My family and I went to this restaurant with great expectations. First impressions were positive. The setting is great and unique. However, for the quality of food served it was highly overpriced. I could not swallow the fact that owner was not totally honest on the authenticity. For the starters, the ownership of this restaurant is from inland Croatia, not from local people. That is a big red flag for Croatia as inlanders do not know about fish. We ordered grilled "jastog" or lobster. We were not shown any live lobsters to choose from, nor were told about size and weight as advertised. The waiter just informed us that he ordered 3 half a kilo each, lobsters. That was the first red flag. Lobsters looked great when they arrived but they did not look like one pound or half a kilo each. They looked more like an over sized shrimp in the US. The service was slow and it was hard to get waiters' attention. The second big NO for Croatian grills is that restaurant is using charcoal, not wood. I have never seen even s=cheep restaurants use charcoal in Croatia. The grill is simply not as good. We drank house wine, Vugava, a native variety from Vis. This was good. The souses were all average and probably from the can. All in all this is a restaurant with a great location and rustic ambiance and setting and very average food. You can probably eat equal or better meal in other local restaurants for half the price. I would recommend to inquire about local fisherman owned restaurants. But if you do go here, ask to see the food you will be eating and ask about price. 750 kuna (100 EUR) or $125) per kilo of lobster is astronomical. You can get fresh Adriatic lobster at other places for under 600 kuna/kilo.
