Best restaurants in Istria

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.
