If I could say one thing about this restaurant, it would be GO THERE! Perhaps one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We reserved a table on the pier over the water. We got to see a lovely sunset as we enjoyed our meal. The food was really good. My boyfriend had filet mignon with truffle sauce... More

It was lovely to come upon this restaurant by the beach. The service was excellent and friendly and the steak really was so tender and exceptionally cooked to perfection. The food was so nice we went back for breakfast the next day where we were treated to fresh bread and fruit on the house.

Good reception, good menu, good food. Exellent beef. All in all a pleasant experience! The location is just superb, by the shoreline, but still away from all the evening bustle of the Makarska promenade.

If you visit the beautiful coastal resort of Makarska, Croatia, this restaurant is a must! The service, food and location are exceptional. Whether you like to eat under the pine trees or sit on the jetty under the stars, it'll be a fantastic experience you don't want to miss!

Beautiful place BUT; service was terrible, waitress didn't even smile and she didn't know the containment of the food. Food was tasteless and it took long time to come. So shortly, i don't recommend this at all. It felt like waitress wanted us to leave.

What a place to bring someone you love. Food and wine outstanding and the scenario - a table for two on the beach with the waves gentle rolling in as the sun sets behind the mountains too much for some - one guy got down on one knee and proposed to his sweetheart when were last in there!
