My girlfriend and I visited Divinio tonight. Even though they did not have it on the menu, we asked for Tuna steak. The waitress checked with the kitchen and confirmed they had it. We explicitly asked for the tuna steak, and not fillet as mentioned...on the menu - simple sear on the outside and juicy. We had a few cocktails, cozy environment, great starters and friendly staff. The waitress really did a good job, helpful and smiling. The price was in the high end for the area, but the restaurant was fine dining concept, which is then to be expected. After the starters, the main course was served. However, to our dissapointment we received a well done "Tuna Steak". We had it brought back and they did come with a fine replacement. Seared. Not juicy however, and the cut was quite thick (~10 cm) and did not look, feel or taste like a Tuna Steak cut. Tasteless and boring. I had the monkfish, which was okay, but suppar to the price of the dish. Too spiced to really taste the fish or mussels. Sidedish was steamed vegetables, which consisted of carrot, cucumber and another root, oversteamed and tasteless. Basically everything was fine, expect the main course, as we felt that the quality did not close to match the price of it. We have tried several restaurants around the place. Pretty restaurant, nice service, cozy, everything 5 star, but the lack of quality dragged it down, and was a bit of a mood killer.More

The restaurant is right by the water and located in the center of town. The seafood is really good and nicely combined with other local products.

Huge problems with the service and the way of speaker to customers. Indeed, after asking for information concerning the bill and a something more to pay, my sister and I were totally denigrated by the owner who allowed to say to us "here is a...good restaurant, if you want to eat there are pizzas or pasta there" as well as "do you usually go to good restaurants?". So we tried to justify ourselves in English, as best we could to make, to make her understand that we were asking a simple question but she didn't want to know anything, her goal being to belittle us. So for a simple question concerning two dishes not ordered and invoiced, we find ourselves in a position of inferiority and belittling in front of the boss and her contemptuous and haughty expression. I will therefore absolutely not recommend this restaurant which for me sees itself as reserved for an elitist population and ready to pay for dishes not ordered which seem to be offered.More

We’ve been here last year and were overall pleased with the service as well as the kitchen. Sadly they must have changed their chef because our visit this year could’t hold up with our last one. The food was good but definitely not special. I’ve...ordered a beefsteak without truffle sauce. After waiting for 30-40 minutes it came with sauce, which for this pricing, really bothered me. I chose not to say anything and still ate it. The side dishes were very small. During both visits our order was taken by the owner which probably doesn’t really speak german or italian too well, because something went wrong both times.More

We had a lovely dinner and enjoyed the view. Scollaps and the sea bass were a really good choice + the croatian wine "Radovan" is also worth mentioning. We usually eat seafood wherever we can and we agreed that this is one of our favourite...3 places - we will definitely come back!More
