This is the best seafood restaurant in Poreč. They have all kind of fishes and of other seafood. They have mostly local customers that are not one-time visitors. If they come back, that has a meaning ! The lady manager is very friendly.
The third photo shows special Istrian home made pastas. I must look for their name that I have written down but cannot find right now.
Favorite Dish: Ligne na žaru
In the numerous alleys around Trg Marafor, half-hidden restaurants specializing in fish and grilled meats have opened for business...also ice-cream all over the place.
Trg Marafor was originally the Roman forum, measuring precisely 45 by 45 meters. This was the exact size of an Insula (island), which is what the Romans called their apartment houses. The Roman pavement has survived in several places here.
In Summer, the tables set under the olive tree in the rear yard (first photo), enclosed by medium height walls that protect from the wind, are very pleasant. When the weather is cooler, the room inside is well arranged and friendly looking.
The side entrance (second photo) may not be an entrance for customers as nothing is written to identify it, but only an entrance for staff. It opens in a wonderful little passage that leads from Decumanus to the quay.
This carving shown on the third photo is found left to the side entrance of Ulixes restaurant and allows to peep into the restaurant. I expect this is not what it has been designed for ! I suppose that it actually wants to remind of a boat porthole.
Favorite Dish: Carpaccio with truffels.
Tuna with truffels sauce.
Any grilled fish or squid
Pizzeria-restaurant Nono serves a good choice of pizzas, pasta, gnocchi (dumplings) and second courses, as fish or meat dishes.
At this pizzeria they serve two sizes of pizzas. The small and the medium one. Be careful; the small pizza is a quite large. I suppose the medium one would be extremely large.
Favorite Dish: I went at Nono's a couple of times. The first time I had gnocchi with four cheeses. I liked them. The second time I asked for pizza with vegetables. It was full of these. Even if this pizza wasn't crusty I like it anyway.
Not really a restaurant but a bar with a superb terrace in a very pleasant surrounding, on Trg Narodne. It is close to the market and mosrt customers come from the market, either customers of the market or selling on the market.
Not really a restaurant but better a barwith a superb terrace in a very pleasant surrounding, on Trg Slobode, and with comfortable seats under the shade.
You can have for example a pita/burek (second photo)
Favorite Dish: Besides the drinks, they have a great variety of ice-creams and a few hot food (burek).
We always recommened this place to our guests, because it has brillant food. In Porec lots of places are only open during the summer and serve only pizza for the tourists, but Dali is open all year long and lots of locals eat there as well.
They serve local food as well as local, and I love their Cevapcici!
Without a shadow of a doubt, the best restaurant is Nono. It does a varied menu, mainly italian, also lots of seafood too but th portions are fantastic and the prices very very reasonable. We went there both nights in Porec, the first time we had a big pizza, and it was MASSIVE, the biggest ive ever had(mustve been 18 inches), and it was only 50kn(£5), and it was bloody gorgeous! none of us could finish so they gave us a diggy bag to take it home for breakfast!
The 2nd night, i had a lovely bit of really thick tender steak for 80kn. wine here is pretty cheap too. the only problem is that it gets busy and you may have to wait! its nice to sit outside but there isnt much room, but worth the wait!
As the Istra peninsula used to belong to Italy all cuicine are italian inspirated. Pizza and pasta fills the menu allong with the usual meat and fishdinners, all with a local twist. I found the croatian sausages to be nice.
Local wine and beer are nice but if you prefer international beverage there are always hieneken.
This is the best pizzeria in and around Porec. The pizzas are absolutely awesome, and it is also the pizza place that locals preffer over any other.
It is right in the walking district of Porec and you can make a stop here for luch and dinner. Also, have a "mish-mash" to dring, they make them alright ....(wine+fanta)
This is a new restaurant in Porec, we just bumped into it walking towards the beach. We had pizza and pasta, was delicious, great atmosphere and looked like a great place to have a barbecue party. Great domestic loza (local brandy), pleasant patio, looking forward to going back.
Favorite Dish: Pizza gurmana with gorgonzola and local prosciutto, delicious.
If you are right in Porec, you will come across many, many 'Slasticarna''s (coffee shops where you can choose from tons of ice-creams and local sweets.
You have to have Ice Cream in Porec, especially if you are headed down Dekumanova Ul. (Main Street in Porec). As far as dinner goes, you will be much better off going outside of the city centre, preferably towards Vrsar. You will come across Funtana which is packed with sea food places, and Vrsar has about 20-30 open restaurants right on the riviera. This will give you a beautiful view of the area, as well as the sound and smell of the sea. The food is mostly local and seafood (also, pizza and pastas made in hundreds of different ways).
You’ll be able to taste many different styles of cuisine, since Istra has picked up many good foods from Yugoslavia’s former republics. If you are into sweets.... you should not go home without having Tulumbe, Krempite, Sampite, Baklava... and make sure you try all of them so that next time you have a favourite one:)
This is where I used to go when I skipped classes in elementary school!! The dessert menu is great, although the quality is the same in most bars/ restaurants of this kind.
The great thing with Bijeli San is the location! If you like people watching, this is perfect.... and it's close to everything.
Favorite Dish: Of course - KREMPITE! and the coffee is good here as well.....
(oh yes! and the ice cream , - stracciatella ..mmmmm..hehe)
The cafe Central is a local restaurant and wine bar on Trg Sloboda right in the middle of the old town. When we arrived we found many of our fellow countrymen, i.e. Dutch tourists there, much to our surprise they were mostly bikers. No ban on noisy bikers here, yet ...
Favorite Dish: We drank some white wine.
This restaurant is located in Zelena Laguna close to the hotel Zorna.
I like the surroundings because its a big green garden with trees growing in the middle. there is also small patches of grass in there.
So far Ive tried their seafood which is excellent. Read : risotto with seafood, and various steaks and again my fave: Cevapcici!
