“Quality food that all enjoyed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We ate at the Hotal Kastel Restaurant on the last night of our holidays. We were a party of 9 with 4 picky teenagers and trying to find a restaurant to keep everyone happy had been difficult as many had menus that did not appeal!!!
However, we were all impressed by this restaurant - the menus were in 5 different languages, the waitress spoke several languages fluently, the staff were most accommodating and informative and everyone found something (and not pizza -although they do this as well) that they liked. Several of our table said the Istrian Beef was the best beef they had ever tasted, and the food was of an excellent standard overall. The adults were also brought grappa that we were not charged for, and the whole experience was great. We wished we had found this restaurant sooner! When the bill came we thought it most reasonable for the amount we had ordered. Thanks Hotel Kastel for making our final meal in Croatia so memorable :)

“Nice terrace”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

We had pasta with truffle - not the best in Istria as it turned out afterwards, but still very good. It is a nice place to have lunch and recover from the scorching sun. Service is OK, but a bit distant, but that's probably due to the touristy nature of the town.

“Croatian cuisine at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2013

Wonderful Croatian traditional dishes in this open air restaurant in the square beside the way onto the ramparts in Motovun. We had risotto with wild asparagus and also one with truffles, among other dishes. The waiting staff were really helpful and even produced half portions on request so we could try more than one delicacy. Stunning views over the valley below. And remarkably inexpensive.

“Hotel Kastel Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012

Best view, fresh well prepared food, although lacking a bit of variety, particularly for vegetarians. Little bit overpriced compared to other places around.
