4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 June 2014

Execellent food at exceptional price. Also restorant ambienet is wonderfull and service is good, too.
Only downside no credit cards are accepted, which rules Karlo out for most foreign traveleres, especialy business lunch or diner.

“Great and little restaurant. Few steps from maim square”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We were walking by and we saw windows with candles and bottles of wine so we were curious and walked in. And we not dissapointed. Great service, nice and romantic atmosphere and delicious (tasty) food. GREAT combination of flavours.
You can also try Croatian wines and you can ask bartender to recommend you wine which will perfectly go with your main dish.
We will come back ASAP!

“pretentious, bad price-quality ratio”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

The food was average and the portions were very small. The chef obviously thinks that making a carrot cream and serving it as a side dish automatically categorizes a restaurant as a pinnacle of gastronomy. We had sea bass fillet for main course and it wasn't even properly filleted (I found about 8 or 9 bones in it). Besides that, the 'couvert', which was charged 15 kunas (2 euros) per person, was really miserable and consisted of half of strawberry with some sprouts. At the end I found out that they don't even take cards. Overall experience was bad and I walked out feeling cheated because I paid about 20 euros per person for a 3 course lunch after which I was still hungry. Even worse, I felt bad because as an amateur chef I can cook all those meals better and for about a tenth of a price.
