This restaurant located at outmost corner of the port, where not many people walk by is amazing! The service was great, the food was full with pure and delicious flavors. We had seafood salad, scampi risotto, scampi pljukanci and grilled scampi's. All dishes were delicious! This restaurant is 100% worth trying!

Girica

Girica tavern is located in the western part of Rijeka, and is a good choice for those who like simple fish dishes. It offers exclusively fish and at the very same place you can buy fresh fish daily.

Wonderful food, all incredibly fresh and beautifully cooked. They only cook what they've caught so, of course, cannot always have everything that's on their menu. It seems that a few of the more negative reviews on here are from people expecting everything, all the time. Fresh food doesn't work like that.We were told exactly what they had and chose a variety of things from that - a mixed dish. Which was just wonderful and very reasonably priced for the quality. The octopus salad was stunning and also incredibly fresh. Go here, it is very worth it.

Home made pasta, steaks and on occasion horse steaks on offer, including seasonal ingredients (i.e. asparagus or truffles) make the menu, in generous quantities.This place changes very little over time which is good. Ambient is really minimalistic and always quite packed with locals.Do not expect a Michelin or JRE contender but a meal that will fill the need.

Was recommended this restaurant and it didn't disappoint. Had the fuzi with truffles and they were delicious. Excellent service. The restaurant is in a suburban area, follow the signs from Trsat, it takes about 10 minutes to walk from the bus terminus, or the castle and church. Well worth the walk if you haven't got a car.
