“good, quick food”
Reviewed July 23, 2013

We ate in the self-serve part of the restaurant for lucy during our walk around the lakes. The minus was, that none of the meal we wanted (which were stated on the menu) were available, so we had to choose something else. But the meal we get instead, was good and cheap.

“Like a bad canteen from the 70's.”
Reviewed July 11, 2013

Readers. Please do not eat here. Buy some nuts and some fruit and sit out in nature. Do not put your body through having to eat here.

It's a frozen-vegetables-boiled-to-death with soggy-oily-chips and a bit of lettuce affair.

If you have a car, drive FAR AWAY!!! (unfortunately we didn't and had to suffer through this meal...our bodies have only just forgiven us).

Really Mr Manager - you are in such a prime location! Come into the future! Serve amazing fresh food that matches the environment you're in!!

“Objective View of a Wordwide Traveller”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

1. We arrived arround 13:00 to have something to eat in the restaurant which was nearest to the entrance of Plitvice National Park. A guy at the entrance didn't let us come in... We asked for the restaurant and he said in a bad english: "there is no more restaurant here..." We were a bit surprised, with my friend, but for our second day in Croatia, we had already understood that some establishments were abandoned, somehow by their owners... Pretty strange... Anyway we had to go back and try to find another restaurant. We asked to some other person in an other parking about the Poljana restaurant and he indicated exactly where we came from. We went back to the same place, and asked for Poljana restaurant. The guy let us enter, finally.

When we arrived in the restaurant, on a sunny tuesday of june, it was literally empty, and a bit sad... We came in and tried to go to the restaurant part, which was really empty, around 13h30. At that moment some waitress who looked pissed off asked us what we were doing here. We asked for the restaurant, she looked at us and said, sorry only with 1 hour anticipated reservation. So we went to the self service.

The food was ok, overall, not incredible but not bad. However the service is so poor, that I would definitely recommend any traveler to croatia, to always prepare their meal before going to Plitvice National Park, or just head up for a Sandwich.

I took a Goulash with rice, it was ok but really to salty... My friend took some potatoes, chicken and salad... She didn't really like it.

“Poljana is good food for less money!”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

The self-service part is very good, and prices are low. Like 4 euros for a maincourse. The menu is big, so there will be something for everybody. The terrasse is nice, and has a good view.

“Very good food”
Reviewed May 29, 2013

We ate in the full service restaurant, and the food was very good. Some of the local dishes were excellent, and at a very reasonable price. This is the best place to eat at the second entrance to Plitvice National Park.
