Overall experience was very good, the staff was funny and polite, helping us to choose from the menu. Been here the second time, I must say the quality of sea-food was good again and would give at least 4.5 stars each time! It was not too expensive. Make a reservation.

With all the positive reviews we visited the place hoping for a good istrska konoba experience. You know - as in the other top 10 in Istria - a signature dish to try, local ingredients, personal touch by the owner, good atmosphere, at least a decent wine selection. We got solid quality food, average service (that kept us waiting long... More

Truffle pasta didn't disappoint, we were only regretting that we shared our portion (price: 100kn). We got complementary dessert and it was delicious-semifreddo with almonds and caramel (yummy). We also went for the house risotto, which was ok, but not the highlight of our dinner - that was the pasta. The surrounding is nice and so is the staff. We... More

Top of the season or off season the quality is constant! If you are looking for Istrian genuine kitchen with the spark of modern cuisine that Konoba Bušćina is the place to visit. Fish or meet, just put yourself in the hands of friendly and competent staff. Wine list is good. It is by all means well managed family restaurant... More

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.
