this is not a every-day restaurant, this is a real treat that you should allow yourself once in a while
The sitting area outside is amazing, waiters are really into both food and complementary drinks, weather it is wine, craft beer or sometnih else
food is a story for itself, there are no words to describe it, come and try :)

So they don't take bookings and it was full when we arrived at 7.45pm, no problem we went round the corner for an aperitif in Vino and Ino. One hour later we returned to wait in the beautiful courtyard perusing the menu. The wait was only about 10 minutes.
Very friendly waiter who works very hard. Nothing was too much trouble and the service was attentive but not intrusive
The octopus salad starter was enough for us both to share and was beautiful. Lots of octopus.
I had the tuna which was served with mangold ( spinach, small cubes of potato and beans something I've never had before and it was delicious). Good sized tuna, soooo fresh and cooked to perfection. The best ever it just melted in my mouth.
My husband had the grilled calamari and wow!!! I would never order calamari as I worry about it being overlooked and rubbery but this was incredible. This too was served with mangold.
We opted for the litre bottle of Grasevina at 100 but they also did a cheaper one at 80kn. All in less than £50 and we felt that this was excellent value for money for the setting, ambience and excellent food quality. It was lovely to be outside without streams of people walking past you as you eat your meal. We are already planning our next visit!

Nice and quiet restaurant which was a nice relief from the hectic tourist paths in Sibenik. The service was good and the waiters very friendly. Although the food was good, prices are a bit on the higher side. Nevertheless we would go again.

We were looking for a good local restaurant outside the main tourist places along the coast. This really is a gem! Easy to get to (on the D58 from Sibenik to Split) and a wonderful shaded Terrace with view of the hills. Service was good and as we arrived rather early, we did not have to wait long. While we were having our meal, the Terrace was getting full with mainly local families. We had both the roast pork and roast lamb. My wife preferred the pork and I the lamb, but both were great! When you order the roast meat, don't forget to order some side dishes because these are not automatically included, except some roast potatoes. We of course ordered bread as we read that they have lovely home made bread and that is definitely true! It was so nice that we ordered some more to take home. One loaf only 24 Kuna but as big as a stepping stone, some 40 cm square! And we ordered some Duvec rice, also very very tasty. My daughter had the mixed grill which was very good as well and a huge portion (90 Kuna), including Raznjici, sausage, cevapcici, two pork chops. Waiter was very nice and offered us some drinks on the house when we ordered dessert. Would definitely go there again.

Came here twice and was very impressed both times. Tried the pizza and a mixed grill and both were very good. And yet it seemed to manage to be cheaper than other restaurants in the vicinity. Not sure how it does that but certainly not complaining!

In July this year we wisited Sibenik and since we dont know the restaurants here we, like always, looked into Tripadvisor for recomendation. The restaurant Nostalgia ranked the highest so we made Reservations for dinner.
When we came there we instantly had this poor, bad feeling, like it looks about to be a disaster. And boy were we right!
First the ambient and decor were totaly absent, not there at all. Not comfortable at all. The food is total disaster, my second course was hardly edible! I left it all there on the plate, and they didnt even bother to ask if something is wrong since i didnt eat it. And our starters were all the same, but we ordered different pastas. Taste of it? Njah... what ever. And let me tell you about the wine disaster of a year! Totaly no knoledge about it in the first place, the glases they gave us for strong and havy barik red were disgrace - the small round 1dl glas. I should take a picture of it! And the wine bottle was hot! Not warm but hot and when i asked to cool it down becase it is udrinkable this way they brought a container with ice and covered it with dust cloth! How disgusting was that.
Anyway total disaster, i can not believe this place rankes so high on TA. People, dont go for the first restaurant that pops out, read the reviews! I learned thad before and now double check it allways.

I've visited this charming bar with couple of friends last weekend. We've spent a lovely evening there enjoying great local vines and cheese & charcuterie plate. Chilled mediterranean like atmosphere and super nice service. We came back the morning after for smoothies and the best coffee on Adriatic coast :) Loved it!

We had a Pizza and a side salad of Mozzarella and Tomato. The Pizza was ok but a little too salty. Would have given another star but the waitress was miserable and looked like she wanted to be elsewhere and there's no credit card facility.

Very friendly staff and home coocked meal.
Very tipical Croatian food. I suggest to ask waiter what is prepared that day, as daily dish.
If you would Like to try simple Croatian dish, what is served in most Croatian homes, you are at right place.
I would give 5, but as I am Croatian, for "gablec" type of food is bit overpriced.
