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

Not one to vent my frustrations at a restaurant online but this has to be an exception! Agreed to eat in Bistro Barbara after speaking to the owners outside who described the menu well and promised us a good meal inside. Food was overall pretty disappointing, but after eating we paid the bill leaving a small tip and left. The... More

Family friendly, amicable restaurant - obviously popular with tourists and locals alike. I had probably the best Mussels I have ever had and my wife had a very tasty fish dish. Staff were very pleasant and the service highly efficient.

After relaxingthe whole day we wanted to have a nice dinner. Being new to Croatia and Pula we wanted to taste some of the highly praised seafood. Walking through the streets we were drawn to this restaurant because of the appearance it has from the outside. "Fresh Fish" drew our attention too! When we were seated, not the place we... 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.
