“Misleading”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Walking past this restaurant it initially looks attractive, being on the seafront with a nice view in a quiet cobbled part of Rovinj.
However, the setting is as good as it gets. Staff are abrasive, the food is poor quality and expensive and minimalistic. I ordered bream and vegetables all that came was a tiny fillet and a scraping of courgette (unseasoned, disgusting) and a random piece of pepper.
My sister ordered the risotto and it tasted like it had been fried in the sea: salty and gritty. Even the seafood did not taste fresh.
Avoid at all costs!!

“So, so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013

We sat here because of the fantastic location.
Service was OK, the waiters were cordial, but not truly attentive. The food was just OK. My husband and I both had a mixed salad, which was fine; split a 0.5 L of table wine, good; I had grilled squid, which was not well done nor did it have much flavor, and my husband had fruti di mare risotto that lacked flavor. We had better risotto at other restaurants in Dalmatia.

“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

The restaurant is by the sea side, nice sea view for a meal. Service is good and food is fine, except the Istria style spaghetti, not my style. Price is relatively good as in Rovinj. Good choice for a lunch.

“Avoid at all cost”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013 via mobile

This place relies solely on location. The food should be an embarrassment to serve. Even our kids didn't like the food which appeared to be slopped out of warmers. The "Risotto" was simply shocking.

“Nice Location OK food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

If you want dinner right beside the water, this is the place. In May, the sun was gone from this site by dinner time, so if it is breezy, it could be quite cool. We had various salads and seafood dishes and all were fine, but nothing to rave about. Our server was pleasant and prices were in line with other restauants nearby
