This is the best place to start your day: order a coffee and a croissant (the best one is with marmalade!) and enjoy watching sailing boats and yachts in the light breeze. Come back in the afternoon and have the best Aperol Spritz in town with complimentary olives, nuts and crisps. Top-notch service and great location. I visited this place... More

Nice relaxed atmosphere, great view of the yachts entering & leaving port, on the promenade around the city wall slots to watch on land as well. Happy cheerful staff

I have been here already many times as it is sort of a central place to meet with friends. Nice sweets, good cocktails and wide selection of spirits and beers. A bit expensive and always hard to get good table.

The coffee (cappuccino) was good. Not as tasty as in Italy, but for Kroatian terms we belief it was very good. The view from the terras is absolutely amazing! A very nice place to have a drink, enjoy the view and relax for a moment.

Perfectly placed on the seaside it offers fine breakfast and drinks. Aperol spritz is best in town, coffee too. Owner is taking care of guests and keeps fine selection of drinks. Not so cheap thou, but it is worth it. Try sundown time.

If you seek a piece of French riviera on Istria, this is the place :-) Imagine the setting sun, yachts gently rocking on the water, decent noise of the city in the evening, soft wind from the sea and a pinacolada or daiquiri on the table. Do you have a picture? Increase it by 50% at least and you have... More
