It was the only day we could make it to the Plitvice Lakes National Park, however it started raining just as we were nearby.  So the only choice we had was to have a lunch and wait till the rain goes away.  This was a cafe full of visitors like us, finding a shelter while waiting.

I have read some really bad comments regarding this restaurant.  I personally do not think it was below average, you cannot come here and expect fine dining or have high expectations since it is near the park itself.  The pizza was absolutely amazing and I came from Italy to Croatia just a week ago.  The crust was crispy and lots of cheese, they were very generous with the toppings too. Degenija Pizza consisted of mushrooms, bacon with a raw egg on top with lots and lots of sour cream!  I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for some Italian or just pizza.  don’t have high expectations especially you are inside a tourist attractions.  Prices are affordable!

Would I go back again? Yes if it starts raining again
