Cena di pesce

I've been to this place for a dinner with friends. You can reach it 15 minutes by car from Pula. The atmosphere is nice both outside and inside, especially inside, where the furnitures are quite typical. We have been there on purpose to eat fish, so all the three of us have taken ravioli with... read more

Everything about this place is worth its 5 points! The kitchen cooks a fantastic meal and the service is super friendly and helpful with any questions we had about the menu. We can only advise anyone to try the 'More u padeli" (or "sea in padela")!

First restaurant in Croatia and i'm not impressed with fish quality. Half of the mixed seafood pieces are de-iced and it isn't as cheap as you would expect. Possibly meat dishes are fresher and better in Croatia?

I've been coming to Premantura for a summer vacation for three years in a row and I always come back to this place! Cosy atmosphere,friendly staff and a large variety of dishes. I would highly recommend octopus baked "ispod peke", however,you have to order it in advance,since it needs a bit more time for preparation.

Konoba Istriana was our first restaurant experience in Croatia, and we were not disappointed. We went there for lunch following a morning in Pula. It took a bit of driving to get there, since it is outside Pula in the countryside - but it was worth the effort. We ordered octopus salads, and two very large seafood platters for the... More

Went to Konoba Istriana again, of course had to try the truffle cheese again. Since our last visit they have change the cheese provider; the cheese now comes from the island of Pag, a place famous for its sheep cheese. The taste is delicious, aged sheep cheese with hints of truffle.... A must try

Very nice place, good food, but very slow service. Fair price, sea food was fresh and tasty, pancake was a bit small ;) but very good. Recommend this place however prepare for a bit longer dinner due to the slow service.

Just came back from a weeks stay in Pomer and we came here twice. We were a party of 11 but the service was really quick and the food was great - the best in Pomer which is why we went twice. Only regret was not being organised to order the specials cooked over coals, you need to give 24... More
