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

Located in a corner behind the open market, this small, cozy place has only a few tables on each of two levels. We went in for a glass of wine and sat at the table in front of the open fire grill near the front door. We could peak outside and watch the activity in the market and still had... More

I stumbled into this restaurant by accident. I was looking for mussels but was in no rush, so I decided to take a beer and peruse the menu. The staff were very helpful but as I was just drinking I could not take a dining table. The menu is not extensive and no mussels so I decided to move on.... More

We ate here three times on our 10 day holiday it was so good. Not an extensive menu but what they have is good. food cooked over open coals & so fresh. Staff could not do enough for you and changed the chips usually with my meal for salad on request. Wine good too & very reasonable. Seek it out... More
