We have been visiting Festa for over decade, but this year it was a huge disappointment. Not to mention that dinner has became overpriced, waiters do not know differences between different shells they are offering for dinner. They do not know about wine and food...paring, they are offering only the most expensive wines. Be careful, when you are ordering shrimps for a starter you will get 16pcs of it and will pay a lot. My daughter has ordered grilled shrimps for a starter and I have orderd raw shrimps, we got 32pcs of shrimps which is a way to much for a starter. Must be very detailed in ordering food othewise they will try to sell everything. Shrimp risoto is below average. Overall experience- would not recommend.More

Went with friends in August. Arrived at the restaurant for 1330 with just a few tables busy at that time. Took several minutes for someone to come and welcome us and show us to a table. It took 30mins for someone to come and take...our order… another 1h to get our starters (after asking where they actually were) which were fairly simple but amazingly poorly executed (cucumber salad was composed of very roughly cut slices of a cucumber thrown in a bowl with nothing else … no condiment, sauce, herbs of any kind) …. Our main dishes arrived another 1h later after again requesting them… was mixed … very good fish …. So so meat …. Grilled vegetables arrived raw …. We waited so much that we had 3 changes of waiters ! Overall not the nice, welcoming experience that we always have in Croatia !More

Perfect food, staff at the marina (not ACI but of the restaurant) and at the restaurant itself. Fish is Fresh and restaurant offers quite the variety of dishes. All of them really good. Even though restaurant is a bit pricey, the quality of Food location...and logistical services is just impecable and worth every penny.More

It is unacceptable that a non-existent amount of food is charged or that large amount of lobster and fish is added unnecessarily. Definitely way overpriced for the quality, but the main issue is that afterwards you feel cheated. If You go there, advice is not...to listen waiters' recommendation for the food and also to define exact quantities in advance. Never had experience like there in Festa that waiters' main goal is to make guests overpay. When ordering, the waiter did not want to bring us the menus and only after the third time asking, we received one menu for a group of 6 people. For start we orderd various appetizers, most of them were good, not the level expected based on the pricing, but we understand that infrastructure on this type od island is more demanding and this affects pricing. Pasta with shrimps was very good. The pasta with lobster was very bad and dry, we have never eaten worse. Complete waist of money. Not to mention that the quantity of lobster in pasta was huge, 2 kg of lobster in pasta for 4 persons. And all that after we had really big amount of cold and hot appetizers and said to the waiter that we wanted something light for the main course and he said that they will prepare pasta with a bit of lobster. Drinks were good. Bar is very nice and cosy. We don’t mind paying a higher price for high quality, but here that was not the case. It's a shame that they push guests to overpay unnecessarily, because we as a group od friends would have spent a lot anyway, and we would have left satisfied. Before coming, we were warned by several friend that in Festa they do business like this, so I believe that experience like our is common. And at the end, we were asked to pay cash. At the bar, not at our table.More

The food is overpriced for what you get. We didn't get menus and the waiter only offered lobsters several times, although we said that we wanted to try something else. The food quality is not as it should be for that price. Cake for dessert...was frozen in the middle, which is unacceptable for that type of restaurant. Although they claim to accept credit cards, we were asked to pay cash.More

This restaurant is on an almost uninhabited island, so the fact is serves gourmet food is astounding. We had crab risotto followed by sea bass, and both were delicious. The negative is the cost exceeds London prices, but this nonetheless, and unexpected gem of a...restaurant.More
