When we got there half the menu was unavailable. We ordered two stir fry dishes that we received after about 40 minutes (the restaurant was more then half empty) with no explanation. The food wasn't great and we got over charged. Great time!

Went with a group of fellow travellers from the local Hotel and had a quiet drink , or so we thought but ended up paying about 50 Kuna more for an identical bottle of beer to what we could get in the Hotel Although on the front you could not really see the sea becuase of cruise ships and cars. Would not repeat the experience

We were in Opatija for 7 days and went to Hemingway three times. Friendly and relaxed atmosphere and the cocktails are amazing. Didn't try the food so can't judge that.
The Spiced Colada is hands down the best cocktail i ever tasted.

The only downside i can think of is that the location/view could be better, but that can't bring my rating down...

We ate there a few times between sunbathing and take some drinks.
It is nice food even...some asian tastes and quite good burger made with a litlle bit more fantasythan on other places.
The coctails we ordered were all very good...just i must gave a minus point...because during the day they can not mix all coctails because i think the barman or woman are there just in the evening and some coctails they couldnt made becauae they didnt had the right fruit at the moment.
Thats not a quiet good excuse.
But all together a nice place with friendly waitors!!
#allways can be sth better

We have been in Opatija for 5 nights, and thought last meal would be at Hemingway Bistro because it seemed like a busy, vibey area on ocean front walkway area. Drinks are way more expensive than any other restaurant/bar we went to in past 5 days .... (195kn for a bottle of house white wine!). We ordered 3 Asian stir fry dishes from their menu (84 + 88 + 82 kn) and all 3 were inedible and too salty....waitress said it’s because of the soya! No it’s because food was badly prepared & old frozen shrimps used .. this was not fresh Asian food. Restaurant staff not interested in our complaint & therefore we would advise holiday makers to seek out the many other delightful & nice restaurants in Opatija. You really don’t have to pay good money to view a car park & eat disgusting food!
