This upscale seafood restaurant has a glassed-in terrace for winter dining, something of a novelty here by the sea. The splashy menu—somewhere between traditional and avant-garde—changes with the seasons and the whims of the proprietors. Voted the second-best restaurant in the country by a national newspaper, Le Mandrac is Kvarner's bid to put itself on the gastronomical map. Expect dishes like prawn ravioli in tomato and cardamom sauce and octopus salad with pumpkin pesto.

If fish is your favorite food then this restaurant will be a taste heaven for you. My wife and I enjoyed some good food during our week in Croatia and Le Mandrac was our best overall experience. The stand out thing is they differ menu wise from most others, ingredients are similar but the style is modern with slightly unusual combinations. The chef has created some award winning dishes, we especially loved his Fritatja (spelling?)

We have to dine here every time we are within reasonable driving distance, although my husband being the driver, never gets to enjoy the excellent wines. The stand out thing about Le Mandrac is the menu, dishes served in new ways, yet solely derived from local fresh ingredients. The waterfront setting enhances the pleasant ambience of the restaurant and the service is all one expects. One of a kind.

The Gault-Millau Restaurant Guide has been consistently good for us over the years. For this reason, we decided to have dinner at Le Mandrac, which was given the highest points in Croatia this year. As there was four of us, we decided on the fish/seafood sampling menu. This way, we enjoyed the full experience. The cooking is innovative and the chef is certainly intent on trying new things. Service was fine and the waterside setting is atmospheric.
