Very unusual, but in a positive sense, the experience of preparing traditional Istrian food in a modern and innovative way. The waiter from Osijek, was more than friendly and presented food to us in a wonderful way. Praise the chef, but also a great praise...More

Eight of us had the six course tasting menu. Very eclectic and interesting food, but you’d better like truffles! The staff was very accommodating of our vegetarian and gluten-free needs.
