Perhaps, one and the principal minus is long-time service. The meals are mostly delicious, especially chicken in different sauces, gnocci and seafood.

We we're guests at Le Meridien and went here during one of the evenings when we wanted to eat dinner close to the hotel. From our moment of arrival this was a good experience. Attentive welcoming staff with good knowledge about food and wine. Best octopus salad starter ever and we've had a few. This evening we wanted meat and... More

Food is tasty and presented very well. Good wines. Hardworking staff. Place was very busy, probably best to book. The outdoor seating area is fully enclosed so there are no views and it gets very hot in there. However it is worth going for the quality of food.

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews on TA. We thought it wise to make a reservation fearing the restaurant would be busy, we arrived at 8:30pm, it wasn't busy, a third of the tables were occupied in the outside terrace area. The setting was pleasant we were warmly welcomed by a member of staff. The service, however was... More

Podstana dosent offer a wide range of culinary experiences, and hence it was nice to dine at a decent restaurant. The food is nice, and the staff attentive. Good value for money.

Arkada is a little difficult to find but quite convenient if you are staying at the Meridien. Service was excellent and friendly. The grilled fish was good and in line with other Croatian restaurants. The gnocchi was excellent. There is no view and it can get quite warm in the restaurant. Would recommend if you are staying in the area.
