Dine Among A Century Of Traditions
Our restaurant’s roots stretch back to the turn of the last century. In the 1910s Pula was under Austrian rule, with members of the Imperial-Royal Landwehr army stationed within the city. The restaurant was an exclusive dining establishment, renowned for its gastronomic prowess and serving only the elite of the Austrian military cadres.
After the First World War, the region fell under the authority of Italy. During this period, the restaurant developed a name for its fine cuisine, and it became a central gathering place for the whole community. This reputation for excellence continued to grow, and in the 1950s world leaders such as Yugoslavian President Josip Broz Tito and Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser dined at the establishment.
More recently, the restaurant has received major renovations to build on its past successes and achieve new ones. As part of these efforts, a new international chef with experience of working in Michelin Guide restaurants has been appointed. A native of Trieste, he is an expert when it comes to cooking Istrian dishes.
