Local cuisine served with pride

great food and slow thoughtful service. Dining is a 3 hour pleasure. The fish and seafood is imaginatively prepared with only local ingredients.

Don't let the location of the restaurant mistake you; by far the best seafood in Pula. It's not just the food.. It's the wines, atmosphere, hospitality and kindness of the staff as well that makes this place as a great experience. Fish is super fresh, tasteful and well cooked and presented. Highly recommended!

Good looking food :) and very tastey. No Price is for this type of food surprisingly good. I would give him 5 star if the bill was 30% higher. Little bit out of town, but definitely worth the hustle.

Great food no menu. Fresh daily ingredients fishermen caught. Interesting recipes they come up with that day depending on the catch.

An incredible dining experience. Combining flavors and ingredients that you wouldn't normally think go together into a party in your mouth. I've been to countless Michelin star restaurants all over the world and most of them can't even begin to touch this place. Don't even get me started on the price. Two apps, two entrees, desert and drinks for $45?... More

We have never had such a wonderful food- and we are travelling a lot and dining out in restaurants is our passion. It was Easter and we ordered young goat with potatoes, very traditional Easter meal. It was served in a modern and contemporary way with potatoes and some sauce. The taste was just delicious- unsurpassed. It was melting and... More

We are spanish and we appreciate the good food so we wanted to try the real croatian gastronomy. In our visit to Pula, the owner of the appartment recommended us Farabuto, as a place with traditional food prepared in a modern way. The place is not in the city center and it was a little difficult to find but it... More

Don't let the location of this restaurant fool you..once found, it is absolutely worth the 30min walk from the city centre. Once you walk up to the restaurants youll probably still not be convinced but wait until you order yours first plate of food. This in combination with the excellent service and knowledge of the waiter. Local tradittinal food against... More
