This is a lovely restaurant with excellent service, good wine and heavenly food. For the high level of service and cuisine, this is very reasonable compared to other nearby restaurants.

Japanese Restaurant Tekka
A fabulous restaurant, amazing food and a great atmosphere! The spring rolls are delicious as is the Sapporo sushi. The service is excellent with helpful and attentive staff. If you happen go at lunchtime the menu is delightful, serving fresh tuna sashimi which is amazing and their deserts are equally gorgeous too!
Ribice I Tri Tockice
This is a great affordable option to try local seafood. It is located within the centre of the city in a beautifully decorated space. Do try the homemade pasta with shells or grilled shark or shrimps. They do a gorgeous tuna pašticada (Dalmatian stew) and serve a very large selection of mouth-watering deserts.
El Toro Restaurant & Bar
This is a lovely ambient restaurant for lunch or dinner. A huge golden bull looms above the entrance which is visually very impressive. The food is excellent and modern with many interesting ingredients, so don’t expect traditional food. The food is amazing, the wine superb and the service is excellent with very helpful staff! The food could easily be served at a Michelin restaurant and the price is well worth it. However, it is more expensive than other local restaurants but you will not be disappointed.
Time Restaurant & Bar
A lovely place for lunch and dinner, the sushi is excellent and there was a very good variety. All the food is fresh and beautifully presented. The waiters are very pleasant and helpful. An absolute ‘must’ is to try their famous desserts, especially the chocolate and hazelnut surprise. The atmosphere is very relaxed making it really good to enjoy on hot summer nights.
This is a gorgeous and authentic restaurant with a cosy atmosphere. Professional staff will show you what fish is on offer and the selection of fresh sea fish and seafood specialties. The wine list is varied and interesting. The prices are quite high but well worth it. If you order a cake for desert – do be aware they huge!
