The place is hard to find and the working hours are a bit strange but the food is excellent and the prices are reasonable. Great place to fall in love with traditional and affordable Istrian cuisine.

This is a simple family conducted restaurant or maybe its better to call it "osteria". The food is delicious home made stuff, it reminds me of my grandma kitchen. If you go there try boskarin meat, or some calamari. The chef waiter is a very pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended!!!

I have given this place an average rating but it is a little bit better than that, though not near a very good rating. This is home cooking brought to the restaurant table, it has lots of pasta and quite heavy sauces and not enough dishes on the lighter side. Very much a winter destination.

Vodnjanka is my favourite trattoria in town, a temple of real Istrian cuisine! Don't miss the homemade cakes made by Moris!!!

Just to clear something up. Vodnjanka is not a brand name. It just means a girl from Vodnjan. The restaurant in Vodnjan, so far as I know, has nothing to do with the one in Pula. They just happen to both go by the same name. The one in Pula is like having a meal cooked by your favourite grandmother.... More

We went as a group and first time round we had dinner in the roof terrace with fabulous views of the sunset over the rooftops. The house wine was fabulous and us... More

We went to this restaurant due to great recommendations in our Lonely planet guidebook and were not disappointed. It is a short walk from the city center to that neighborhood restaurant, which was full of local people and no tourist trap. They served great Croatian food to reasonable prices, and we had some of the best flavored dishes on our... More

There are two Vodnjanka, one at Pula and one in Vodnjan. My rating is for the one from Pula. The one from Vodnjan the rating would be more than excellent. If you come to Vodnjanka the meal you must is "njoki sa gulašom" and the desert (any) made by Loris. Often they have fish like "sipice na salatu" or similar... More
