This is our second visit. I haven’t found a better food in Istria. Its a family restaurant with kind service. We enjoyed our time on a cozy terrace. Food was excellent. Menu is diverse, you can’t stay hungry. Will definitely visit again.

We had lunch here on a recent visit to the area. The staff was friendly, the food was good quality and good value. We sat outside on a terrace, and it was a lovely low key atmosphere.

Restaurant with very kind and friendly stuff. We came a little bit late and even they were closing they let us order whatever we want and said they stay till we stay and enjoy. Food is also good, little bit pricey but worth it.
