This place is a delight. The food and the service on our lunch time visit were absolutely perfect - fresh and tasty. Our waiter was able to offer excellent recommendations based on our preferences. Ambience authentic and as you would expect from any Istrian taverna offering quality home cooked dishes.

The waiters were quick, polite and friendly. The food was very good - and... More
