We found this place quite by chance and as sometimes happens when you least expect it, you come across a real gem! We were very tired and hungry having just walked the length of the Lungomare. The the gentleman waiter and chef were very pleasant and patient while we cooled down and made up our minds to have the dish... More

A restaurant with excellent atmosphere, very kind service, very delicious food, nice sea view and decent prices. We ordered an octopus "brudet" and octopus salad. Both were very tasty. And did I mention the local red wine?

There are many places in Lovran to take lunch or dinner but Bellavista is the TOP LEVEL. Delicious and always fresh sea goods, tasty local wines, Peter and his team let you feel like at home, highly recommended.

Excellent, locally caught fish and seafood, great casual staff and service, acoustic blues music in background. Great view of the sea and the marina. White wine "malvazija" on menu.

Built into the old city gate, this place served fresh seafood, with a lot of fuss or adornment -- just as it should be when the product is fresh and tasty. The view out to the marina is a delight. The staff was friendly and helpful. The head waiter went out of his way to explain (and demonstrate) some things... More

After trying some other restaurants in Lovran and also in Opatia, we went for the last dinner to this restaurant and we regretted why we did not find it earlier! the waiter was a friendly, polite person and he served us to the best. We ate far more than we could as the dishes are really large and we enjoyed... More

A lovely place with a nice view of Lovran's sea. Risotto with seafood has more seafood than risotto...exquisite. Every fish-based dish we tried has been satisfying. The main waiter is a very nice (and fast) guy.

Ate here with a fixed menu provided by our tour group. It was listed as a light dinner. Started with a nice vegetable soup and a mushroom and risotto appetizer. The accompanying red wine was very nice. The main course was a spaghetti dish with vegetables and a truffle sauce. I did not care for it at all, but the... More

We were staying in Lovran and were desperately trying to find a proper place to eat dinner, so we spotted this place and decided to explore how exactly beautiful this view is. And we were not disappointed. So, we were curious about the food, then... It was asparagus festival, so we had to try something with it. Food portions were... More
