Mimice is one of the oldest fish restaurants in Zagreb, located just a few minutes from Ban Jelačić Square. OK, maybe the word “restaurant” doesn’t suit it very well – this place looks more like an unpretentious bar from the Socialist era, where you order and pay for your food at the counter and dine while sitting on high stools behind bar-like tables. In many ways, time has stopped in this blue-colored joint.
The interior is somewhat small and usually packed during lunch hours. However, in spite of being so popular for decades, it’s pretty clean. Its menu usually consists of fried Adriatic squid, sprats, sardines, mackerel and hake, that can be served with fries, potato or bean salad and a glass of beer, wine or soda.
The food is always very fresh, really tasty and quite cheap. Still, regardless of its quality, people don’t usually hang here for too long – Mimice is a spot where you eat your meal quickly, which makes it a perfect place for travelers on a tight schedule.
