are fresh fruit based and cheap in comparison to other Croatia destinations.

A must visit for a vegan/vegetarian in Zadar. Take my word for it.

Pros: stunning location , cheap, top quality food

Cons: none at all.

Eine echte Perle! - Edit

Dieses rohköstliche Restaurant ist idyllisch am Berg mit Blick auf die Hafenpromenade gelegen. Viele (v.a. einheimische) Gäste kommen nur wegen der Bar hierher, anscheinend der Hauptaktivität dieses Ladens. Wir bestellten Spring Rolls, Pizza und Norimaki. Alles war extrem lecker, sogar unserem 6 Jährigen schmeckte es! Zum Nachtisch gab es Karottentorte mit Kokossahne. Göttlich! Wir kommen gerne wieder.

An unexpected treasure - Edit

Spoilt to have such a great totally vegan menu in a really pleasant environment. Between 3 of us we had the spring rolls (delicious), the sushi (very tasty), the zucchini 'pasta' (bit too salty for our taste, but otherwise good), the tempeh (nice, but already getting stuffed), the pizza (a bit heavy on the rocket/ruccola) and managed to squeeze in the chocolate mouse (gotta love a non-vegan spelling mistake 😁) which was very nice. Would definitely return.

Pros: A feast for the eyes, Really chilled atmosphere, Friendly wait staff

Cons: Some dishes a bit salty (even for my salt loving w

tolle Location - Edit

Nicht ganz einfach zu finden- keine Beschilderung aber dank anderer Happy cow Bewertungen haben wir es dennoch recht schnell gefunden. Wir hatten einen grünen Smoothie, einen latte Macchiato und ein Raw tiramisu. Das tiramisu war echt göttlich! Die Location ist sehr schön und es war richtig gemütlich. Ich würde sofort wieder hin gehen!

Pros: eine Vielzahl an besonderen Getränken und Kuchen , herzhafte Gerichte sind auch vorhanden

Cons: Nicht alle Kellner sprechen englisch , Nicht ganz so günstig

absolut empfehlenswert! - Edit

Ein ganz tolles Restaurant auf den wir durch happy cow aufmerksam geworden sind, sonst hätte man es leider sicherlich übersehen, da etwas abseits.
Das Essen und die Atmosphäre sind der Hammer. Meine zwei nicht veganen Freundinnen waren ebenfalls begeistert. Wir haben 4 Sachen bestellt und jeder hat von allem gegessen und es war alles super lecker. Incl dem Nachtisch.
Preise und Service sind ebenfalls top.
Geht auf jeden Fall hin wenn ihr in Zadar seid.

Amazing food and beautiful location - Edit

Although this restaurant is hard to find it is completely worth the search. I wish it was open all year round but is in operation only during the high season.
The food was absolutely fantastic. The best I've had in Croatia and the location is right on the water right outside the walls of Old Town Zadar.
If you are in the city during high season absolutely visit here. I can't emphasize enough how fantastic it was to visit.

Pros: Amazing food, Fantastic location, Raw and vegan food

Cons: Only open June to September , Not open when it rains

true vegan, true raw - Edit

An amazing setting in a lounge hip environment overlooking the river. The cuisine is truly Vegan and 100% raw. The dishes were novel and plentiful, and the price was very reasonable. The service was just as good, very personable. Made friends! Must go !
