One of the better restaurants we've dined at in Croatia. It a large restaurant in a traditional setting, and was almost full even when we arrive at 9pm for dinner.
We had the the house specialty - the slow-cooked veal, the grilled trout, and pork medallions, all of which were fairly tasty.
Would recommend the "Babic" red wine to go with the veal. Service was also very prompt and friendly.

Would recommend this place to anyone visiting the lakes!

The restaurant was full for dinner and it was cold and pouring with rain but the man taking the bookings insisted everybody wait outside under the awning. Quite a few people were annoyed by that and left to go elsewhere. We waited half an hour or so and had very good pizzas. The waiting staff were friendly and efficient and the restaurant seemed smarter than the rest.

Do not expect a high end restaurant. The staff are friendly and try to be helpful. The beef soup was very plain, like it came from a can. The Mediterranean salad was quite good with very fresh vegetables and a nice dressing. The caesar with chicken was also pretty good. The Sea Bream came whole and I had to ask him to filet it but there were still a fair amount of bones. The pancakes with ice cream were good but nothing great.

The atmosphere is like a deli.

We had a special occasion that evening and ordered the day's special - teleshko koljano - veal shank. This was insanely delicious and a huge portion we could barely manage to eat. The service at the restaurant was excellent, good value for money too. We ended up having breakfast there on the next morning, just to enjoy the atmosphere again.

Our accommodation hosts recommended this restaurant and we had such a good experience the first night, we went back the next night. The first night we had amazing pizzas, (we used to own our own pizzeria). The second night we tried the rest of the menu. 7 people and all chose different meals; everyone very happy with their choices. The service was professional and friendly. We thought the meals and drinks were very reasonably priced. This is a busy restaurant. We had a short wait on arrival, but we were seated earlier than had been suggested. We were offered drinks while we waited.
