Description: A unique restaurant beneath the grand arcades and perhaps one of the Opatija’s best kept secrets. Crossing from the old to the new, a historic building transformed into a modern day dining experience. The location and serene ambience invites you to leave your worries at the door and enjoy our culinary delights. Friendly atmosphere and prices that represent great value for our guests provide an upscale casual dining experience . Our professional approach coupled with superior quality food offerings and service, has proven to be highly successful. At Sveti Jakov, our menu is focused on good and simple Mediterranean cuisine, such as grilled fresh fish, grilled steak, fish soup and homemade pasta with a commitment using local and susainable foods. Restaurant has been serving prosciutto of the highest quality, a large collection of cheese, freshly baked bread, handmade pasta and daily fresh fish.

Nice place with italian touch. Located in a nice place but a bit boring atmosphere. Quality is fine.

Set close to an old church in pretty gardens, you can eat either outside under Romanesque arches or inside too.
Our waitress spoke excellent English and was really knowledgeable on the Croatian food and wine she served and was happy to suggest option choices. The service was excellent, she was always around if required, but did not bother you with the usual restaurant platitudes you get at home.
A first rate eating experience and you Croatian Kuna goes further than your Italian Euro does.
