We found this place a nice walk from the the arch area. A short walk and entering the trattoria you felt like you came to the right place. It seemed like a converted house. The entrance opened to a bar area with a beautiful little courtyard with seating on one side and the "living room" where we were seated on... More

What I love is simple and hearty food that's well seasoned and prepared, and that's exactly what was delivered at Vodnjanka! The service was attentive and the dessert was delicious as well. It's a little ways out of the city centre, but with a car it was a quick drive. Our waiter even took the time to explain to us... More

Lovely octopus salad and grilled calamari. The location is wonderful too as it is next to an open plaza.

This place is a little out of town if staying in the centre, so easy to miss just walking past as well as it doesn't advertise itself much from the outside. Although when we turned up on a Thursday evening it was fully booked bar one table so it seems they don't need to! A little odd that the menu... More

A very unique family run business, you feel like you are at the heart of true Croatian cuisine. I'm pretty sure we were the only English there but were made to feel very welcome and the menu was clearly explained out to us both upon ordering and when the waiter brought out our food. A very calm and relaxed atmosphere.... More

We booked 3 days in advance for an evening meal on the advice of previous reviews. On the face of it the exterior entrance looks a bit off putting, however do not let this partially graffitied rendered facade deceive you! We were courteously shown through to the rear patio/ sun room which had a nice ambience. The room has a... More

Me and my boyfriend were advised by our taxi driver about this wonderful establishment when we enquired where we could experience some authentic local food in Pula. We are absolutely delighted that we were recommended Vodnjanka as it was the best meal we had throughout our entire stay. We arrived to a short menu of two options - Fish or... More
