“Only for big wallet”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

If you've money to put a way or you want to be the one status status symbol is more important in his life, this is the place where you are welcome. What you pay is not what you eat, probably you're paying the great service and black plates for average pasta serving but I think the price of food is a little bit exaggerated.

“creativity and modern style”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

if you get lucky you will be seated in the patio across the street. but nevertheless any place is fine.
creativity starts at the name of the varoius menus which i highly reccomend.

excellent food in a very creative way, you will be surprised by the unusal presentation of the courses. be it olives in 3 styles with self made crostini, scallops with pureed cabbage, ravioli with goat cheese or warm chocolate cake.

besides the excellent sevice worth mentioning also is the very good selection of regional vines (malvasia, chadronnay and sauvignon blanc) both form slovenija and croatia.

the only downside is the price, which meets cote d'azur standards.

Gorgeous hotel/restaurant/spa just outside of Pula. Lovely staff, fantastic rooms, thoroughly recommended if you fancy a more upmarket experience.

“One of the best in Pula”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

Were there with my girlfriend and another couple for dinner. The restaurant's design was excellent. The food was innovative and really good. The service has been in place. However it was a bit pricey.

Too bad that the restaurant has been closed...

“Too fancy?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2012

It's close to the sea, but not in a very pretty location. Everything in the restaurant is done to the n'th degree, which appeals to a certain macho type of clientele.
The food is actually very good and imaginative, and the service is generally attentive.
But a bit too fancy for me.
Very nice, if you like that sort of thing.
