We have eaten here lots of times and it's always good. The staff are pleasant and attentive. The food is consistently good all year round. It can be a little expensive depending on what you order.

Outstanding experience. Simple small town (village) restaurant with an excellent offering. The service was laid back, yet efficient, dishes well rounded and of quality ingredients. The local Merlot offered by the glass is a fine wine. One of those places to which guests frequently go back to. Nothing but compliments.

We arrived quite late on in the afternoon; the service was impeccable. The food is of the region, and the waiter's recommendations were spot on.

Good products, well cooked for a quite low price. We liked the truffle paté, Istrian Ox and we saw an impressive prosciutto plate at the table next to us. The dessert was just normal. Overall, an excellent restaurant. Also, the village is worth a 30 min visit.

You will find no Seafood and the menu is not big, but what is on there is really, really good food. We have been a party of 8 and have tried a lot. No big portion but really tasty and super food. The only reason for not rating excellent is the service which was very slow. But... to be fair... More

Really good service, excellent food, local food, no sea food but very good meat. Strongly recommended. Maybe the wine list is too short but the wine we had (terlan) was very good

Our first night in Croatia and I have to say that this was a great choice. Warm atmosphere including carefully chosen artwork, a fireplace with books on the mantle, stone and lace. Note the 3-D pictures of people in the front dining room--they're wonderful. Our soups were terrific. I had the seasonal soup which turned out to be mushroom soup,... More

We found this restaurant and got a table without booking, the staff were very friendly and professional, the meal was excellent, a blend of Italian and local (but not a pizza in sight). The pate's to start were lovely. The venison gnocchi was really nice and the I had the pork tenderloin. The meat was cooked really well and the... More
