Beautiful ambient with big fireplace in the background, romantic terrace, polite and not too pushy staff who gave us two biska liquors on the house. For Croatian's standards it is little bit expensive but it is worth to visit it. Portions are little bit small but Istrian kind of food requires to eat slowly and enjoy every bite. Tipp: book...

Very authentic, rustic-like. The place is a local tavern, which offers amazingly good cuisine. We ate grilled fish and meat and it was absolutely fresh and delicious. We saw, they offer also a variety of pasta dishes, yet we did not try. Whatever second course you order, ask for the boiled patatoes as a side dish. They are great. The... More

No deep blue sea within sight, this is the inland Istria. A wonderfully rebuilt old Istrian house less than ten minutes drive from the best local hotel, Kempinski Savudrija on the seaside. Parking no problem. Warm reception, rather rudimentary table settings – but this is a »konoba«, taverna in other Mediterranean countries, not a posh restaurant. Very small, but cute... More
