World of Istria – Restaurants

The region of Istria is especially known for its diverse gastronomic offer. From fine dining, agrotourism to innovative street food stalls, it leaves nothing to be desired for the connoisseur's heart. In the immediate vicinity of the Olivea Luxury Suites you will find a variety of restaurants in the towns of Pula and Fazana. In addition, you will find below a list of restaurants throughout Istria that we have personally enjoyed several times. Due to the very diverse offer of top locations, we recommend that you also inform yourself on the usual Internet platforms. Tip: There is always a great demand for the listed locations, which is why an early reservation (7-14 days) is recommended. Sometimes, with a little luck, a table can be snatched up at short notice.
