We targeted Restoran or Tavern Istranka from tripadvisor reviews. Another couple we dined with learned about the restaurant from the tourist information center recommendation. Just off the main drag of Marsala Tita you need to look for Ul. Radnicka and turn up this short street where you will find Istranka because it cannot be seen from the main drag. It... More

This little local tavern is worth seeking out if you want a homely reasonably priced lunch. You can sit outside and enjoy the sunshine.

Typical Istrian food: very good and high quality proposals! We tried both meat and fish dishes, all very satisfying. Central location, staff very professional and helpful. We also try honey liquor: amazing!

Having seen a review on this restaurant we decided to have dinner there. We each ordered the beef goulash and potato dumplings. The waiter suggested that we just get one order of the dumplings and when we ordered the house wine he suggested a half carafe. We were impressed that he would do this and he was right. The atmosphere... More

We stopped for lunch on our first day in Opatija and were impressed by both the food and the value. We ate a 'starter' each and then shared a cherry strudel afterwards. That was plenty of food for lunch. The bill, including drinks, was just over 150 Kn; very reasonable for freshly cooked, tasty food. They were serving a large... More

We enjoyed a pretty good dinner, perhaps being made more enjoyable by the fact that our servings were less than Gargantuan, as seems to be the case in this neck of the Adriatic. The clear fish broth was delicate, light and invigorating. A minestrone, Istrian style, including corn kernels among the other veggies, was hearty and flavorful. The veal roast... More
