One of our best meals in Croatia!
Great seafood, lovely service and good atmosphere! That is what you get in Na Kantunu. From the outside and its location you would not guess what your experience would be in the restaurant.
We ordered a fish soup, a wild green asparagus soup (season) and what our waiter recommended in terms of fresh fish and its preparation, and it was an abosolutely worth culinary experience.
We would recommend this restaurant if you are visting Rijeka around lunch time or even as a planned stop, you will not regret it.

We really enjoyed the red scorpion fish and calamari. The Croatian white wine recommended by the owner was also very nice. The weather was cold, but the atmosphere inside was cozy. We understand that the proprietor's father is the fisherman who supplies the place so the fish is always fresh!

It's a rather small restaurant, but you can also have a table outside, right beside the small boat port, which is great if it is a sunny day.
There's a daily choice of fresh fish straight from the city fish market (in close vicinity) and they prepare it masterfully, so whatever you happen to choose from the menu - it will surely be to your palate satisfaction!
It tends to be a bit crowdy on Fridays during lunchtime, so take this into account or book your table in advance.

Last time it was a quick brunch, tasty cod stew with a glass of good wine.
This buffet-restaurant offers variety of seafood meals customized to daily supply of fish at the fish market, for brunch as well as for lunch or dinner.
Wine selection is wide and prices are moderate.
The interior is tastefully decorated.
The staff is friendly and attentive.

This was our first veritable sea food specific restaurant in Croatia. We heard Rijeka has a rich fishing history and industry, so we definitely wanted to try out the local cuisine.

We checked on tripadvisor, and got right to this restaurant.
The waitress showed us what's fresh, and this red sea scorpion with big scary teeth caught our appetite immediately. It was absolutely delicious.

I highly recommend this restaurant. The food is fresh and awesome, the staff are nice, funny and english speakers.
