Amazing fish platter

Stumbled upon this restaurant looking for a place to eat. From all the other offerings they managed to lure us in. We had an amazing fish platter which the kids started to eat from as well after they had finished their pizza's. Service could be a bit better, and a few miscommunications on what we... read more

We were charmed by the waiter who spoke Dutch so we tried this restaurant. This was one of the worst dinners of our Holliday in Istria. As first meal we took the salmon Carpaccio. This was very sad: we only get a few pieces of salmon and a bunch of salad and some olives. That's all, so no tomatoes, etc.... More

Barbara looks like any of the other bistro cafe's along Kanderova, its fairly large and was busy so we went in for lunch. Between us we had a Hawaiian Pizza, Carbonara, 2 burgers, some fries and a plate of mussels as well as drinks. The carbonara and pizza came about 10 minutes before the burgers and mussels, both were fine... More

We chanced upon this restaurant when the server enticed us in--his name was Vanya and he immediately sensed our group speaking English and able to joke.Some of our friends were from Israel and Vanya was able to speak a few key words in Hebrew. The sea bass was outstanding as was the chicken dish another friend ordered.One couple ordered the... More

Fresh market fish was lovely and kids loved the pasta and risotto. Good staff but cash only which I'd have preferred to know beforehand.

Having wandered through the old town of Pula, we decided to eat at Barbara, great welcome from the owner and waiter, we had a fresh sea bass which was excellent, however when it came to paying the bill which was by far the most expensive we experienced during the week in Pula we were advised that they did not initially...

We showed him the pink again and he agreed it was not properly cooked. Not untill then where we offered a new meal. We reclined... More

We were not pestered by staff trying to persuade us to eat there - which for us is always a good sign. We were able to choose where to sit and shared a seabass for two which was prepared (once cooked) at the table for us. We also had the local Mangold and vegetables. Our wine glasses were regularly topped... More

We were ready for good seafood and good seafood was definitely delivered! We tried the prawn and muscle plate for two, and it was cooked in a nice red sauce. We tried a fried plate with calamari, shrimp, crab, and sardines. I asked if they served black risotto, which was on my list of things to try and although it... More
