We went to this restaurant based on the reviews and so glad that we did. It was perfect in every way. The welcome we got, the fabulous service all night... read more long from all the family. The staff were so friendly and took so much time to talk to us and explain the food and drink. The food was to die for- so so old.Tuna carpaccio, swordfish beautifully cooked, grilled squid all served with perfect vegetables and fabulous olive oil and bread. We had a wonderful evening. Thank you so much. We may come tomorrow as well!

I came to the restaurant on recommendation, I heard all the best about it: from the food, the ambiance and the service, but when I got there I was very... read more disappointed. I can’t say anything about the food because I didn’t try anything, and only because the waiter (owner) of the restaurant was so rude and arrogant. I came at lunch time and he told me that all the tables were reserved , and that it remained to that I would have left without any anger because it's my fault that I didn't call) (there is always possibility finding a free table), but he told me that he will look and asked me if I was alone, I said that I am at the moment, but that my parents should join me soon and so I stood aside and waited for some feedback from him,but he was having fun with one table where three of them were sitting and he ignored me.
I turned and left!!!!
He probably thought I wouldn't spend much because he behaved like that !!!!
I think that's very rude and unprofessional of a caterer who’s there as a owner.
We had great lunch here. Everything we ate was sooo delicious (fish soup, fresh tuna steak, adriatic squid, anchovies and sardines, homemade bread, Dubrovačka rosata called "happy and"). We recommend... read more also homemade liqueurs and Graševina krauthaker. Service was more then excellent and the view from restaurant unforgetablle.
