We entered the restaurant and the waiter said that it was fully booked. We got a small side table. During the evening it turned out that we were the only guests, besides a marrried couple in an other room. The food was not very good, we had veal and beef.

First time in my life I had an undercooked fish and the worst shrimp soup ever! I'm so disappointed!

Don't go is the bottom line. Perhaps once this was the place for great food, as our hotel said it still was (and we were willing to sacrifice the sea view for the purported superior food, despite Trip Advisor ratings and our tour guide that pointed us in other directions), but that is so NOT the case. Terrible menu (looks... More

On the same street as Pimpinella, not as good but by no means poor, if you want some variation on where to eat. Nicely lit up at night.

Use to be really famous place to eat. Has been renovated since last time I was here, some years ago. Still good levels of service but quality of food become a bit too much commercial. Even though is a restaurant still worth the price you pay I think that use to have better times. For a regular dinner still good

No dislikes. The food is good well cooked. The staff are really excellent. If you are lucky enough to be staying in one of there excellent suites you will have a great time. I must add that booking really early is essential . You will love it.

Nice restaurant. Close to the sea, maybe 5 minutes walk, 1 minute with a car. Great steak and great service.

The first thing I have noticed was the very nice looking restaurant with great interior. The waiter was very nice with all meaning of his culture. The dish I have taken was risotto with shrimps- it was one of the worst dishes; bad choosing grains of rice, the shrimps amount weren't too big and their freshness was questionable, it was... More

The staff was very friendly and helped guide me in selecting a meal. It was a slow night at the restaurant so they were able to provide me extra attention. I felt as though I was in a Croatian home eating dinner. I would certainly go back again.
