“Average Food and Appalling Service”
Reviewed June 13, 2012

While enjoying a week at the Meridien hotel we decided to eat at this restaurant. What a mistake ! They were not busy, but managed to achieve the slowest, apathetic service we have ever had the misfortune to receive. They were dancing attendance on a table of 6 and almost ignored anyone else who had the misfortune to be sitting in their restaurant. We were served a drink and then waited and waited for a menu, we had to call someone to bring it. We ordered and waited a very long time for it to come. It really wasn't worth waiting for. After the main course we waited for well over 40 minutes for someone to clear our plates and offer us desserts. Again we had to call them, as they were still dancing attendance on the favoured 6 people. While we were eating, they decided this was a good time to unload a delivery from a vehicle and right past our table - 10.15 p.m. The waiters were hauling plastic sacks past us, which was really annoying, as if we were invisible or totally unimportant. However, this turned out to be pretty amusing when one of them dropped a sack and the contents spilled onto the floor - a pile of frozen shrink wrapped fish - this is a restaurant that brags about it's freshly caught fish !!! Obviously freshly caught from the freezer !

“Excellent recommendations from the waiter”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

Very helpful staff and great quality food and wine. We decided to try one of the fish of the day with the wine recommended by our waiter, both of which were excellent - would definitely recommend a visit

“Nice experience - but out of town”
Reviewed March 8, 2012

I visited this restaurant with my family for Sunday lunch. Restaruant is situated in marina of Le Meridien hotel - in Podstrana , 10 minutes drive from Split . Nice ambient, large terrace 5 m from sea side, you can have your meal with view to large yachts berthed at marina. Menu is extensive, kid menu also available. Food is not spectacular but good, can not complain on anything. Staff is very polite and helpfull, especially with wine selection. Definitely not one of those " do not miss" places but if you are in the area , you will not regret it.
