A lovely little restaurant in the old town, on the main touristy street of Grisia. We visited it 3 times in 2 weeks.
The decor and atmosphere inside are definitely Bohemian. The menu is slightly different from the "standard Istrian" fare found in most other places (eg, they have chicken dishes, which we hadn't seen elsewhere). My husband really enjoyed pork medallions served with prunes. I appreciated both the chicken saltimbocca and the chicken salad with dijon dressing. A word of caution: many of the dishes include sesame seeds, to which some people are allergic - best to check. Indeed, for the seriously allergic, probably best to avoid this restaurant, as everything presumably has traces.
A marvellous chocolate cake for dessert (they were out of the cheesecake each time, more's the pity!).
Some interesting local wines and the "main man" is very knowledgeable about them and helful in making a choice if you're not sure.

Great wine, excellent service and good food. Try the tuna steak if it is on, it was fantastic, as was the truffle cheese.

We just happened upon this restaurant and cannot rave about it enough. We all enjoyed our food in the warm and friendly surroundings and would definitely recommend it!

My husband and I decided to eat at Tipico after seeing reviews on trip advisor. We were made very welcome by Silvestor Petrov who worked there and looked after us through the evening.
We shared a lovely risotto, truffle cheese with honey (delicious) and for a main course sea bass
and a lemon cheesecake for dessert, local wine was served by the carafe. The food had much
more flavour than some of the bigger restaurants by the sea. The only downside was that the
eating area outside is very small, we sat inside and after a day in the sunshine that was ok.
The only restaurant that offered a grappa complimentary after the meal.
Well worth a visit.

Excellent food a must for a foodie.

We visited twice in June. The atmosphere, service and food were fantastic.

Glad we didn't visit later in the season. We woukd have had to queue to get in. Book in advance in high season.
