I go to Konoba Malo Selo a few times per year and they are simply the best. The food is excellent. I strongly suggest some pasta with truffles (try pljukanci pasta) and them a steak. You have to book in advance because they are usually...More

Malo selo is small familiar konoba. Great beefsteak with truffles. White house wine was great. Staff very warm and nice young people. Great service for a not so big price.

Dear Sir, sorry about inconvenience related with your visit to Malo selo, but you must read this. On thet date when you were there in Fratria, this family had a death case, the owner of the restaurant Neda Marusic (the mom) died. The entire family was not thinking that day about konoba and note about that still wasn't online. My apologies in that name. last thursday they re-opened konoba and i'm sure that the family will give their best to continue the name and tradition that mamma Neda started. I'm a close friend of the family and i'm asking you to remove this comment because the situation wasn't pleasent at all, Afterall they'we just had funeral in family and cooments like this aren't helping in situatuion they have. As well once when you are back in Istria, reservate a table on their mail on website. I'm sure you will see why guests tehre arw like family (know from my experience). And as they say, third is a luck. Thank you in advance, Filomena
