It's good, has a fantastic view and there are quite a lot of beaches nearby. It really modern. The food here is great but it isn't the best in town.

Fancy & Romantic are the two words to describe this new restaurant. It is open already for few years but never losses his charm and character. Beautiful menu with all fresh products, excellent fish and meats. The large menu offer something for everyone...... Must try the seafood and a beautiful chardonnay from the local taverns. Price is in higher range... More

Wonderful setting by the marina. Fabulous seafood, good wine, unobtrusive but knowledgable staff. It's far from the cheapest place to eat in Pula and not close to the city centre. My wife and I thought it worth every Kuna though. Great lobster!

The restaurant itself is amazing-sea view and modern interior. Food wasn't what I expected- the fish was poor quality, wine was terrible and their "olive oil" was clearly imported (because it's cheaper and lower quality than local). Overall- the place has potential but it's not at a level that you would expect judging by their prices.

This is a very nice restaurant. The location is situated overlooking a marina. Their menu is limited, but nice. The help staff were very friendly and spoke English very well.

Not a bad place to try if you want to overlook the marina area, it is quite nice to look at. The food is expensive for the area and service was just average. Nothing special here, with exception to the view, other than that, there are plenty of other sea food places down town for better prices and service. If... More

The place has good atmosphere, good service and great food, but is a little on the pricey side. I had grilled fresh fish (Sea Bass) it was excellent. We had some excellent Istrian wine. The place was packed the night we were there, but service did not suffer.

We had really high hopes for this restaurant. It was our last night in Istria and we wanted a nice dinner. This was probably the worst meal we had in 4 weeks for travelling through Europe. We were the only ones in the dining room aside from a couple families celebrating a special occasion, and letting their screaming 3-4 year... More
