I often read from tripadvisor before deciding where to eat, but this time i was tired and bored because of many closed or full restaurants. so i entered into this "restaurant" placed by the sea, in a wonderful exceptional location. outdoor tables by the sea ... beautiful ... I saw quite full, and it made me hopeful. immediately after sitting... More

Senior waiter (manager?) was intrusive and up-stage, pretended not to understand what we asked for and charged double price. Very disappointing.

My husband and I recently visited this restaurant. We initially thought we would eat, but not finding anything on the menu that appealed to us at the time, we ordered a drink and thought we would sit and enjoy the beautiful setting. We quickly realized that this was not appreciated by the wait staff, but especially by the owner/manager. In... More

Despite visiting twice, it is difficult to give a totally balanced review of this restaurant. The location is great with nice views of the sunset and the food (lasagne and sea food) was very good on both occasions. The issue was the erratic behaviour of the manager - who, depending on the customer, could be in turn: charming, attentive, confident,... More

The position of the restaurant is enticing but resist, as the food is average at best and the wait staff are rude and arrogant. We were forced to pay in cash and the waiter was reluctant to give us our change preferring to keep it for a tip. Avoid this place at all costs.

We stopped for lunch on a very hot day and we wanted to sit by the sea. The restaurant is up a side street by the harbour. The waiter greeted us and was making us feel welcome. I had spaghetti carbonara and my sister had pork kebabs with chips and salad, both were delicious. I had a glass of local... More

The food was decent and the location is perfect. Service was good. Two things to mention are that you're brought bread (which you're then charged for) and you can't pay by card. You can pay by card everywhere in Croatia!

Visited because of great views... Food passable... Service slow... Head waiter (owner?) a bit full of himself...When we came to pay the bill (around £35) the waitress took my £40 and disappeared... We were going to tip 10% but we prefer to have the change back and then tip, not just to have it taken without asking... We gave it... More

My husband and I dined here last night. We were only kept waiting a couple of minutes for a table by the sea ... the outlook was beautiful. The staff, contrary to some of the previous reviews were very friendly. We both had melon to start with which was tasty enough. I had the chicken salad (which was okay but... More
