Really great food and wonderful ambiance. Our waiter even brought and example of some of the foods we had questions about to help us decide. Beer was wonderful.

My wife and I were lucky that we made a reservation in advance for dinner at Bistro Francesca. It is located in the center of town but has a very private setting. The restaurant is romantic but is also good for families. But what is amazing about Bistro Francesca is the food. The seafood is extremely fresh and the pasta... More

Second time in Baška, we found this a little bit hidden place after visiting four other restaurants and I can say, this is real Nr. 1. And not just because Croatian cuisine is a little bit boring, but because they are really very good. We had great fish soup, excellent and surprising black risotto with sea food and plums and...

We had a dinner for two at the end of our holidays in Croatia. The restaurant is located in an inner street of Baska downtown; it's not on the seafront, but the beautiful ambience doesn't make you feel you miss the sea view. You seat under a nice pergola, in a small courtyard, sheltered from the ever-blowing wind of Krk,... More

Nice romantic place, nice personnel, good wine and tasty specialities. Excellent beefsteak in red wine and honey (a little too sweet!) tuna steak, island lamb with honey (too sweet!) and aromatic herbs. Tasty garlic soup. Hidden among houses away from crowd and noise. Excellent in sunny or windy days.

Beautiful courtyard setting. We were lucky to get a place outside after we left our phone number with a waiter and he called us as soon as a table become available. Great food and service!

The atmosphere, service and quality of food was excellent! Tried tuna steak with polenta and an apertizer (unfortunately I forgot what was it exactly ~ some ravioli) and that was amazing! Really! We had big luck, because there was a free table, but I recommand to make reservation!
