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...

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... More

I think this place is truly over rated, you are paying an extortionate amount of money purly for presentation. The food is not special at all but is presented well. The decor is imaginative but not at all practical. I would not reccomend anyone to visit unless they have money to waste,

After a few days in Pula we understood that it was hard to find a restaurant serving something else on the meny instead of calamaris and Orada (which was all good but we was longing for something with a twist) You can take a taxi for about 80-100 kuna/10 euros out to this large villa situated in a smaller village....
