I had an amazing octopus salad at this restaurant. i heard the roasted octopus is also a must have but I didnt have the chance to have it as the portion was too big. Great service and great location.

The food was good but at the end of the meal , I discovered a piece of plastic in my food and when i raised it with the waiter and owner of the restaurant,they didn't seem bothered or even cared. No apology was given and i could have easily choked on my pasta. Terricble service.

We happened upon this restaurant while looking for another place that used to be nearby. We were very glad we did. We requested that they essentially throw away the menu and cook a family-style meal for us (8 people) and they did. They brought out fresh branzino for our inspection, then grilled them to perfection and filleted them at the... More

The food was ok or I should say not bad. But I would not say it was good value for money. We were a group of 4 where after the meal we wanted to pay for our own bill but the head waitress said she already had all under one so we could not split our bill and 1 person... More

When we stayed in Pula in July, we enjoyed our meal at the Amfiteatar restaurant so much we went back the next evening. We sat on the terrace at a simply set table with a view of the harbour as the sun set. The food was a modern take on traditional Croatian cuisine; superbly cooked and presented, and delicious. We...

Super slow service, annoyed staff, average food. This one of the endless Istrian restaurants where staff is annoyed by their guest in the middle of the season. If you skip it you dont miss anything.

Got dinner end of august 2015, the weather was nice so the outside terrace is a good place to eat. We got some fishes that were good and cheese to share. Might be a bit pricey for local food but that was a treat after some days of fast food in a festival. The bad point is that service was... More
