At first I was reluctant, because of some reviews, the looks, the location made me think is the kind of place tourists get plain food at exaggerate prices... Very far from the truth! The prices were more than adequate. We had a Croatian beef specialty which was a good home cooked style dish and the... read more

This is a popular restaurant so make reservations! It has an excellent wine list and all the waiters are familiar with them and can give good recommendations. The truffle pasta is fabulous and the meats are cooked to perfection. Octopus and chick-peas salad is wonderful as is the cured tuna carpaccio... Mainly terrace seating - good shade on the charming... More

The dishes were faboulous. The goat cheese with truffles as cold starter was delicious. We took as main courses typical Dalmatian plates and we were very satisfied. Unfortunately after this we had not space enough for a dessert ! I definitely recommend this address. We had a great dinner. I advise to book a table, especially if you want to... More

This restaurant really deserves its 5 stars on TripAdvisor. From the food which was delicious (recommend the Chef's daily suggestion) to the attention given by the waiters. We found the Croatian Pinot Noir (see picture) surprisingly tasty and ordered even one more bottle to take away. Chickpeas are often used in Croatian cuisine and can be quite disrupting. So ask...

It was so good at Pet Bunara we went twice! The smoked tuna starter is beautifully done and extremely tasty. The swordfish is perfectly cooked and full of flavour. The turkey steak is stuffed with fig jam and covered with almonds which was a first for me and I'd definitely like to recreate it at home. The bbq lamb again... More

Me and my boyfriend found this restaurant through Trip Advisor and we decided to try it since the pictures of food looked really good. We weren't disappointed.

The place is beautiful, the service impeccable, the food...just OUTSTANDING!!! Quite simply one of the best restaurants in Europe, the only reason I don't give them 5 stars is because the cakes they have for dessert aren't up to standard with the rest of the menu.
