This part of Croatia, away from the Plitvice Lakes National Park, is not bursting with places to eat, so Degenija scores simply by being there. It's a chalet-style roadhouse, not long on atmosphere. The food is good enough but doesn't send one into raptures. They deserve praise for producing an allergy-friendly meal without being given any prior warning, but it... More

Well right it's not a 3-star Michelin restaurant, but you're in the middle of nowhere. We had a lovely meal that filled us up after a long morning of hiking in Plitvice. My trout was yummy, and John had the Pork Cutlet. Yes, the fries were frozen. But I wasn't expecting home cooking all the way out there.

They didn't even ask... More

We were staying in Smoljanac and this restaurant was just a short drive away. The food was good and the staff was attentive. We had the grilled trout and a schnitzel with some local beer and it made for a tasty and satisfying dinner. Would probably go there again.

Get your expectations set right and this place is OK. The food is of the "substance trumps finesse" variety, which is fine if you have spent a day walking in the park. Staff were reasonably attentive and friendly and our food arrived quickly. The wine is on then expensive side, but the beer is cheap and good value. My wifes... More

Nice atmosphere and pretty garden area. Waiters were attentive and friendly. My husband had the turkey with Gorgonzola - good but very rich. My son had the beef fingers with fries - very good flavor. I would give this restaurant a try.

This place is nothing special. The restaurant is busy I assume because it is the only one in the area. The service was OK. The food was OK. We ordered the trout special which was good, and the veal escarole. The veal was overcooked/dry, and served with too much cheese. The gnocchi it came with was also dry and not... More

We were desperate to get a decent meal after the weather turned bad on us in Plitvice. Big and nasty thunderstorm and we had to run away. An employee in the park recommended the Winner restaurant nearby. We got there and sat at a table but there was nothing appealing on the menu or in other guests' plates so we... More
