This year we were on a tour of Croatia with our yacht and also landed on the island of Zut, We found the Festa Restaurant where the wine list reaches up to 3000€ per bottle. Great location. Good furnishing. The washrooms are stunning. Really outstanding...for a restaurant on such a remote island. In short: This shop is promising! When making our reservation we were asked to submit our orders in advance. So we did and an "OK" came back. From then on it went downhill! - The Table, despite reservation not set. The Table we got was at the very end, just before the dump. - The place was freezing and full in the wind and at the same time there's an awful lot of empty tables. From the rain gutter it drips onto the table. - Our Order has been lost despite confirmation. - Red wine we ordered was not available. Instead we got a White Wine for. 80 EUR per Bottle. - Steak was like the sole of a shoe! - Waiters pushing kids out of the way. Hailing complaints. None of the guests around us are satisfied despite the holiday mood. The funniest thing was that our daughter thought when a drop from the rain gutter hit her, one of the geckos from the quarry stone wall was peeing on her. Finally, the card reader didn't work, even though we previously had asked for it. Somebody's doing a lot of things right in this Restaurant. But in the end, unfortunately, it does not reach the guest. That's just too bad.More

When you value you customers, you follow rules which keep them safe. Did any waiter in this place wear a mask? No. One waiter had his tied to his apron. Distancing with table placing? No. Then there is the food or in our case lacks...thereof. 25 minutes after they delivered my wife’s main, they told us mine would be 2 more minutes. We cancelled the fish and were promptly presented with a bill with it on it. When we told them to take off something they never delivered, it was like they did us a favour. As we were seated at the entrance we got to see a procession of people who had booked in advance for a certain table but it wasn’t available. They clearly know most people will never be backMore

The place is lovely and the food was excellent and in large quantity. The service and staff was also very pleasant. So this would normally deserve a 5 stars. It was just extremely expensive. Maybe the price includes free of charge moorings of the boat?...Our boat was not moored at this place so that may explain our reactionMore

This was our third visit to the restaurant Fešta in the last few years and every time again we are thrilled with this place, not only the restaurant and the food but the whole place in general. Year after year you can see improvement in...every part of this small tourist/marina resort. You can see a great enthusiasm and a great effort that Mr. Krešimir and his family put in. The food is excellent, the staff is very helpful and friendly, and service is at a very high level. Thanks to luxury tents (glamping) that Krešimir set up last year, Fešta is perfect not only for short lunch or dinner but also for a stay of several days. I'm sure we'll come back again next year.More

What a great place! We arrived by boat and stayed with the family in two tents. It’s glamping! The tents are in between the olive trees and has a great deck with deckchairs an in the tent us a comfy bed and all is nicely...decorated. The showers and bathrooms are in a separate building and are beautifully designed. The restaurant is great but not cheap: fresh fish all over. The breakfast plate was one to remember: a big sharing plate with stunning food like an asparagus omelet and an egg with octopus. Don’t forget to order a freshly made juice. The staff was super nice, especially Mia who helped getting my daughters shoes back swiftly. You Must visit festa!More

We’ve been to Festa several times this summer. The food is just amazing, each dish tingles your senses in amazing ways and all you can do is ask for more! The aqua park is something to recommend, it was quite fun for us adults who...behaved like children. :) The toilets (as unusual to speak of as it is- BUT I SIMPLY HAVE TO!) are stunning, I promise, I’ve never ever seen anything like it. Respect. The staff is professional and polite, they will always recommend something and if you take their advice you won’t regret it. For the free mooring, sailor service, the high-end gastronomy, professional staff and the least but not the last- the paradise like location, the prices are really low (which was super good for us ;) ). Next year when we come we are sure to book a tent in your Gastro glamping resort- my friends told me they had quite unique and perfect experience. Wish to thank all of you at Festa, you are our No 1 in the Adriatic. Thank you!!More
