We come here often, food is really great, plus, I think its the one of the few places in Pula where you can eat something different. I would like them to change the menu more often though :)

One of the few good restaurants in Pula that are open out of season. Good food, I was particularly impressed by steak with truffles. Delicious!

Recommended by locals as we wanted to try typical local cuisine. The food was truly a slice of heaven. Friendly staff, beautiful traditional restaurant. This will be on our list to go back to again before we leave.

Lovely food, cosy environment and great value for money. Can highly recommend the home made truffle pasta and turkey steak with vegetables. You are also served a small entree of cheese with truffle and yummy bread! Wide selection of wine, fab service too!

This restaurant was a good recommendation by our host. We sat outside and had a lovely meal of tuna and shrimps. The service was excellent. We would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Pula. It is not a cheap eat but well worth it.

When you walk down the stairs, you'll enter a beautiful restaurant with walls and a ceiling made of white rocks. We had a friendly waiter who explained us very well about the dishes on the menu. I had the Istrian sausage with rucola as an appetizer, which was very good, but quite a big portion. The risotto with prawns were... More

Kantina was recommended to us by locals, telling us that it was like eating at their 'grand-mother's', the food was indeed very good. Typical Istrian cuisine with a more delicate touch, one of our culinary high-lights in Croatia!
