Description: Restaurant Ribarska Koliba (Fisherman's Hut) - the Sleeping Beauty has awaken after a hundred year's sleep and has become a favourite destination for lovers of gastronomy and fine wines. Surrounded by pine woods on one side and the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic from the other, Ribarska Koliba is something of a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. The roof of the restaurant has been transformed into a Lounge Bar with magnificent views of the marina and Verudela Bay. During the day it's a great spot to relax in the gentle breeze enjoying the calm surroundings and atmosphere. In the evening it's a place to gather with friends, sample the wonderful choice of cocktails, enjoy live music and so much more.

“Lovely meal in a lovely restaurant !!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Our hotel recommended this restaurant and we were delighted with it. Food was lovely, service good and very good value for money. The standard of food was high, don't know what other reviewers are comparing to but for £60, we had 2 gin and tonics, 2 starters, 2 main courses and a bottle of wine.....I'd say excellent !!! Definitely go and enjoy.

“Nice view, everything else average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

I believe this primarily is a restaurant for people with deep pockets, and you better look like one in order to get some service above minimum. The view from the restaurant is beautiful if you get a table by the window, but the place is quite noisy. My girlfriend and I didn't put on our finest clothes and jewellery so we didn't get the same service and attention as the rich russians who sat at the tables besides us (for instance: one waiter took our pepper grinder and gave it to someone else while we were eating). We waited over an hour for the food (while others who ordered after us got the food way faster). We ordered a fish plate for two, and the food was at its best average. I won't go there again, but we might have been unlucky.
