“Not so good service, mediocre food”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

4 of us went there for my parents' 43rd wedding anniversary. We are local people from Kastav, and although there are many fine restaurants around, we chose Vidikovac cause of great view (it was a beautiful, sunny, warm winter Saturday) and low prices.
The waitress didn't write down our order since she claimed she'll remember everything. Well, turns out she didn't, since we got wrong salads, which she tried to explain by totally unbeleivable explanation. Also, rumpsteak was very chewy and not juicy enough. Mixed meat was too dry and some pieces were overdone. Potatoes as a side dish were too salty (my mum has a high blood pressure and turned it down outright). On the other hand, crusty chicken fillet, minced meat filled with cheese and crispy grilled onion rings and also, wine (Istrian Teran) were great. We really enjoyed the view. But in the end, somewhat bad feeling from inadequate service and food stuck.

“Great service with excelent view...”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

Restaurant is on a great spot with marvelous view on Kvarner, all the way to Krcki most. Service is very nice, we joked with the waiter and felt very comfortable... On menu there are some very nice dishes, although a bit overcooked ours very very tastefull. Prices are very fair considering the location. The restaurant itself is very nice with some great details.
