“good food, mass tourism, very good for families with children...”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Do not get fooled by this place. It is a fast SEAfood. Masses of people come here, bikers, people from the nereby resprts.... The food is no haute cuisine, but is always fresh, probably ddue to the high turnover. The ambient is so so, the waiters are nice and they gave complete understendaing for the families. So, very good for families with children if you wish to have some quality food for reasonable prices, but nothing more.

“Best meal during our stay in Istria.”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

So glad my husband decided on this restaurant for our final night in Croatia. Attentive and friendly staff, huge meals, platters that other diners had also looked wonderful. Good atmosphere. Busy in the evenings so if traveling in the high season you may want to book ahead for a table. Happy to recommend.

“best fish platter ever!”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

we came upon this restaaurant while exploring this beautiful part of Istria on bicycle.It was quiet as it was early in the season but I would imagine the restaurant is very busy later in the season.Apparently they have live music and dancing in the evenings.The staff were all very attentive and pleasant and we took the suggestion of the waiter and ordered the fish platter which was fantastic.The fish must come straight from the fishing boats that dock just outside and then is cooked over charcoal.It was all absolutely delicious.I cannot recommend it highly enough.
