Although in the middle of nowhere this restaurant is pretty charming,old furnished,nice and clean. Food unfortunately was a big disappointment:pasta was too hard to chew,opposed to mushrooms which were overprepared and slimy to eat. Meat was ok,like anywhere else,but side dish was skimped on.

Nice, cozy place serving amazing dishes with truffles and fuzi/pljukanci..and a perfect steak, so soft that it melts in your mouth. Definitely, a must go and try on your own. Also, very nice staff..

Delicious food with truffles is their specialty. Steaks were magnificent. Friendly stuff and a good service. Cosy atmosphere with open fire. Better to make reservation before going. Our friend recommended to visit Malo Selo and we will return for sure.

Dear Sir, sorry about inconvenience related with your visit to Malo selo, but you must read this. On thet date when you were there in Fratria, this family had a death case, the owner of the restaurant Neda Marusic (the mom) died. The entire family was not thinking that day about konoba and note about that still wasn't online. My apologies in that name. last thursday they re-opened konoba and i'm sure that the family will give their best to continue the name and tradition that mamma Neda started. I'm a close friend of the family and i'm asking you to remove this comment because the situation wasn't pleasent at all, Afterall they'we just had funeral in family and cooments like this aren't helping in situatuion they have. As well once when you are back in Istria, reservate a table on their mail on website. I'm sure you will see why guests tehre arw like family (know from my experience). And as they say, third is a luck. Thank you in advance, Filomena

I agree that there may have been some organizational problem this past summer, due to the sudden death of Neda, as reported by Filomena. I heard about it while I was in the area in August and felt very sorry for the family... More
