Amazing goat cheese with truffles, the rest total average

We found this restaurant in Pula, we liked the decor and decided to give it a shot. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. I loved couvert the most – they served us goat cheese with truffles, which was excellent and I liked truffles in this combination much more. Jaime finally got his fish (but... read more

Stopped spontaneous for a bottle of water and ended up with a bottle of wine and some small fish appetizers that were wonderful and very fresh. Plus they take credit cards. Lunch, bottle of wine and bottle of water for four was around $50- great deal and charming service.

Ideal place to taste traditional Istrian food (standard and special menu every day) and wines also. Extremely friendly staff and excellent wine bar. Terrace and underground restaurant create unforgetable atmosphere.

There is not much to do in Pula but this restaurant was a highlight of our trip. The restaurant is located below grade in an old wine cellar. After we settled in, the waiter brought out couple fresh sea bass. Our group ordered both and it was a great choice. It was baked with potatoes and the waiter removed the... More

My wife and I ate dinner here one evening in their beautifully renovated wine cellar located downstairs from the main street level. It's more quite and private than eating outside. The menu selections we had were quite good. We found the first course selections to be adequate portion sizes. Prices were pretty normal to a little above average. The food... More

Excellent food here. The ingredients and care put into the food was phenomenal. One of the better restaurants in the city. Wait staff was friendly and fairly quick. Location is a little harder to find but well worth the look.

My husband and I were worried that this place would serve touristy food--edible but not great. It was recommended by our host so we gave it a try. It was delicious! My husband had the sea bass that came with veggies. I has the fuži with truffles. It was better than I could have hoped for. The portions are small... More

We ate beefsteak carpaccio and afterwards home made pasta called pljukanci with meat from the Istrian sort of beef called boškarin. They surprised us with cream cheese with black truffles while we were waiting for the main dish. House vine was great. I recommend this place to everyone who likes traditional Istrian food.
