Everything was very good, with the exception of the mussels which were amazing. Some of the freshest and tastiest I've had, even compared to PEI in PEI (Prince Edward Island). The girls next to us ordered on the appearance of ours and literally finished the steaming broth with a spoon (we opted for bread, silly Americans as we are).

The place was OK, but the portions are too small compared to the price. My girlfriend had shrimps and I had a steak. The Shrimp serving was too small for a main course. When ordering a steak, you have to order sides, like fries and vegetables as extras. We ordered French fries and bread, but got grilled vegetables. The waiter... More

Ordered octopus salad and fish stew for 2 people (it’s a lot of food). Stew had a few different kinds of fish (incl monkfish) and potatoes. This was really good, local dish that we had wanted to try.

We've got recommend for this place and I'm so glad we did. It's in the street od old city center. Everything we tasted was delicious. We eat "gregada" - local specialty with fish and vegetables. We loved it. It was better than home made. For desert I definitely recommend "prosek" (liqueur) and "medenjak". Both local specialties. Try this and you... More

I've been to Macondo three times. I've had the rather famous spaghetti & lobster, which was good, but not amazing. The other two times, I've had fish, which has also been ok. However, on our last visit there, my friend ordered a steak, which was far from "medium done", which he had ordered. There was quite a lot of blood,... More

We stumbled across this gorgeous fish restaurant one night and were absolutely delighted that we found it! The service was friendly and informative and the food excellent. My husband had grilled whole squid which were perfectly BBQed and tender and I had the waiter's recommendation of the spaghetti with seafood. Both meals were generous in size and packed with flavour.... More

We chose this restaurant as it was way from the main square and had a nice atmosphere.we sat in the street adjacent to two their tables, and straight away we felt comfortable chatting to our dining neighbours. The choice of food was good and the house wine was really nice. My daughter chose the seafood platter which she really enjoyed,... More

Had a great time at Macondo, fantastic friendly service. Food was very simple as in most places in Croatia, but made with a lot of care and freshest highest quality ingredients. Would definitely go back and recommend it. Wonderful setting both outside the restaurant with tables set on the street and inside the restaurant.

Lovely little back street mainly pavement seated restaurant, recommended by a receptionist at our hotel. Nice atmosphere and the tastiest seafood pasta dish I have ever had. Busy but good service and inexpensive, house wine by various size carafes also good.
