Two of us shared one apetizer and one 1,5 kg fish. We barely ate it all, it was delicious. Wine was a good match for this meal. Service was polite and proffesional. It was worth the money.

We are very sorry that you did not appriciated the dinner, but we have to confirm that we offered you to change your fish and we have to say that the fish was fresh. The issue was in the fish evisceration. Best regards Manager.

Gorgeous food, wait was adequate for the quality. Reccomend the homemade gnocchi and the bread and OIL (to die for) at the start were wonderful. Would definitely visit again. Just waiting for dessert! I'm sure it will be beautiful!

Ate well and paid a reasonable price. Menu was fairly wide and staff attentive. Was full of regular customers, so that is a good sign too.

This is my second review of this great little restaurant near Umag, so I will be somewhat brief: friendly staff, nice ambiance, well-prepared food. This time we had two different types of scallops--the larger ones in a mind blowing sauce that demanded dipping bread to...More
