Stopped off for a light lunch on our last day and enjoyed two excellent fish dishes: mixed seafood salad and a Galician-style special. It's a very atmospheric place with outside terraces set into the rocks, providing good views out to sea. Service was very good after what appeared initially to be a cold welcome (we'd gone in through the wrong... More

Should you ever find yourself in Rovinj, go to this restaurant to enjoy great food, excellent service, and above all, fantastic setting right on top of the Adriatic sea.

This charming restaurant in Rovinj old town has a great view. Perfect for a nice sunset. Puntulina is not a luxury restaurant, but a nice rustic ambiance depicting a taste of the area. The food and Croatian wines were great! We had dinner in there, and ordered an assortment of seafood dishes, and the food was fresh and delicious! Service... More

For our last night in Rovinj, we chose this restaurant and it turned out to be an amazing experience. First, the location is right on the waterfront facing across to Santa Katarina island and its hotel; the town back to the left and out to sea to the right where you might see the fishing boats come cruising in. They... More

I love all about La Puntulina, one of the best places in Rovinj. Food is delicious, and the view is absolutely amazing. Try truffle pasta and seafood.
