Dinner was severed just perfectly, staff very attentive, not to forget the veal was just perfect. A little difficult to locate due to its location in the rear of hotel and on the lower street level.

A unique restaurant beneath the grand arcades and perhaps one of the Opatija’s best kept secrets. Crossing from the old to the new, a historic building transformed into a modern day dining experience. The location and serene ambience invites you to leave your worries at the door and enjoy our culinary delights. Friendly atmosphere and prices that represent great value for our guests provide an upscale casual dining experience . Our professional approach coupled with superior quality food offerings and service, has proven to be highly successful. At Sveti Jakov, our menu is focused on good and simple Mediterranean cuisine, such as grilled fresh fish, grilled steak, fish soup and homemade pasta with a commitment using local and susainable foods. Restaurant has been serving prosciutto of the highest quality, a large collection of cheese, freshly baked bread, handmade pasta and daily fresh fish.
