Very local and friendly restaurant. My husband and I went there a little bit late for dinner (at around 830 pm) and most of the items we wanted to order are already sold out/ not available. Nevertheless, the waiter recommended us different dishes and are very delicious. The starter (the platter) is a must try, it contains everything fish from... More

My husband and I visited this place based on the good reviews on Trip Advisor. I was told that you must have a reservation as they don't serve drop-in customers so I booked on time. This is definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in Istria. Our waiter recommended the best dishes of the day and we went along with... More

excellent preparation of the daily catch. Wine pairing would enhance the taste of various rarely found sea dishes.

PROS: the service was outstanding and food just marvelous - no wonder this is one of the best restaurants in Istra. prices are ok. CONS: cash only :( unfortunately, there are huge number of places on Croatian coast where they still refuse to accept credit cards. and all that just because of 1-3% provision... oh, what a shame.

Delicious seafood of all kinds. we were especially happy with the selection of appetizers which allowed us to taste new and interesting dishes. It was an elegant experience and... More

If you want to experience an authentic Croatian taverna, than this is the place to visit. Equipment is simple, typical Croatian taverna, with red and white tablecloth. The restaurant has a terrace surrounded by tall trees. Inside the restaurant, you will find a fireplace which heats up the restaurant. Food is prepared simply. The main ingredient is freshness. Fresh fish,... More

I adore eating so as people were saying its a nice place I decided to go. But the first impression was horrible. The place is ugly (they could reconstruct it with the prices they have), the services was...well there was no service and the food we eat was fresh but nothing special. So huge price for the food that you... More
