The first thing that we noticed was the very polite and knowledgeable waiter. First of all he gave us enough time to decide before coming to ask for our order, when he came to take our order he commented on what the order would entail and how the wine and cheeses would complement each other. As the order arrived, he... More

Enjoyed a platter of "Pag" cheeses with some excellent Croatian wine. Went for a quick drink and stayed the evening.

My friends and I visited this place on a quiet November afternoon. It was just us, so the waiter was kind enough to extensively explain the wines and cheeses. We all loved what we had! Great place to stop in and hang out. It's really only a snack, so I wouldn't come expecting a meal... I would definitely go here... More

Great selection of wine and cheese here, with great recommendations from our waiter. The only downside was when we had visited this place earlier in the week, they were rather busy but they made sure you knew about it and we didn't feel comfortable enough to take a seat as we thought the waiter at that time was rude. However,... More

Popped in here to while away an hour or so and ended up spending the whole afternoon. Really nice atmosphere and easy to find near the theatre. Good local Croatian wine, knowledgeable staff and various cheese options to suit everyone. We were lucky as our waiter initially served the wrong cheese platter, but let us keep this one for free...

Wide selection of local wines and cheeses, available either by the flight or glass. Cheeses were great and prices very reasonable.
