I was here for the first time with my girlfriend. I got a tipp from a collegue that the restaurant is good so i wanted to try it out before i can recommend it to my guests ( because i work for a big tourist agency from Germany). I reserved a table 7 hours before but when we came they didnt have a table for us outside so we sat inside. The nice female waiter told us she will have a table for us outside in a few moments but we heard that the other female waiter pushed some other guests to sit there istead of us. Probably because we are domestic and we wont spend enough money. They have a nice choice of croatian wine and I recommend to try it. My girlfriend ordered a tuna steak and it was served with some grilles vegetables. And i ordered a black risotto(cuttlefish /sepia). The steak was good maybe a bit too raw but quite good. On the other side the risotto was not. The rice was aldente and the colour was good but it was without any taste. Total lack of flavour and spices till that measure that you even do not know that it is a fish meal. I really am a fan of the black risotto and i was quite disappointed. I enjoy food but in this dish i really did not enjoy. I ate it just because i was hungry and didnt want to wait for some other food. When i said it was not good the waitress didnt even ask why and try to apologize in some way and thats what bothered me the most. At the end we took a cheesecake and it was nothing special but oke. Hope other will have better luck with their dishes!

He have come back every year as part of our Istrian trip. We had until this year very good experience. The truffle gnoccies were very good, as the starters with the marinated branzino and the octoous salad. This fish soups was also very good. This time we had some not so nice dishes. The sepia risotto and soagetti a la
Vongole were without taste.. maybe they forgot to add the fish soup to it. Hope that the italian part of the menu they can work on it.

With a small town and lots of restaurants to choose from who all have a similar menu it’s great to find one that stands out. The waitress and service were great, little touches like having the steak tartare mixed up at your table. 6 of us went and all dishes were great quality. Fish platter, lamb, duck, squid all cooked well and presented nicely. Definitely looking to return

The best meals we had in Porec were in this restaurant. We were looking for somewhere to have lunch and found recommendations for Cakula online so went along and ended up returning for dinner again that same day! Their black risotto is a must-have and their fish platter is also to die for. The staff are super friendly and moved a table out into the street on our third visit to make room for us. A must-visit in Porec
