We very lucky to be staying in the same road and walked past the bistro. The service was very good and the food was delicious and very good value. The spicy pork and rice was great but the grilled baby squids was the winner.

By far the best restaurant on Cres Island. The service and their fresh fish is 5-star worthy. Try their grilled scampi - directly from the Cres Sea!
