“Perfect balance between professional and personal”
Reviewed October 7, 2011

My partner and myself have dined at Jeny Restaurant on two occasions. We have tried the Alá Carte as well as the five course menu perfectly accompanied by mostly local wine.

Both is highly recommendable.

It's lovely to experience the true professionalism of the service and kitchen. Its very hard to maintain that standard and still make you feel that you are served by friends. Jeny Restaurants owner and staff does this to perfection.

Bring cash as they do not accept credit card. And book in advance.

Don't bother keeping track of time... you will forget it while dining there. And you will leave feeling very spoiled.

“An exceptional evening”
Reviewed October 3, 2011

Sometimes when you go out for an evening and arrive at your venue you just know that it is going to be a good night. Our visit to Restaurant Jeny was such an occasion. The moment we arrived we felt welcomed. The owner remembered that we were celebrating our 36th wedding anniversary.

We chose the Food and Wine Pairing Menu (http://www.restaurant-jeny.hr/foodandwinepairingmenu.html). The food was exquisite and the wines complimented each course perfectly. The service was exceptional.

We restaurant is highly recommended - you will not be disappointed.

“Go there”
Reviewed September 6, 2011

I read about Jeny here, and we booked a week before we came to Makarska. Its a great place, with quiet and perfect surroundings in the hills. Great service from the manager himself. The 5 course meny with local wine was great- only "negative" thing is that it was quite heavy, with rather large portions and just meat. Some fish would have been perfect! Jeny definately offers something else than all other restaurants we found, and is definately an excellent choice you really should try when you are in the area.
The do not accept credit cards, but the taxi driver is a friend of the manager, so he is the money collector- taking us to the atm on the way back to Makarska:) But you should bring cash. We tried to come back later in the week, but they were fully booked- so book early.

“one of the best restaurant in Croatia”
Reviewed August 12, 2011

I have been to Jeny many times during the past 12 years, and I always get blown away by the quality experience it turns out to be. The location, the excellent food which really is on the best possible level, the always perfect service with small delicate locally produced aperitifs and wines from the neighbouring villages and islands. It makes always a perfect evening.

During my trips and traveling in Croatia, I have been dining on all the top restaurant, several times, but never got better value for money elsewhere. I do know what Im talking about as I have been eating myself through many star restaurants in Europe and restaurant Jeny with Vlado in the kitchen and Milenko in the front house never let me down. Plan you Croatia vacation with one night in Tucepi and restaurant Jeny.

It has to do with the love and passion to food and wine. It has to do with excellent products ending up on the cutting boards in the kitchen and in the wine glasses. It has to do with great skills and good planning. This is Croatian cusine at its best.

Be sure of booking your table in advance and try to be there before sunset. Its a excellent place for a sundowner waiting for the first courses to come. Spend the whole evening there, and expect a wonderful dinner experience.
