Came there on recommendation and had high expectations. Can't say that anything we tried was bad. The whole story behind the place is amazing and that something that makes this place unique. Yes, prices are high, but , you live once...Right :-)

This restauarnt is set in a lovely old mill building, almost in the middle of nowhere, with a very small number of tables & a total 'one man show'! Fascinating experience but you need a LOT of time & fairly deep pockets. Our meal took almost 3 hours but each dish is individually prepared & freshly cooked using primarily local... More

My 5th time in Toklarija and each time they show amazing quality of the plates and wine. Best place in Istria and above. Deep respect, Mladen Vlaski (Sarajevo)

Food is beyond delicious. They are said that everything they preparing is from their garden, and only thing they buy is salt and pepper. It was 5 kind of dish during dinner, and all was just great. We're also drinking wine (for every dish another bottle) and it was fine. Only thing that we didin't like so much is the... More

We vacation in Istria almost every year so I am always looking for new places and experiences. Konoba Toklarija was wonderful in every way. Just driving and finding it was an experience in itself. Once we arrived, the tavern seemed like it was out of the pages of an old fairly tale book. So beautiful. There were 4 of us... More

A ‘slow food place’. A small but chick ‘konoba’ situated in the middle of Istrian nowhere. Romantic garden with two ancient Lebanese cedars and perfectly maintained lawn. They serve six courses of typically Istrian dishes. No menu card available. Dishes are orthodox but very well presented, prepared of high quality ingredients. Good service. A braver use of spices and a... More

We saw a couple of reviews of this restaurant and decided we had to go on our visit to Istria. If we hadn't heard about it in advance, there is no way you would just 'stumble' across it as it is in a tiny town of half a dozen houses down small roads in the middle of nowhere. But what... More

This small hidden gem is one of the best taverns in Istria and Croatia. Be sure to make a reservation but no due to crowd but as it might not be open if you come unannounced. The food is great, but be prepared the meal is going to take several hours.
