“Very unpleasant restaurant”
Reviewed 24 June 2012

24 June 2012 - My wife and I chose this restaurant in Lumbarda from the local advertising boards.
We drove to the restaurant and finally found parking - not easy. We walked up to the restaurant and heard very loud music being played - not our style. The restaurant had no other customers.
The owner/waiter? stopped us as we turned away and said he would turn the music down - which he did.
We ordered wine. water and food.
We sat for a fair while and the shouting between the owner/waiter and someone in the kitchen got louder and louder. It was evident they were having an argument.
At the same time there was a very loud intermittent engine noise in the back of the restaurant.
Finally I could no longer take the shouting in the restaurant and spoke to the owner/manager and suggested to him that we were the only customers and we were looking for peace and quiet, and could they please stop the shouting.
He became aggressive and asked us to leave the restaurant. I said I was happy to pay for the small amount of wine and water we had drunk, but he refused to discuss anything and shouted that we should leave the restaurant and never come back.
We were very happy to do this.
I asked for the restaurant complaints book, which I understand is a legal requirement in all Croatian restaurants. He responded that he had no such book and had never had such a book.

we apologize for what happened, but I'm sure you've been asked also in another places to leave because of you behavior. My opinion is that you can't come in other people house and start yelling at them. We are not a disco or caffe bar where the music is loud. But you insisted to turn of the music which is not your right and of course, not to yell. Please do not spread lies any more (I'm not surprised) and until you start to behave good, please stay away of our restaurant. And to your honor, you're the first case like this. Thank you

“hidden gem, great fresh local Croatian seafood”
Reviewed 11 June 2012

We visited this restaurant in early june before the hight of the summer season. We didn't choose from the menu we asked the owner/waiter what he recommended, he brought out a bucket of that days catch, some lobsters and three large fish and said he could cook that and some garlic zucchini mash. The atmosphere was very relaxed, i chatted with the chef as he grilled our fish. When the dish came out it was amazing- drizzled with the restaurants own olive oil with plenty of fresh bread and their own Grk wine that Lumbarda is famous for. We had the best meal of our holiday here. It wasn't as cheap as other places but definitely worth it. Make an evening of this with a tour of a couple of the wineries in the same area and it will be the best day!

Poor service, long time before food is served.... The waiter did not have control on what we ordered. Don't bring your kids on this restaurant
