Nice place for an evening meal

Lovely terraced restaurant away from the walk way through the little street. Very attentive staff with pleasant atmosphere and delightful food. Catered for vegetarian very well. We really enjoyed the evening but book to secure a table outside.

The restaurant has a very good location close to Rovinj harbour. The staff is friendly and the service is good. We had for starters both carpaccio, that was excellent and anchovies that was not so good. For main we had fresh fish that was good but not outstanding.

Had a really nice dinner here while visiting Rovinj. Staff was very friendly and professional. Octopus salad was great, and I really enjoyed istrian pasta with truffles. Desert was also fine, prefered mascarpone mousse over chocolate.

A tuna to die for. Actually all food we tried was good. This restaurant do not complete with the best view, even if the small square is cosy, but with the food. Reservations are needed in high season.

Located in a mid old town, this non pretencius place is serving fusion food, combined with fresh Istrian ingredients. Great wine selection and price very reasonable. Try fish with Kozlovic Santa Lucia Malvazija.

The positive sides: nice atmosphere, friendly staff, inexpensive The negative sides: every dish we had was under pari, little taste, unimaginative, not very well presented. We had various starters (grilled tomato, tuna carpaccio) and various main courses (mixed sea-grill, aspargus pasta, steak in pepper sauce). The desert (mixed plate) was probebly the best with nice colors and mixed flavours but... More

The restaurant has outside tables set back from the road up a slope. Although there is no sea view it is a very pleasant setting and on a windy evening as it was when we came here, it was more sheltered. Although we hadn’t booked, we were given the table of our choice and from that point on the service... More

We had walked past this restaurant a number of times and the outside area always looked very classy. It doesn't have a view over the sea as its located on the other side of a narrow street heading up towards the Church, but always looked romantic and so on our last night just prior to a thunderstorm we went inside,...

This restaurant is a small gem on the route to the cathedral. It's easy to mistake it with the restaurant on the lower level of the street - make sure you sit at a table beyond the ropes. Service is amazing and very professional, the prices are not higher than any average Rovinj restaurant but you get a much nicer... More
