Best Meal in Lav

We loved our experience here! We both started with the Caprese salad, which was so fresh and delicious. My husband had a chicken dish with plums and polenta and I had the black cuttlefish and mushroom risotto. Both meals were phenomenal. The atmosphere of the restaurant is also quite beautiful!

This restaurant was recommended by reception staff at our hotel and we were not disappointed. Don't be put off by the initial entrance from the busy main road as once you climb the steps & cross the car park you are in a quiet street and will be greeted warmly by the staff as you enter the courtyard restaurant (assuming...

Octopus salad was great! Black ink risotto was a bit salty (not uncommon for us in Croatia), grilled veggies were fabulous (also not uncommon); highly touted beef filet with truffle sauce was lovely for one of us, and overpowering (truffles) for the other. Decent wine prices. An easy walk from Le Meridien Lav; also parking out front.

I can honestly say that Restaurant Arkada has the best food I have ever tasted in Croatia. The service was excellent. All the staff were really friendly and knowledgable. I have never been treated so well at a restaurant. The owner went above and beyond as we were very picky English tourists. The owner made some amazing recommendations on the... More

We were a group of 10 happy Americans and we were so glad to find such a wonderful restaurant. Service was great and the food was incredible. The waiter suggested the fillet with black truffles and it was amazing. I have never had that amount of truffles shaved on my dinner ever! This restaurant was recommended by the owner of... More

For a small town this place brings a real touch of class and elegance, the waiting staff deserve a credible mention due to their hard working and friendly attitudes. The food here is of extremely high quality and you can see they take great pride in the way they serve there food. All cooked traditionally and in sight of us... More
