We stopped here while waiting to go to a gladiator show at the Pula amphitheatre. The waiter who greeted us was very friendly and was happy to explain the menu and what was available to us.we ordered a mixed grill platter and a pizza, both of which were absolutely delicious. We returned after the show to ask for taxi numbers... More

After discussing our dietary requirements (Gluten Free) we were taken to a nice table by a very friendly waiter who talked us through all the options avaliable. We went for a seafood platter (SEE PHOTOS BELOW) and it was beautiful cheap and very tasty. The food only costs us 140 Kuna for 2 of us and I couldn't recommend it... More

A friend and I decided to dine here after passing in the street, our waiter was extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. We decided to share a fish platter with garlic bread, the food arrived in good time and was presented well but overall tasted quite basic. I would consider it overpriced for what it was.

Worst food and service ever and who says contrary has absolutely no idea about food and gastronomy. I don't know if in these neighborhood you can find some better places because after this experience I won't try any of them.

Terrible food and service, not enough cooked, almost raw squids. Ravioli with salmon - too much salt, there were maybe 5 ravioli on the plate, there was almost no salmon. All in one... so bad...

We have been stopped by a waiter wich is usually something i don't really like, anyway they told us the daily fresh fish they had and we took a mixed grill plate for two persons. The fish was amazing and the price was about 25 € per person. They don't accept credit cards so be ready with cash.

I would strongly recommend not to eat pasta or meat at this restaurant - the worst quality I have ever had!

The food was terrible. Tagliatelle with scampi was disgusting. Only tomatoe inside and scampi were of very bad taste. Don't go there.

A nice setting for this restaurant. Competing with many others on nearby streets Barbara offers comfortable seating in a covered 'lounge' type area surrounded by greenery and decorated with lamps and chandeliers. A relaxing place to be and nice at night. Our opinions of the food seem to reflect the disparity of high/low reviews on this site though. A mackerel... More
