Ribice i Tri Tockice - © Matt Field/Time Out
Offering simple and affordable seafood for people who prefer their restaurants to be fun rather than formal, Ribice bases its menu on the less showy dishes that form the backbone of Dalmatian home cooking. On offer are many of the fish dishes that have disappeared from fancier restaurant menus (notably anchovies, bonito and hake), and fish is priced by the fillet rather than weight - so you can tell how much you are paying for your portion. Daily specials chalked up on a blackboard outside the entrance take account of what's fresh. The jolly interior features smart wooden tables, chairs painted in pastel blue and turquoise hues, and fishy murals by Vojo Radoičić, the Rijeka-based artist famous for his colourful seaside scenes. Waiters in Dalmatian red sashes and Adriatic folk-pop background music drive home the maritime theme.
