Delicious and friendly

We had dinner at thus quaint restaurant. The waitress was lovely and very accommodating to our desires. The food was speedily served and was delicious, especially the mixed grill plate. We were too full to experience dessert and will probably return before we leave pula to taste the pancakes.

Wandering through Pula, we noticed a number of people eating outside so went in on chance and was very glad we did. The inside was well appointed and felt very comfortable once we was seated. My wife and I had the calamari and a small portion of French fries. This was not the case of the calamari, the portions of... More

The service and prices at Orfej are both very good. Excellent location in the old city. Cannot understand the rave reviews. We had grilled Calamari that was boring, bland and uninspired. No spices whatsoever, just a little olive oil and some parsley for a garnish. Total disappointment. The seafood pasta tasted reasonably decent, but we could find no trace of... More

Stumbled on this restaurant on our third night in Pula and we ate there 3 times in a week. The food is superb, especially the Orfej Pizza, the sea bream and the fried calamari but all of it looked good, nice carafe of wine if wanted and they also serve great home made local beer which is brilliant. Very worth... More

We've asked some local people about good sea-food restaurant and we did follow the recommendation and was totally wrong! I am not surprised about food that they offer due to their price list, but looked like we would visit a restaurant deeply inside of the continent and not the one by the sea - they don't offer any fish except...
