Kaštel has long been a family favourite when in Kaštelir. The food is simple but delicious, with an emphasis on using local and fresh ingredients. Kaštel is a delightful place to spend an evening to get a true taste of Istria. The owner is very friendly and provides wonderful service. The food can take a while when it's busy as everything is cooked to order but this allows you some time to enjoy the excellent house wines and homemade bread with Istrian olive oil. The family are all vegetarian and Kaštel has a variety of options, we would recommend the fuzi with truffle and the kids love pohani sir (fried cheese). Vegans may struggle a little here but there are a variety of vegetables and potatoes as side orders which would make a decent meal.

The food and service at Kaštel are outstanding! Highlights: grilled pork & potatoes, gnocchi, tomato soup. Everything is local and fresh, and I'm sure there isn't a bad dish on the menu. My friend and I were staying at Kaštel Pension during our stay in Istria, and the staff was kind enough to provide us dinner when we arrived relatively late in the evening. We ended up eating there 2 more nights, not out of convenience, but because it was so much better than what we had in the more touristy towns we visited while there.

We stayed at the Pansion, so we were able to eat two breakfasts and a dinner here, and the food was among the best of trip. First of all, everything is super fresh -- the produce, the olive oil (amazing), the pasta, the breads -- and most of it seems to be home-made -- they make their own wine (though they have other types available as well), the owner's mother makes the jam they serve with breakfasts (super yummy), etc.... For breakfast the first morning they gave us scrambled eggs (excellent), bread with the yummy jam, cherry tomatoes, coffee, juice, and a lovely pastry for dessert. The next morning we had smoked ham with firm ricotta and cherry tomatoes, and bread and jam. For dessert, we had my favorite dish from our entire trip -- crepes/pancakes/palecinke with the the most amazing walnut puree. I wanted to get a glass of it with a straw. So, so good. Dinner: I was still full from lunch, so my dinner was tomato soup (perhaps the best I've ever had) and my husband had a super spagetti was wild boar ragu. Wow. Dessert was palecinke was chocolate, and then ice cream. I want to fly back right now just to eat here again.

If you appreciate produce hand-picked from the garden, mushrooms and wild asparagus straight from the local woods, lovely homemade noodles, Istsrian beef, tasty wines and olive oil, not to mention the complimentary homemade sweet and grappa to end the meal, then this family-run restaurant is a must stop on your travel itinerary. Menu offers delicious choices for both vegetarians and meat-eaters.

No fast food here...relax and enjoy a drink on the patio while everything is hand prepared to order. Attentive service in beautiful rustic atmosphere. Also two comfortable apartments available with great private balcony for dining or relaxing with pretty views of church tower and local activity.
