“Excellent seafood and also hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Spent few days at Villa Kapetanovic, where restaurant Laurus is located at.
Very good seafood with the excellent service. Also the hotel is very cozy with the nice view to sea. Owner's hospitality and enthusiasm running this hotel and restautrant is remarkable.

“nice place with a fancy ambition”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

The food was good.
The place, i think, possitions itself as a top notch fancy restaurant and the waiters sure give you that feel.
As for me i like service to be more laid back and relaxed.

“Lobster in the neibhood?”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

I have to make confession! I needed trip advisor to discover this excellent restaurant just a few kilometres from my home!?
A beautiful terrace with astonishing view over the sea and islands of Cres and Krk warmly welcomes you.
I'm going to skip all introductory dishes and aperitifs and skip immediately to the lobster. Thanks to the aquarium with live sea animals you are able to choose a proper one and wait. After the long time of waiting finally it arrives. "King of cuisine" has been excellently prepared and when we fuse it with the vine which has been selected by the waiter the experience was complete.

“Yesterday night tried this place...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

.... and went for the 7 course dinning experience...Actually a tasting menu with seven different plates....
The terrace is elegant, romantic, a great view. The service was skillful and happy to explain the food we were tasting. The wine list good enough with a reasonable variety of great local wines.
The food was excellent, the combination of flavors a sounding success. In particular all the seafood plates were spectacular. The tuna and the seabass with pancetta and foie gras particularly good.
If you really want to enjoy the seven course tasting menu, you have to come hungry, because even in small portions, the total amount of food is pretty big.
Do not miss this place!!!!
