On the first floor of our residence is our restaurant, Astoria, which is located above the main square of Rab. A breathtaking view on the harbour and the boulevard of Rab can be observed from the restaurant’s terrace. Our menu is oriented around the history of this building and the old town of Rab. We mainly use regional and ecological ingredients, such as fish and vegetables from the island and spices from our garden.

By night you can experience Rab`s nightlife directly from our terrace. This Coffee-bar lies in the heart of Rab.
