Situated in the fisherman harbour. Definitely the best seafood in town. Get the sardines - they're awesome!

“Local restaurant for local people (and smart tourists)”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

I have been in this restaurant 2 times, the menu is various and everything is special. Not a luxury place, it's crowded by local people, and some (smart) tourists. Fish is special, fresh and tasty, the price really honest. I will come back for sure.

“Best grilled squid!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

This restaurant is a tiny spot on the dock at the end of the Marina in Umag. Don't confuse it with Restoran Lido. Lido is far fancier and more expensive.

Lado is a very casual, local place. When we arrived, the waitress said "We don't have much today. Bad day for fishing." That's the mark of an excellent, fresh seafood restaurant. Nearly all of the seating is outside, and there's a great view of the sunset if you go in the evening.

My friend and I split a small pitcher of the house white wine (delicious), some bread/olive oil, and a plate of grilled squid. The grilled squid was incredibly fresh, simply prepared, and tasted amazing. The meal cost 88HRK (including wine). Can't beat that! We liked it so much, that we returned the following day for the exact same meal.

Not to be missed... the olive oil was the best I've had in the entire country, and that's saying something. I liked it so much that I returned the following day to purchase two liters to take home with me.

If I return to Umag, I'll go back here, for sure!

“Great place to go”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

Lovely cosy restaurant located in Umag.
The menu is more than fine dining and as you would expect of the very best of locally sourced produce.
Seafood was delicate & tasty, fresh and smelled like the ocean!

The waitstaff were just fine and Marinko is the best!

“Amazing!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Probably the best seafood restaurant in Umag with fresh seafoods and reasonable price. The service was superb and the staffs were very friendly. We went to Lado almost everyday for dinner because we couldn't find anywhere that better than Lado. Hope to visit again in the near future.
