Visited restaurant at lunch time, so there were just 2 tables taken. Waiter was super friendly and super helpful and accommodating. Still we had to wait for every step of restaurant experience :) (being served a menu, drink, food, bill, pay). I'd imagine it should get worst with restaurant full in the evening. Besides that portions were very big. We've... More

Quite a nice restaurant, but not better than others in the area, less expensive. The service could be more customer friendly.

My boyfriend and I found this restaurant on trip advisor before we went to Podstrada and were keen to visit, much to our delight when we arrived at our accommodation in Podstrada the restaurant was across the room, perfect! On our first visit we went with family as a party of 4. We managed to make a reservation very easily... More

I went to restaurant Arkada on my first night in Croatia, and I have to say the initial walk I was sceptical! We had to walk up a flight of stairs that made me a little un-easy, however when I arrived I have to say the place is beautiful, you can see the food being prepared and cooked right in... More

Visited here with high expectations after seeing positive reviews on Tripadvisor. We went on a Friday night and were seated indoors as outdoors was very busy, another good sign. Ordered our drinks and food after about a ten minute wait and was a little disappointed that we were told we couldn't have cocktails despite these being advertised and someone on... More

Over one week eating in Podstrana this was the highlight. It is worth seeking it out. The menu offers everything from budget to fine cuisine and everything in between. From our arrival we felt very important, these are properly trained (and polite) staff. Our waiter was funny and we share a joke as we took our time ordering. The meal... More

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay in Podstrana as it was by far the best restaurant that we found. Food was very good with good customer service and though not the cheapest restaurant in the area, we thought it represented good value. This restaurant is popular with both locals and tourists, so it's advisable to book ahead if... More

We visited the restaurant on our penultimate evening. The service was great and a food was very nice! My husband said that his stake was the best he ever had! I had the grilled calamari, and I enjoyed every bit of it! For dessert we recommend the chocolate soufflé, it's out of this world!

Really slow service but food ok. Had to even leave without extra drinks, even enough water or dessert. If you want good experience/food choose Nikola in Stobrec instead.
