“Not worth the recommendation”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

Recommended this restaurant by House Tina (which is very good) with the offer of free pancakes but the food was poor. Bread was stale, flies in restaurant and the veal was tough and chewy. Lasagne was okay but nothing special. Pancakes were very good but it didn't make up for an overall poor meal. Service was very good but atmosphere not great. Wouldn't recommend it.

Reviewed 18 July 2011

Grilled chicken was dry and tasteless; similar for grilled veal; mixed vegetables and french fries were from frozen. Ice cream was great !
Not a lot of choice, however in the area so make sure you eat with lots of wine !

“Good family restaurant with home-cooked style food, competent wait-staff, tasty food delivered hot”
Reviewed 25 June 2011

We ate here on the recommendation of our host, Ivan from House Tina where we stayed, with the promise of complimentary pancakes. We weren't disappointed. We had home-cooked soups to start, which were tasty and hot. I then had a Margherita pizza that would've satisfied 2 people - and obviously couldn't finish it, although I had a good go at it! Hot and delicious. Partner had Cevapcici; spicy minced meat rolled up into small sausage-shapes with tomato relish and chips, and said it was just like a home-cooked meal. Following this, and without asking, two pancakes with chocolate sauce were delivered. They were very nice.
Service was prompt, and food was delivered hot. Our competent waiter spoke good English and could explain everything on the menu. We paid about 150k - about 20E. Good value. They accepted our credit card. We had arrived around 7.30pm, and by 8.30pm it was packed so they opened the adjoining dining room. Takeaway pizzas were being ordered also.
The restaurant, which includes a hotel, is located in the village of Rakovika with many other B&B rooms available. Rakovika is a good jumping-off point to visit Plitvice Lakes National Park as it's only about 9km from there.
