“Very good compared to local competition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

We visited on our first night in Okrug so had nothing to compare with and unfair to comment. Neatly a week on and I look back and rate this restaurant as one to visit if you are eating in Okrug. Yes, as some other reviews say, the menu is typical if the area but the atmosphere was good, despite being on main road, the waiter was quite funny and charming and the food was good - compared to other local restaurants.
To eat better food you need to drive to Duga or get water taxi to Trogir - where you are spoilt for choice

“No no no”

Food was just ok nothing very exciting on the menu nearly all of the restaurants have very similar menus, we had a table right by the mosquito infested toilet, entrance from the very busy street not a pleasant experience. Sorry.

“Disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

-Food-
I had what they called a "typically Croatian meal" (many different types of meat). I think everything was overcooked and not especially tasty.

-Service-
The staff was friendly, and can't complain about the service even though there were only two occupied tables at the moment.

-Other-
Some noise from the main road right in front of the restaurant.

“Excellent, friendly hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

In such a area as Trogir and Ciovo Island, it's a shame that the restaurants don't take advantage of the excellent produce and the very pleasant local style. There seems to be only one menu. The food at Srdela was good but it was the generous service and hospitality that made the day. We had dinner there twice (there are not many restaurants in Okrug Gornji) and enjoyed it both times.

“Great restaurant, lovely service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2011

Roberto and his family know how to make people feel welcome at this small seasonal restaurant perfectly situated on the corner of the harbour at Okrug Gornji. The food is fresh and the wine is cold and staff remember you and your favourite meal when you haven't been in for over 3 months. Simply decorated with a fishing net on the ceiling (equipped with a small hole due to the new fan hitting it!) into which are thrown various fishing products and wine bottle corks. The salads are good, the fish is fresh, the meat is lean, there are a good variety of pasta and pizza dishes and the clientele very international - German, Austrian, Swedish, Danish, Finnish, Danish, British, Polish and Norwegian on my last visit. And of course the kruskovac (pear rakija) is the perfect end to your meal.
