To be honest, I don't know where to start wit compliments.
Well, introduction at the entrance was performed by one classy young woman, with a respectfull foreign languages level.
Waiter was there all the time for us with a smile and knowledge about wines, and if I may add, his sugestion was perfect.
On our first night there I've ordered T-bone steak, and it was great.
Since we've been located close, I've came back next morning just to have a coffe and right then I was pleasantly surprised. I've been treated with same respect regardless of money spent, regardless of order...
Strong recomendation, and a promise: I will return next summer, if not earlier, and I will enjoy there again

Entree was good - salmon bruschetta. The main took a while and we had to chase the waiters a few times to get drinks and refills. Main meals were OK but weren't 'value for money'. Sides were small and cold, so you definitely have to order a side to fill you up. They also charge for table setting which is ridiculous as no other restaurant in the city does it - table setting (knifes, forks, etc. should be standard). It's known that restaurants in Croatia pump up their prices during the tourist season but ideally you want to leave as a happy customer. Unfortunately, we didn't feel we got "value for money", the service was average and slow. Will not go back to it.

Respected Guest,

So sorry to see that you perceived the ‘’value for money’’ in our restaurant as bad, but even more sorry that that is your perception of the entire hard working population of restaurant employees and owners in the entire Croatia which is, being in tourism for a very long time, an unfair assumption.

I have investigated this issue with our staff to see if there were any complaints from our domestic guests that were not solved on spot, but have found none.
Before entering the restaurant, there is a full menu at the entrance which our guests are able to read and decide if they want to have dinner here or no – the same opportunity was there for you as well. On the same menu it is written under every dish what it comes with – some of our dishes do come with a side, and some do not. This in particular is for the food from our opened lava grill where our chef prepares the meat in front of the guests, while the sides are prepared in our indoor kitchen.

Our mains are starting from 7-8 EUR for a nice fresh pasta, risotto or chicken, to 16 EUR beef tenderloin or a rib eye, and to a more expensive rare meats in Croatia such as Black Angus steaks, prime ribs, frenched lamb chops or Simmental T-bone steak. We did work on the variety of choices and prices, but also to offer internationally recognized meats for steak lovers.
As for your part of a review that our mains are not enough to fill you up, I must say that all of our steaks are 300 g. in portion (except the ‘’lady’’ tenderloin cut of 200 g., clearly explained in the menu or the large 500 g. steaks that we recommend sharing) and the majority of our guests found our portions more than enough.
And last, but not the least, we do not have hidden costs – simple as that. Even the ‘’couvert’’ charge is not a hidden cost – it is clear on the menu at the entrances as well as the one handed to you once in the restaurant. The ‘’hidden’’ cost that maybe draw you to write this unfair grade is the clearly stated couvert that costs 0.5 EUR (4 kn) per adult and it is not for the knifes and forks – it is for the free home baked bread refills, home-made olive oil, butter, pate and any other requested cold sauces.
For all the hard work put here, the quality of food presented to our guests, customer care on spot and numerous happy and many times returning customers, I am very sorry that we did not meet your expectations. Feel free to contact me directly at info@chops-grill.com if you wish to give our restaurant another chance.

Best regards

The food was divine, the the prosciutto was delightful, the meat in the main course was succulent and the vegetables were incredible. The red wine was magnificent as was the beer. The waiters were very accomodating and always checked to ensure we had a drink. The restaruant does get busy but it is worth the wait. I will be going back

When we (a group of four) arrived at Chops Grill we were greeted by a nice and eloquent young woman who informed us that there aren't any dinner tables available for us at this moment and if we like, that we can take a seat in their Caffe bar Paradiso until first table clears.
We took a seat and ordered some cocktails and after just few minutes she came to us with the beautiful smile and with good news that a table just cleared and that the drinks are on the house because we've waited.
After seating I ordered black angus ribeye and other ordered steaks and fish as their main courses.
Before that we had some shrimp pate and bruschetta and some great red wine.
The dinner ended with great chocolate soufflé and pancakes and after all I can say that all courses were excellent, and the service was great although the place was packed.
Next time we will definitely reserve a table and come back again and again.
Waiter was very friendly and came to check if everything is in order after every course, and even once in between to check if we have enough to drink and brought us some fresh ice which we all think was very nice of him.
After all said and done, the least I can do is recommend it as a great place to eat and will most definitely come again.

We just visited the restaurant and it was just perfect! i had the black angus ribeye and my wife the grilled salmon! Both dishes were perfect and we would certainly recommend this place again! Only minor point was that it took a little while before we got our food.
