After reading the excellent reviews we were looking forward to an evening at this restaurant. There were 6 of us in our party. Across the board it was average: service, food and ambiance . Above average price for Gradac but as expected.

The Nicolo Polo Restaurant is one of the oldest still operating restaurants in Gradac. It entered the Polo family in 1988 but was known as " Bartuls place" before that. Has since it opened been known as one of the best places in the whole region to dine in, famous for its fresh ingredients, sometimes taken directly from the sea, and continously changing menu.
Our cuisine is mainly sticking to the motto "to sell a domestic experience" and focus therefore mostly on Dalmatian-Mediterranean Cuisine. However, for those guests that feel more comfortable with an International and trendy offer our menu wont lack that either. As the owner was born and raised in Sweden and his family Restaurant tradition goes back to the 60ies in Sweden, as being one of the first Restaurateurs from Croatia, a small touch of Scandinavia can be felt in the food too.

Anyhow, Croatia is not only Dalmatia (The Mediteranian). Croatias gastronomy is reflected from a long seize of many neighboring countries, such as the Ottomans(Turky), the Habsburg (Hungary, Austria), Venize and Rome (Italy), Napoleon (France) and more that can be felt in other areas of Croatia and Herzegovina.
Also, as Marco Polo was an explorer and gourmand, here and there even a trace of Asian flavors can be felt in some of our specialties - areas he explored.

When traveling to new places and food cultures, people want to explore new tastes and hopefully choose the best quality. We wish to be your ambassador of a great gastronomy experience - this include interesting and changing menus for the best quality in our house, organizing wine and gastro tours, organizing evenings where we take you to old taverns hard to find....
