We always have a nice time at Buscina, we are never disappointed. I would say they are expensive compering other restaurants near by but the quality of food is excellent. We were little bit disappointed because the desert was average but in the end of the day you do not visit Konoba because of sweet things. I would definitely recommend... More

I keep coming here for 15 years and have never been disapointed. Last week I had octopus salad and fish (local name kavala or konj) and it was just perfect. Staff is very nice. Setting is in an old istrian house and beautiful. Moreover, prices are very reasonable for food and service quality.

We didn't have a booking, which meant we were seated indoors on a warm evening. No worries - great atmosphere and next to a window. However, the rain stopped, the skies cleared, and they offered to move us outside under their grape arbor. Good choice! Definitely worth the trip for seafood, meat, dessert, olive oil, wine and grappa. Mmmm!

A pretty posh restaurant. Turned up expecting a pizza restaurant and ended up in a posh restaurant. Definitely worth booking. Ended up having a couple of tasty pizza dishes. The sort of place people get dressed up to visit.

Restaurant in the country side with superbe croatian kitchen and excelent service. Needs to be reserved - many guests turned away since very limited space. Go for croatian prosecco ! And octopussy, and steaks and, and, and ..... And get back again !

I know this restaurant for years and tried it once again last year with my wife. We were lucky to get a table without reservation. I had some grill, my wife choose some istrian disk. I can not complain about the food, it was all very tasty. But with so many guests, the service had some problems to keep up.... More

We are foodies who have had eaten in Michelin star restaurants and home-in-the-walls all over the world. But at Konobo Buscina, a simple restaurant in Istria Croatia, we had one of the best meals ever. Lovely ambience, good service and Plorices also can't be beat. This restaurant is definitely worth the visit.
