I had a spectacular meal there, one of the best I had anywhere on my three-week vacation through the Balkans. But I didn't order espresso.

I recall sitting on a lovely patio right on the water, great food, wine, service and the company of my beautiful wife and daughter. A splendid afternoon. The prices are on the menu, so I don't understand reviews such as this (which you have posted all over the Internet). This is a great well situated restaurant with prices to match. If it exceeds your budget, dine elsewhere.

Your exchange rate is off. I'm seeing about €3 for 80 kn.

80 kunas is about 10.75 euro. That's a spendy drink, but full disclosure (listed in the menu) combined with location and ambiance personally rated as top drawer, then indulge yourself.

Its one of those places where pretty waitresses lure you in, then trick you into drinking too much overpriced espresso.

You become alert to the price of your espresso after ordering and consuming it as caffeine must be ingested for effect.

Peter, for whatever reason, that website defaults to Czech currency even though you set it to Croatian Kuna (so it gives you an erroneous answer). Use another converter like https://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/

At that price for a simple espresso, the restaurant deserves to be called out, and at least made fun of, for the sheer pretentiousness of charging that much for something that costs 2 EUR all over Italy (major tourist traps exempted). No amount of atmosphere or water views makes up for a ~ 11 EUR espresso. Restaurants already mark up alcohol. You can argue that superb food and service deserves some kind of premium. But do they really need to mark up the coffee by over 400%? Reminds me of the $6 Whole Foods asparagus water (don't watch this if John Oliver offends you..https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R9gGL1cnnhg)

Apparently James, you're not the only slow learner around!

Why not just picket the place until they are forced to shut down? Jeez, nobody forces anybody to pay outrageous prices. Just don't go. But papering the Internet with negative reviews of a pretty good restaurant based on this? That's the reason most of us who enjoy fine food ignore those reviews, positive or negative.
