Between Motovun and Rovinj lies the small town of Brtonigla where on a chilly late Sept. afternoon, a friend and I pulled off into a side parking lot. The restaurant has three floors, with the bottom floor being garages/working areas while the middle floor serves as the restaurant area. The top floor is where the family lives. One walks into...

Well positioned below the old town of Brtonigla, right by the Buje-Novigrad local road and some five minutes drive off the Istrian highway. Large enough parking. One big room with an open grill and a terrace with a garden, also used for tables. Neither of the latter particularly attractive (no view at all), but serving their basic function well. Big... More

Astarea is an institution in Brtonigla. Super friendly and chatty owner Nino who takes the orders (just tell him meat or fish and he will suggest a menu of whatever is fresh in the kitchen) and his wife who takes care of the open fire grill inside the restaurant. If in a group odrer few portions and share- good way... More

The owner is a friendly and will sit down by the table with every customer for a bit of smalltalk and help you with the menu. He will suggest great stuff but be careful, it is also the most expensive :) They are famous for the octopuss or fish "under the bell" but the pasta is great, so is the... More

Only one thing wasn't ok they made some soup which was like water without a taste and we told... More

We visited the restaurant by tour group last week. The pasta was good. However, the steak as main course was tough and overcooked. The service was poor. The waiter and waitress both were not that polite. Might be, too many customers for them to serve. There are so many good restaurants around. Except you just pass by and need a... More

Absolutely a fun place to eat and drink in a comfortable environment. The food is wonderful and the owner is a character. Finish off the meal with a selection of Rakias

We were there for a special occasion with my husband. The restaurant is nice and the food is also good, altough you have to wait a long time before getting any. I was very dissapointed with the service. The waitress insisted on us ordering what to drink before we had any menu almost arguing with us and then very rudely... More
