“Simple, fresh and cosy staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

I don't write reviews often, but this place is amazing. It would be a sin not to share experience! Very friendly staff - two ladies making jokes. There was no english menu, but that was not a problem. We just had to told the price and we got a big plate of sea food, a glass of wine and beer. The lady made a discount for us as we were students. Fresh, delicious, but simple. The surroundings isn't fancy, but when food is just excellent, local staff is communicating to you at every step, what else do you need?

“At the fishmonger's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I would not suggest this place to everyone: if you’re looking for elegant or smart or charming restaurant, you’d better go elsewhere... Konoba Ribarnica is a precious address for enjoying very fresh fish, simply cooked and informally and friendly served along the street or in a small room downstairs. You won’t have any menu: just fish, fresh fish, chosen at the counter and put into the pot; literally, from the fishmonger’s to the plate. Octopus, shrimps, dentex (what I’ve actually eaten) are to be remembered. Prices are much more than reasonable: really cheap.

“Good an honest food, no tricks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

When we travel, we tend to move away from the fancy restaurants and classy styles. To go just a few meters away from the main street may sometimes mean that you will enjoy far better dishes for much less money. This might the case in Volosko as well. The village has several highly recommended restaurants. We had dinner at Plavi Podrum last summer and I do not remember anything from it, also when reading the latest comments, it did not convince me that I should go back. So we moved up to this little konoba. First, I have to say, there was no service at all :) Do not come here if you expect to be properly waited at the table, if you expet white table cloths and a nice menu. There isn't any. The lady cooking the fish is your waiter and your bartender. The fish on the stand is the menu. Just point out what you want and tell her how you want it, she will do the rest. And she does this in an amazing way! We had 2 different types of fish, fried calamari, octopus salad, green salad and fries for kids. 1 liter of house wine (that comes from a tap), a bit of beer and water. We had 4 adults and 2 kids, I guess the bill was around 500 kn, so a very fair price for fresh seafood. Fish was fresh, very tasty- just grilled and seasoned with a bit of salt and garlic. Fried calamari is always a hit when we eat out with kids- these were perfectly cooked, not too oily. Octopus salad was nicely seasoned and not too acid as i may happen sometimes. The place is tiny, they have a few tables indoors and a few tables outside on the street. But the food is very good and I would definately go there again!

“Horrible service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2014

Was in this place 2 days ago. First asked what is the difference in taste between two types of fish there. The guy there say he does not know and he never tried it (so very doubtfully a family run place). Ordered a fish with garlic and water. Water never arrived, fish was tasteless and no garlic sauce. Lemons were in pieces like it was the last lemons in the world (so small). And the worst was that the fish skin was basically not peeled, which is a pity since i love it's taste and it is the healthies part of fish in general. Plus the guts were not propery taken out, so there was a bad bitter taste and some yellow substance inside. Honestly, it felt like it was prepared by the person who has no the first idea of how to cook a fish. and all that small fish (around 300 gramms including the head) costed EUR 25! HORRIBLE and DISAppointing, especially after we went there just a month ago and enjoyed very tasty fish....
