Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Although the busy lunch hour, the waitress gave you the feeling that we are welcome. She even brought some toys to the table for the young one. We received our order quite quickly. The food was average but tasty. I tried dalmatian pizza, the rest...of the company ate fried squids or rice with some veggies. The location of the restaurant is right by the seashore which is great, although there is a road between the restaurant and the terrace. I recommend the restaurant If you are looking for nice meal for reasonable price.More

We found the restaurant by chance after venturing office the road to Zadar. We choose the octopus salad and a seafood dish for two. Both were wonderful and the white wine was also great. Service was great. I recommend this restaurant.

We were searching for a resaurant to eat a lunch and found this one by the way. It was a rainy day, so we ate inside. Immediatelly we saw that the restaurant was not very clean. We ordered one pizza and pleskavica. The food is...average or low range, so are the prices. After leaving this place, we were not satisfied at all. Nevertheless suddenly after, we all had stomach pain, so we will never come back again!More

We picked this a little by random on our last day in Sukosan. Went for the Seabass after considering the fish platter. We have spent the last week travelling around the islands and eaten a lot of fish. This was probably the best, definitely out...best lunch and great service too. Fish was grillled with their own family made olive oil, rosemary and garlic marinade, simple but delicious. The guy serving us was really nice, explaining the way they cooked things and (perhaps because we asked about the fish) gave us a bottle of their family olive oil to take away. Highly recommend it you are looking for some great fresh fish.More

The food was of very decent quality, not bad, not especially good, just average. 'Mix salad' is just sliced cabbage, 4 slices of tomato and 3 cucumber slices. No taste, no salt, nothing at all. The bottles for olive oil and vinegar were extremely dirty,...I was shocked that the waitress moved these disgusting bottles to the next table when we finished and another guests sat by the table.More

On our way from Rijeka to Split we stopped here to break up the journey and have a bite to eat. the position is lovely right next to the water and it was very quiet. The waitress service was good although communication was difficult, but...that is my problem after all I should speak Croatian. Feeling unadventurous and wanting a fairly quick easy meal i ordered a Spaghetti Bolognese whilst my wife had the muscles. The Bolognese did not look particularly appetising when it arrived but tasted nice. The Muscles on the other hand were cold and extremely salty. She did not eat them and returned them to the kitchen who said it was how they eat them in Croatia. That being the case their salt intake must be worryingly high. She was not offered and alternative or a refund/discount. On the whole a mixed review and if I were to return to this town I would sacrifice the view for a restaurant that put more effort into its food and customer care and not relied on its proximity to the sea.More

Had an excellent, if slightly salty, fried calamari here with a nice dipping sauce for lunch. So far have not been too impressed with food in Croatia but this place was decent

In contrast of what I read in other peoples reviews from last couple of months, like windy terras ( Well you might be wise not to look for a restaurant that has its terras right next to the sea), and not complete salads or even...tomato soup that was out of a bag (never heard of tomato cream soup?) I would really like to recommend this restaurant for all kinds of people that look for good food in Sukosan. Waiter and Waitress ( probably owners) where extremely nice and helpful, food was exactly what you can expect for the price.More

Nice place, pleasant waitress at start.. I thought that it is good restaurant.. Never! We ordered tomato soup and it was INSTANT soup from bag! After they brought to me salat with cheese and it was really small portion and high price! My friends ordered...pizzas and it were almost raw.. My next friend ordered meat with baked potatoes and waitress brought cooked potatoes instead of it and she said that it is baked.. So if it was baked we are all stupid! I am really angry from this restaurant!!! 😡More
