The inn is located in one of the prettiest and the highest standing Istrian village, Pomjan, where you can admire the old architecture and the beautiful view of the surroundings – if the weather is nice you can see the sea and as far as the Dolomites and the Julian Alps. The building where the inn is located was once the village old school. The interior has a local atmosphere and it underlines the cultural heritage of the Slovenian Istra; during summer the main activities are happening in their garden, shaded by magnificent poplar trees.

The menu of Istrska klet Pomjan is really special. They offer a large selection of seasonal dishes, with the 'best dishes' always present on the menu: the internationally awarded ravioli with truffles, the Istrian 'mineštra' soup (with sweet corn or 'bobiči'), the drunken Istrian (beefsteak with prosciutto and olives), ombolo (pork back) the Istrian way, ombolo San Pomiano... If you make a reservation in advance, your food can be prepared in a special Istrian way 'pod čripnjo' (cooking done under a claypot), a goat kid in spring, a boar in autumn, pork and sausage meat ('koline') in winter. The spring menu is often enriched with asparagus; they even prepare the biggest Istrian 'fritaja' (omelette) with wild asparagus. Take your time, let the hosts choose your dishes and indulge in the slow food, tasting different specialities, from the appetisers to the desserts.

Beside the inn there is a large playground where guests can play football, basketball or volleyball, you can also arrange a horse ride. They have prepared a lovely picnic place as well, ideal for bigger groups.
