We stayed in Rovinj in very hot weather, which cooled down only to 29C by 10pm each evening, so somewhere cool and refreshing but with a view was important, and this open air restaurant under good canopies for during the day, met the bill.
We first discovered it as somewhere for coffee and bring-your-own- pastry (as the usual Croatian custom) in the morning. Service was smiling and efficient and we went back for dinner. It has to be said that our second morning saw a much grumpier and less welcoming waitress than the cheerful,older waitress of our first visit!
The setting on the harbour side meant good views of the old town, harbour and St. Katherine's Island, and plenty of passing life.
We were later than intended in the evening and it was busy, but we only had to wait a few minutes for a table. Diners leaving recommended their fish rather than meat dishes, and we had fish - good but doubted that it was mackerel as billed and as the boss assured us - the small size and taste suggested otherwise, and the tasty Istrian pizza. We also enjoyed the starter FIshermen's pie, which turned out to be a pizza with anchovies within the dough. The chocolate mousse was delightful.
We had a young waitress who had just started that day. She was thus a bit nervous but very pleasant and helpful.
