“Excellent seafood”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 24, 2014

This is one the best seafood restaurant in Croatia. The quality and freshness of the ingredients is the best you can have. Their cooking is simple yet very very tasty. This is the place if you want to try some "forgotten" and "modest" fishes prepared with no compromise leading to a possibility to get new delightful tastes in you mouth. Highly recommended if you are a serious foodie. The place is pleasant and warm and when you enter you feel immediately at home. The chef David is great character. Bravo!
If you want to eat here book in advance, because the place is small and very popular.

“The best I've tasted so far”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2014

I ate at this restaurant three years ago and decided to write a review only now because I have not had such an extraordinary food experience ever since, and I've been to many many places eating all kinds of different food. One of my next visits to Pula would be specifically for the purpose of visiting Batelina once more. Don't forget to book a couple of weeks in advance, though.

“Fenomenal and excellent dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2014

Everythig was so special and delicious. We tought that we had tasted a lot of sea food but Batelina showed us some new aspects and new flavours. There was a lot of small dishes, all special, prepared in a completely different way than in other restaurants. We were amazed that they don't have a menu because they do everything on daily base, depending on their morning catch. The wine was excellent, and the waiter guided us through the new dishes.

“Well. Not a nuber one in Istria!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

Been here for the second time. Huge expectations, but very very average. No taste with antipasti selection. Pasta and brodeto tasted completely plain. At the end: neither ambience, nor service nor food was bad, but faaaaar from exeptional.

“Great food great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014 via mobile

The food was delicious. I usually don't eat seafood but the fish was delicious. Every one in the party of 8 was in love with what they are. I highly recommend this restaurant.
