Good fish restaurant in the old town

Lovely fish speciality restaurant in the old town. Cannot book after 7.30pm and is very popular so be ready for a wait.

Had dinner at Macondo. Spaghetti with prawns was noodles in chicken stock and parsley with the smallest shrimp you could find, so basically just salty noodles. Grilled veggies were a small serving of salted vegetables. The fish was decently done although extremely over priced as with most of the menu. Wait staff were ok, not too friendly, not too bad....

Excellent service - all the staff were friendly and attentive. Really lovely location tucked away on side street. The fish was fresh and cooked really well. Probably the best fish of our whole time in Croatia. Does not take bookings after 7.30 but we got a seat anyway.

We could not fault the service here. The food was also very good and tasty. Two friends and I shared the fish pot with potatoes. There was a... More
