This restaurant cannot be beaten for location and views of Makarska Riviera. Served by attentive lovely waiters who were very knowledgeable about every dish, we had a wonderful evening. The chef is clearly very imaginative and talented. Every mouthful had flavour and surprise. If looking...for a setting that is matched by stunning food, this has to be it.More

Really special place with extraordinary view. Excellent food, however served too fast (we were done in this slow food restaurant in 90 minutes). Wines could be better choose and should have more dalmatian offer. Atmosphere was a bit sterile

Had an amazing time at Jeny. The owner of the restaurant personally greeted us and explained each meal and wine pairing to us. You can tell his passion has gone into the restaurant in every little detail. The music, the location, the food and the...wine were all just phenomenal. So much time and care had gone into every aspect of the evening. This is definitely a must see when you come to the Dalmatian coast! I've never had an experience quite like this and it definitely made our trip special. I want to return to Croatia for this restaurant alone. Spectacular, truly!More

Wonderful experience. A must try if you are a food lover and vacationing in the area. The food is really really nice, beautiful to look at as well as delicate to eat. The paring with local wines works well. Service is great and everything explained...in perfect English. View of cause also fantastic. The restaurant helped us arrange for a taxi from Baska Voda. Highly recommended!More

My Fiancé arranged a tasting menu here for my birthday. From the very beginning we experienced exemplary service, a welcoming atmosphere and the fantastic backdrop of the Adriatic as part of this culinary experience. Its manager Milenko deserves a particular mention for his conviviality and...description of each course in perfect English. The restaurant really pays tribute to its location by utilising fantastic, Dalmatian ingredients paired with punchy Croatian wines. A dish with a particular mention is the quail; the course starts with an aromatic and sumptuous consommé, which I could have very easily gulped down copious amounts of. Just as we’d polished off the last drop, the bird itself arrived. It was completely deboned with the exception of each shank, the skin was perfectly rendered of fat and a deep brown in colour. There were two sauces; a kohlrabi purée and one that I cannot quite recall, however they both paired fantastically with it. The texture was exactly how it should be with fowl cooked to perfection, succulent and without a hint of dryness. The taste was rich and earthy, I savoured every mouthful. Although already mentioned briefly, the wine paired with each course was meticulously selected and enhanced the experience immeasurably. I particularly like the Dalmatian red we had with the beef course. Overall I would highly recommend this restaurant and could not think of anywhere I’d rather eat on my birthday.More

Thank you for a heavenly evening at Restaurant Jeny! We truly enjoyed the food, the view, the service and your wonderful tour of Croatian wine. It was quite an adventure to try such a broad range of Croatian quality wines. Croatian wine can be quite...a jungle for people not familiar with the local options, so it was fantastic to get an introduction from someone who knows so much about the local gems.More

Jeny was an absolute culinary delight. Located high on a Croatian mountainside, the tasting menu was equally delightful as the view. The čović brothers have created a relaxed and refined atmosphere with every dish unique. Every dish was paired with a Croatian wine, allowing us...to be fully immersed in the locale. The amount of thought and skill put into every dish was amazing, and no doubt this Michelin reviewed restaurant certainly deserves it’s first star. Highlights of our meal were the stuffed quail a la Saltimbocca with black truffle and the Gurnard and Scallop dish. If you are anywhere near the Makarska/Tuscepi region, or just in Croatia at all, Jeny is a MUST. I can’t wait to be back next season!More

The food was good, the view awesome. But when you are asked to pay in cash, for dinner and wine menu, and all you have to rely on is the price on the website. And then at the end you get the check for a...different amount, and also have to pay for overpriced water and coffee, so you suddenly start to stress about not having enough cash available..More

Having had the privilege to visit this restaurant a number of times over the years, the whole Team never cease to impress with their welcome and amazing food dishes that have the most important factor - taste! The presentation is true artistry equalled by the...very clever matching of wines. I repeat from and earlier review, if you have never experienced so called fine dining the this is an opportunity to have that experience without any 'pomp' in a calm and friendly atmosphere. Save up and spoil yourselves like us and guaranteed, you will not be disappointed.More

We read about the restaurant and were really excited to go there (two families with children 14-17). We were completely blown away!! The environment was breathtaking, the service was professional but yet personal. The food was by far the best I have ever eaten and...both families agreed that this was a foodexperience we will cary with us for a very long timeMore

Great restaurant Beautiful food and relaxed atmosphere Very steep access down from the road so be mindful in heels! Catered to allergies Picked up from our hotel and return journey for an extra fee Beautiful views Good service but this lacked towards the end as...though some staff had gone home, and they became less attentive. We had tea and an after-dinner drink and would have gladly had another round but this wasn’t offered unfortunately and we waited a while with empty glasses so got the bill and left We would come back to Makarska just for this restaurant!More

Me and my girlfriend visited Jeny after reading about it online and hearing about it from other tourists. Excellent food, wine and service. Will come back if traveling to the Croatian riviera again. Worth every kuna spent.
