We ve been first time during summer season 2015 in this charming, family owned restaurant. If you enter from the seaside, you feel like in the green paradise.
Restaurant Antonia serves perfect fresh food, without any "show" in the best way of delicious home cooking. They prepare fish and seafood, Pasta, Risotto and meat dishes as well in local Istrian style.
So we decided again to visit it early January.
We stepped by just for some tea, when we walked along the beach and asked for a table for the evening. The owners explained to us, that, unfortunately, the first days in January are open just for lunch. Nikolina, the owners wife, came back and offered to us to open the restaurant on January 2 nd just for us for dinner, although we are just 2 pax! I do not know another location, which would offer this for such a small "group"!
We had an excellent variation of canestrelli from the grill and gratinee, followed by an Istrian lobster with Pasta, fresh from the sea. The digestiv and the cakes were on the house and when we left, we reiceived a good bottle wine of Cattunar as a new years gift.
Good to know, the garden and the terrace won the first price in 2015 of all restaurants in the area of Umag, you really feel like in the paradise.
Nicolina, Roberto and the whole team, thanks for your nice welcoming and charming way and of course a big thank you for the perfect food.
Very clear recommendation!!!

We had lunch here a few times and every time it was good. The coffee is good, the portions big enough, waitors friendly. The view of the park as you wait for the food is cool - flowers, palms, bench to sit in the middle, and sea too look at.

have been visiting Antonia for about 10 years, always during winter, Jan. or Feb. This is the best time to eat fresh seafood. And by saying fresh, I mean fish caught only a few hours ago. Start with almost alive "Maja squinado" (a spider crab, spiny spider crab) with its gentle sweet meat seasoned only with a touch of lime and freshly ground red pepper, full of rich taste fettuccine with truffles, followed by scallops with only extra virgin olive oil and a drop of cognac, fantastic organic WILD fish with a real taste and scent of the sea, deserts prepared locally. One of the finest.
