This restaurant is a bit chic. The atmosphere is very comfortable. I ordered for me handmade pasta Istrian style with truffles that was very delicious.

The four-course fish tasting menu for 40 euros was very good and well balanced. It would have been nice to have a few vegetables included but what we ate was delicious and very professionally prepared. We didn't get the table we asked for (at the front end of the restaurant), but we were extremely comfortable at the back, and there... More
