Romantic atmosphere, excellent food ...... an antidote to crowds.

After the hubub of too many tourists in another hilltown we called to ask for a reservation and were invited to come at our leisure. The drive itself is an experience on narrow winding roads and lovely quiet countryside. The unassuing restaurant just appears out of nowhere. As soon as you enter... read more

Beautiful location, great slow food - a memorable experience. Until you get invoice, which makes you wonder if the abnormally high price is really worth all the pretending...

Konoba Toklarija is absolute perfection. We made a lunch reservation on a Tuesday afternoon (easy and quick to do via email). We arrived to have the restaurant totally to ourselves and the most attentive waiter. We sat in a cozy stone room and were served a delicious six course meal, with warm bread, three different wines, and a shot of... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. The setting alone makes the visit worthwhile. The restaurant is run by a father / son duo. The father is the chef and creates a new menu each week based on items he is able to source from his garden and through friends . There is a warmth yet elegance to... More

Probably the best dining experience in Istria, each course better than the previous. Good wine, very good service and a perfect quiet setting with lovely views. Yes, it is pricey, but worth it and we will definitely go back!

The journey to Toklarija is part of the excitement as you weave through the quiet village of olive groves and quaint houses. We booked in advance for lunch (as is well recommended) and arrived around 1.30pm. The whole meal took almost 3 hours which is part of the slow cooking experience. We were seated outside under the pine trees with... More

Came for white truffles, being promised beforehand. When ordering only black offered. Well!? But then also food was bery average from the beginning to the end. Only the price was like we would eaten 100g of white truffles.

Impromptu trip off season to this hidden restaurant. One of the highlights of our trip. Excellent food and service. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the dishes and wine. He was extremely professional, a service level equal to a Michelin star restaurant. The food was delicious and nicely presented. Other reviewers mentioned it was expensive, though not cheap, the quality... More

Recommended by friend of a friend, this out of the way restaurant was magic! A winding taxi ride from Buzet led us to this family run restaurant. Dad is the chef. Son is the waiter. All dishes and wine well explained and great. In the last year they have changed from meeting the needs of busloads of tourists to a... More

Having picked up a copy of the magazine "like Croatia 2014" (www.likecroatia.com) we discovered a very handy list of the best restaurants in Istria and Kvarner. We actually visited 4 of the 40 recommended spots. Konoba Toklarija was listed as No. 31 which, in our view, did not do it justice at all. We found our way and it was... More
