Gorgeous View with Delicious Food

My husband and I were here on a 30th anniversary trip in July and our hosts at Casa Garzatto recommended this to us and made a reservation. The food was delicious, some of the best we had the whole time in Croatia, but even that was overshadowed by the setting. We were there at sunset and it... read more

I have been to La Puntulina last night on a table on the rocks by the water... The view of a beautiful sunset welcomed us just before dinner. Unbelievable! Our waiter, Daniela, has been great all night long, helping to chose and brio always available with a big smile! Great waiter!!! The food was also very good, we ordered octopus,... More

La Puntulina comes highly recommended and lived up to our expectations. We booked a reservation for a table adjacent to the water. We ordered a steak and fresh fish. Both were excellent. One of our best dinner experiences during our two weeks in Croatia. Be certain to make a reservation and be specific about which table you want.

I called earlier in the day for a reservation at the 7:30 p.m. seating to take advantage of this restaurants prized waterfront real estate and to begin with a cocktail and segue way into dinner complemented by a stunning marine view. I was informed that they were booked but that I could come and see if something opened up and... More

We celebrated a anniversary and called in the day before for 10 persons, incl children. We was seated on a great table with the best view as well as the youngest people in our group could capture both meal and the stunning sunset. We ordered shared starters and separate main cource. Great presentations and superb taste! This restaurant can easily... More

Whether it's a table on the rocks at the water's edge, or a cushion on the rocks, drinking a cocktail, whilst watching a deep red sun set below the horizon ....... it ticks every romantic box you can imagine.Highly recommended for you and the one you love.

I'm not sure what I liked more the food or the view? We ordered mostly seafood dishes but also some carpaccio, everything was fresh and delicious. The local white wine was crisp, citrusy and fruity without being sweet. We sat on the upper patio to the side of the restaurant and had a perfect view of the sunset. This was... More

A lot of locals recommended this spot to us. The views from the outside tables are stunning, and the food was absolutely delicious. Reservations can be a little difficult to come by, but we were able to get a table for four for a later seating (9:45 pm). It worked out well with the sunset cruise we took beforehand. We... More

This cliff-side spot has a sea view to rival any. And as much as the water sparkled, the food, wine and service were lovely too. The house-made ravioli in a truffle cream sauce was phenomenal. And the Istrian prosciutto and melon was lovely. Portions were generous. The local rose wine from Radovan vineyard was as good as I've had anywhere.

We had been recommended La Puntalina by a couple of people who knew we were coming to Rovinj. Our experience was really positive even though we didn't have a prime spot on the rocks! We sat out on the terrace so still had the lovely views. Food was superb and the service was great - particularly when we couldn't choose... More
