Wife and I ate pizza with scampi and sea food pizza. It was very dry and a little burned. They serve only Croatian beer. Place have a lovely armosphere but the food should be a little bit better.

Great restaurant with delicious meal. Try tomato soup and sea food. Croatian cake called rozata is awesome. Owner is in every day and he is as good as his staff. Go and enjoy!
