This restaurant was a pleasant surprise. The location is excellent right on the sea side with beautiful view. It is not a gourmet place but the food is OK. You can spend here few nice hours in a very pleasant surrounding.

As we've stayed in nearby hotel, we used to go to this bar for quite few days. Food is delicious, but bit pricey - you can get most of these in town center for lower prices. We' had pizza (they're making genuine Napoletana pizza) and...it was really good, then scampi buzara (Kvarner scampi - not imported ones), fried calamari (again, adriatic calamari and not patagonica). Menu is not that big, which in my oppinion is good, but all we've had was super tasty. If you want to eat by beach with great sea view, and if you don't mind paying bit more this is the place for you. Staff is mostly consisted of older "old school" waiters and that is a plus.More

We expected decent pizza at this place, however, one of the worst pizza we ever had! Additionally, there is nothing on the menu for vegetarians, let alone vegans. Having this restaurant being placed within the “family hotel complex”, one would expect some kind of kids...menu. But no, nothing for kids on the menu. Do not make mistake and visit this place. The view is excellent, though...More

We reserved a table for lunch. Then waited over an hour for 3 pizzas and a tomato soup. The waitor told us we are going to wait, but could have done it more precisely and politely. After an hour, we asked again about pizzas and...he responded he was bussy. The soup's quality was bellow its value. The pizzas were average. The seaview is fantastic, unfourtunately unlike the food quality and staff. A family lunch ruined.More

We ordered pizza capriciosa, after 20 minutes waiting for waiter to come. I love all kinds of pizza, but this one was really bad.

On the good side, they have excellent pizza, much better than the pizzas you can find on the rest of the coast. Grilled squid was very good, it was Adriatic squid, not the Patagonica kind, with quality istrian olive oil and very good homemade bread....Creamy shrimp scampi soup was unfortunately a disappointment, as it was a watered down, three little tiny shrimp version of a soup that actually should have been and was priced at.. The prices are a bit on the higher side as should be expected of a place like that (on the beach, right under the hotel). Oh and the staff just shrugged their shoulders as I inquired about the lack of shrimp in the shrimp soup - that's how it is, they said.More

We were in this restaurant on January 7 2020. It was completely empty at lunch time. That must have been a high critical warning to us. My wife has ordered grilled fish and I a portion of fried squid. The prices are against all common...sense. And then the taste. It makes you want to throw up. Tons of salt with squid. I have returned mine and asked for a new portion with less salt as the squid itself looked fine to me. But what happened then was a personal insult.The waiter has brought something thas has looked like dried oranges which has tasted like chewing gum (I am really not exaggerating, my wife has confirmed this impression). He pretended, that was a better fried squid. I have returned that one as well after trying one piece and almost throwing up thereafter. My wife is a peaceful Bhudist, so she has reluctently choked down her salt with fish. After this experience, I was fighting against a bad vomiting reflex. Whoever happens to come close to this restaurant, make a big circle around it if you love your life.More

Unfriendly and unprofessional staff but view, see, nature and food are very good. I hope that staff will replace with better people.

I was there with the family, wife and baby doughter. We had grilled chicken and adriatic calamari. Both were exceptional! Fine table white wine, but costly, price per litre was 30€
