Top List of Rab Restaurants

Island Rab has a wide and mixed range of restaurants and taverns.
The food on offer is mixed; mostly based on fish, seafood and pasta but also with a fair amount of good meat dishes. Prices are generally speaking similar; 100-120 Kn good meal or more for high quality dishes in an restoran or 60-70 KN in fast food pizza/pasta place.

I was looking for a solid restaurants/ taverns list where you can get a decent meal, with short descriprions. This is not a proffesional recension list, although it would be great if it becomes one soon, rather just a simple quick overview for passangers, with basic conntacts.
