They serve great prosciutto, Istrian cheese and fabulous olive oil as an appetizer. This time as the main course we wanted something different so we ordered a traditional Istrian meal called „maneštra“ a vegetable stew made with spring corn. And it was delicious. Except that „Taj“ has a verity of fish dishes and great squid, locally called „calamari“. Staff is really friendly and the ambient is warm and nice.

ROASTED GOLD POTATOES UNDER THE BAKING LID IN BORUT NEAR CEROVLJE

ISTRIADUCTION  All Year | Working time: As Agreed | Free Entrance First of all, it is necessary to announce the arrival because the restaurant works by appointment. The second thing you should know your menu so that they can prepare the food fresh and in time saved. The third thing when you arrive at "Stara Štala" you have an interesting ride through the little-undiscovered villages. After you've been doing formalities, you come to a place that will fill you with the warmth of domestic products.  We ordered the veal with roasted gold potatoes under the baking lid. Those gold potatoes are still shining, it was delicious. But for the starter, we had domestic Sausage, "Pršut", Dried pancetta, and cheese.  After the starter, we continued on homemade gnocchi and ravioli with mushrooms. The main star of the evening is, however, a dish under the lid. The veal with roasted gold potatoes under the baking lid was delicious and good prepared. How excellent food does not go without wine we decided to try white wine and red wine to relax a bit further. "Has anything to do for dessert?" "So you did not announce anything!" was the answer. But the pleasant staff
