Delicious food with truffles is their specialty. Steaks were magnificent. Friendly stuff and a good service. Cosy atmosphere with open fire. Better to make reservation before going. Our friend recommended to visit Malo Selo and we will return for sure.

First we took food products that they make at home like cheese, mashrooms, sausages and salat. Later I had beefsteak tagliata with cheese and rucola. My bofriend took beefsteak with mashrooms and mashed potato. For desert we had homemade cheesecake. All was very very delicious....More

If you want the best meat and truffles you must visit Konoba Malo Selo.When i feel to eat a good steak with truffle sauce i sit in my car and drive 150 km to Fratrija.Always pays off...

Dear Sir, sorry about inconvenience related with your visit to Malo selo, but you must read this. On thet date when you were there in Fratria, this family had a death case, the owner of the restaurant Neda Marusic (the mom) died. The entire family was not thinking that day about konoba and note about that still wasn't online. My apologies in that name. last thursday they re-opened konoba and i'm sure that the family will give their best to continue the name and tradition that mamma Neda started. I'm a close friend of the family and i'm asking you to remove this comment because the situation wasn't pleasent at all, Afterall they'we just had funeral in family and cooments like this aren't helping in situatuion they have. As well once when you are back in Istria, reservate a table on their mail on website. I'm sure you will see why guests tehre arw like family (know from my experience). And as they say, third is a luck. Thank you in advance, Filomena
