Great discovery

We were suggested this place by pure coincidence, today it is one of my favorites in Istria. Will definitely return. Everything, from service to food and atmosphere was at it should be in a 'konoba'.

This was the second time we have been to Buscina. The place is literally a few minutes away from our accommodation. We booked a table as they are very busy during summer. The food is delicious and fresh. The service is perfect, nothing was too much for them. Their food is amazing as they use local produce which include delicious... More

Staff was very friendly as always. Soups wa excelent as normal. On main course it was not very good. Fishes was overburned from outside and could me a little more done inside. Also they wasn't so tasty as normal. They was overcourded that day, but that's not excuse. As an excuse they offered us free deserts, which was very good.... More

Small family restaurant each year is better and better. Introducing their tradition, Istrian region in the small village, family relationship, innovation in the cuisine with different tastes of already recognised dishes. Sweet with olive oil and pepper. Meat with fruity creams. Menu that change with the season.

Our first dinner in Croatia was here, and what an impression it made on our group of six. We were warmly welcomed by the staff and owner. Rather than navigate the menu on our own, we had asked them ahead of time to plan the meal for us. Served family style, the food was absolutely amazing! The pasta with truffles... More

Went there few times and always had good food, quick service and friendly staff. The ambince is typical and laid back. It's been many years since I went there first time and I'm happy to say they have improved in all ways. I recommend it.

Biking in the area in early September. Stopped for lunch, sat outside under the arbor with grapes ready for harvest. There were more formally dressed diners, but we were made to feel most welcome. The local white wines are quite light, very fresh taste. And of course the food tasted like it had just been harvested, was well prepared, served... More
