This restaurant (sorry konoba) only got the fame, I think it is hugely overpriced compared to what else is on offer in this area. And at the end we asked for the check, the waitress said only cash.

I have been here many times, in fact I am here ad often as I can, and it has always been a great pleasure. They serve fish, without distinction between white or blue, cheap or expensive. The dishes served here are a fish experience rather than a simple meal. I am looking forward for me next visit.

Great chef with peace of each family member; very modest but warm place; dishes that surprised you ones, twice, all the time. Carpaccio, marinade, all kind of sea food.... and sweets, wow, hot, black chocolate, olive oil, chilli and pepper - extraordinary

We came in the restaurant around 4 pm after half an hour trying to find it, but was really disappointed with "welcome". Restaurant was open and empty, but they didn't want to serve us. The explanation was that they expecting lot of guests for dinner and they don't have that one fish for us. The "best" of all was that... More

This was the best or second best (can not decide) meal in Croatia. And we had a lot of very good ones. If you come to Istria and like to eat what the sea offers us, you have to come here. Only accept clients with reservation. You pay in cash. And is in a village near Pula. Leaving the practical... More

Quiet location, romantic view, friendly staff, the restaurant run by the whole family, beautifully presented food, excellent and imaginative starters and desserts. 10 minutes by car from the city center of Pula, but worth every mile. We drank local white wine, it was well chilled and nicely paired with fish or pasta. Tip: try fish carpaccio, fish tartare and Conger... More

I'm Russian, living in Croatia for 4 years. As I am a gastro-and-wine-maniac, this country is a heaven on Earth for me. And, for sure, Batelina is one the best restaurants, number one for me.
