We have visited Blu three times recently: twice for dinner, once for lunch. Pleasantly surprised each time. First time, fish ion parchment & lamb risotto. Excellent! Second time: no reservations (mistake!) but staff took care of us...added us to a large group on fixed menu. Again, excellent: tagliatelle with wild asparagus and shrimp, followed by roast duck over lentils, duck... More

We arrived the hotel 9:30pm & no choice but to eat there. The restaurant recommended we take the catch of the day but did not expect to pay kuna 320 per fish portion. It was expensive

We visited this restaurant in April 2017 and we were a bit apprehensive since the reviews were just so-so. Well, we were pleasantly surprised. We knew the view and atmosphere would be good but we were thrilled to have great service and tasty food. Maybe Blu has a new chef? I don't know why past reviews were so bad but... More

We had a dinner here recently. The location was spectacular, and the service was very good. The food was above average but the cost was way out of line for the area. We had four fresh fish meals with a very bland sauce, appetizers, one bottle of wine, a couple beers, and a couple glasses of white wine. The final... More

Ate at Blu 4 years ago and it was the best calamari ever.went again a week ago but it seems the chef had moved on.The service was efficient but the food very ordinary eg.focaccio served with a scoop of tuna mayonnaise.Risotto is expected to be al dente but it was really casually undercooked.and battered and deep fried sardines was indigestion...

Two feet in the sea, fresh-fruity malvasija on the palate, eyes flooded with a gorgeous sunset over an enchanting ocean view scene sprinkled with the echoes of medieval mercantile vividness on a peninsula towered over by an assertive campanile, accompanied by naval chords of an anchoring brig a few yards away, incoming boats and the steady pulse of a lighthouse...

Location is fantastic, but food is way too expensive for quality offered (> 200 EUR for 4 main dishes and a bottle of wine). Service is also very moderate.

They try but it's obvious that service is not trained to work in a good restaurant.... The food was disappointing and not to mention - only that I hope they throw the cold tuna away cause it was close to "best use"- day. It is true that sometimes Croatian cuisine is missing some herbs and spices but a little bit... More
