We read excellent reviews about Batelina and were delighted to find we were staying right in the neighbourhood. A reservation is required but planning in advance is well worth the effort. Delicious seafood of all kinds. we were especially happy with the selection of appetizers which allowed us to taste new and interesting dishes. It was an elegant experience and... More

If you want to experience an authentic Croatian taverna, than this is the place to visit. Equipment is simple, typical Croatian taverna, with red and white tablecloth. The restaurant has a terrace surrounded by tall trees. Inside the restaurant, you will find a fireplace which heats up the restaurant. Food is prepared simply. The main ingredient is freshness. Fresh fish,... More

I adore eating so as people were saying its a nice place I decided to go. But the first impression was horrible. The place is ugly (they could reconstruct it with the prices they have), the services was...well there was no service and the food we eat was fresh but nothing special. So huge price for the food that you... More

We came there with high expectation. And it was even better! The ease of a real Konoba combined with the artfulness of creating a tasteful variety of fish. A good reason for coming back to Istria.

We were lucky enough to get a table by booking only a couple of hours in advance but do note that this restaurant only serves customers with reservations and is cash only. Having said that, the food was absolutely amazing. There is no fixed menu but dishes are based on what is caught that day. The waiters give great suggestions... More

Every dish was exquisite; the freshest most wonderful seafood I have ever had. Reservations are absolutely necessary as it is always busy. Don't go if you are not willing to eat seafood & lots of it! Three adults devoured the appetizer [we ordered it for two & it was plenty]; pasta & fresh fish. Washed it down with 3 bottles... More

This is the best seafood restaurant I have ever tried in my life. Period. And believe me, I have tried many of them. David Skoko, an iconic mastechef guarantees that all of you senses will be brought to maximum, from appertisers to desert. Truly genial choice of combinations, making wonders even out of ordinary or subordinary classes of fish, He... More

We visited Istra and our hotel recommended dinner at this place. It is almost always full so you must make a reservation. Also they don't have a menu per say just what they caught or bought for the day. Place looks very authentic and has a very nice homey atmosphere. It is a family run restaurant and you are recommended... More

It is difficult to find a restaurant that serves local seafood and this is what Batelina does best. Great service huge selection of interesting dishes. I especially enjoyed that we could have a variety of different and interesting starters to sample.
