This place is fabulous. Lovely traditional food fast friendly service very inexpensive. We both had the pig on a spit with roasted vegetables. Absolutely positively delicious. After a long day this lovely big meal was just perfect.

My girlfriend and I had a mushroom soup, the roast lamb and suckling pig. All was delicious, and the mushroom soup is a must! Very generous portions. It seems to be the most popular restaurant in the region: was full on a Tuesday evening when all the others were practically empty.

We were on a tour of the lakes and waterfalls and our tour guide drove us here. The almandine trout is excellent, the local beer excellent, everyone enjoyed their dish. We were starving and they brought a lot of bread for us to eat as we waited. Clean, good outdoor eating too.

We stopped for a late lunch/early dinner at Bistro Vila Velebita. We were on a guided tour with Portal and were able to put our orders in beforehand and so the food was just about ready when we arrived. Since it was a rather late lunch around 4 o'clock, everyone was appreciative of the quick service. The food was very... More
