Small bar/restaurant or Konoba right next to Rovinj's fish market and fruit/vegetable market. It was quite excellent with very friendly service.

A fishermen cove in Rovinj

This is a small restaurant, furnished with old original fishermen's nets and other gears. It really looks like a fishermen cove, with an open fireplace, where you can watch your food being prepared if you choose one of the grilled fish or meat dishes. Especially fish food is good, with appetizers... read more

Little place but grand cuisine. They just know how to make seafood. They have proper wood oven with grill so the clearly, octopus and fish come on your plate in the perfect state - what a treat! By the way, next door there is a fish shop so this proves we did pick the right place.

It's a tipical authentic small restaurant in Rovinj. Next to the market in the center. So small!- there are only 5 tables, so it's necessary to reserve the table mainly during summer time. The service is kind, polite the price is friendly and the food is delicious! One of our favourite!

Rovinj is a gorgeous little town with a maze of streets so we decided to wander around looking for restaurants we recognized from tripadvisor and/or looking at the meals others were eating. After strolling past a ton of jam packed waterfront places full of tourists eating some very unappetizing meals we headed into the maze. A young couple at an... More

Konoba 'Da Baston' is ranked 36 for restaurants in Rovinj but this is by far one of the very best meals we had in Croatia. I should say two of the best meals since we ate there twice. My wife and I traveled all over Croatia for two weeks and the meals we had at Da Baston were some of... More

We changed seat from outside to inside as there were too many flies outside due to the fact that it is located in the market. It was my second time going to Baston since four years ago. Probably it has changed owner. I recalled I was well served by the cheerful and hospitable owner in late afternoon for my first... More

Our apartment in Rovinj was immediately above this small but charming restaurant, so I guess it was inevitable that we would try it during our stay in this popular and beautiful town in northern Croatia. I visited 'Da Baston' on my own as my wife was ill on this particular night, and needed to stay in bed. So it was... More

The position of the restaurant gives you the opportunity to check out the hustle and bustle of the main market, when seating in the corner. The menu is just like any other, but the fish are grilled in front of you, and they really grill them on charcoal stove, rather than most restaurants, that use a gas stove. The fish... More
