“Great Istrian food in view of the colosseum!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

Arrived late at night to stay in the hotel. Despite the late hour - almost 11pm - the staff at the restaurant could not have been more helpful. Great Istrian food accompanied by an excellent bottle of local wine recommended by the waiter.

“Excellent place near the amfitheater”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013

After visiting the amfitheater we wanted to eat something, this was the first place we saw.

We had the tagliatelle with truffle and seabass, both were excellent. Service is quick and polite.

Not the cheapest, but honest prices.

Toilets are very clean.

“Popular with locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

Amfiteatar is a most welcome addition to restaurants in Pula. There is nothing unusual about the menu, but they certainly know how to get the best from the local ingredients. We shared an excellent seafood platter/plate of bream, sea bass, calamari, langoustine, mussels and shrimp with side dishes. Other menu items were steak, risotto, pasta and dishes with truffles.The wine list was impressive, although we did not sample any on this occasion. This place is very popular with locals, and we had good service despite the busy lunchtime.
To sum up, we had good food and good value.

“Excellent Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

We dined at the Hotel Amfiteatar restaurant. The service was excellent. The waiter could not have been more helpful. Food was good although the Chef's idea of "tempura squid" turned out to be closer to fried battered squid. The soup potato and cuttlefish ragu was fine, as was the shrimp salad.
