Food in this restaurant is great, they offer a lot of seafood. I was only disappointed about the menu, it's written in a lot of languages, but incorrect.

We enjoyed our meal here. The garden was serene and there was shade provided by the large umbrellas. The pizza was good, pasta was good and also fish dish tasty. Good service. Price reasonable .

We was staying in close by hotel and we had all inclusive there but that restaurant was so cosy that we went there more than twice. Food was delicious. Vine from Istra totally delicious. Service was great. That time they had bread with octopus and was delicious.Thank you for service and great food. We will be back.

Hello Simon,

Im very sorry that you had to wait, and that the service was not as you expected.
On May 1. we were full and had a group of 20 people, this is the reason why you have to wait a little bit longer than an other days.
I appologise to you because we didnt meet your expectations and we are sorry for that.
I know that May 1. and the group can not be an excuse but that is what happened.
The octopus portion was big as usual, we measure every single portion, since it's a fish course and you if you are very hungry it's to be expected that you won't feel as full as after a meat dish. With every fish course we recommend ordering an appetizer first.
I don't know on which other food are you refering to, because as you said you only had pizzas and octopus.

We're they unexpectedly busy? I don't think it was just that. Did they judge us to be low value customers? More fools them. Or was it just that we are foreign? We enjoyed our pizza but left without having anything else because we were sick of being ignored.

Nice ambience if they could get the service right.

Dear Mr Niall,
I´m very sorry that we disappointed you with the lack of our service, and I understand your point of view.
But I assure you that it was "just" a organisational problem, and we were cought unprepared, because 2 waiters have a day off, and we were just in 2 on the hole terrace and on the bar.
This was our mistake, but its a fact,, and we were not able to manage the hole terrace just in 2.
We are sorry that we didnt treat you the way we treat all our guest, witch mean with respect and courtesy, no matter what were they eating, a salad or fish, and were they foreign or domestic.
I apologize once again, and if you will give us a second chance we will improve, and
will prove that we do not make difference on our guests.
