We were enticed into this pretty restaurant, by the veranda overlooking the bay.
The staff were relaxed and served us at a leisurely pace (we waited 25 minutes for the bill, despite asking several times), but if you're out for a slow dinner, then this is the place.
We ate the Dalmatinski ham to start, which was very tasty- then the mixed grill and risotto for the main courses. The mixed grill came with an assortment of grey, over-cooked meat, swimming in grease, whilst the risotto was average. The best thing about this restaurant, aside from the location, is the house red wine, which was the best we'd tried in the area.
To conclude, this is a fine restaurant for basic holiday food, but if you were looking for a culinary delight, look elsewhere.

This was right next to our hotel, had lovely tables on the veranda and the food was never disappointing. Wine was good too. The lamb I had was tender and juicy, we went twice to this restaurant and enjoyed both times.

The restaurant has a lovely terrace, and is really well maintained - the view is through trees and into the Amfora Hotel - an amphitheatre of kitsch, that might entertain when there is summer activity but less so in May.

The owner was a lovely, genuine, and generous man and just for that we would love to say that the food was great - but it wasn't. He and his father made their own olive oil and wine and grappa, and it was shared freely if so desired (well, not the wine!). As we were one of only three tables dining, the service was good.

The grilled lamb passed, but the rest of the meals (including pizzas) were not finished. We were disappointed, both for ourselves because we didn't enjoy it, but also for the owner who was so sincere about his restaurant.

We have suggested 'not there yet' because with this sort of passion he deserves to be one day.
