Great location, food hit or miss

There is no nicer setting for dinning but Puntulina's terrace in Rovinj, the only issue is that food is hit or miss. We had some incredible meals there, but we also had less than mediocre ones. They are much better outside of the peak of the season (but that is the case with many places in tourist... read more

This restaurant is in an absolutely stunning location, there's a terrace on the sea and the staff also put individual tables on the rocks surrounding the restaurant. The first night we went we had drinks while sat on cushions on the stone steps that go down to the sea. The second night we had dinner on one of the tables... More

Rovinj is a beautiful town in Northern Croatia with a vast choice of restaurants and many tourists . We discovered this well rated restaurant from reading other reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed . This restaurant is located slightly away from the main harbour and majority of other tourist restaurants, so it takes a bit of finding as... More

clinging to the rocks above the sea this special restaurant offers exquisite dining. Special care is taken to service and all the meals are explained in details as well as wine recommendations. We ended up dining here twice the 3 days we were in Croatia...a highlight for us was the linguine with lobster and the grilled seafood plate. Highly recommended... More

La Puntulina is a quiet nice place to visit, it is an excellent restaurant premisses, with amazing position and view at the Rovinj east bay. You will defenitly enjoy the restaraunt and its wonderful sight from the terrace during your lunch or dinner. Food is tasty, fresh and good prepared. The prices are on higher side, I'd expect maybe 10-15%... More

You cannot beat the setting and view (see pics). Had a 5 star rating on our first visit and then a 1 star for the second. Our first evening was exceptional (food, service, atmosphere) so we went back two nights later hoping to have the same server, table and result. Unfortunately they assigned us another waitress who was more interested... More

This may very well be the best restaurant in town right now. Given that at this time of year most other highly rated restaurants are closed, this is still a top notch establishment. We were greeted promptly at the door and given choice of the prime tables in the restaurant. We were quickly offered beverages and immediately brought complimentary snack.... More

Loved this place. Having just been to a truffles festival in Motovun, we both had truffles dishes. They were excellen. The owners have very cute dog who added to the ambiance as well.

As we could not check in to our hotel we decided to walk into Rovinj for lunch and chose this purely by location as we were able to sit at a table overlooking the sea on a lovely sunny day. The food was delicious and so was the wonderful Croatian white wine.Do try!

Having booked a table we were seated by the sea at the front of the restaurant, we ordered but the wind became very strong so we moved up to the right of the door where it was more sheltered. After waiting for bread for 20 minutes we prompted the waitress who said 'Im busy now but I will get you... More
