Nice Dinner

Food is pretty good here. Some proper cooking here which is not the case in a lot of restaurants in Pula. Had pork stuffed with plums. Would recommend.

A few food mixups, bad cooking, had different recipes for the same dish, of which most were terrible, and a nice ambient.

Bistro Americano is a small restaurant hidden behind the temple of Augustus at the old town square “Forum” in the ancient city of Pula. You might have to look for it but I guarantee it is worth the effort. The menu is different form all the restaurants in the neighborhood and the name is daring, far from the first association...

The atmosphere of this bistro is very nice. The service and staff are so kind that you feel yoursef in a family atmosphere. We like here so much so we have been there 3 times in 4 days. Each time we were pleasant with our dish. The price is also reasonable.

As recommended by the seller of the boutiques we visited the newly opened restaurant Bistro Americano in Pula, Croatia. The remarks about the unfinished interior completely ignored because of the wonderful food and drink. We ate sea bass on grill (13 euros ) and grilled calamari topped with garlic oil (9 e), and rolled pork filled with bacon and prunes... More

I say pricey because the night before we ate at Jupiter which was less than half. We had 3 main courses, 1 starter 4 cokes and 2 beers and the total was 53 EUR which I guess is not a bad price. We went in search of this restaurant and when we got there were looking at the menu outside... More

Went here as a group after searching through some online recommendations. This place came up average and we can see why - great location but the frontage and the menu billboard does not do the food justice. Please change it! The staff were very accommodating and the service was a bit slow but the food was delicious and plentiful -... More

Sat directly behind Pula's Forum building and Temple of Augustus this family run restaurant offers a wide selection of exceptional food at reasonable prices. Having ate at various establishments in the Pula area we thought that the standard was much of a muchness until we happened on this little gastronomical piece of heaven. The menu is as wide and varied... More

Looking for a light lunch we came across this family run bistro behind the Temple of Augustus. The food was fantastic, perfectly cooked and presented. The beer was very cold and the local white wine perfectly suited the calimari and grilled sardines we had. We enjoyed it so much we went back for dinner!
