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

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

Baston is one of those places where local food is found. No italian food in a croatian way (result: terrible, non italian approximation - and i am italian, so I can tell), no pretentious dishes where the cook tries-and-error. Just grilled fish, either calamari or fish, cooked to perfection on hot coal. The marinated herrings are superb, and it´s the... More

Typical "bandit street" place targeting tourists to offer them frozen deep fried food as local fresh fish fr the sea! We had calari and meat. It is similar toost of the places around. B-ark
