Everything in this restaurant was excellent. Welcome by the staff and the chef when we arrived, atmosphere, service, smell of food in the air... everything. This is one of those top quality family restaurants with brilliant chef and fresh sea food. Best fish meal i'we ever had. Unfortunately i was there only once :-( But will visit again next time...

We are big travelers, we travel around the world and been in a many excellent restaurants, Konoba Batelina is on the top of the list of great seafood restaurants. You can not beat the freshness of the fish and quality of cooking for the price they charge. Make sure to bring cash, since they do not except credit cards. Follow... More

We had heard a lot of positive feedback about this see food restaurant, and the experience was a culinary highlight - the service is genuine, no menu, everything explained at the table. The selection of starters was amazing, especially the in octopus salad (with egg and not potatoes), the pasta and shellfish simply divine! Yet the main course, a variation... More

Wonderful fish 'trattoria'. Family run business from the sea right to the table. Fish specialties based on the catch of the day they catch themselves. Not your average trattoria with sushi from local fish, fish liver, local bottarga etc. Nice ambience outside. Very friendly people and had a nice evening. If I were to change anything it would be the... More

Having been to Batelina seven years ago I fell in love with it. It was a humble family run restaurant with wonderful food and great atmosphere. Fame has clearly gone to the chef's head. Food has become run off the mill and service terrible. This is all about the chef's ego and no longer about simple, fresh home made food.... More

A taxi driver mentioned this restaurant to us, but said we might struggle to get a reservation. We immediately rang (on a Monday) and were offered a table on the Wednesday which was perfect. This is a small cosy restaurant with charming staff. The food served is what has been caught that morning. We started with a mixed selection of... More

My boyfriend and I, visited this restaurant because of a friends recommendation when they were visiting Pula. They talked so well about the restaurant, that as foodies, we decided we had to go to this restaurant. I made a reservation a month ahead. Konoba Batelina didn't dissapoint! It was a little hard to find, since there aren't signs on the... More

We went to this place because of recommendations. We drove an our from our hotel with high expectations. We liked the main metal door with the fish design in it and started smiiling. We met the people who seemed very friendly and were seated. The chef came out to greet us and also seemed very kind and friendly. Our waiter... More
