Excellent food, stunning views and service. Marinko, our waiter, was an example of true hospitality- generous and friendly. He is a true professional who loves his job and genuinely cares about people. Kiana & Scott....Kaua'i, Hawaii

We spent 5 nights at Le Méridien Lav and each morning our breakfast was a delight. The staff were friendly and efficient and the choice of food was very good. Lovely local cheeses, meats, salads, grilled vegetables, lots of fresh fruit, freshly made yogurt, eggs cooked to order, honey from the comb, pastries, preserves and large selection of breads. A...

As a very frequent guest of Le Meridien hotels around the world, and knowing of their seafood buffets, I decided to try the Friday night seafood buffet in Podstrana. Unfortuneatley I have to say I was quite dissappointed with this one. A very very scarse selection was available, Its not becuase they don't have the space, most of the food... More

Buffet restaurant serving breakfast and dinner daily. Very large spread for breakfast including an omelette station. Lots of fresh fruit and bread available. Will please anyone. Dinner theme changes every night. Drinks are not included and can be pricey.

Sitting on the sun-deck in the shade of one of the large white umbrellas made breakfast a true treat. There is a wide variety of hot and cold items to choose from and coffee is limitless, along with the fresh fruit.

If you like buffet you should enjoy this! There was a good mix of foods all well cooked and fresh. We had plenty of fish (the octopus salad is very good as was the sea bass) and the kids enjoyed the meat. Apparently there is a children's buffet with burgers but we didn't see it. Good selection of starters, salads,... More

The buffet is "flat" or average in its content although quality is fine while being dull, the Oriental buffet being very poor in content while being only vaguely Oriental. The young staff need more training and struggle to clear tables especially at breakfast. Very little sign of any senior staff supervision

We arrived late and found out it was the night for Dalmation buffet. Fish was great – several kinds and the fish and meats were generally cooked right there and put in the warmer, so all felt quite hot and fresh. Octopus salad was one of the best we had on the whole trip. Pasta was overcooked (as was much... More

Best to sit on the terrace for both breakfast and dinner. Breakfast is average and coffee tastes awful.
