We went here after seeing the 1st position of the restaurants close to Plitvice in TripAdvisor and we did not regret at all the choice: we took an Aperitivo (Negroni+Margarita and bruschette) and then as main course some Dumplings with Croatian ham inside and a Tuna Steak. The oil used in the bruschette was very high quality, as well the tuna steak amazing. We went also back 2 days later but just to drink something. Very formal and friendly service, absolutely recommended.

After 2 evenings eating at Restaurant Degenija we decided to give this place a try.
We were disappointed. Service was very slow and when food eventually did arrive it was very cold. Prices steep as well. Would recommend sticking to the other restaurant!

We decided not to go away from the hotel and this restaurant is physically connected to the hotel. It was popular and we had a reservation. There were 6 of us.

One of us ordered 2 starters in place of mains: a pumpkin soup which was found too thick (5/10) and a plain salad (5/10).

The rest of the meal was more promising:

a. Spaghetti in tomato sauce, with black truffles; this dish could do with more truffles (6.5/10).
b. Lamb shank with wine sauce; ok but meat did not fall off the bone and one had to struggle to get the meat off (7/10).
c. Pork tenderloin, wrapped in bacon and stuffed with cheese; the meat was a tad dry (7.5/10).
d. New York striploin steak (7.5/10)
e. Lamb chops Francoise; very tender meat (8.5/10).

Overall service was excellent. We ordered a bottle of 2013 Merlot (240 kn).
The bill came to 1210 kn before tips.

Reservations recommended.

The restaurant has indoor and outdoor seating. Reservations recommended. We made reservations before arriving to the hotel. We ate here 2 nights and thought the service very good. And the menu had ample tasty choices. There were no tour groups when we were there. Only individual travelers. We had a perfect experience.
