It is 5th best Croatian restaurant this year. I had high expectations. I expected high prices and small portions but I also expected extraordinary taste. I didn't get it. Everything was average without that special touch that this type of high class restaurant should have. Definitely overpriced and over ranged restaurant for my taste. I really enjoy good food and...

If you want to eat something special in the area don't miss it! Although not cheap! :) The Owner / Manager is very kind and informative! You can also taste for free the variety of top class olive oils!

We went at night. Looks better than those alongside. Clearly expensive. Some waiters friendly, helpful eg re wine selection. Apprentice a bit pretentious smelling cork (not reliable) then spilled. I had fish. Waiter kindly offered to fillet for me. Excellent! No! Worse than my feeble efforts. ExtrActing bones rest of meal. Partner's steak good as was her entree. My tuna... More

This is a 9 out of 10. We ordered the Summer Classic tasting menu for three. I had the tuna prosciutto without bread and truffle sauce, but with the lovely merlot sorbet. I liked it. My friends who had the whole dish loved it. The prawn risotto was very tasty, although too salty for my taste. The fish with polenta... More

They made a wrong order of my entree.I asked the waiter was that the mixed grill shells I ordered and he lied to me and say yes.After finished our meal we checked the menu outside... More

My wife and I ate at Plavi Podrum last week ,we were cruising on the Crystal Symphony. This was our second visit following a dinner last year whilst on another cruise. We walked to and from the restaurant along the Lungomare which is a stunning walk with different vistas at every turn. So we felt we had earned our lunch.... More

We were recommended to eat here, having apparently won some award a few years ago. It was a nice setting in the little harbour area but whilst the food was better than average and nicely presented, the "tourist tax" high prices didn't really make the experience feel worth it overall once we'd tried others in the area.

Fantastic food experience,great service and beautiful location. Seafood display was full of first class daily cache from local fishermen. Wine list is full of Croatian winemakers and that give you a fantastic experience pare with food. All together,really nice day and relaxing atmosphere.

Even though this is listed as one of the best restaurants in the Opatija area and the setting is postcard perfect, I wouldn't eat there again. I visited with two other friends and not one of us had a decent meal. The service too was worth noting. When we asked for olive oil to go with our bread, the smart... More
