Stopped into this Konoba for lunch today. It was busy and plenty of locals eating hearty plates of food. However service was slow and without a smile. I did note that other servers were a lot more pleasant so perhaps I was unlucky. Anyway the food. Portions are huge! The grilled meat and veg looked delicious and my salad could... More

This is the place to have excellent food at very reasonable prices especially considering the generous portions served here. Friendly service and helpful advice have been the characteristic for us when looking for a place to have a typical konoba lunch. We have eaten here now at least four times with the same results. Consistent!

We went there on a whim since it turned to be one of the two restaurants close to our place of staying. And it was recommended by our host. Having little kid of 3,5 years old we did a last minute check of reviews, learned about need to reserve, tasty food and not so good service and decided to give... More

Awesome place. We had a huge portion of mixed grilled meat (and chips) for 110 Kunas (13gbp), enough for my girlfriend and I. Half a caraffe of good red wine for 40 Kuna (5gbp). Fast service and a beautiful setting too, overlooking the sea and its own garden. We were staying nearby, but I highly recommend it if staying in... More

We asked for a table and the waitress said there was one available but then the owner came and addressed us with dis-courtesy saying that there was no place indeed for us and just turned her back on us without even saying sorry.

One of best places in Zadar for eating meat. It is very good place for dinning at resonable prices. You will not go hungry from this place. Try ''Plata Rafaelo''. Very very good!!

We got there right at the dinner rush and luckily, we snubbed a table. The wait to place our order took a minute but so worth it! The portions are huge. I got their wienerschnitzel and my guy got their steak. Both were so good. The steak was perfectly cooked. I felt bad for not eating the entire wienerschnitzel. It... More
