We went for a lunch on a sunday afternoon with our dog. We thought that we'll sit on the terrace because of the dog but the (I suppose it was) the owner invited us to sit inside and also bring water for our dog. The restaurant is settled in the basement of the building. The interior is very nice in... More

We have been recommended this place by a local, and it has been a wonderful experience ( both lunch and dinner). Both food and service were top notch, nothing like the disappointed review we red. The fire log in the dining room not only gives a magical touch to the atmosphere but it's been used to grill to perfection the... More

Everything was near to perfect except two things: the service and fact this place is actually in a basement. I won't even start to list the faux pas' the waiter made, but let's just say he wasn't the friendliest one around. Except for that - the menu is really rich, the food well made, and the prices very very friendly... More

We visited this restaurant in the old town of Labin a few months ago. Still I feel I have to write a review about it hoping the owner/manager will possibly read this and learn how the guests are treated. As this region – Istria – is so famous for its truffles we ordered monkfish with truffles for main course. It... More

A very typical (and large!!) Croatian Restaurant. A great location. I like it! :-) Typical Croatian appetizers, a great fish dish and a very nice atmosphere with a large fireplace in the middle of the restaurant.

It is always difficult to decide whether to take local istrian food or one of the standards. The local I would give almost excellent the rest very good and everything for a good price. Nice ambient and no complains to the staff.

I have to say our trip to Velo was our biggest disappointment of our stay in Croatia. Having passed through Labin several times, we wanted to eat here as it has a great location, and a pretty good TA record. sadly we were very wrong. The staff were, at best, dis-interested - preferring to fuss over a group of locals... More

The restaurant is located in the centre square of this historic town overlooking the fishing port of Rabac. We went to this restaurant as we had been disappointed in the eating establishments in Rabac, the restaurant had Beebe recommend by the receptions at the Adoral hotel in Rabac. Well we were not disappointed and had a great two course meal... More
