The 19th century restaurant The Oil Mill House (House “Torkla”) is in the village Korte in the hinterland of Slovenian Istria. It is furnished in the traditional Istrian style with a modern touch. You can enjoy the local food in the terrace with a beautiful view over the vineyards.
The restaurant offers a very dynamic space of the large hall and the winter garden, the private small room with the fireplace. Doors of our canteen are always open for various celebrations or groups who wish to remain with us until the morning.
Our house also offers the romantic small room for two for a short break or a longer holiday.
A large interior space, which leads to the right for smaller groups, and on the left, a glazed terrace with a view of the old part of the village opens. The door of the inn is open every day with holidays between 12.00 and 22.00, with the exception of Mondays and Tuesdays. They can accommodate up to 40 visitors, with a prior arrangement the number can be increased to 80.
The guide in my cuisine is fresh ingredients that come from the local farmers, hunters and fishermen. The offer is always seasonal; therefore we have asparagus, wild garlic, mushrooms and pumpkins in the time of ripening.
I always like to read the old Slovenian recipes and offer them with a little innovation as the specialty of my cuisine. A lot of attention is paid to our baking under the lid (lamb, veal shank or octopus) and steaks of Slovenian origin. Come and indulge yourselves!
The Istrian winemakers have a special place in our cellar. The offer is also extended to the entire coastal region and the rest of Slovenia. The wide selection of sparkling wines, champagnes and wines by the glass are in the cellar.
