Very disappointed with the food and service - felt like a fast food restaurant at best! The view is nice, but we went for dinner and literally could not wait to leave - house wine was horrendous - would not recommend.

Beautiful view. Terrible cook and waiters. Fish is over cooked and tasteless. After complaining and asking for something else, the first dish is still on the bill. The waiter had tasted it and it was ok. No discussion! Never had such a experience before. Go to Lovran but skip this restaurant.

Nothing bad about our experience at all. But for such a location it was really too bad the food was so...meh.

Service was a bit rude. I don't understand why owners don't train or fire underperforming staff. Meal was eatable but not impressive. Too many tourist, I guess quality is not important. I am very disappointed with tripadvisor ratings. I could have eating at a pizzeria and gotten better food!

This review is another example of how the human element can make or break a dining experience. First visit for lunch was first class. The waiter was so good I assume he was the owner. If not he is extremely valuable. He explained the menu to us in detail and took the time to ensure we understood what we were ordering-our Croatian is non existent. The food arrived and it was one of the best meals of our trip so far. The restaurants position right on the water was icing on the cake. It was such a great experience we booked for dinner the following night. Enter the waiter who didn't want to be there. He directed us to table that was not set for dinner, dropped menus in front of us and disappeared without asking if we would like a pre dinner drink. He reappeared 20 minutes to take our order but showed no interest in any explanations of the menu. His English was not so good but my wife speaks fluent German a language the he spoke as well but all he wanted to do was disappear as quickly as possible. To cut a long story short I got a meal that I didn't want because of his lack of courtesy. A real pity as the position of the restaurant is amazing and we wanted to linger and enjoy our last night in the beautiful Lovran.
