During its turbulent history, various nations came to Istria bringing along their culture, thus influencing the cuisine of the peninsila. These diversities blended and created a uniquue and original cuisine, namely, Istrian.
Eating out tends to take the Italian form of trattorias ( locally called konoba) usually in stunning settings.
There are more than 600 restaurants in Istria, quite a feat for such a small region, so the choice is huge.
