Ukusno - lecker - yummy!

After being quite disappointed with Croatian cuisine, we came here and had the safe bets truffle pasta and pasta with scampi. Both were very nice and delightful. The white housewine (Malvizija from Istria) was very decent. We learned that all deserts are homemade, so we ordered the chocolate cake... read more

The staff is fast and knows many languages. The food is great and tasty, everything, salads, fish, deserts.. The staff helps you with the filleting the fish.. You can bring your dog if your dining on the teras.. The only downside is that in comparison to other restorants on Lošinj it's way priceyer..

Well, I can't imagine why comments on trip adviser are so good!!! Its not worth it! Its really average, no taste, no effort, no imaginatin, its like cooking at home but much more expensive... Lets be honest: it serves against hunger, but thas all!

Ok, first we ate a good buzara of shels (dagnje). Later we ordered a rizotto "cigale" and it was without taste. We ordered a white fish with capreberies, without any taste. The only thing good was the shels. Price 25€ per person.

Great place and great view but for me it is a little too expensive. You have to be prepared to pay a lot, because we have eaten only three meals and it was for the price of more meals (of same quality) somewhere else. They offer good food but portions are not so big for that price. I recommend to... More

My husband and I went there for lunch. It was not crowded because it was a rainy day, but we managed to finish our meal outside. We enjoyed a great sea view and great food: soup and calamari for me and barbecue for my husband. A kind waiter persuaded us to stay for coffee as well :-). Everything was nice... More

Nice restaurant with the view on bay situated in a pine forest. The pines are high and smells wonderful. Food good. Quite expensive. Perhaps that day when we were the waiter was tired, but we have the polite request for more patience with the guests :)
