The ambient is very nice, the old fashioned, with an open fireplace. All the time you can see workers, putting on the meat, scampi... mmmm, it looks so good! So, our waiter was very nice and friendly, he suggested us some fishes with polenta. We ordered this and it was really delicious! Oh, by the way, the toillet is very... 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

If you want to have really good local food, this is definitely one of the places to go. The scenery is just great, the service is top notch & the food is awesome. Pasta with truffles.....amazing.

After dining here for several years, I have to say that it is absolutely delivering perfect experience of tastes. You have to taste "Buskarin Gulash"! If sitting outside, I would recommend mosquito repellent.

We had a very nice Familiy Dinner at this place. The fish and scampi where very good. The place is also very charming. We have been there during off season and because of this it was not so crowded. The prices are a little bit higher then usual, but still exceptable for the quality.

We stopped at the restaurant on a late Sunday afternoon, when the buzz of Sunday lunch was slowly fading away. We were served in a nice and quiet garden in the back of the restaurant, where there are only 3 tables (there are significantly more in the front yard). We had mixed fish/seafood antipasto (octopus salad, ...), main (grilled fish/prawns,... More

A warm recommendation led us to this charming Konoba for my birthday celebration whilst on a recent (June 2013 ) holiday. Having found the food in Croatia a little disappointing compared to Italy and France it was a revelation. The staff made us welcome, the menu was almost redundant as we were asked what sort of things we liked to... More
