Being right by the main road it's rather noisy but the cooking's good. Great corn bread. Nicely grilled sea bass. OK shopska salad. Good wine. Not overpriced, but no offer of dessert and service a bit hit and miss. All in all well worth a visit.

When we came to the restaurant it had a very nice and stylish ambient. However some of our food items were raw (stuffed chicken breast and pork chops ). Quite dissapointing, however the owner was courtious of not charging for that specific dish. The food was average and lacked flavor, might of just been a bad day. Im sure they're... More

This restaurant is by far the best one in Makarska. I ate here hundreds of times literally and have never been disappointing.

Fried fish was an excellent choice for today. And the price was good, too. We have accompanied it with a glass of Stina red wine. Thumbs up for a lemon dessert!

Was surprised to find that hiden gem on the main road! However because it was November there were not many people on the streets so it was quite at the restaurant. The service was very good the waiter was pleasent. Now, the food; i ate tuna steak with cheese and it was amazing! Would reccommend it!

Very good seafood and fish... But one waitress was arguing loud with another one. And things get serious, so we went and started to look another restaurant...

Arrived late and exhausted in Makarska and our Airbnb host pointed us to this restaurant. Nice decor, interesting 'outdoor' room which means you can hear street noise and people can smoke.
