A slow cooking concept restaurant. This is an ancient olive mill converted to a restaurant. Family run, father does the cooking. We were given a private little room to ourselves in this very old rustic and gorgeously renovated restaurant. We opted for "surprise" courses rather than ordering ourselves. They asked about any allergies or food restrictions or dislikes and then... More

We had a good diner, in a perfect atmosphere and an (initially) friendly host. The unpleasant surprise came afterwards: prices are insane!! We had to pay over 1700 kuna for two persons ( approx 230 euro), I mean, I really liked the food, especially the suckling pig, but this is crazy. It just wasn't thát good; the home made vegetable...

My husband and I ate at Toklarija on our last night in Croatia and were so glad that we did. We dined outside; the garden setting is gorgeous and peaceful. We were greeted warmly and made to feel comfortable throughout our evening (including being supplied with our own personal can of insect repellent — very necessary). The restaurant serves only...

Toklarija has taken the concept of slow food to the penultimate conclusion: long meals. This is really fabulous if you're not in the middle of nowhere, driving on country roads with no light in a rental and the only two people in the restaurant. Basically we loved the food, it was fantastic. The suckling pig was truly that: a suckling.... More

Indeed the place is small, it can serve 17 people a day. It takes a bit of driving from Porec or Novigrad but a nice countryside. You will drive into a very small village of only a few houses and outside it you will find this 6-700 year old tiny mill. They have done a good job making it into... More

If you're a serious food lover and you love your local wines, please visit this lovely little place. Please take your time to dine here, as it should take whole afternoon or evening, to enjoy the lovely Istrian slow-cooking. We were sat in the garden - a perfect summery dining spot - overlooking the homegrown vegetables, and had a selection... More

If you are in the area you must go!!!!! The owner is a really nice guy and excellent chef. The setting is a 16th Century Olive Oil press. The owner makes his own wine and grappa, although he no longer drinks he knows his stuff. All the food is local and a lot of it is off his land, cheese,... More

We ate here last night - the food was absolutely amazing, the waiter spoke perfect English and looked after us impeccably. We ate 6 courses, with 3 different wines to accompany them, and aperitif to start which was nice and smooth. It is expensive but the whole food and experience make it worth it! They do only take cash so... More

Beware, the cost of this experience is irrationally high. The overall experience was most interesting. It involved finding out about the restaurant, making a reservation (challenging since they do not have a web site or email), and following a challenging mountain road to get to the restaurant. This difficulty is part of the mystique. There is no menu, they serve... More

I planned to go somewhere else but ended up there and I'm incredibly lucky for it. It's a place with only a few tables. There was only one young waiter which has done his job perfectly. The restaurant is traditionally styled with ethnic artefacts everywhere. The toilettes were very clean and the flower on the sink was pointing at a... More
