We visited this restaurant for a dinner beginning November 2016. The atmosphere of the restaurant gives a lovely spirit of "konoba' - place where people eat good food, drink nice wines; have little chat - and all in all, spend their time in a quality way. The waiters were quick, polite and friendly. The food was very good - and... More

You can taste many good wine bottles just by glass. Easy parking in front of the restaurant. Toilets are very clean and nicely decorated. The Interior of the... More

First time in beautiful Istria. Heard about Buščina from a local wine maker who highly recommended we try. Charming building, with easy parking, fireplace, bar, casual tavern and traditional dining room, clean bathrooms. Not easy to find but worth the effort. When we arrived, it was fairly open in the cozy dining room with a fire warming up the chilly... More

The romantic ambience of Konoba Buscina is overwhelming. If you are planning to propose to your lover over dinner or want to celebrate a wedding anniversary then this is the place. It is the perfect combination of a 5 star restaurant and 5 star atmosphere. The service is warm, welcoming and exceptional. They are always there to pour more water... More

We always have a nice time at Buscina, we are never disappointed. I would say they are expensive compering other restaurants near by but the quality of food is excellent. We were little bit disappointed because the desert was average but in the end of the day you do not visit Konoba because of sweet things. I would definitely recommend... More
