L'avis de Gault&Millau

In Dalmatia, Tinel is a synonym for the warmest space in the house, the one where family, relatives and friends gather, most often around the table. This is the atmosphere you will feel in the small Zadar restaurant Tinel, which is both a bistro and a pizzeria, and is located in the narrow street of the historic center. At Tinel you will be greeted by friendly staff who will take care of you even when the restaurant is full. Here they serve traditional Dalmatian food, but always with some creativity. We started lunch with tuna carpaccio, on a bed of arugula, with capers and coarsely grated Grana Padano cheese. The fresh tuna was sliced ​​a little thicker to feel the fullness of the flavour and spiced with their excellent extra virgin olive oil. As we remembered their spaghetti with gropi, slightly larger vongole, we ordered them this time as well and we were not wrong. A simple, classic dish was excellent once again. Perfectly cooked pasta, al dente, first-class vongole, good olive oil with a minimum of garlic, a little parsley and a touch of white wine. As we saw the guests at the next table eating grilled squid that looked very appealing, we opted for the same. Finely baked, with the smell and taste of barbecue, they were delightfully juicy. The usual Dalmatian chard came as a side dish. Well seasoned, it remained nicely green because it was not overcooked which is a common case in many restaurants along the coast. Finally, we tasted a roll of rump steak stuffed with cheese, arugula and pesto. The excellently grilled meat was served with baked potatoes and vegetables. Tinel once again confirmed that their simple and unpretentious vision of local gastronomy is successful and that the authentic tastes and aromas of the Mediterranean always attract guests. If you are in Zadar, make sure to visit them, and book a table in advance.
