We sat outside on a sunny Saturday but beware it is on the main road so lorries rumble past. Food was excellent - oysters and a huge fish platter for 2 with good local wine.

We enjoyed the black risotto mushroom soup and fungi ravioli. They have great outdoor seating and I hear there is s patio out back that we missed. Ask them for vanilla ice cream with pumpkin oil and seeds. It is amazing!

We were staying in the connected Hotel Hvala (see review), and although aware of the reputation of the restaurant, were at first unsure. The inside decor was cheesy, and sitting outside fraught with risk (disgusting smokers, motorbikes). However, the food did not disappoint: sea bass carpaccio, followed my moules, then trout, with cheese for desert, schnapps and coffee. The service... More

No wonder the Italians come here for special dinners. All four of our meals were delicious. We sat outside and it was delightful. Outstanding, attentive service. Don't miss it.

We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights and ate both evenings at the hotel restaurant. The food was very good and service reasonable (ie. but not fast). The tables outside on the terrace felt a little too close together to be totally relaxing but much nicer than sitting inside. The quality of the food is surprisingly good considering the... More

They serve good food and the service is quite nice, but it`s clear that they operate under Italian rules. They charge you 2€/person for service (sitdown fee), tap watter is 4€, ... Makes u not want to give a tip. Maybe thats why next door pizzeria is full of guests and this one is empty. Fot, however, was nice (not... More

My wife and I had some good seafood there - cold starter and seafood plate, tasty with no questions, as expected from such high ranked place. What was not as expected was a service, we had dispute with the waiter regarding few things - table location (near extermely noisy air conditioner, while other tables seemed not booked), then next table...

The restaurant should be visited irrespective of the hotel, as the standard and quality are totally different. A wonderful fish menu and excellent wines. The chef came to talk to us with such enthusiasm for what he wants to achieve. First rate.

We ate in this restaurant this week and had all of us amazing meals. We all chose something different, but all agreed that my mossels and fresh trout were the best. We had great wine, service was great. Lovely place to enjoy with family and friends. I would highly recommend.
