Travel the back roads of Croatia, climb the winding streets of Motovun and reward your efforts by dining in this picturesque restaurant where truffles are king. The menu delivers these delicacies in a variety of dishes. The view from the village is spectacular.

Outstanding lunch. Specializes in black and white truffle dishes. Treat from chef to start of olive/truffle pate. Had fuzi (fusi) pasta with white truffles and a pate of black truffles. Opera playing in the background enhanced the experience. Service excellent. Reservations are required.

Extremely slow service spoils the image of this nicely located restaurant. Food is good, however expected more since Motovun and Istria are homeland of the truffles.
