We are visiting Konoba Istriana already few years and food was always excellent. Owner and his staff tried very hard to make our experience even better. If you are there outside high season, owner will prepare in fornt of you the best tartar we ever eat. It is quite a show to see how he mix all the ingridients. So... More

That's the reason we ate here. Like everyone else's experience, service was somewhat slow. We had the squid and meat platter, both atypical for the Istrian & Dalmatian coasts. Big portions doesn't make for better tasting food, which seems to be what most Konobas believe. The prices were decent, better than the hotel we stayed in, that's for sure. It's... More

Konoba Istriana is really an amazing experience. The food is great and the owner and his staff are very hospitable. They make each dish to order and use the freshest of ingredients. The gnocchi was fantastic as was the fresh fish. The wines were delightful and the owner even gave us a private wine tasting to help us better understand... More

We went there today for late lunch at 3 pm and we finished at 6 pm. The food was excellent, bacala is super. But the service is extremely but extremly slow, at the end we ordered tiramisu (not good) and we waited 30 min. Probably the best is to order just one dish.

We had a really nice meal here last night - my wife and I and our 2 kids ages 9 and 11. One thing we learned early on during our week here in Croatia is that things move slowly in restaurants, from getting a table, to ordering, to being served and paying the tab, so, RELAX and enjoy the foreignness...

Konoba Istriana is located in Pomer, approximately five kilometers from Pula centre. That nice, genuine konoba serves local specialties and fresh seafood. If you prefer sitting outside there is a nice and quite spacious terrace as well. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. My husband had cheese and meat selection as a starter and beef with truffle sauce... More

We were staing in Pula, and a friend recommended me this place. It was absolutely worth a visit even though it's a 15 min taxi drive away from the center. The food is just superb, and the staff (including the owner) are the best. After a great meal, the owner invited us to his office and offered us his own... More

Konoba Istriana is located in Pomer, a tranquil village some 10 minutes drive from Pula. The location of the restaurant makes it much more pleasant to eat here than in the busy Pula city center. Istriana serves great local specialties in genuine konoba environment. The outdoor seating is very cosy and the staff is very friendly, yet fast and professional... More

Konoba Istriana is easy to find (with a help of iphone maps) but it was also really clearly signed. We were sit by very spacious table near small flower bush. All waiters were very friendly and helpful and nice. A cold appetizer was very good, we have eaten anchovies with capre and red onion,served with local olive oil. Hot appetizer... More
