My family and I ate at Toklarija in May, 2012.
(There were four of us.)

This is an outstanding restaurant, probably the best of our trip. (We didn't do too many fancy upscale places, stuck to local cuisine for the most part.)

Six course meal, designed around local specialties, and paired with local wines.
Very very tasty, well executed and well presented. Took about 4 hours and was well worth it.

Inexpensive for what we got, comes in at only 400-500 KN per person (varies depending on the meal and wines of the evening.) Gotta love countries that aren't on the Euro for value!

This is a husband and wife shop, just the two of them, they do everything.
The restaurant is in a 600 year old olive oil mill, that has been refurbished and remodeled. Decor is great, loved the ambiance. In warm weather they also have outdoor seating and a wonderful view.

Reservations are a must, no walk-ins. They only buy enough for those they are expecting.

Was a little hard to find (thank god for GPS, makes back road European travel much easier, even though a bit of the adventure is lost......) but is only about 15-20 minutes outside of Buzet in a little town called Sovinjsko Polje. No web site, but you can find it on tripadvisor.com. Phone is: 091 926-6769
