Restaurants

Istria has great restaurants. From simple konobas and pizzerias to haute cuisine. Here’s just a taste from where I’ve been.

Sveti Nikola – slow-dining at its best?

Eating our dinner at Mare e Monti in Umag

If you love good food, Istria is a great place to come on holiday. It’s long had a strong reputation for the quality of it’s konoba food, but how about fine dining?  Most of our dining experiences here in Istria are of the local konoba variety – and excellent they’ve been too. But, as part of...
