Self service. Just inside the park, the food is ok and the price is very cheap. We love the goulash and the rice

We ate both dinners at Poljana. It is walking distance to the hotel Plitvice. Prices are also lower for almost the same menu. Both evenings we were there before 7pm hence we were seated by the large windows overlooking the garden outside. The waiter and waitresses there are very helpful and polite. Service is fast. The tables have table cloth... More

We had an excellent meal at this great restaurant. The waiter was excellent and happy to talk and joke with us, and to share some of his experiences living in the area. Between us we had cream vegetable soup which was basically a mushroom soup for starters. For mains we had the stuffed trout, which like all trout in the... More

There is not much in the area of the parks, so I highly recommend eating here after you hike if you are traveling/driving more than a short distance after. We got the fish and chicken, potatoes and salad. The desserts were ok.

Maybe we enjoyed this a bit more because we were on the verge of hangry... My traveling partner is pescatarian and our choice for food inside the park at 3pm for him was apple or cheese strudel, fries or a small bowl of wilted salad. We found the Poljana Restaurant and they had a whole fish option with a side... More

When you're visiting Plitvice National Park, your restaurant choices are scarce. This restaurant is just outside Entrance 2 (between entrance 2 and station 2) next to Hotel Bellevue. Given its proximity to entrance, I did not expect much. I was wrong, the food was excellent and the service impeccable. The prices are slightly higher but given location and quality I... More

Trout was ok, salad is big, the side dish (stewed veggies) was tasteless. The chicken was in a too big size. The staff was very nice.

My friend and I were staying at Hotel Bellevue and after hiking the lower lakes, didn't arrive in the restaurant until 9:30 pm. We were the only customers and the selection was understandably very limited .We both ordered the grilled trout with potatoes for 40 kunas and it was excellent. Even though this restaurant is cafeteria style, the trout was... More

If you are staying in the park at entrance 2 there are 2 restaurants close by (~200 metres) and we tried them both finding "Poljana" the pick serving similar food at better value. The food and service were both good as was the local wine. Thank you.

Well situated near entrance 2 to Plitvice Lakes National Park. If you stay in one of the apartments or bed & breakfast house in Mukije 1½ km up the road there is a nice path through the woods down to Poljana Restoran. It is probably the closest full service restaurant that close. Good food at reasonable prices - with live... More
