“The place to be in Sibenik”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

Wonderful location next to the famous St. James Cathedral.

Professional and friendly staff that was all the time invisible at our side, very pleasant.

The wines were good and our waiter could explain them very well, we only missed our favorite sparkling "Misal" from Istria, but we had a nice sparkling Rosé from Italia. After this a really good "R 5" from Bibich...yummy

The food is marvelous and all homemade, with some really nice ideas.
The octopus salad was made with red kraut, very tasty and not the normal stuff that we found x times during our visits in Croatia. The ham was one of the best we tasted and a small plate of cheeses was really delicious - local cheeses and a homemade pepper and caramel marmelade (super cool !! ). After this we had a very tasty teriyaki octopus toast and a well made risotto.
The desert was marvelous, a very good lemon cake and the splendid "Country Glas" (Olive oil mousse, melon jam, almond biscuit in a glas layered like a B52).

One of the big shots and rising stars in Croatia, no doubt!

Be there, taste it, enjoy!

By the way, some directories list this restaurant as a place for breakfast, but it opens at 12 we were told.

“Nice food in sibenik”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

I had dinner with my husband on 23/9. Nice food with perfect view which is Just in front of the St Jacobs Church. The location is perfect and easy to find. We order a mussels ,an octopus salad and the rissotto of the day. The waitress recommended us a good wine. All of them are very good and above my expectation .
However, they should improve their arrangement on table arrangement . Only one outdoor table was occupied when we arrived. The waiter said other outdoor tables on the stairs were reserved. So we chose taken the seat near the terrace( with fair view ). Later on I saw two couples walk in and request those outdoor table . They allow them take the table without reservation .This is really unfair. I think this is a room for their improvement.

“Perfect food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012 via mobile

Both the steak and the pasta were exceptional, with great wines. The mussels are very good too! Service was also fine, the small garden-restaurant is ideal for romance as well as business meetings.

“Coup de coeur !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

Amazing restaurant, with a choice between a view on the cathedral, or quiet terrace or a cosy room inside (with stones). The food is awesome, the service perfect. We were so happy after our first experience that we specifically came back to Sibenik 4 days later to eat again in this restaurant. For those who love the mineral white wine, the Gegic Grand Cuvée from Pag island is a surprisingly good wine. Just excellent !

“the food was cold”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

I was disappointed with the service of this restaurant, when several years ago I was their guest, I placed them in the top of Croatian gastronomy, however, yesterday I experienced disappointment, the food we waited a very long time, and it was cold, the waiters were slightly disinterested, and worst of all, the food was tasteless, and at the end is very costly.
