I recommend this restaurant to everyone who wants to have perfectly prepared domestic food from local, fresh ingredients. I had a lunch there and every dish was just perfect. Staff very professional and kind. It was a real pleasure to visit this restaurant and try one of the best meals ever!

A bit remote, you need a car, and up in the hills, you can really enjoy good quality local cuisine for a fair price: we paid 140 € for 3 persons, including Dalmatian Rosé, the fish and veal carpaccio, steak and delicious sea food ravioli covered with mushrooms and truffels. A must go.

Food menu is seasonal and every dish is made from fresh, local ingredients. Everything they offer is extraordinary, dishes are stunningly delicious. Last time I ate 1) smoked veal carpaccio with porcini mushrooms salad, 2) risotto frutti di mare, 3) veal medalions with pesto made from honey, nuts and local spices and 4) chocolate souffle with perfect rosemary, olive oil,...

My family learnt about this place few years ago- and tonight was my first time to visit- a wonderful young couple is managing the restaurant and the food is just out of this world! Come!

The 4 of us were there a couple of times already, every time it was exellent. The scampi risotto is one of the best I ever had. The home made ravioli are also realy good. The main course were meat dishes - veal medallions in two different ways and veal knee which was as tender as butter. Boskarin was also... More

What a treat. We found this restaurant on TA. A carpaccio appetizer gratis, Mediterranean shrimp with homemade pasta and truffles appetizer, and goulash style beef with polenta, and thick veal medallions wrapped with bacon and topped with coarse ground pistachios. Topped off with a dessert like a chocolate lava cake with iced white (not sweet) chocolate. Every dish that was... More

Although hard to find, it is a place not to be missed by a foodie. Presentation and the quality of the meals is excellent. Service is top notch as well.

In a couple or with friends is always at a high level. Two parallel tables, twenty people, a great chef and service.

I made a reservation for our group of friends but when we arrived there were no guests at all, so it was unnecessary. We did not receive any menu and there was not much to choose from, especially for the starters and the first course and the main dishes were all about meat. The waiter was not very helpful and...
