“It's going down hill”
Reviewed September 11, 2013

We have been eating in this "Restaurant" for the last couple of years and every year the food quality is going down and the prices are going up a notch. This year was the worst and we decided not to eat anymore in Moby Dick. The waiters are not to blame, they are doing there best but Management should think about quality and not let this "Restaurant" become a fast food outlet " order-eat-pay-go and do not complain".( there are plenty in Novalja ). Is the Croatian cuisine dead???

“Nothing special, very average food.”
Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Average food, nothing special. The only good thing is you can eat everything here: from pizza to fish. Prices are ok.

“excellent pizza”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

Moby Dick is is a very good place to have pizza in Novalja, probably even the best one. Offering a relatively large number of pizzas its easy to find one that will suit ones tastes. They use pelati instead of ketchup which is very nice and adds much more flavour to a pizza. The servings are quite generous so you won't leave hungry. Beer selection is good and waiters are usually in a hurry but friendly.

There are a couple of drawbacks, which is the main reason for not awarding a 5 star rating... Firstly, it is usually very hot there - they might use a few fans or something as it can get uncomfortable even on the outside terrace. Secondly, it can be pretty crowded and if you come during the dinner time you should count on waiting a bit. The waiters usually do not bother with people waiting so gettin
