Description: Restaurant Ribarska Koliba (Fisherman's Hut) - the Sleeping Beauty has awaken after a hundred year's sleep and has become a favourite destination for lovers of gastronomy and fine wines. Surrounded by pine woods on one side and the crystal blue waters of the Adriatic from the other, Ribarska Koliba is something of a refuge from the hustle and bustle of the city. The roof of the restaurant has been transformed into a Lounge Bar with magnificent views of the marina and Verudela Bay. During the day it's a great spot to relax in the gentle breeze enjoying the calm surroundings and atmosphere. In the evening it's a place to gather with friends, sample the wonderful choice of cocktails, enjoy live music and so much more.

Well we saved the best until last, far superior dining to anything else we had experienced on our visit to Croatia so far, lamb with mushroom souffle followed by mixed fruit panacotta, my partner had beef tagliata followed by tiramisu, a devine dining experience, lovely ambience, great waiter

That’s all I have to say. Right after our last dish a waiter lost complete interest to our table and we’ve been waiting for 20 minutes for our check while he was servin a lobster to other table taking photo. We even saw an old men dragging his wine bucket from his table to the seaview table he was waiting for. Awful everything.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a local Taxi driver so we read a few reviews and decided to give it a try.

We pre booked a table for Friday night as we presumed it would be busy but it was empty with only two other tables occupied.

Our fish starters were bland and tasteless, my daughters chicken children's meal was very overcooked and dry,
MY husband had Steak for his main meal and it had a very bad taste to it like it was off and so he didn't eat any of it and told the waiter that it wasn't right. He had asked for it cooking medium well but it was very rare when it was first served and so he asked for it cooking a little bit more and the waiter said that was why it tasted bad!!

My husband was still hungry as he didn't eat his main and so he ordered Apple Strudel which was nothing special, again bland and tasteless.

I did think they would have knocked the steak off the bill as it was not edible but the bill came to us with everything on and no offer of a discount, we said we didn't think we should be charged for the steak but the waiter had a very bad attitude and refused to do anything about it.

I wouldn't recommend this place to anybody it is very overpriced for bellow average food. It was the most expensive meal we ate whilst in Pula and by far the worst. The only thing going for this restaurant is the view.

We stayed at the Park Plaza Histria and The Yacht Club restaurant there served amazing food at half the price of this place and the most beautiful view over the sea.
