Loved this restaurant, happened across it one evening and was really glad we did. My partner can definitely recommend the ruby beer and the food was fab too.

Really good food on a nice terrace next to a very cosy street in the wonderful city of Rovinj. Fresh ingredients, very friendly staff, even after we accidently broke a glass. Portions seemed a little bit small when we got them but everyone are deliciously and had enough. Recommended!

I have been to a lot of high class Italian restaurants around the world. The pasta scoglio in Santa Croce is one of the best pasta dishes ever. Enjoy

Excellent service, thoroughly enjoyed our vodka & gorgonzola gnocchi and perfectly lightly fried calamari. Well presented food. Very surprised at some of the poorer reviews. Really impressed with everything, including the price.

We visitied this restaurant with a group of 16 friends. On the top floor they arranged everything so that we had 1 big table and could sit together. Food came very quick and was super. The wine was also very good and the prices were very moderate. This restaurant is located in the city center and can be easily found.

Love the grilled Brancin and Dorada, love the black risotto, the house desert is excellent and worth the visit in itself. The service is top and super friendly. We come at least twice a year and we ALWAYS love it. Top top top!
