“Terrible! Stay away”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

This place we chose based on reviews of Tripadvisor. We were shocked this place had rating of #3 restaurant in Porec.
Nothing nice or authentic about it. Inside very claustrophobic. Grilled fish on the menu was server fried!! Later on at night I ended up quite sick. I was positive it was due to not very fresh fish.

After this awful experience we ate at our hotel which is #1 in Porec. Great quality, price and above all buffet. All this is spacious, clean, air conditioned space.

“Friendly oasis of delicious food in the centre of Porec”
Reviewed August 14, 2012

Astrit - brother of the chef - squeezed us in even though we hadn't booked. We were lucky: many people were turned away while we ate. We felt miles away from the crowded main street; although we sat outside, the restaurant is not on a thoroughfare. The service was attentive, genuine, assured and warm, and the atmosphere intimate and calm. The food was delicious - we would recommend the Pasta Joakim (tagliatelle with fillet steak and truffles) in particular. It was more than just a meal: clearly these young men and their father pride themselves in the quality of the whole eating experience. We'll be back for another visit very soon.

“average”
Reviewed August 12, 2012 via mobile

According to tripadvisor reviews we visited konoba aba. Our impression: the owner is really friendly BUT the food is absolutely average like in any tourist trap in Porec - pasta is not good, meat dishes are accompanied with fried potatoes. Absolutely nothing special, draught beer is not local - only Bavaria. And above the all i met a huge insect in toilet
