Very good restaurant, great service, dog friendly, in a little square inside the medieval town of Kastav. We were there during the Jerry Ricks Blues Festival and a Screen was erected so we could listen and watch the live concert even better than on the...main square. Recommending the excellent dessert with assorted treats. Also White House eine (a cuvée) very gone.More

We chose Vegetarian menu for both of us as proposed by the restaurant -it was good but you must like cheese very much ... all plates had some except for dessert. The main issue was communication with People working there - we didn't had explanations...on anything during the evening , except for one plate. Concerning wine, only one proposed-cabernet sauvignon - produced in Croatia- for french People loving good wine, it's a disappointment. They talked very well german, not english. : a bit frustrated from a "gourmet restaurant", as they named it. Plus, something was wrong in the sauce of my dish, but I never heard any apologyze. Communication to review.More

This place is so worth a drive. The location of this restaurant is in the historic area in the small hill town (must see) and I assume they will go for Michelin star. The quality and presentation is for sure there.

This restaurant is in a hotel, which is usually a red flag for me, but I just had the best meal of my 20+ day trip!! I opted for the fish menu- 3 courses, all a surprise. Every single thing was excellent. It was a...ton of food, with wine pairing. Service was excellent, food was on par with anything I’ve had at Michelin starred restaurants. Presentation, flavor, texture, it had it all. Even if you’re not planning to visit this hill town, add this restaurant to your itinerary. Excellent meal, and as a bonus they made mine completely gluten free. Pretty impressive.More

We read online that the chef hear was the father of slow food in Croatia so we made a reservation for our one evening in Rijeka. Getting to the restaurant was about a 25 minute taxi ride to Kastav, but it was well worth it....The food did not disappoint. There really is no menu. The owner asks you if you what fish or meat and if you have any allergies. Then you get three delicious courses at very reasonable prices given the quality of the food. The fish all tasted wonderfully fresh and was perfectly prepared.More

Tried the fish taster menu and enjoyed it thoroughly each course had a different wine and we really enjoyed the experience I like the Pinot Noir, my wife the Sauvignon Blanc. We started with a pink prosecco from Istria the cod with polenta was very...good tooMore
