It looks very inviting, but looks are deceiving. The food literally took 2 hours to arrive at the table. When I asked where the food was they told us they served it to the wrong table. When the food finally arrived it was extremely disappointing. In terms of the price, as well as taking the ambience into consideration, the overal experience was disastrous to say the least. All in all it looks inviting , but quality/value it’s definitely not worth it.

We arrived for dinner at 9pm, we understand this is late and a busy time but from the moment we arrived, our service was shocking. It took ages for a waiter to take our drinks order and another 25 mins for our drinks to arrive. We ordered starters and mains, and after an hour and a half, we had finished our bottle of Prosecco and still no food had arrived. We asked numerous times where our food was, at first we were told that our starters would be on the house because of the wait and then we we’re told we must ‘be polite’ after being told that as if that solves everything. We were not rude or rowdy, just tried to express our disappointment to them and this was not listened to at all. Waiting until 10:30 to eat is just ridiculous. We decided to pay for the bottle and leave and luckily had no protest from anyone at the restaurant. Absolute joke of a place.

We only read all of the negative reviews after we had ordered and were quite stressed. Both the drinks and the food (sea bass fillet) were good - definitely not life-changing, but ok. The staff was not particularly attentive, but that’s fully understood given how busy it was.

Wish I’d read the reviews before I dropped in here for a bite to eat. Worst food and service I’ve experienced in Croatia. Tremendously overpriced too. Stay away.

Absolutely awful experience! We were a group of 6 and ordered food and drinks when we asked for the receipt they added in another 230kn for an extra bottle of wine. The waiter only showed us the receipt on his tablet and wouldn’t print it out stating that the extra cash was because the prices were different from the menu (which they weren’t). We were shocked when we saw the reviews on TripAdvisor afterwards, that’s a lesson we definitely learned!

Absolute disgrace to such a beautiful city.
