Tasty and simple, be sure to check this place out as it is hidden in a little alley away from the main road where all the tourists walk!

If you decide to have a drink here, be sure to come in the morning/during the day to enjoy all the beauty of the little garden they have. We came here for a midday coffee break and then once more in the evening for a...drink. During the day it was great (good ice coffee too) but in the evening there's too much going on and the waiters are stressed out.More

Lovely place right off the water with very friendly service. I came here early one morning for a macchiato and also tried their small apricot marmalade briosch which was a delight. I was able to just sit, read the news and people watch in peace...for as long as I wanted. Great experience.More

A bar with a beautiful ambience and tucked away in a nice laneway. Laneway garden seating and tables available on the sea, with extraordinary views of Rovinj Old Town. Warm and friendly service and they served one of the best margaritas and Gin Fizz I've...had in years, great cocktail selection at great prices.More

We were served delicious ice creams and drinks. There was a large variety of things to eat and drink. This is a cozy place hidden in the picture. It has a wonderful climate surrounded by flowers and plants and an amazing view to the port.

We stopped here early one evening for a few drinks and again for an early morning coffee. A perfect location to sit and enjoy the view! Very friendly staff and reasonable prices.

Loved this outdoor spot for large cappuccino (14 Kn) with apricot jam–filled croissant (12 Kn) or a bowl of fresh fruit (25 Kn), watching early morning passers-by and waterfront deliveries. Opened at 7:30 or 8:00 am in August, still shady and cool, with view of...harbor and Monte Albano crowned by St. Euphemia. My usual waitress was super-sweet, multilingual and prompt. One morning, after I had had coffee and croissant, she informed me the fruit had just been deliver; so I ordered my favorite: a luscious serving of ripe blackberries, raspberries, grapes, melon, apple and banana with mint-leaf garnish. This caffe bar becomes crowded later in the day and into the night. Address: Ribarski prolaz 4; also features inside seating and outside tables along a quaint passageway.More

We loved the Sax so much it became OUR place in the evening for people watching, hanging out, and enjoying a late night drink. It is one of several café bars with seating along the marina waterfront with a lovely west facing sunset embracing view....We tried many of them and kept returning to Sax as the service, the drinks, the views, and the atmosphere was the best. We particularly appreciate and compliment our favorite server, Eleanore, who is a perfect, professional, and prompt server. She's the best - ask for her! She quickly remembered us and exactly what we ordered and always brought it out quickly with a very welcoming smile.More

Not felt good in this caffe bar, waitress (black hair) with fake smile! We waited over 15 minutes to get our coffee... Coffee was not good. Really bad because other bars close to this bar are amazing. Never again
