All simply and perfectly cooked from stew to venison in a wild berries sauce. Service was very friendly and professional, offered us free digestive, nice house gesture. Restaurant is placed at the...

Apart from excellent food (boar, deer and such; all died of depression, ok?) take a day off, go for a hike and then indulge yourself in excellent cuisine...but make it sure u get there while daylight so u can enjoy (also) a perfect...

Stopped for lunch on the way up Monte Maggiore. Wasn't disappointed! The mushroom soup was excellent, and served with plenty of bread. Had the 'classico' which again was excellent and certainly enough for two. Service was efficient without being pushy and a good time was had by all. It would also have been churlish to refuse the complimentary drink, so... More

Thos restaurant is good for family visits (especially if you want to visit Učka). They serve good, tasty, reasonably priced food. We had mushroom soup followed by roasted veal and venison stew, and everything was really good.

We visit Dopolavoro regularly, and lamb is always tasty, in the oven, or cooked, it's fresh and well done. The owner is simpatico and we have a nice time up there in the mountains. Excellent place to have a meal in summertime when Opatija is under 35°C or more, here at over 1000 m above the sea level and in... More

We have had large family dinners here on two occasions. Both times, they put together a family style service, rather than off the menu. Both times we were amazed. Most of the meat comes from local hunters right on the mountain. Preparation was outstanding, service was superb. Hard to find this place, but it is definitely worth the trip. Take... More
