Taught by recommendations from the hotel and with Trip Advisor, we did not eat there, but the restaurant looks nice and clean, music decent and beautiful, the location perfect. What we did, and enjoyed it, the morning coffee by the sea. Service fast and friendly, good coffee, a real pleasure.

Close to many of the top hotels and easy to find. Prices a little expensive, but a fine location and very pleasant surroundings. Good selection of local and international dishes and good views from the restaurant.

While in Opatija had dinner last night at Vongola with table on the waterfront. Service was very good, and pasta with truffles was outstanding. Great view also and very reasonable. Highly recommend.

Vongola is located on the beach just by the sea, so has very nice view. The food is nothing special and mixed shells I ate the tasteless, small and with spicy sauce. Wine serving the glass is not cooled. I asked the head waiter about qualuty of food, and shells on the seaside should be better, he told me that... More

At this restaurant you are literally sitting in the sea. A few tables are just a few steps away from the sea but they have also a big inside dining area. The food was really good and we had a mixed grilled fish plate and it was so good and definitely worth the money. Nice view and great food. I... More

The place and the atmosphere was fascinating. The only problem was with the waiters. They were in a hurry and I can't tell them properly what I want. It was a little bit expensive but the look and the taste of the foods was very good.

We sat down for breakfast. It was rather far from what we expected. We ordered a cheese omelette and chocolate pancakes which were very blunt and flat. There was no salt and pepper offered, no bread was made available, no water was served and the coffee was not something worth mentioning. Definitely not a good score.

I really thought it would be better. The portions were extra small, we ordered a side dish that we didn't get, so we had to order it again (or be hungry...). When the bill came they charged us for bread that we didn't even get... Don't bother with this place, go a few meters across the road and have a... More

Good location by the sea,but nothing special. Average service,no water with coffee ( only if you ask for it),but coffe is good,because it is bazzara. What is really good are pancakes.
