It is a restaurant that could match the best restaurants on the world. The menu and vine selection are matching the highest standards of masterpieces in contemporary kitchen. You should try pasta with Adriatic lobster or a selection of sea food dishes. It is just great.

It is one of the best and innovative fish restaurants in the region. Just let Darko lead your through the meal and enjoy "dangerous liasons" of heavenly good food. PS.: The "secret" is that even guitar god E. C. ate there. Ask Darko to show you his signature in book of guests.
