Home made pasta - awesome! Baked Octupus under Peka is something you have to try. I think we also have the best waiter ever :) It can be crowded at evenings. And btw, the president of uefa eats there. :)

Dear guests, the history of tourism and hospitality in the Barbic family dates back to 1972 when our grandparents, Kristo and Vinka Barbic, welcomed their first tourists. After them our parents Davor and Vilma Barbic cherished tradition of this work for many years as honorable and honest people. Today, after more than 40 years, the two of us brothers, Krišto and Grgo Barbic, with the help of our parents and the support of our families, strive to provide you with as better service as possible. Although the times are modern, as are we, we still respect the tradition. Feel comfortable and well received in our family restaurant!
