Description: The Nicolo Polo Restaurant is one of the oldest still operating restaurants in Gradac. It entered the Polo family in 1988 but was known as " Bartuls place" before that. Has since it opened been known as one of the best places in the whole region to dine in, famous for its fresh ingredients, sometimes taken directly from the sea, and continously changing menu. Our cuisine is mainly sticking to the motto "to sell a domestic experience" and focus therefore mostly on Dalmatian-Mediterranean Cuisine. However, for those guests that feel more comfortable with an International and trendy offer our menu wont lack that either. As the owner was born and raised in Sweden and his family Restaurant tradition goes back to the 60ies in Sweden, as being one of the first Restaurateurs from Croatia, a small touch of Scandinavia can be felt in the food too. Anyhow, Croatia is not only Dalmatia (The Mediteranian). Croatias gastronomy is reflected from a long seize of many neighboring countries, such as the Ottomans(Turky), the Habsburg (Hungary, Austria), Venize and Rome (Italy), Napoleon (France) and more that can be felt in other areas of Croatia and Herzegovina. Also, as Marco Polo was an explorer and gourmand, here and there even a trace of Asian flavors can be felt in some of our specialties - areas he explored. When traveling to new places and food cultures, people want to explore new tastes and hopefully choose the best quality. We wish to be your ambassador of a great gastronomy experience - this include interesting and changing menus for the best quality in our house, organizing wine and gastro tours, organizing evenings where we take you to old taverns hard to find....

This is the best restaurant if you are looking for find dining in Gradac. Great service also from the wait staff. You need to book a table though as you can't just walk in from the street like a lot of the small restaurants. I always drop into this restaurant every year when I go to Croatia.

We had a lovely evening here. The service was good, the food was tasty and we enjoyed the live music. The owner walked around and said hello to all the customers at the end of our meal which was a nice touch. My husband had the veal which he enjoyed and I had the pork medallions and everything on my plate was delicious. House red was OK but I'd probably choose something different if I went back. Overall I would definitely put this on your list of restaurants to visit during your time in Gradac.

Absolutely the best restaurant in Gradac with high quality and professional service.Extraordinary menu which varies daily gives a chance to enjoy different but authentic meals.Staff really friendly,helpful and warm,always suggesting the best and indulging all kind of demands (one of us was "free gluten" and the other has a different food allergies).Well done!!

Having heard so many positive comments about the place, we decided to visit. I was disappointed as on the day there was only choice of 1 fish. Maybe it was because we came for lunch, so the choice might be better for the evening. However, food was delicious and staff very helpful and friendly. The location is perfect, sitting almost on the beach and having a perfect view to the sea.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for coming to our restaurant. You are right our lunch menu is short because we have a very complex dinner menu. Our lunch menu was designed more towards salads, pastas and risottos in order to keep lunch fresh and light. We do invite you to come to our restaurant for dinner. We have special themed dinners like Dalmatian night with live music on Tuesdays, Fish night on Thursdays(we promise more than one choice of fish), Gala night with live music on Fridays. Please visit us again.
