With culinary star Deniz Zembo (owner/chef at Le Mandrać in Volosko) overseeing the menu, this recently opened venture aims to deliver traditional Mediterranean-Istrian cooking – at affordable prices but with contemporary panache. The setting certainly makes a statement, with furniture, tablecloths and napkins all coming from the 'you-can-have-any-colour-you-like-as-long-as-it’s matt-black' school of modern design. The daily three-course menus are a steal (there’s a choice of three priced between 50kn-100kn, including at least one vegetarian selection), while the à-la-carte menu has plenty in the way of pastas and risottos and a good choice of mid-price pork and chicken. Desserts are first class and prices throughout are more than tempting: the grilled fresh fish is the only item that breaks the 100kn barrier.
