Restaurant Viking Lim Fjord: Review

Frank always chooses restaurant Viking for his food trips to Lim Fjord. He has never eaten at restaurant Fjord, and cannot judge. But all his friends and acquaintances always eat at restaurant Viking Lim Fjord. Since Frank is not native to Istria, he just assumed that restaurant Viking must be better and more trustworthy. Beside, everything he ate there was good, which gave him no reason to look for a change.

Restaurant Viking Lim Fjord: Grilled Scallops

Grilled Scallops

Restaurant Viking Lim Fjord is a huge place,  with really boring interior, but with a beautiful terrace overlooking the green Lim Fjord waters under the shadow of pine trees. Frank went for a lunch the other day with few friends. For appetizer they choose grilled scallops. Scallops were freshly sweet, simply grilled with a olive oil. They followed with mussels in a white wine sauce. Mussels were fresh and properly-prepared, very meaty and tender.

Restaurant Viking Lim Fjord: Homemade Pasta

Homemade seafood pasta

For the main course, they went with homemade pasta with scampi, shrimps and kanestrele (small scallops). Pasta was perfectly cooked with a simple white wine sauce. The sauce was light and just bound the ingredients together, not overwhelming them. For the dessert, Frank chose sorbetto. Perfect choice for the hot summer days. The accompanying wine was local white wine Malvasia. The total cost per person: 20 €.
