Above title is probably in short, the best detail of "Lanterna". A nice, modern family run restaurant located at the touristic path, above the beach, but there is no view once you are inside. This, I might say is the only disadvantage of this restaurant. Visited place with my wife yesterday for... read more

We ate here on several nights and the fish was always very good, really fresh and perfectly cooked. We also had some of the best and largest scampi we have ever had. They were expensive but well worth it.

The restaurant as the terrace look really nice. Waiters are friendly. Price - quality isn't great, or perhaps we shouldn't have ordered fried fish and rocket salad....

Very good rissotto nero di sepia, grilled scampi and fresh fish. Best lunch we had in Croatia. 30€ with wine.

All this part is very nice, because is not full of houses (yet) and has very nice view. We weren't eating here, but twice we had coffee (and dessert) and it was ok.i know they offer some fish dishes, but can't say about them.I can say just that one house before, there is also a restaurant, with mostly the same...

Restaurant is next to the lighthouse and has a beautiful view on the sea. The view is the key and, unfortunately, the only asset of the establishment. Kitchen seems inadequately small for the size of seating area. It took forever to wait for the grilled vegetables, and the place was only about 1/3 full at the time. Ventillation is not... More

We accidentally came to the restaurant Lanterna, but it was a really nice surprise for us. Their fried and grilled calamari are fantastic, but I recommend more the grilled ones :) The staff is kind and fast. It was nice to sit on the fresh air next to the sea and enjoy the tasty lunch. The prices are reasonable in... More

About 45 seconds after the salads were delivered here came the main course of sea bass in a scampi sauce for each of us as... More

Been thare a couple of time with my friends and family. The restaurant is very good if you like to eat seafood. One of the restaurants I would recommend visiting when staying in Pula.
