An excellent restaurant. In a small village, near the place Santvincent in Istria-Croatia. If you come to Svetvincent, look for the Bercanci village 6 km away.

We visit old magnificent medieval town Svetvincenat and after walk decided to try real local food. So we drive thru village few minutes and arrived to OPG Ondina. When we set on terrace, time was stop. The servants was not professional waiter, but son of...owner, chef is his mother, atmosphere is domestic and very unformal. And food... is very, very good and prices are moderate. Necessarily try all kind of pasta, sausages, cheese, vine, bred.... and forget your watchMore

We were at Ondina for Easter lunch with family. Nice place with really good food but before you come here prepare for a long waiting. I must admit that the food was definetely worth the wait(we ate fuzi and pljukanci with boškarin ragout and breaded...pork with baked potatoes, also salad and soup(maneštra). The waiter forgot a part of our order but I repeat, food was very good so I can give them 5 stars. Also he apologized in a very nice way so no hard feelings for him. Wine is home made and me personally couldn’t recommend it but I am a sommelier and therefore my opinion can be a bit snobby)) They have no beer. I can see a space for a major improvement with little effort and hope my review will make the owner do it as I am about to recommend the place to our tourists.More

You should consider that you will wait a while for the service but it is worth to wait. Don't order the wine, it's tipical sauer.

Traveling to Pula we wanted to eat something typical Istrian food. Village Savičenta was the best choice to get off the road. The main topic in this unique story is two types of sausages one dry one on the grill. We want something good to...eat in a typical Istrian village atmosphere, then our ideal destination was a Ondina Bričanci, only 1 kilometer from Svetvinčent. After we entered the tavern we noticed the only free table beside the fireplace. We were fortunate because at lunchtime there is a big interest of local people and tourists for visiting local taverns. We first looked at the menu and then we asked the host what is today best offer. After a few minutes, we knew what to order and what would heat our stomach and rehydrate our throat. We tasted typical Istrian dishes such as pasta, gnocchi, venison, smoked ham and cheese, dry sausages from white grey long-horned cattle (Boškarin) and sausages on the grill, while as a drink domestic we chose Istrian Malvasia. All meals are prepared exclusively natural ingredients and are a pleasure to taste with freshly baked just bread. We sat down near the fire and watched how our delicious sausages were prepared. After the main meal, we had the desire to eat some sweet. We ordered pancakes that smelled of homemade marmalade from the kitchen. Tips: After you leave the tavern don’t go away because 20 m on the left there is a homemade donkey waiting for you to take a selfie.More

the food is tasty, domestic but service is really slow. the restaurant was empty (two tables were ocupied), we ordered maneštra and pljukanci but it took them more than one hour to serve it. I can only imagine what would bi if the restaurant is...full and if we ordered something more complicated to prepare. I doubt we'll come here againMore

The atmosphere is plain and a bit rustic. The service is nice but a bit spacey. Don't let that fool you. The food is all fresh and originates from the family farm. The portions are large, the house wine is good, and the prices are...excellent. I would recommend this to anyone looking to try real Istrian food away without spending a lot of money, far from the tourist traps, in a humble environment. The local rakije (spirits) are a must try. I was very impressed and would go back.More
