Nice cosy place with pleasant service. Although the restaurant was full the waiting time was not long. All ordered food was excellent. I would recommend it to anyone and will definitely return.

Very openhearted host! We set near by openedfire chimny and enjoyed simple but excellent couisine. Fiorentina steak was prepared by the book and typical istrian dishes were just as expected - excellent.

We had pasta with truffles and beefsteak with truffles. Food is pure perfection. Beef was soft and juicy, truffles sauce with fresh truffles very tasty. I highly recommend this place, it gives the right impression of how amazing Istrian food is.
