Foodlovers pay attention: if you’re searching for a taste experience JOEL is a MUST! Never eaten so good in my life and trust me - I‘m food addicted and always hunting for delicous food. I’m a german foodbloger. Sadly we found this hidden jewel on...our last day in Novalja. Service and food were on point and at it’s best, that’s why we decided to come back for breakfast before we drove back to Germany. And again: it was a pleasure! The quality of the food is very high, it‘s all homemade/ domestic (which I really appreciate) and the taste is an explosion. AND it‘s not expensive for the quality you get! We paid for 2 adults and a child converted 76€. We had a starter, 3 meals, dessert, 4 Espresso and cold drinks. We found this hidden champ on trip advisor and we would also like to recommend ist to all of you guys! It’s definitely a 10 out of 5.. the crowd didn‘t lie. Thanks for this experience, we‘ll come back!More

One of the best places to eat we visted since we got to Croatia coast! Great effort and great crew ! Risotto was epic,smoker truffle steak was Pièce de résistance.. no word , nice wine pairing.. and no tasting menus are only available for hotel...guests.. tho this was perfect for a la carte options!More

We had tuna steak and the taste was perfect! Even the black polenta was something I never had before but I would strongly recommend you try this. It is maybe a bit difficult to see the restaurant form the road because it's a bit hidden,...but it was worth coming and trying the food. 👌More

Food was brilliant quality and interesting options on offer. Service was impeccable. Not overly priced for quality of food. The humus starter was very well presented and tasty. The main course was also excellent. A beautiful meal and would definitely return.
