House suggestion were squids that's one of my favourites. Unfortunately were poorly fried and the batter was too soft and the squids hard to chew. White wine was really poor so can't say anything good.

We endend up in here after searching pula centre on sunday night for something to eat . A tough job as all the restaurants are the usual average tourist rubbish . We picked Barbara as best of bad lot , surprising though as our fish was lovely and fresh and excellently cooked. We had Seabass and dorado. Crisp skin, well... More

We had a fish platter, garlic bread to start, a carafe of Istrian white and 2 coffees. I predicted 300KN, my wife thought 400KN. Actual total 469KN. Good food but not worth that much.

Mixed fish plate and 2 drinks at 20 euro sounds like a bargain, but the only thing mixed was the size of the sardines. Maybe we were unlucky, but a big plate of grilled sardines is a bit disappointing when u expect a fish platter - especially in a harbour town.

In the main tourist drag in Pula, on the way to the Roman arena, offering much of the same same as all the other restaurants on the street. Same tacky chairs and shabby tablecloths even my Nanna would be' ashamed to take on a picnic . Same gaudy photos of badly presented dishes attempting to entice a hungry tourist inside.... More

Had the fish platter here...a huge platter containing 3 different whole fish, 2 squid, 2 langoustines, mussels, chips and potato with spinach. Unbelievably fabulous! The fish was superb - perfectly cooked with gorgeous crispy skin. We were welcomed with a free aperitif, the starter was freshly baked garlic bread and we had no room for desert. Everyone was very friendly... More
