Definitely worth trying

In amongst a number of restaurants with the dreaded "menus with food photos" outside, it is easy to miss or dismiss Scuba. Based on TA reviews, we tried it and lo and behold, it's as good as people say. We had good value, tasty food - fried squid, chicken, and fish platter for two (it is huge... read more

We have just returned from Rovinj & cannot wait to go back. We eat in Scuba on four occasions as the food was just so amazing. There is plenty of choice to keep you going back. The staff are very welcoming and obviously work increadebly hard to keep standards high. Highly recommend, it's a must when visiting Rovinj.

Dive into SCUBA and you'll never want to come up for standard old air again. The atmosphere of this unique dining spot buzzes with the joyous sounds of happy eaters and the professional culinary artists who know how to bring hungry people and heavenly food together with grace, without a single pretentious note.

Had a lovely meal here. Seabass delicious. Slightly more expensive than some of the other restsurants we visited but the portions were larger. Glad of the fan spraying cool water mist on a very hot evening.

Had a lovely meal here, the food tasted delicious. Only negative was that we felt rushed to leave at the end :-(

This doesn't have the nice view over the marina. But is still close to the harbour. The portions are huge, so you are doing well if you make it past the beautiful seafood or fish that is heavily recommended, but if you can, have the Ferrero muffin for desert. It is probably the best desert I have ever taken and... More

Picked this on the basis of past reviews and we were not disappointed. As others have said it doesn't have the wow factor views that many of the others have in Rovinj, but it makes up for it with fantastic food and great service. Started with a couple of shared starters of ravioli and prsut/melon. Both were good, but the... More

Scuba is easy to find but not so easy to forget. You can tell how good the food is by seing that it is often full. If you want to eat there between 8 and 10 pm, it is better to book in advance. The staff, especially Tadia the owner, are friendly and very efficient at the same time. We... More
