Delicious local seafood, fun ambience

My wife and I dined here while vacationing in Rovinj last month. We had been walking all over the central part of the city and noticed that their terrace was very crowded, and it smelled delicious too (always good signs). We made a reservation for later that evening... We arrived right on time... read more

Worth a walk up the hill, this family run restaurant is away from the hubbub. The prices are moderate. Laura & Claudio are very friendly & accommodating. We had dinner there several times & the food was consistently well prepared. The fish plate for two or three was our favorite. I translate the restaurant name as "a bit of heaven"... More

We discovered Mali Raj by chance as we explored the streets of the old town and were instantly found a table. The service was friendly & prompt and the food exceptional - amazing Chateaubriand for only £22 for 2 people! Highly recommend

We discovered this place by chance whilst wandering around Rovinj one Saturday night looking for a restaurant for dinner. The terrace is a lovely setting and in the warm evening was the perfect place to have a meal. We started with the seafood risotto to share which was amazing and set us up for the main course. We had the... More

We arrived here very late at night after some difficulty getting transport from Pula airport, but quickly were seated on the terrace and fed despite the late hour. The bread is fabulous, served with fruity olive oil for dunking, and the food was most enjoyable. The mixed grill is huge and very good. I tasted the prawn coctail starter, tasty... More

The service and food are very good at the Mali Raj which is just of the beaten track in the old town in Rovinj. We visited twice as the food was good value and the house wine was very drinkable. We had the pork dishes as well as the lasagne and we couldn't complain about the quality of the food.

We were here on our last evening and it was a disappointment. The athmosphere is nice and the service is okay, but the meals are nothing special. Pljeskavica and the steak is fine, but the pastas have no taste at all and the place itself is overpriced for this.
