It is a small unpretentious place with only a few tables, so in the season I would recommend you make a reservation, and menu is either fish or meat, and it does not say what you get, we went with the fish, and it was very original, very tasty and as far as quantity goes, more than enough. I did... More

This is just one of the very good dishes you can eat at this restaurant. Any fish is well prepared and always superbly fresh. The only drawback of this restaurant is that you might have difficulty to find it, but any taxi driver knows it and will drive you there for a few Kuna’s. Morris can advise you on the... More

This place is a real gem. We walked for about 10 mins from the center of Pula & found the restaurant down a dark side street. Service was excellent & the waiter was very knowledgeable about all the food & wine on the menu. 2 choices..meat or fish. We had 1 of each. Really delicious. The only thing I found... More

Do you like fish? Would you like to eat a lot of it? Well, this is the place for you. The fish dishes are magnificent and expertly prepared. The wine pairs really well. The staff is really friendly and knowledgeable and the atmosphere is really pleasant. Definitely recommend!

What a hidden gem! From the incredible staff who are extremely knowledgeable about everything on the menu & the local producers to the food itself. I had the seafood dish and I have no complaints about any of it. I even sampled some of my friends donkey starter which I have to say was exquisite. And that panacotta!!! After a... More

What a fabulous traditional restaurant. Located away from the hustle and bustle of the centre, it is located on a side street only five minutes drive from the centre. The menu is very simple, meat or fish. No choice of meat or fish, just what they can purchase fresh on that day. Please don't be put off by this, as... More

We visited here as a family of four with teenage children on the recommendation of Trip Advisor reviews - and we're delighted that we did! Located in a quiet street away from the town centre we found an unpretentious restaurant with modest but friendly and well informed staff. The menu is limited to either a meat or fish starter and...

Really great meal! The cold seafood starter was an awesome assortment of fresh fish all prepared in the restaurant. Also get the bread (kruh)! If you're going for lunch, try to aim for around 1 since they weren't open at noon.

Wonderful meal, they offer just two set menus in the evening with starter and main, either fish or meat (175/150 kuna). I guess you could say the prices are a little expensive relative to the area, but it was not really expensive considering the quality. Both menus were excellent, the slow cooked veal and potatoes were particularly good. Usually I... More

What we got was excellent grandma style food, the best ingredients wonderfully prepared. Our waiter was extremely friendly plus fun and clever. He also explained... More
