Farabuto: Fine and Fair-priced Istrian Bistro
A new place in Pula, opened in October 2010. The menu is a bit confusing, so it’s better to ask the waiter for the dishes they offer on a daily basis (they are usually written on a blackboard inside). You won’t regret if you take some of their excellent steaks or fresh seafood and finish with a creative dessert, like dark chocolate mousse in Merlot sauce. The place is especially popular for a quick business lunch. The choice of wine is well curated and puts accent on local (Istrian) winemakers. Excellent house wine from Piquentum winery, too. Tip: start your meal with a grappa from Clai winery.
