We had a great meal here. The fish and steak were both delicious and the swiss chard with potatoes was also excellent.

As for the past 4 years, during our Istrian holiday we went to Torkolo, a nice restaurant tucked in a side alley and therefore not as touristy as those overlooking the harbor. The restaurant has a spacious terrace and several other tables nearby, they have...a rather extensive menu, great prices for the quality they serve and quick and friendly waiting staff. The young kid is particularly nice and professional, and we are always happy to see Damir (hi buddy!). We overall visited Torkolo twice, and particularly loved the mussels, which were served with a spongy bread to soak in the delicious buzzara sauce. Squids and cevapcici were also very good, and my friends loved the prawn ravioli. If you don't wanna break your piggy, have a delicious and affordable meal in a laid back environment, this is definitely a place you need to check out.More
