To recommend. Fine cuisine, carefully prepared. The kitchen knows how to fuse the flavors in perfect experience on the plate. Pleasant staff and environment.

This was not our first expirience at Marina with Marina and this is the place where we will allways come back. Young chef Marina has a great talent and unlimited inspiration for creative and tasty dishes. We had 4 course lunch and I can't say which one was the best. Unfortunately since the tourist season is over and we came... More

We had wonderful food in lot's of restaurants in Istria during our two week holiday in August, however Marina stood out for us. We liked the concept of the no menu, as it was dependent on the catch of the day, and the excellent owner/waiter informed us that as we have come in later the scallops were now available, but...

We chose this restaurant on the recommendation of the Lonely Planet guide and we certainly weren't disappointed. There was no menu but we knew it'd be a 6 course tasting menu. We were actually the only customers on a Thursday evening but we were welcomed and had impeccable service throughout. It was all fish including some fabulous raw swordfish and... More

We went for dinner, the menu' is by the chef Marina, which delighted us with 6 different see food plates. Fantastic combination of fish and vegetables, cooked at high level of cuisine. Nice presentation and welcome interiors. Special blend of sea taste with spices and very skilled chef/owner. Impeccable service, (the flatwares are set down with the white glove!). Really... More

Everything was perfect. We graded our 4 course menu up to 6 courses after we had the first one. Thank god. We would have missed a lot. Service and winesuggestions were perfect too. We would drive far to eat here. For us the best place in Istria (and we ve seen other highranked restaurants)

First of our JRE restaurants in Croatia. Paid a visit during late spring 2016, we were offered a choice of menus. Opting for the 6 course menu (no classic menu available) we were pleasantly surprised with the combination of different ingredients that I was unaware you can fuse into a meal. Groceries all locally sourced and bought. Owners are head... More

One of my favorite restaurants 'cause is unpretencious, but still offers excellent, fresh, vibrant and tasty seafood. I must warn you many of the dishes are raw, just seasoned to perfection. I recommend you to let them choose the menu, which depends on the day. We ate 6 course meal and took wine pairing - it cost for the two... More

Marina is not a typical fish restaurant with grilled fish and calamari but the place where you will find a cuisine d' auteur. Our philosphy is to get the best out of the ingredients (fish) we can!
