Delicious and fresh

I really liked this place! Fresh food, really delicious and generous portions. I ordered gilt-head fish and it was amazing! Very friendly staff. I had my dinner here tonight and will definitely come back tomorrow for lunch :)

The food here was ok and very fast but the service was the most appalling I have ever had. I even going to name and shame the older bald waiter who appeared to be the more senior member of staff. Very rude and couldn't care less about your order. Personal service is very important to be otherwise I would stay... More

Been there on a rather busy week day for lunch. Food was nice, but the waiter couldn't care less. He was even rolling his eyes to a point for no reason. Although I found the food to be ok, and my friends say it's always good, I won't be going again since I want to be treated politely, if not... More

Went to this restaurant several times while staying in Rijeka. Very big portions, but also very tasty. We liked this place a lot.

This is one of my favourite restaurants. I've visited this place so many times over the last two summers. The food is just amazing, I cannot even begin to describe. I have been craving to go there for a year, it is that good. The portions can be a bit big, but you can always take the food you haven't... More

This became our favourite restaurant because of its close proximity to the town centre and harbor. The food was good and a good selection.

I can officially say that I had the worst vegetable soup in my life in this restaurant. It tasted like milk and flour and had bits of celery and red pepper that were most likely just cooked in plain water and thrown in. Honestly the worst ever. For main dish we had pasta carbonara with cartilage bits in almost every... More

My favorite restaurant in Rijeka. Delicious food, big portions, reasonable prices, nice staff, great for quick lunch in peace in the middle of crowded city. I recomend grilled meat and beefsteak - it is soft like butter.
