The location lookss nice but the food is below average and the waiters are rude. Had to wait more than 1h for our main course to be served. After complaining (our kids were totally hungry already), we just got rude answers such as that 1h is a normal waiting time after having starters (= soup). The waiters also never asked... More

There was full house, but the waiters are polite and helpful. The food is not outstanding, but fine. Nice view to the sea.

One of the worst restaurant experiences ever. We came along with friends wanting to experience the delights of Istrian cuisine. What a mistake! We ordered 4 different appetizers: octopus salad, anchovies and fish carpaccio were garnished with the same 3 sauces, and clams buzara was full of bread crumbs without any sauce at all. The worst is yet to came.... More

Maybe it was because I was traveling alone Anyhow waiting more than 30 minutes to place the order isn't a real nice vacation experience. They offer a stunning sunset. Food was good but not excellent. I tried to pay, was asking for the bill, but after 40 mins I just let the money for food and drinks at the table... More

If you're lucky- ie come early you might get a table right by the water front. This is the perfect spot to while away an evening with good food and cool wine. Pleasant staff (although busy) and good seafood. We tries fish skewers, Tomato soup, gnocchi w cheese sauce and fritto misto and every one was happy.

We had huge expectations and we were terrible disappointed. Food was average, service with very pretentious waiter, and chef that came to explain that our feedback on the food is not valid and that we don't actually know... Rarely bad feeling after restaurant visit

Cannot think of a worse experience in last 20-30 years. Pushy and pretentious waiter, but clueless about seafood and local wines. "Homemade" bread came out of microwave. We followed the recommendation to enjoy the set menu, consisting of 7 dishes. We gave up after the 5th, requesting the bill. The arrangement called for matching dishes with different wines. Most of... More
