This was our 2nd visit to this restaurant which is located on the beach front by the Adriatic Hotel...and a fabulous place to watch the sun setting over the Adriatic Sea...Jonny the host greeted us like old friends and showed us to our table. Everything thing at this establishment is locally sourced and Jonny is very proud to promote the Croation food and drink that is available.....and the food is cooked by his wife and a small team whilst Jonny manages front of house. This restaurant charges 228 kuna for a 4 course meal and the food is divine. We started with fresh mixed salad with stir fried roquette, local smoked ham. Paski chese olives fruit and toated nuts.......along with some of the freshest bread had in a long time with a dip of virgin olive oil and pumpkin seed oil. To follow we then had a creamy soup with Sauvignon,croutons and parsley which was amazing. After a brief respite the main course arrived.....Beef tenderloin with creamed broccolli and pickled shallots for me and Istrian pasta with a sauce comprising mediterranean herbs....grilled chicken breast and Gran Istriano cheese for my wife.........both of these dishes were superbly cooked and presented. Dessert was something special as it was my birthday.....a flambéed dish similar to a tiramisu and absolutely delicious.

Jonny helped in the decision of the wine and was very attentive although not intrusive throughout the visit and it was a pleasure to meet and thank his wife and her team at the end of the meal

I strongly recommend that if you are staying at the hotel that you pay a visit the The Gran Mare grill

We had dinner at Gran Mare Grill last week and we had the most perfect evening. The setting is unbelievably beautiful. All of the tables there get a fab view of the sunset which makes for a really romantic evening.

The man that served us for the evening was fantastic (sorry to not know him by name!). He was so polite and welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. He brought over fresh bread and gave us a bowl of olive oil and pumpkin seed oil to start. It was delicious! We'd never tried pumpkin seed oil before - it's grown locally in Croatia. We've now ordered a bottle of it so we can have it at home!

We had the set menu which was about 30 euros a head. It was 4 courses - all of which were great. I had the beef for main and would highly recommend it! The was also a huge choice of nice wine. We had a bottle of NZ Sauvignon which was better than many i've tried.

Overall we had the most perfect evening and it was the best way to finish off our holiday. Would highly recommend Gran Mare Grill to anyone!

Lovely warm welcome, and fantastic food. We arranged a birthday cake with them for my husband's 60th birthday and it was lovely. Couldn't fault anything and had a great evening.

We had booked this restaurant at the beginning of the holiday for my husbands birthday. The day before we decided to walk round to see it and bumped into the owner Johnny. Soon as he we told him we were coming over for a birthday dinner, Johnny changed all the plans and arranged for the moonlight dinner package which included oysters for starters, steak and a bottle of prosecco, this also included having a couples massage in the day which was lovely.

When my husband and I arrived at the restaurant we had a beautiful table laid out for us under a heart shape in the sand with the best sea views you could imagine. Johnny was very welcoming and friendly, he took several pictures for us and told us he had made a special request for the oysters that morning. The food was delicious and full of flavour, the sunset was to die for and we felt like we were the only two people dining on this beautiful beach. Johnny also brought out a beautiful traditional desert with a happy birthday message at the end. Yes it cost more than the extra you would have paid through the hotel but it was worth every penny. My husband had the best dinner and we are grateful for Jonny’s extra efforts to make his birthday so special and romantic for us!

We were staying in the All Inclusive hotel next door, but thought we would venture out for a little local hospitality. So glad we did. This restaurant is a lttle gem. Locally sourced food, beautifully cooked and served with love! Johnny and his staff were so friendly and made sure we had a great evening. Amazing food and in lovely location with the sea just a few yards away. Magical.
