The restaurant is located right next to the river, and is nicely dressed. The staff is friendly and fast. The food is okay, most of it tasted good. The amount of food is enormous.. we ordered the 'plate for two' with five people, and still there was food left. Price/quality is good, location is nice, so I do recommend this... More

We visited Vrbas with our friends who are locals. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and attentive. The portions served are very large. Four adults and two children shared two salads and one large main entree. The food was very good. We would definitely return again.

Good food, AMPLE portions, nice location overlooking the river. Nice place to be the river. Seemed like a place where business is conducted over lunch.

We ordered Wiener schnitzel, steak and stuffed squid The portions were big, but nothing special. I prefer quallity than quantity. The meat was a bit hard. We order some grilled vegetables and they brought fried. There were a lot... More

We had a party of 10 people therefore had quite a few different dishes to see and taste. One observation is that all of the dishes were huge for people that do not eat a... More
