“Rating increased because of the location”
Reviewed November 11, 2013

This restaurant has an inside area and a walled patio garden, being situated in a narrow street at the old town area.
The service was efficient, fast but unhurried even though there was only one waiter working the area.
Its main point is that it is located away from the main tourist area where there is a row of restaurants on the ocean walkway. For that reason, Kamerlengo is more expensive for lunch that it would be in one of those large, noisy restaurants.
Our lunch consisted of two main entrées, a large bottle of water, couvert and tip (10%) coming to a total of 350 kunas, or approximately $70.00 for two, or $35.00 per person, which is a bit more than one normally pays for lunch.
We savoured the beef strogonoff made in the traditional way with pickles, accompanied by rice and a small salad. It was not spetacular, but it was not flawed either.
This restaurant is recommended because of its ambiance, service and acceptable cuisine.

“Good but could of been better.”
Reviewed November 5, 2013

Their best is off the grill, mainly fish which is not cheap. Which my husband said was good but not fantastic. I had pasta that was good but not great. We loved the grilled bread with garlic. There was lots of ambiance but the service could of been a little more attentive but that is Croatia for you.

“Great for Fish”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Very nice restaurant recommended by our hotel down a side street not too far from the waterfront. Plenty of outdoor seating & a varied seafood menu. As with all such places a little care need to ensure that prices stay reasonable when ordering fish by weight
Staff friendly & helpful, gets busy so a reservation probably wise

“Great fish, great service and a funny charcoal grill chef”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

The wonderful UNESCO small island town of Trogir in Croatia has an abundance of restaurants. Many if not all of them serve fresh fish from the Adriatic. One of, in my opinion, best fish restaurants is Kamerlengo, they do also have meat dishes. I've now been their twice this year and will go again next year. They have, of course, wonderfully fresh fish. My favourite is the grilled squid. My first time the Chef asked me if I liked garlic, what a question. If you say yes the fish or squid is topped with a sauce of olive oil, fresh chopped garlic and parsely. The middle of the restaurant has a very large pizza style oven which is a hugh charcoal grill. The fish comes from the kitchen to the grill Chef and you can watch your meal being cooked. I'd advise people to stay with fish or grilled meat. During my last visit four Americans sat on a table behind me maybe they'd had fish up-to-their-ears on their cruise ship? But, remember we are in Croatia, one of them orders Vienna Schnitzel!!! Looked terrible and probably tasted dreadful. To Angela Scholz, the regional side vegetable dish you had was Swiss Chard and potatoes not spinach. To Kasia K why on earth did you have squid in batter those terrible 'Squid Rings' can be had in almost any European restaurant, Italian, Chinese etc. etc. usually all bad.

“Great seafood restaurant”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

Great seafood restaurant; scenic setting in an old ruin. From the "fresh tray" I chose a red fish scarpa (see photo). The waiter tried to talk me out of it (I do not know why: too big, too expensive?) but in the end it was not that big and worth the cost.
