Nice wine but expected a bit more from the food

The atmosphere was exclusive and nice, but the staff turned off the fans due to one very sensitive family and made the rest of the restaurant feel very uncomfortable. The food was good, almost excellent but as of the high priceranges I expected just a bit more value.

Great food and excellent service that is comparable with the world's best restaurants. On the recommendation of the waiter we ate tuna steak and stuffed veal steak with mozzarella. For a vast selection of wines that have in their wine cellar we chose domestic sort of wine (Posip Grgic) which is an excellent fit with our meals.

You don't know if the service or the food is better. Quality and diversity of food is excellent if you like fish or meat dishes

Ambience in garden setting was nice. The appetizers which were brought to our table and which we did not order were added to our bill, 7.50 kuna per person. Of our two main dishs,grilled scampi and beef steak with mushroom sauce, one was terrible and the other O K. When I was asked by two separate waiters if the food... More

The food was good, you can't miss if you ask the waiters to suggest you what to eat. It has no view on the sea, but the place looks really cute, like a big luxurious garden. Only one of the 4 of us ordered the dessert because we were too full, but we were a little sorry because the cake... More

Except healthy, diverse dishes it offers a real Mediterranean atmosphere and friendly staff. We had tuna steak, octopus salad and a great bottle of Grošić Pošip. Everything was more than good!

We went there twice during our Makarska trip this year. (It's our third summer in a row coming to Makarska.) Service - very good. No complaints at all. And the setting is just lovely - a beautiful garden in the center of town. A few thoughts.... Shrimp and scampi are both mentioned on the menu, but there were things we... More

Wonderful meal with another couple from our boat - Titan small boat cruise holiday - restaurant was recommended by boat manager Dado. Perfect staff, meal, wine, price! Such fun also to sit outside & well-away from smokers.

Walking along the beach in Makarska in the evening, particularly, is a lovely experience. There are many good restaurants and lots of things to do and buy. The beach is delightful and covered with stones. You will need a beach pad or thick towel to sit on the beach.
