“Great food full of surprises”
Reviewed November 22, 2013

I visited this restaurant only once as I am not a slow-food lover.

But I was really impressed with their innovative ways of food presentation. Its spectacular what they can do with small Adriatic fish.

They managed to turn small seamy fish in a gourmet masterpiece.

A must-try when in Pula!

“So glad we came...”
Reviewed October 24, 2013

We chose this restaurant specifically because it was rated so high on Tripadvisor & boy are we glad we did. This is definitely the best restaurant in Pula. When we arrived they did not have
and free tables but the really nice waiter told us to come back in about 30 minutes and he will have something for us. Sure enough, we came back and a table was already prepared for us with a reservations sign. The food was impeccable and if we would have stayed longer we would definitely be back for another meal.

“This is absolutely the best place in Pula area.”

Don't even think of going anywhere else, this place is best you can find. Try to reserve in advance though.

“The best meal ever”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

I visited this place 3 times during my 2-week stay in Pula. It is definitely the best food I've ever had. It is strictly fish restaurant, and fish is not even my first choice.

Unbelievable combination of home-atmosphere and fine-dining. It is interesting, it is refreshing, it is incredible tasty. The personnel is friendly, the terrace is comfortable and you can smoke there, the cat is fat :).
My suggestion is just to let waiter to choose food for you. We had over 10 different meals every time, every one was delicious. Surprisingly for this type of restaurant, their deserts are very modern and delicate. Home wine is fine. We had about 10 different plates (2 of us) + deserts + 1 liter of wine + brandy .... for about 35 euro/person?!
Just take your time and enjoy, it will be an unforgettable experience.
It opens at 5 p.m. and closes at about 11. And yes, reservations are needed.

“Leave it to the host”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

When you come to this restaurant, the best thing you can do is to let the hosts do their job. At first we told immediately that we all are fans of all kinds of sea food and we found that we are in the right place. We were lucky at the same time that we were six, so we get to the table six different starters, six different main courses and six different desserts. Each of these dishes was very nice, a lot of flavor, prepared fresh, just for us. In between we succeed to eat a huge bowl full of fine shells. With good local wine, the evening was a real feast of flavors.
