Very friendly staff and lovely food - Edit

We've visited Artha a couple of times during our stay in Porec and every time we where welcomed by the lovely owners of the place. The foods that were served (Tempeh, Seitan, sandwiches, hummus, chickpea curries) were all delicious! This was the only vegeterian restaurant we found in Porec but it was very lovely; we didn't mind coming back at all.

Pros: Prices were quite cheap, Homey feel, friendly staff, Great variety of good food

Cons: Opening times; not the same as said on HappyCow.

Good and tasty food, very friendly and nice staff - Edit

We have been eating here today and were positively surprised. We had really good and fresh made food with a regional touch. We had salad as starter, different pasta as main dish and we shared a cake for dessert. We can also recommend the fresh made lemonade with ginger or mint.

They also provide gluten free options in the dishes.

What a wonderful surprise! - Edit

I was so craving healthy food and had this amazing vegan mushroom and asparagus risotto at (surprise!) this little vegan place. There are so many restaurants everywhere but they all seem to have the same menu so it's a very pleasant surprise to find something different! Very friendly too and away from the swarms of tourists yet just a couple blocks away.

Pros: Very reasonably priced, Full interesting menu, Super friendly

almost vegan - Edit

When I ate at Artha several times in August 2015 they had only vegan food and drinks on the menu. When asked the waitress said they sometimes use honey for cakes but then they would announce it. So free choice for vegans!
I always loved the food and for this touristic place it is also really cheap.

Pros: all vegan, friendly, tasty

Cons: a lot of tofu and seitan on the menu

Fantastisch! Super Restaurant! - Edit

Das Essen schmeckt toll, sogar den Kindern ... Für jeden ist was dabei! Die Speisekarte gibt es in mehreren Sprachen, auch auf Deutsch! Sehr zu empfehlen ist das hausgebackene Naanbrot mit Hummus und die veggieplatte für 2!
Und das zu absolut günstigen Preisen!!!
Alle Daumen hoch!!!

Delicious food, slow service - Edit

During our holiday we have decided to visit Artha. We found the place quite easily. All the tables on the terrace were full, so we went inside. Although all the tables inside were empty at that time, the place got full in a matter of minutes (rush hour I guess). The staff was very friendly, but the service was quite slow. We have waited 15 minutes to place our order and another 40 minutes to get our food. But nonetheless the food was great!
We have ordered a vegan plate for 2 that contained grilled tofu and seitan, tofu tempura, vegetable patties and a mix of 4 side dishes (grilled vegetable, basmati rice, lentils and brown beans and sauteed Swiss chard). It was fresh, tasty and inexpensive (we paid 90 kunas (approximately 14 euros) for the dish).

Pros: Inexpencive, Fresh and tasty food, Friendly staff

Cons: A bit long vait ...

Fantastic family lunch - Edit

We are so happy we found this vegan oasis open all year on our holding in Istria. It was not hard to find with a poster near the road. The food was yummy and filling and staff very friendly. Ervything was made from scratch with local ingrediens and the taste was croatian. It is good sign that locals seem to love the place and buy takeaway lunches.

Pros: Great Valle for money, Easy to find, Friendly staff, yummy food

Delicious vegan desserts - Edit

Nice vegetarian restaurant with fresh and healthy but also very tasty food. They have great daily cakes (I like vegan krempita and strawberry pannacotta) and also good coffee with soy milk which is rare to find in Istria. Portions are big and the food is inexpensive. I recommend it!

Great vegan food - Edit

There are no many places in Istra where you can it vegetarian, not to mention vegan food, and this one is certainly the best! Everything is fresh and good, from sandwiches made with homemade bread, tasteful soups to delicious vegan desserts. There is a nice outdoor seating, and the prices are very reasonable.

Pros: fresh, vegan, cheap

fantastic vegan bistro - Edit

I was there this holidays with my boyfriend and we both were surprised how great the food was. Almost everything was vegan and they had their menu in many languages (in german too!)The sandwiches were fantastic and we ate really great tartes. It's really easy to find when you are next to the market and you can park there too. The waitress was really nice and spoke a few languages. The location was really cool.
I think it's a really fantastic bistro!

Pros: (much) vegan fresh food, nice location, nice waitress

Charming place to eat Vege food - Edit

Artha is situated in the Porec city center, right next to the main market "Merkat" and next to the kindergarten (10, Joze Surana St). It has all kinds of vegan food from the appetizer to the main meal to the dessert. I've eaten there a few times and the food is so delicious that makes me wanna steal the chef from the kitchen ;) The place is very comfy and the staff very friendly. If you are rushing somewhere, there are also a few kinds of sandwiches to take with you, but I think they can prepare your food in boxes to take on the beach, too. Prices are affordable, not expensive at all. You can find them on FB. I WOULD WARMLY RECOMMEND IT!!!
