Last time I visited this restaurant was some 10 years ago. It stuck in my memory as the place with great sea food and interesting location by the sea. Ten years after (without Alvin Lee), I find it almost unchanged, with lots of familiar faces waiting tables and some familiar faces dining there. The food is still great, service is... More

People always rave about this place, but I cannot figure why. Yes it sits right on the water, but the place looks like the time stopped in the 80s. Food is overpriced, service is mediocre and please do something about your restrooms. Very disappointed.

The restaurant is situated right by the water with a stunning view. Lots of seafood. Good food but not outstanding. Reasonable prices.

This restaurant was so good we went back a second time. The staff are very welcoming, friendly and extremely efficient. They placed us right on the waters edge, a delightful spot, and helped us with our orders. The trio of fish entre was excellent and included anchovies(not too strong) octopus and grilled prawns. We also enjoyed the fish platter which... More

Family owned, wonderful people with a great passion for their food.....their fish is fresh, and I mean fresh. If you want to taste simple local produce go and visit them. Simple well cooked delicate, well presented food. Taste it for yourself.

This place was recommended by the owner of Valle Losca restaurant. We walked along the coast from Opatija (about 4 miles) for lunch, and had the scampi in a tomato-based sauce - it was really excellent, and we happily mopped up the sauce with our bread. There was a good range of other fresh fish on offer. We ate on... More

We had a business dinner at Najade, and everything was well prepared and organized. Welcome drink, beautifull server tables. Fish was really good, unfortunatelly it cant be said for rissotto with prawns. In such a restaurant prawns in rissotto should be fresh, not from frozen bags. Stuff could be more cooperative , not that you often have to seek them.

We've been many a time to Najade, to Mate, the owner, and the fish was always FRESH and tasty. Excellent. Dishes are simple, no nouvelle cuisine, no hoshy-poshy, just as it should be. In wintertime, a cosy interieur, in summer time one of the best views on the Kvarner Bay, tables above the sea. Unforgettable. I always invite my European... More

Seafood is perfect, other food is prepared on old way with lot of cooked oil. The pasta with shrimps was terrible, on the pasta was put some oil, smelly on meet. The natural meet was also prepared with some not good smelt oil.
