This restaurant deserves its high rating. The service is efficient and friendly and the cuisine even better. The menu is extensive but not complicated. Just very well done. It's not cramped like a lot of other restaurants in the old town. It's not on the waterfront and in our experience that's a good thing. We got lucky tonight but reservations... More

We turned up at the correct time, but were left standing waiting for quite a while, no information as to the delay, or apology. We then waited ages before anyone offered us a drink once seated. The food was good,... More

We had the excellent grilled fish platter for 2 with four types of fish and seafood plus vegetables. It is a lovely outdoor setting just away from the busy thoroughfare. A most enjoyable evening with very good service.

This was out first visit to Sante Croce. We were not disappointed. My companion had the octopus salad which was smaller than others we have tried in Rovinj but was just the right size. I had the pecorino salad ( also called mutton cheese salad!) which was very fish and delicious. To follow the pasta with truffle which was lovely... More

A simple meal but well executed .... three teenagers very happy! Good value & quality and even though we hadn't booked we waited just a few minutes and were accommodated .... however probably best to book as its very popular!

Tucked away in the old town, this restaurant has a lovely terrace. We made a reservation as is was very popular. Excellent food and very good service, went back at end of week as we enjoyed it so much.
