Halfway between Umag and Buje, only a ten minute drive from the endless beaches, there is this lovely house that looks like a Mexican hacienda in the Istrian way. A pleasant, spacious and elegant terrace (in summer, in winter everything moves to the interior, all in wood and stone) is an ideal refuge for all those who are tired of something and want a little attention and top service. Of course, they should also be hungry because in this mostly fish restaurant you eat slowly, for a long time and with great gusto ...
You can already see on the initial bites how much freshness and seasonality are valued here; a large selection of small snacks that come from local fishermen directly to your table. You should definitely try marinated anchovies, salted sardines in savor, fresh raw shrimp, sea bass carpaccio or something from a wide range of shellfish.
The greatest happiness, however, lies in the first dishes because the home masters of Sole are widely known for homemade pasta (fuži, tagliatelle, pljukanci) of which the rather forgotten bigoli are something invaluable, and in combination with pillgrim scallops, porcini and black truffle a specialty that should be write a cookbook. Brilliant dish!
Fish specialties are the basis of our offer. The rich fish list is based on the catch of local fishermen, but blacksmiths, groupers, dentex, sea bass and gilthead sea bream are constantly on the menu. But it’s always better to ask the great staff to give you a suggestion of the day because often fishermen bring some catch of surprises.
Olive oil is homemade, as is bread and all pasta except spaghetti. The locally arranged wine list consists of about twenty titles, mostly from the Buje region and northern Istria. Malvasia stands out as a traditional representative of Istria, which comes here in a more serious, top form from the Coronica winery.
Finally, choose between five fresh homemade desserts, made of chocolate, cheese, forest fruits ...
