From Bistro, straight to the five star hotel. A little something for everyone.
How did we got there? By coincidence, it was raining and … but if you don’t believe in luck, we came for a good reason. We wanted to taste a very good food from the hotel menu, a five star menu.
Since I have always been a little sceptical regarding the top menus by Croats, I also wasn’t thrilled about what to expect here. Not about the service as much as by food. Anyway, It became a pleasant surprise.
A pleasant interior. Decorated and designed with taste. We could hear guests speaking mostly English and German.
You can eat inside, as well as on the exterior terrace with beautifull view to the sea.
There was enough staff to keep an eye on every single guest, to be able to respond in no time. They were all young people, motivated for excellent work.
Small digression: Speaking of staff in fancy restaurants I have always been annoyed by their overemphasized gestures. Waving a large arches with those plates, then bowes,… I would always been more comfortable with usual, calm manners. Like butlers from british TV shows. OK, maybe not so stiffed but sort of.
We had a buffet dinner.
If you are afraid of high prices in such a restaurant, here is a summary from the a la carte menu, just for your reference. Appetizers 45-145 kunas, soups 45-65 kunas, risottos 120-170, meat 115-210. (100 kunas = 13.55 € = 18.86$).
We had a seafood salad appetizer, excellent made and spiced. Grilled fish fillets, sauces, greek salad. Everything was tasty and well prepared.
I see that it is going to be difficult to write a review about this restaurant. „Everything was tasty and well prepared“, blah, blah But it’s true.
Let me continue, we had steaks as our main course. Again, all praises. Fresh meat, well done, yet soft. Just as I prefer. I had boiled Swiss Chard as a side dish. My only objection is that it was overcooked. Anyway, all together I rate it 5 out of 5.
And finaly, delicious apple cake. Yummy, I would have one slice again right now.
After, I would recommend a walk along the hotel seashore. Magnificent yachts and ships anchored there.
One of it named „My pleasure“, and just for your pleasure, you could have a cup of coffe in one of caffes.
