Wondering where to eat while exploring wonderful Istria? Here are my favorites.
Barba Danilo, Rovinj
One of the real gems of Istria, family owned tavern Barba Danilo, is located 4 km from the old town of Rovinj. The restaurant is located inside a campsite, but do not let that confuse you. This restaurant offers high-class delicious Istran dishes. Here you can find excellent service and extremely fresh and delicious food. My advice is that you book a table at least one day in advance as they are usualy fully booked every day, especially during weekends.
Konoba Morgan, Brtonigla
If you are in for some delicious food, and a breathtaking view, this is a right place for you. As this restaurant is located on a small hill-top, you can enjoy beautiful surroundings while eating home-made pasta with truffles, delicious Fiorentina steak and drinking delicious Istrian wine.
Restaurant Zigante is located in the Istrian village of Livade. Besides a beautiful surrounding, restaurant offers many delicious dishes. The menu is dominated by truffle-based flavors in combination with other Istrian specialities. In addition to the restaurant, there are also organised truffle and wine tasting visits and a shop selling delicious truffle products.
Stari podrum, Momjan
This family owned restaurant is a perfect place to get the taste of Istria. Located near Momjan, restaurant is surrounded by beautiful wineries. Here you can enjoy a multi-course meal, truffle-based starters, hearty asparagus soup, a delicious home-made pasta dish, a beefsteak grilled in the fireplace, along with fine wines and homemade grappa.
