Vodjnanka is a lovely little restaurant in an otherwise rather desolate town. The waiter(owner?) was helpful and service-minded, we got more than enough food for our money and the steak with truffles main course we ordered was lovely. Recommended.

This restaurant is a good local taverna located in the small town of Vodnjan. Unfortunately, it was very windy so we could not sit outside. Inside it was an interesting decor with a weird doll mural and large paper butterflies hanging from the ceiling. We were the only one sitting in the restaurant since we came between lunch and dinner. However, this made the service quick but still very personal. The food was great, particularly the Istrian prosciutto was excellent and the bottle of Istrian wine was tasty yet inexpensive. You could tell that the restaurant made everything at home and that the produce was fresh and local. A great find for a long lunch or dinner.

A small quite restaurant with a small out door eating area. Homely feel and family friendly.
The waiter was very helpful and the wine better then some I'd had this holiday but nothing spectacular.
The truffle pate to start was amazing and the pasta homemade and very yummy.The beefsteak was served rare/medium rare and I had the truffle sauce,although this was shavings rather than a sauce.
Lovely long lunch.

In our opinion, this was the best meal we ate during our stay in Istria (and the competition was tough). Excellent authentic food, friendly atmosphere and wonderful service. Definitely one to source out if you are in the area.

While spending 10 days in the Vodnjan area we returned many times to this restaurant. Quality was always excellent and service efficient and helpful. Homemade stew is wonderful and the beefsteak the best.Pasta and truffles...niohing bad.
