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

Happened to end up in this place as it was mentioned in the green Michelin guide. But it is just your regular tourist trap. Food was nothing special. Small portions. Not possible to pay with credit card.

Has good food - but the normal istrian menu. The decoration is nice and the service is very good. Their pasta portion is huge and their soup was great

Visited here again last night after first trying it a few days ago and was just as impressed. On our first visit I asked our waiter what he would recommend and he said "chateaubriand " I could suppose you would say he would as it's probably one of the most expensive meals anyone could order. I asked him how much... More
