Staff were friendly and accommodated us in side without a booking although to sit outside is nicer as inside is quite small and stuffy. Waiter brought us a selection of freshly cooked fish to choose. Fish was fresh only negative is that the food is cooked with quite a bit of oil. Wine was also great. Enjoyed the meal.

We were intending to order the tuna but the waiter recommended instead a fish called amberjack. It proved to be among the best fish we've ever eaten. An other waiter also chose the wine for us, a bottle of "R5" from Bibich. The combination of fish and wine were perfect. The service was very good, they even charged our Iphone.... More

We trusted by excellent recommendations from internet. Cozy atmosphere in a small street of the city center. Excellent service and amazing food. The fish mix plate on the grill for 2 person is among the best we ever tried. Reasonable price.

Lonely planet pointed us in the direction of Konoba Matejuska which was fully booked so we were told to try the Marjan around the corner. We turned up and they had a lot of reservations but managed to squeeze us in. The waiter was great, he really understood the menu and wouldn't let us order drinks until he knew what... More

I booked and visited with high expectation by the other reviews. Sea bream was good. Risotto - I can make it better with nicer cheese. No visa card with a broken machine? Sounds like an excuse for avoiding fees or taxes.

Dear traveller Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to write your review although it may not sound good. First of all we can not believe that you can say that you can make much better risotto with cheese because we do not have risotto with cheese. Also if it happens that our card machine has a teminal... More

Went to check it out due to the good reviews. Fully booked but they squeezed us in with an early booking 6pm. Fish was fresh and very nicely cooked- local Seabass. Can't fault it and decent value too.

Great service and food - our very friendly waiter talked us through all the different options and explained about each fish and his recommendation of wine to go with it. Food itself was super-fresh and, most importantly, very tasty.

Peaceful atmosphere outside the Diolectian Palace and very lovely staff. Me and my boyfriend shared the classic "Fish Plate" which had both sea bass and bream, shrimp, cuttle fish, tuna and mussels in it. The food was very fresh and well prepared, the only thing I was missing was some sauce for the dish. Otherwise, very good experience.

We chanced upon this restaurant late on our second last eve and were really lucky a table hadn't turned up. The waiter said we could sit and have a drink and if they still hadn't arrived in 15 minutes we could have the table. The restaurant was very busy and the waiter handled this very well and was always apologetic... More

We enjoyed the fish platter for two here and it was beautiful, such a lovely little family run restaurant with very friendly staff.
