Reviewed By gazinho - Rio de Janeiro, RJ

Rustic riverside restaurant on the margins of the densely rushed wetlands, close to the Bosnian border - allow plenty of time if crossing for snail speed bureaucratic stamping of passports...
Our lunch was enlivened by a wedding anniversary party with accompanying male singers & accordion singing traditional songs.
Parking difficult.
Modern, well displayed Roman museum opposite gives discount to diners.

We stopped for late evening meal after a long day on the road. We were made welcome and served some really delicious cream tomato soup and salad. The next morning we returned for breakfast and and ordered omelettes (ham and cheese) which were very nice and we appreciated the flavour of the local cheese. That was all "washed down" with excellent coffee. Good food - reasonable price -gracious host.

Restoran Pecina

Reviewed By sunandsand45 - Delaware

Restaurant Pecina is located in Ploce where the A-1 Hwy ends and before you get to the marshy area of the Neretva River. There are no gas stations/ rest stops with food on a long stetch of the new Hwy before Ploce. Pecina has a lovely, vine covered Terrace, a dark bar that looks like a cave and two indoor dining areas (one with the cave theme). We ate there on our way to Dubrovnik and again, on the way back.We were pleasantly surpised both times! On the first visit I had a very tasty tomato based seafood risotto and my husband had an excellent grilled shish-k-bob. On our 2nd visit we started with an exceptionally good marinated seafood salad. As an entree my husband had the Adriatic squid. He had a very generous portion of 8 or 9 very tasty squid. I had a wood grilled Bass which was one of the freshest, tastiest fish I had the whole trip. (That is really saying something because we ate a lot of fish!). On top of this the prices are very reasonable for the quality and quantity of food served.
My only complaint is about the bathrooms. Although they are basically clean and provide a generous supply of toilet paper and paper towels they are dingy and dark. They need a fresh coat of paint and better lighting. In addition, the 2nd time I was there the toilet seat was off in the ladies room.

Konoba Narona

Reviewed By Lid64 - Bled, Slovenia

Me and my husband visited restaurant Konoba Narona when returning from our trip from Serbia, Macedonia, Greece, Albania , Montenegro and Croatia. Our last stop was for lunch in Croatia. We wanted to eat some traditional fish jegulje from the Neretva river. We asked the locals where to eat the best fish and they send us to the right place. The restaurant is situated near the river. We were siting inside near the fire place. The friendly owner served us first local proschutto which was delicious with some fresh home made bread. For a main course we ordered jegulje on grill and they were the the best in my life. Fresh, perfectly grilled and served with some local vegetables.We decided to take some local wine, so we ordered some Žilavka from the region of Bosnia-everything together-price,service,taste, value -perfect. So my advice if you are in the neighbourhood or even if you need to make some extra kilomethers its worth going. We will certanly go back. Compliments.

Restoran Lopoc

Reviewed By Bob B - Holiday, Florida

We departed from Dubrovnik in order to visit Naronna. After our visit to Naronna, we topped here for lunch before continuing the drive to Split. The establishment is clean, comfortable, and air conditioned. We dined on a set menu which was really a cut above the rest. The appetizer was Croatian proscuitto and cheese; followed by a green salad. The main course was grilled pork chops and breast of chicken accompanied by mash potatoes. Dessert was a type of layer cake, a bit too sweet for my taste. Wine and beer as well as coffee were available.

Pros: value for money, big portions, has some interesting speciality dishes like black risotto and frog dishes but we had snitzel which was excellent, indoor and outdoor Seating. Cons: difficult to to find, unlikely you'd go unless passing through, but do if you can.

Currently travelling from Australia with my family through Croatia and as we are exploring the beautiful Neretva Valley we stopped at this restaurant by chance... we tried grilled fish and a frog brudet... both of these were amazing and were complimented by beautiful wine. The customer service was also fantastic so next time we visit Croatia we will be sure to visit again. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Reviewed By Jadranko T

Tasty food, excellent service, very reasonable price and nice ambient right across museum.
We were there with three kids on a hot day, looking for a place to eat and lady from the museum recommended Tabakera right across the museum entrance.
We were pleasantly surprised by the served meal, they did everything we've asked for the kids and the price was reasonable.
