We ate lunch at Stella di mare today, a very friendly restaurant, the owner and staff very welcoming the food was fantastic and the views across the bay amazing. We hope to visit again later in the week during the evening. A great place to sit, eat good food in a very welcoming atmosphere, great.

This was the first restaurant we visited. As we sat down, the owner was saying good bye to guests who have been visiting him for several years. He was a very friendly man, and made us feel very special. You could see that he runs a great business, and the food and service did not disappoint. With so many options... More

Not sure which restaurant some of the critics on here have been to, but it can't have been the same restaurant my girlfriend and I visited twice this week during our holiday. Both times we were greeted like friends by the incredibly polite and jovial waiters. Both times we were seated overlooking the Adriatic and soaked in the blissful sunshine,... More

We ate here two days in a row! Why you ask? Fresh shellfish, tasty preparation, good side salads and nice wine. Solid service at a relaxed pace, so prepare for a longer dinner, but with the wonderful view of the Adriatic there is no reason to rush. I recommend to Call-in a table ahead of time for a sunset seating.... More

Visited September 2103. Having visited Rovinj for many years this is without doubt the worst restaurant meal we have experienced. Inferior quality badly cooked starters and main meal even worse (out of 4 different selections). AVOID. Location ok and thats all you can say. Complaint about starter dismiised, main meals arrived even worse. Arrogant attitude by owner. This is one... More

We visited this restaurant early September and almost walked out before our food arrived. Like many others have mentioned the waiter (I think possibly the owner) was exceptionally rude and aggressive, openly making snide remarks throughout our meal, a shame as the other waiters seemed very attentive and polite. To top it all off the food was average at best.... More

had dinner here on the 29th Sept 2013. The location is excellent but unfortunately the standard of the food and the price did not match the views. The food was OK but it did not match the price that was charged. We had another meal in Rijeka that was twice as good for nearly half the price. Im not saying... More

We were only visiting Rovinj for a few hours on our last day in Croatia and popped in here for lunch as it looked like a nice spot, we were not disappointed at all. It was fantastic, you are seated overlooking the clear blue water of the Adriatic lapping at the rocks, with divers and boats bobbing about while looking... More

This place has the best ambiance and service! Everyone speaks English and the view is breathtaking! My fillet of Sol was to die for, served with spinach and grilled potatos! Nice!
