Love this place. Be prepared to spend a long time there going through the menu, slowly, with appetisers, then starters, then a decent roasted sea bass or whatever is fresh from the sea that day. It's spit and sawdust but that's fine with us, we don't need pretension, just a good meal, great wine and lovely service. And we get... More

I stopped here on the recommendation of some locals and I was very, very happy. After spending a morning in the central part of Umag I was pretty disappointed with the overwhelming tourist menus and the overpriced food. So I was very happy to find fresh, reasonably priced seafood right around the corner. I think it came right out of... More

We ate a two person fishplate, and it was the most delicious we have ever eaten. It contained sardinies, shark, shrimps and calamari. They use fresh fish, which is caught by them. We ate a greek salad as side-dish. The waiters are kind. You may should wait a bit, because a lot of people are here. I highly recommend it!

Lado is the place where our family returns regularly when on vacation in the area. The food is delicious, they serve what they catch. Reasonable pricing. However, this year we came there and we were a bit disappointed because they serve only fried fish and seafood - not grilled etc. Still very delicious, but not our hidden gem for the... More

Lado is essentially a fishing club. Yet, it has a very decent restaurant attached. The seafood was exceptional and very reasonably priced. (less than £1.00 for a beer). I heartily recommend the grilled squid and octopus and the Starter for Two. It's all so cheap, order everything :) Service was prompt and friendly and you can sit out on the... More

Lovely informal setting on the waterfront, which is amazing if the weather is good. The service was good and the seafood was very fresh. The prices are reasonable.

Casual vibe about the place. Right on the waterfront. Busy. Watch your bills as out of 3 times we ate there, 2 bills were wrong. Relatively inexpensive but that is to expected as the establishment is very low key.

We were attracted to this venue by mouth-watering smell coming from there and didn't regret any single minute. It's not the fanciest restaurant, but you'll be amazed by the quality of seafood and friendly attitude. It looks like the place is run by fishermen and they serve the freshest and tastiest dishes. And the wine and olive oil are just... More
