This restaurant was peak in terms of service and food! The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive. We had little to no waiting time with everything being freshly prepared. We had a Meat-plate with a freshly made salad before hand. It was delicious. I most...definitely recommend this restaurant if you get the chance I’d say it is worth a detour to eat there especially since it is classic Croatian food.More

I actually didn't visit Lovorka but I ordered their food, using Volt, čevapćići, ražnjići and vješalica (barbicue meat) plus lepinja (bread) and baklavas (sweet). With Volt food arrived for 40 minutes, was still hot and all was very tasty. So, for both Volt and Lovorka...5 star service and quality. Based on my previous visits,I can recommend Lovorka also as restaurant interior and exterior-they have large terrace, service was friendly, fast and professional. It is only 10 minutes drive from Rijeka city and taxi is cheap to Lovorka.More

For sure the best grill in Rijeka city! They have so many different types of meat dishes. They have also many balkan special dishes from Macedonia and Serbia. The prices are really ok. You need to try it.

Waited for an hour, asked for service two times, there were not enough staff to handle the customers. Maybe the owner should improve the bussiness.

We had a great time in Lovorka, followed by delicious food. We were a group of 5 people and all of them were more than happy with ordered food. We enjoyed punjena vjesalica, cevapi, pljeskavica... and you must try their Gravce na Tavce, is a...must with a main dish. Coffee was also good and the service was friendly and fast. There is a free parking space in front of the restaurant and nice terrace. All the best, will come againMore

We visited the restaurant after hearing only good things about the food. The location of it is great and the ambiance is nice.. We came around 30 minutes after it opened so the whole space was so cold, we (and some other guests) were sitting...in our jackets. The food was just ok, nothing special.. We had two portions of grilled vegetables, and the size was too small for the price that we paid for it. I don't think we will be comming back.More

We weren't totally satisfied with the meal as all the grilled vegetables were raw, ajvar wasn't anything extra though the served meat (pjeskavica) was all right and the baklava was also OK.

Simple, cozy and friendly grill restaurant , where you will not ask for a seafood. Čevapčići, pljeskavica, lepinja, green baked cold paprika, baklava, tufahija are one of the few typical and most popular dishes. Oriental origin. Let the waiter put his hands upon you ,...to assess what are your needs. Trust him. Most of the minced meat dishes are home made. To get to Lovorka Kukanić you must get the car. If you are not familiar with the city, take a cab. It is not easy to find but it worth. Cool romantic ambient, fair prices , excellent food are the advantages of the Lovorka Kukanić, probably the best grill place in the Rijeka.More

Very disappointing. Luckily we found a free table, the waiter brought us the menu (full of grammatical errors) and everything went downhill. While we waited for our order they brought us some toasted bread and cheese spread. We did not like it because the spread...was too sour for our taste and we commented it to the waiter but he was not happy to hear it. Then he brought us the main course. Disaster! The meat roll was too greasy, presented on the plate with a whole unseasoned tomato. I got my grilled vegetables (overcooked and tasteless, even bitter) and have been told to wait for the calamari. After a few minutes my vegetables started to cool and I got the calamari - another disaster! Tasteless and bitter. Oh, yes, and they sell you a 4,99 kn can of Coca Cola for 16 kn!More

Everything from grill... tasteful food, normal prices, good service. Portions are big enough. A restaurant is out of the center so you will need a car to get there.

The restaurant ambience is in keeping with the food offered by the restaurant. The choice of eastern food is great and with each one of it something. The price is a bit more expensive than other restaurants offering this type of food, but they are...complementary to service, parking and quality food.More
