No service when all tables are empty. Inflated ego chef. Maybe come back one day when he decides to be polite with guests who travel 300km for his fish_ dish.

We visited Batelina this weekend, the last day prior their annual 3 week vacation. This restaurant is really all about the sea, fish and other local stuff. As many comments said, do not expect high tech kitchen and some fancy dishes. Food is traditional. It’s basic. It’s from the heart of maestro David. And it’s superb! One of us doesn't... More

A visit of a friend from Japan encouraged me to drive some two hours for the Batelina experience for it was mentioned as a very good seafood restaurant at a Istria-guide. I called five days in advance to reserve a tabel at June 2015. All was booked out after 8 pm, they could only offer us a table from 6... More

I was there for tree or four times, last time one week ago and I have to say that these is one of the best restaurants I have ever been. The food is very special, they offer only fish and seafood, but on their way. They offer also a lot of very good desserts. The prices are ok for these... More

Great food, great place, great service unless it gets extremely busy, which it shouldn't really, as you need to book in. This is definitely one of the best seafood restaurants in Istria and one of the best along the Northern Med. I have been to. During high season and on weekends it is not easy to get a table booked,... More

This was one of the best foody expiriences I have ever had and tried out. Very skilled and extremely nice waiters with the food and wine that demands you eat it all even if you're far over the limit. Amazing.

As with many other reviewers here, we came after seeing Anthony Bourdain's programme. Luckily we did some research to find that you must have a reservation as they don't serve drop-in customers. Our waiter was very helpful and friendly and talked us through the options for the evening - they don't have a menu, just a selection of each days... More

We found this restaurant thanks to Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. The food was amazing and I tried things I would probably not have if I was ordering from a menu. The waiters basically advise you what are the best dishes of the day and we went along with it. I would certainly recommend and would go... More

As we live close by we visit Batelina quite often, as a matter of fact it's one of our favourite restaurants. The food is exquisite, the appetizers are splendid. Great genuine old-school sea food! Don't come here for fancy interior or posh service and don't forget to take cash with you (they don't take credit cards). I especially like coming... More
