We had dinner here on our first night because it was on the hotel site and we were to tired to venture out. The decor of the restaurant was nice, very warm and inviting. They didn't have a kids menu but had children's portions so just ask! We ordered the chicken soup to start which was nice but more like... More

We ate here because we were staying at the attached hotel. The service was horribly slow. We had plates on the table when we sat down. The bread arrived and the waitress removed our plates and didn't bring olive oil for the bread. It was odd since every other place in Croatia gives you olive oil to dip your bread... More

Ambiance, fabulous local cuisine and strolling musicians added to our dining experience. Loved it so much that we returned again to experience the "Magic." Vesna, our waitress, took care of us like we were family. Mahalo (thank you), Vesna, and we'll see you next year. Kiana & Scott...Kaua'i, Hawaii

We ordered pizza here and for a cool £14 I was seeded raw bacon huge chunks of frankfurter on a pizza base swimming in oil. Utterly revolting. Staff were lovely but food disgusting

The lamb cutlets were excellent and the spot was very convenient outside of the hotel. Very cool pirate-ship interior to the restaurant. The service was fairly average, although waiting staff were friendly. Mussels were decent, but the sauce was a little watery and flavourless.

Expensive wines from Italy and although it was mentioned that local wine was available there was no list or prices. Lamb Pasta was tasty but seafood one needed seasoning. £50 for 2 bowls of pasta and 2 glasses of wine is expensive for Croatia.

We liked the atmosphere of this restaurant, and some nights it had entertainment. However, the food was nothing special.

What a shame the restaurant was almost empty - it really deserves to be fully booked. Apparently this was due to many of the hotel rooms being taken by conference members who were eating privately. My husband had baked strukli to begin which is an egg dough stuffed with fresh cottage cheese. Doesn't sound much but it tasted lovely. I... More

Our meal was terrible - however the staff could not have been more helpful - sack the chef ( if he is one ) I'm giving it two stars as food is minus stars and staff are 5 star.
