We like eating local food, so by the advise from Tripadvisor, we went to Black cat. We were early after they opened, so order and serving went very fast. Everything I can say is, that today I ate one of the best steaks in my...life. 🙂 Worth every € or Kuna or whatever...More

I highly recommend this restaurant in Novigrad. We had a wonderful time there with very tasty meals. The service was very good . Túto reštauráciu sme našli na Tripadvisore akú jednu z najlepších a musím povedať, že nesklamala. Jedlo aj obsluha boli vynikajúce.

We have had few visits in local restaurants in Novigrad. We kept Gatto Nero for the last evening and it was awesome. Food was delicious and also very nice staff. Rates were ok according services and level of gastronomy.

Perfect in every way! The location is a perfect spot on the water’s edge. The service is perfect. The food exceeds all expectations. Local favorites prepared perfectly! I’ve never had black truffle touched dishes that tasted as good as these. In America, black truffle flavor...comes from a lab, but here in the spring, this is the real thing. And it is really good! The stroganoff was perfect. The octopus was perfect. The shrimp ravioli was perfect. I want to bring the chef home to cook for me always.More

Was surprised by greeting with local bread and creamy truffel sauce and sljivovica after paying the bill, all on the house. Quick service and great food, recommended restaurant!

We tried some restaurants but after a while we found this restaurant and it was the last restaurant we visited for the last days . Excellent food , a very kindfull owner who takes time to talk with his guests , we learned a lot...about Istria and about the region he originally comes from . It's a person who lives for his job and he does it with heart and soul . One of the following years we will definately come back here . I could suggest everyone to eat here . Food and prices are very good .More

Well I am just oh so impressed, I found this little place on trip advisor and it has exceded all of my expectations. First of all we eat out a lot and to find one thing on the menu that I have not tryed before...is not common. I did not know what to order everything looked so good on the menu, and when the food arrived it was just amazing. We will return again for shure. The staff is friendly ane all i can say is keep up the good work. Cant wait to try all other things i did not have room for 🤩More

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.
