We ate at the Barbara twice in May 2017. The waiter spoke perfect English and was very friendly. The service was prompt. We both enjoyed the meals. Nether of us tried the fish. The price was very reasonable. The pizza was excellent. Very spicy and with a lovely base.

Everything was basic. Nothing special but nothing bad. Service was fast but not the friendliest. Food was "okay".

We stopped here while waiting to go to a gladiator show at the Pula amphitheatre. The waiter who greeted us was very friendly and was happy to explain the menu and what was available to us.we ordered a mixed grill platter and a pizza, both of which were absolutely delicious. We returned after the show to ask for taxi numbers... More

After discussing our dietary requirements (Gluten Free) we were taken to a nice table by a very friendly waiter who talked us through all the options avaliable. We went for a seafood platter (SEE PHOTOS BELOW) and it was beautiful cheap and very tasty. The food only costs us 140 Kuna for 2 of us and I couldn't recommend it... More

A friend and I decided to dine here after passing in the street, our waiter was extremely friendly, attentive and helpful. We decided to share a fish platter with garlic bread, the food arrived in good time and was presented well but overall tasted quite basic. I would consider it overpriced for what it was.

Worst food and service ever and who says contrary has absolutely no idea about food and gastronomy. I don't know if in these neighborhood you can find some better places because after this experience I won't try any of them.

Terrible food and service, not enough cooked, almost raw squids. Ravioli with salmon - too much salt, there were maybe 5 ravioli on the plate, there was almost no salmon. All in one... so bad...

We have been stopped by a waiter wich is usually something i don't really like, anyway they told us the daily fresh fish they had and we took a mixed grill plate for two persons. The fish was amazing and the price was about 25 € per person. They don't accept credit cards so be ready with cash.
