Excellent Croatian wine list with great help from the sommelier and wait staff. We had the asparagus soup with goat foam that was a real Top Chef experience where the food was composed... More

We were staying at the Esplanade Hotel and decided to eat in the restaurant on our first night. It was an excellent experience in every respect. We had the four course meal, which I thought might prove too much for me, but each course was tastefully presented and just the right sized portion. There were several mini courses in between...
