Restaurant Ribarska Koliba (Fisherman's Hut) - the Sleeping Beauty has awaken after a hundred year's sleep and has become a favourite destination for lovers of gastronomy and fine wines. Surrounded by pine woods on one side and the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic from the other, Ribarska Koliba is something of a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. The roof of the restaurant has been transformed into a Lounge Bar with magnificent views of the marina and Verudela Bay. During the day it's a great spot to relax in the gentle breeze enjoying the calm surroundings and atmosphere. In the evening it's a place to gather with friends, sample the wonderful choice of cocktails, enjoy live music and so much more.

Great location, not so great service or prices

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... read 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

I've been to Ribarska Koliba several times in past few years. Despite the fact that it was always busy there, the food and service was quite good. They have big Adriatic squids which are delicious, as well as fresh fish, of which I would specially recommend seabass. The view from the venue is beautiful, we were always situated by the... More

We went here on our last night in Istria for a celebratory dinner...and wish we hadn't. Even McDonalds would have been better. After over an hour there was still no sign of our orders...when asked the waiter said - but you ordered 10 different things!! We were only 7 at the table and three were children so not quite sure...

Well located restaurant with nice marina view. We tasted fish soup, minestrone soup, pene with smoked tuna. Everything was beyond our expectations. Also don't miss the fresh fish plate. Malvazia (withe wine) is the best I have ever tested in Histria. If you go there with little kids they will propose multicolored pencils and so on.

Visited here twice as was close to the hotel (you can book online which is really helpful) first time we had the fish platter which was great. Starter of Scallops was disappointing, I ordered 3 and only 1 small one came out (maybe they had ran out but should have said) only billed for one though. Waiter filleted all the... More

We were stopping at the Histria Park Plaza, and this restaurant is just a short walk away. We actually used the tripadvisor app to search for the best restaurant locally, and this one seemed the best. The app showed us the way with walking directions and within a few minutes we arrived. The app's advice wasnt wrong. We were given... More

Me and my girlfirend were in Croatia for 10 days. We ended our journey in Pula. Someone told us about Ribarska Koliba and we went there to eat and drink something. An amazing restaurant and lounge bar, very friendly staff and last but not least, GREAT live music. We were so privileged to listen young acoustic duo Loose. They sing... More
