Country restaraunt in a beautiful location. Staff were very friendly and the service excellent

All food is sourced from within 4 km. try the sheep cheese and ham

“something to say”
Reviewed 10 March 2013

The restaurant is in a very interesting location. Lots of green, beautifully decorated and it's all ..
Very old-fashioned gastronomy is visible in all aspects, restaurant staff is not very professional and do not act interested in the job they are doing.
Upon arrival we were greeted, escorted to the table and menus are being offered, and of course we have asked for further wine list ; the waiter turned his eyes and deeply lamented by giving us know that he is in an extra effort. When we asked the waiter to clarify certain foods and items from the menu he was not been able to give the answers, and has further angered.
The menu itself was not interesting with very little choice and the wine list is not defined, finally we ordered wine and water, and after we were served the same waiter did not come back on the terrace. When our necks twisteda female waiting staff comes and receives our orders, the food was oversalted and cold, the wine was warm and the bread was normally charged.
We are very disappointed and will not recommend this restaurant as the guests are peeled as potatoes are in the army!

“False expectations”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

The problem of this place is that it is too highly rated. 14 points on Gault Millau Austria and one of the best restaurants of Istria in a Croatian Guide? Definitely not. Decent food and good value? Definitely yes. Anyway, first things first. The ambience of the place is ok. Some outside tables have a nice view, but the overall atmosphere is more rustic than fine dining. The service is ok, but not refined. We got everything we needed, but sometimes had to ask for it. Nothing major though.

I had foie gras as appetizer, which was nice. The mushroom risotto of my son was uninspiring, the rice too 'al dente' and not salted enough. For mains, they were out of Fiorentina steak, but I had the beef cutlet instead. The portion was huge (over 500 g), the steak well seasoned and nicely grilled. The meat could have been a bit more tender, but for EUR 12.50 you can't complain. My son had the braised beef with polenta, which was very nice, but could have come with more sauce. My wife had grilled chicken which was also ok.

All in all a nice dinner with good value. We got what we paid for or even more. But due to the high ratings, we were expecting better. And this sums up the dilemma of this place.
