We came to the restaurant because we knew it had beautiful view of sunset. The food was even better than the view. My husband ate grilled octopus and I had minced steak, and for dessert we had cheesecake. The food was very nicely decorated and...tasted delicious. Staff was really good and helpful. We're definitely coming back.More

If you are looking for a restaurant that offers quality instead of just big portions you won‘t be disappointed. Tired of eating more of the same every day I saw the positive reviews on TripAdvisor and decided to give this restaurant a shot - and...was not disappointed. Slightly more expensive than most places in Lopar but still totally reasonable and you are rewarded with spectacular food alongside a spectacular view. I dined there twice and everything I had was excellent: the mussels, the black spaghetti, dessert and drinks. Staff was professional and attentive too. All in all a great experience. Definitely recommended if you want more than just your typical tourist food. Just a note: I would avoid the place on windy evenings as the terrace is a bit exposed to the elements.More

Thank you for such a nice review. We wanted to bring something new to the island and give a chance to local ingredient to shine. Mussels are really perfect dish and with buzara sauce the best one! Hope to welcome you back for tasting our...More

In a restaurant with a splendid view, nice and highly professional staff we had an opportunity to have the last dinner in a season. Unfortunately, the restaurant is closed during the winter. Our dinner was very good, fresh local ingredients, traditional with a modern twist....And reasonably priced, a rare find in Croatia, where modern design in combination with a nice food usually mean overpriced experience. Will be back in spring!More

We have been out for a romantic meal, which was booked week in advance, when arrived we were seated on the spot that wasn't promised while I have reserved the table, nevertheless the views was still great. We were offered sparkling wine which was great,...my partner ordered Belgium lager which arrived in plastic glass and it was wheat beer rather than lager, restaurant at that class should know the made of beer and it should never been served in plastic glass. There was guests arriving after us who have been served with their home made bread, I asked staff if we could have some, it was actually quiet nice and served with their home made olive oil which was great. We ordered starters and our mains all of these were great, the panne was little bit on hard side and I know what Al dente pasta is. Also we ordered wine, thinking we will get bottle instead we had glass, once asked why glasses instead of bottle, the staff explained it cost the same. To us it didn't matter if Mr who served us wanted to run up and down every time for a fresh glass of wine instead of just bringing us bottle so we could drink it at our pace and not harrasse poor man for each glass every time. When trying to achieve fine dining there is few things you don't do, argue with your customer, bring beer in plastic glass, forget the bread, when obviously that is something everybody else is getting around us. This is not a bad review, food was good and with attentive staff to your customer or even maybe get another person on your terrace and this could be quiet little gem on Rab.More

We visited this place on referral and had quite high expectations. Staff was very friendly but their service was not on high level as you would expect in this kind of restaurant. Food was ok but nothing special. I must say I was quite disappointed....The view on sunset was amazing and made this dinner special.More
