Good location for the bar, but the menu is limited. The selection of wines is poor. However, the most striking think was poor service, since the waiters seemed to be totally uncoordinated and after the first waiter seated us, the other came and told us to move to another area.

This has got to be one of the best places to hang out in Rab. The owners are very friendly ( their English is very good). We were there at Lunch and they only offer limited selection of light meals but the menu looks great for dinner. The owners are very knowledgeable about Croatian wines and the house wines are great value - they are passionate about their food and wine.

First of all, Kampanel is in a beautiful space right under the main bell tower. I forget its name, but you can climb up it. The courtyard is gorgeous, and furnished with perfect taste. The food we had on 13/09/11 was very nice too, and the tapas are both inexpensive and very tasty. For 256 KN (about £35) we had: little pork skewers, octopus salad, squid, local ham "prsut", fried potatoes, grilled vegetables, cheese, water, wine and coffee. The dainty dishes were all perfect. The problem is with the menu: it is very limited, and that is the reason we didn't go back. With regard to sea food, you are limited to prawns, octopus and squid, the latter 2 of which aren't to everyone's taste, and we overheard a party of Dutch people grumbling amongst themselves about the lack of choice.

They need to expand the mennu. If they do, it will be the loveliest eaterie in Rab Town.

My family has been visiting Rab for 15 years and we have stuck with the few restaurants we know for most of those years, because the risk of trying a new restaurant has rarely been rewarded and we like to spend our limited time in a place we like.

This year we tried Kampanel and really enjoyed the food, the wine and the atmosphere of the old city in Kampanel's fantastic out door garden right below the old church tower in the old city.

The tapas concept works great, and we ate a little of everything. It is nice to try and share multiple items and a great place for a light meal.
My personal favorite was the Octopus carpaccio which is not something I would normally try, but all agreed was great! It is served on arugula and had just the right touch of oil and lemon. We went back for it many times.

The house white wine was also great and inexpensive.

We visited the restaurant 3 times during our stay in Rab, in june. The food was good value and very tasty, we can especially recommend the cuttle fish risotto and the tuna bruschetta. The hosts Toni and Rommana were lovely people.
