Been here for a couple of times and was never disappointed. Service is very good. You have possibility of meat or fish menus. You can not go wrong with any of it. A lot of dishes are prepared on grill. They also have very good desserts, try cake with olive oil ;-).

It is not easy to find but it is worth it. Very nice interior, they have special meals (pasta, risotto) with truffle and Boškarin beef (Istrian ox). Fast and friendly service. Restaurant and service look luxury.

We had a truly good experience here, and probably the best over a few days in Istria. The food is super tasty, the staff friendly. Definitely worth a visit.

Although the place is maybe not easy to find, its food there is worth the journey. Their grill is legendary, with an emphasis to seafood dishes. Grilled seabass is always a good choice. If you prefer meat they have good goulash with fuzi, a local pasta. Also good can be cuttle fish with rocket as a cold starter. Selection of... More

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'. We had their local prosciutto and selection of cheese, beefsteak and great desserts. Have to pint out their olive oil, we bought some to take... More

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
