Very delicious fish and meat dishes sometimes could be served hotter. Multilingual staff, sometimes lacking attention. Beautiful location at the seaside.

Excellent food on the waterfront, from traditional meat dishes to fresh fish. Great and friendly waitress, perfect sundown!

Seafood platter and home wine were better than I expected, and I expected much! Ivan and Stanko who served us were super polite! We had a dinner 2 meters from the sea, which was spectacular. I suggest you to make a reservation because the restaurant...is well attended. Prices are not high for what you get. What a taste! Definitely we'll come back!More

Very nice restaurant, specially tables by the seaside and friendly service. Food is delicious, I recommend octopus salad and risotto with frutti di mare. Good price.

We ate at vruja 2 times during our stay in podgora. During the week we had worked out way through most restaurants, and for dinner on the last day we both wanted to go to "the place with the fantastc waitress". The risotto was wonderful,...as was the mackerel and, as mentioned, very friendly staff!More

We tried the seabass and the pljeskavica. Both are great. Their ajvar is really good, definitely recommended to try (comes with pljeskavica). Service is friendly, waitress is smiley and kind.

I am eating constsntly at Vruja since a few years. This ie the best restaurant in Podgora when it comes to local food. Fish, sea food - at the very high level. This year they started serving also starters. Waitress service is very friendly and...professional. The owners are very nice, always ready to help guests or deliver something on special request (like make a birthday party). Its Worth asking if they have something special prepared outside standard menu. When it comes to any cons - prices are also higher but they are compensated with quality.More

There are 2 really good restaurants in Podgora. They are neighbors actually - Vruja and Rokko. It is not possible to say which one among these two is better. I propose this like a foodie quest for you. We tried near all the menu in...both restaurant to determine the leader of the day. In Rokko sauces are mind blowing (truffle, gorgonzola and mushroom), in Vruja octopus salad and fried calamari are better. In Rokko serving is cool. And I can continue this list, but it is better you to make your own opinion:)More
