Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

WONDERFUL LUNCH IN KONOBA TONČIĆ WITH PERFECT VIEW ON THE ĆIĆARIJA MOUNTAIN Agroturizam Tončić, a small farmhouse tavern is a right place to try quality gastro menus with products made in hills on the north side of Istria. There you can try perfectly tasteful creamy...garlic, fennel or mushrooms soup with croutons. Also on the menu are gnocchi with “Boškarin” (the white grey long-horned cattle in Istria) goulash or truffles. At the end of gastro offer is dessert, delicious chocolate-mascarpone cake or traditional famous cheesecake. We found this information on istriago travel guideMore

If you want something special far from average restaurants this is THE PLACE. For me the best konoba in the Istrian region. The food is simply superb and Sandro is the man who put the finishing touches on everything. The ambient is warm like at...home with small details in wich you lose track of time and enjoy pure pleasure. I will come again and again.More

Nothing else to say. Sandro and his wife Sandra are the perfect in what they are doing and it's a must when you visit Istria. The only thing is.... You have to make the reservation as soon as possible.

Family owned restaurant located on the hills of Istria, with stunning scenery and sorrounded by nature. Service is great, attentive, professional and gives the charm to the place. Food is delicious, typical home cooking with touch of finesse. Fantastic place.

Wonderful people, wonderful food. Orjela and Sandro will make your visit unforgettable and you will feel nothing but joy, happiness, orgasmic food and excellent homemade wine. Even Sinatra himself, singing at the corner of beautiful terrace, could not make experience any better than it already...was. O&S, thank you for everything, see you soon!!More

On our way back from holliday we stopped at Konoba Toncic. We really wanted to visit the place because of its reputation and everything good i heared about the restaurant. A very kind and great cook welcomed us and asked if we had an resetvation...(we did not) and i told her that we came from Slovenia just to visit them. The restaurant was full and she could easily send us away but she didnt. They managed to find us a table - we were very grateful (we had 2 hungry kids in the car). Been around Istria for years now and tried different istrian konoba, but this was something special. Everything was very tasty and homemade. From the first till the last plate. Cold appetizers (local cheese, salami and prosciutto), creamy garlic soup, homemade pasta with truffles, steak and dessert. Kids were very happy with their homemade “elder tree” juice and pasta. The whole experience was amazing. All the waiters and cooks were very polite in kind to us. Definitely coming back again.More

Just GO! Being from NYC, I've been to plenty of fancy restaurants, family restaurants, all kinds of restaurants - both in NYC and around the world. Tonic definitely stands out. The location is beautiful. We went yesterday and the views are incredible - we opted...to sit outside due to Covid. But the inside, especially with the open fireplace, is very charming. What really stands out is the homemade, fresh food made right there on the farm. BEST BEEFSTEAK EVER! Better, dare I say, than Peter Lugar. Pastas all freshly made (we had three different kinds), the goat cheese - yummm, truffles, antipasto platter, pork cheeks with white truffles, homemade white wine, red wine, coffees, amazing dessert (rich cake with mascarpone and hazelnuts - so rich and creamy but not sweet - looooved it), after dinner drinks, and most importantly...Sandro the owner who made our meal feel like we were dining with family. Whole meal, which took over 3 1/2 hours (hey when in Croatia you have to relax, eat, enjoy!) cost around $110 - excellent value. Oh and Cash Only! I found this out after I got the bill and realized we didn't have another cash. But we're going back today to pay the difference to Sandro (who was so gracious) and of course, eat more! Side note - Sandro's young son plays the accordion which was a real treat and very relaxing. Loved it!More

We couldn't have made a better choice to escape a rainy, gloomy day. Country-style decor, warmth of the fireplace and mouthwatering dishes were more than worth the trip. I'd especially recommend "fuži" with truffles. The pasta is homemade, of course, and it's prepared to perfection....The garlic soup was also delicious, as were the homemade ravioli with cheese and mushrooms. A definite gastro highlight of our Istrian trip.More
