We went there in the evening. After a friendly welcome, we ate some pljukanci (local pasta) with truffles and some side dish. Simple but well prepared, great different tastes, and with real slices of truffles! And that is something you do not always get in your "truffles" dish! So we were very pleased with it. As dessert, we had a... More

Staff well spoken, multilingual, friendly and the service was generally good. However, every now and again we come across a chief that cannot cook. The best test is always something simple. We had baked fish. The fish was fresh but hopelessly over cooked. Don't go unless you like your food very well done!

We came on a very rainy afternoon for late lunch, after seeing Tipico on Trip Advisor. The food was amazing! We had the sharing platter to start, which was a very generous size and came with a big basket of bread. The meats and cheese on the platter were some of the best I've had, especially the sheep milk cheese.... More

We ate at Tipico three times while staying in Rovinj after having travelled for 6 weeks. The food was the best we have eaten on this trip, and some of the best food we've ever eaten anywhere. And the service was great and the value for money fantastic. Thanks to all at Tipico!

We visited three nights in a row, as the first night we went we were spoilt for choice and wanted to sample more of the dishes. We were never disappointed. We enjoyed sitting in the lower restaurant and watching the chef at work. Who, might I add, was very pleasant and spoke to us every night. If you are visiting... More

The best thing about this place is the food and the service. The interior is a bit too kitschy and seems like at least two designers were at work, having fought throught the whole process. But the food definitely has a clear signature from a cook that knows what he's doing. They tend to change their menu every once in... More

Really enjoyed our experience at Tipico - so much so that we returned for another meal on our final evening in Rovinj. Tried numerous things on the menu; all were extremely good but the Istrian pasta was a highlight. Prices very reasonable, staff helpful and nice location on Grisia. Would definitely return to Rovinj and to Tipico.

Tipico is everything but not a typical Mediterranean restorant. We had a great evening in this lovely place. Personal was very kind. We came on recommendation trip advisor and we didn't regret. Food was delicious. They have a small menu cart but is very rich and interesting - mix from traditional and modern art food. We definitely recommend to try... More

I'm not sure how Tipico raised to 2nd best restaurant in Rovinj... Having said that, it is not that it is a bad place. The good is good, the service is also good. It's ok to eat there, but I would adjust my expectations. Definitely not the 2nd best restaurant in town. At best an average place to eat.

Dear, i'm not sure how is this understandable review, having said that it's not incomprehensible one. Good review is good, you are good, you have eaten good, you've been served good. But you're not the best guest we had. Joke on the side, really thank you on your opinion about us, we appreciate that, and we are sorry that you... More
