Stunning location although a bit chilly!

We just stumbled upon this place and it was lovely! The location is gorgeous - we got to watch the sun go down and a pod of dolphins swam by! It was amazing! The food was equally as good, best we had in Rovinj, although very pricey in comparison. The wine was rubbish, although most the wine we... read more

Our host at our apartment recommended this place as her favorite restaurant, but I'm sure she would have been shocked by our experience. We were not really welcomed but pointed to a table. There was one nice staff member who brought us water, etc. but after that the service was appalling! We were asked to order after having the menu... More

We went to Puntulina at the recommendation of the concierge at our hotel. It was awful. I rarely write a bad food review, but this place was noteworthy for not delivering food from the menu as advertised, and cutting corners while charging high prices. I ordered branzino fillets stuffed with shrimp and got just the fillets w/ two measley shrimp... More

I rarely write a bad review as I select my places to eat carefully. We ate here the first night - great food and service with lovely views. We reserved the best table for the next night for our anniversary. The owner refused to honour the booking and bumped us to an inferior table. All the better tables were given... More

Based on how lovely the view from the restaurant is (most beautiful views of all restaurants on the shoreline in my opinion), this restaurant needn't focus on the quality of the food to attract patrons. Most thankfully, that was not the case- the food was fantastic. Combined with the ambiance- it was one of my favorite dining experiences on our... More

Horrible and expensive food. Fake friendly staff. I ended up in toilet for next two days from their shell fish. The quality of the food is mediocre yet they charge it as if it is Micheline star level. Never again. Rovinj has so many better choices.

It's dinner time and we decided to go to this place which is almost on top of Rovinj. Yes, it's sits on the rock but if looks like any other place on that side of Rovinj. We go inside and it's details that makes you love it. Vase with fresh flowers, selection of olive oils in woden boxes, cookies under... More

Its sea terrace attracted me to take a seat, its not a right time 5pm for me to have a early dinner or late lunch but its good for a dessert with a stunning view. So, i cant commend on its food quality in detail. But no wonder its sea terrace is the best place for the view of sunset... More
