Excellent authentic experience

We chose this restaurant (based on Tripadvisor reviews) for a family holiday evening out, needing a night off from hotel buffet blandness. The location and exterior is nondescript, down a residential street with only a small sign. Do not however be deterred - this is a real gem of a place, with... read more

I have to say that we came unannounced and there was no free table. Fortunately one couple didn't show up so we had to wait a few minutes and eventually the table was ours. Thanks guys for reservation! Now few words on meals... Their menu is simple. It has two offerings, you can choose between meat meal and see food... More

Petar our guide from a previous tour is a waiter at this restaurant and encouraged us to come for dinner on our last night in Pula. Whilst it was a bit of a hike from our hotel we made a booking a we were certainly glad we did. A bustling little trattoria with an inside dining room and a garden... More

Vodnjanka - Trattoria is only a 10 min walk from the main centre of Pula and really worth the trip. We visited on a Sunday, we were lucky to get a table as all the others had reserved signs on them. The menu on a Sunday is a 3 course fish or meat selection, we had 1 of each and... More

The pasta with Istrian cattle... More

We ate fish menu and it was very good, however, I wouldn't call it excellent. The service was excellent. We got, for example, information about the types of soils Istrian vineyards have and tips on ´how to select good local wines. The price was maybe a bit higher than the average in Pula.

We went there on a recommendation from a local, and it was everything we expected and more! The food was amazing, great recommendations from the wait staff, and service was impeccable. Cannot say enough about it- a must stop for anyone going to Pula on vacation!!!

We recommend Vodnjanka to all of those who wants to taste most popular homemade Istrian specialities based on seasonal and fresh ingredients. We love it and we appreciate Vodnjanka's effort to maintain high range of quality and creativity in the frame of tradition. Nusa&Mario
