Wonderful food and very nice local wines as recommended by the sommelier. The desserts were among the best we ever tasted! The terrace in the garden above the Lungomare and the sea is the perfect location for a romantic dinner.

Enjoyed every bite of mixed seafood plate and fresh fish fille with scampi puree along with white wines, zlahtina from Krk and Istrian Malvasia. All ended well with a rainbow desert, from teran ice cream to white and dark chocalate mouses with rasperries.
