Melon canteen is a traditional Istrian tavern in the small village of Petrovija, located on the main road between Umag and Buje.

The pleasant space is dominated by a family atmosphere, which is the merit of the owners, members of the Melon family. They make sure that each guest feels a warm Istrian welcome. The spirit of the real Istria can be felt in each corner and each stone of this rustic restaurant, in the song of the klapa groups and the tastes and aromas of Istrian specialties. Homemade bread, pizza and a varied selection of traditional Istrian delicacies will delight demanding foodies, and your dish will be best accompanied by a glass of superb wine or local brandy.

The interior space can seat 80 people, and there is also  a terrace where you can enjoy the cool shade during hot summer days. There is also a large private car park.

Visit the Melon canteen and experience the atmosphere of an old Istrian tavern with kind hosts and tasty specialties.
