Every single dish we tried was outstanding, the wine served per glass was amazing, the dessert (made by the owner himself) was great and one of the absolute highlights was our waiter. We cannot wait to go there again on our next visit to Pula.

If you want to eat a lunch that wont be too expensive, but you want local and fresh ingredients this is your place to eat. I ate in Vodnjanka many times and was never disappointed.

I was alone on a business trip and was advised to get a lunch here. The whole experience was great. They gave me a table I wanted, recommended the food and explained everything on my plate. Mixture of home made and professional cooking. Just great.

This summer, I was here twice. Both times, the dinner was excellent. You can choose between two menus: meat and seafood menu. Starters was similar both times. You get: bakalar (typical Croatian cod spread, octopus salad, sardines, anchovies). Amazing. Only for starters I would come again and again to this place. The main course dependens on the daily catch. First... More

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
