Bookeria terrace is beautiful and special at night, but don't have view on Adriatic sea, taste of food covers it. Meditterane kitchen prepared on modern and creative way. Very unique and tasteful food. Much more different in compare to other restaurants in Rovinj. Prices more...realistic, you pay for quality. My fillet od sebass was beautifully presented and seasoned to perfection. The sea bass was honestly exquisite! Fennel going so good with fish. Never tried fennel prepared like that and it was the best way of fennel for me. The wine selection is outstanding as well. If I had a criticism, perhaps that waiter smoke on tables where guests are as well. Maybe will be bette mir to smoke somewhere else. But service were very polite and kind. If you appreciate great food, Bookeria should not be missed on your next visit to Rovinj. For sure, our favourite here, see you in May next year! ❤More

What an amazing restaurant, the food was beyond anything I have experienced before. Been here in Rovinj last few years, but never had experience like this. We had the dinner menu, every dish seemed to surprise the course before. So imaginative and ground breaking, an...absolute pleasure to dine there. So great to look through the window and see the young chef at work, all was calm and created a lovely atmosphere. The staff could not be more helpful, cannot wait to return to Bookeria. One of our favourite restaurant that we have EVER been. With whole our heart recommended! Pure love.More

I recommend EVERYTHING on the menu. It’s healthy, affordable and sensational food. The presentation is mind blowing and the taste is superb. This place is a gem! If I was staying in Rovinj longer I would eat here every night. We had the scallops appetizer...and the ravioli and were incredibly impressed. For main courses we have had risotto and fillet of white fish. Mind blowing taste of everything. Our entrees and the desserts were sublime The atmosphere is friendly and warm. The owner treat you like family and chef cook for you like you are family as well. Wow!!More

Unfortunately, the only good thing about this place is polite waiter. We expected alternative approach towardS Mediterranean cuisine, however all we experienced was cheap version of hipsterish rip-off seaside restaurantMore

Dear customer, Opinion is like a, everyone has one, unfortunately. We use only but only fresh ingredients and everybody knows it. Maybe you are not used to the taste of fresh food so because of that maybe you cannot recognize it . Here in Rovinj...More

As someone who is originally from Croatia I have to say even I was amazed by the flavours and freshness of the food we have to offer in Croatia after eating here. It is a lovely and cosy place with only a couple of tables...and crazy vibe. 😁You cannot make a mistake by ordering anything from the menu but I strongly recommend sea food(if that's your thing). I strongly recommend Bookeria to anyone who wants to try something a bit of different!More

After a 10 day trip through Croatia and my constant searching for excellent food whereever I go, I am ready to write one of the best reviews possible and my first. This unique restaurant will catch your eye if you pass by, but only if...you pass by because Bookeria is not ranked on TA so high as that restaurant deserve it, and don't have location by the sea like many others in Rovinj. We were greeted late one evening and were welcomed by waitress we eventually learned was one of the owners. In short, the food was spectacular, and inventive. Combination in dishes reminded me of a chemist who combined a unique combination of ingredients where one can taste each ingredient which added to the delight of the meal. The only restaurant in my life where I can't to not leave review for that dishes such as fillet od white fish and tuna steak. Heaven! Service extremly positive and kind, well presenting the wine list and the chef! Make the effort to go!More

Hidden gem in the heart of Rovinj. We tried food in a lots of restaurants in Rovinj. We are coming in Rovinj last 5 years, but we tried food here for the first time. A big surprise!! Usually in Rovinj its all about meat on...grill fish on grill, french fries, standard Croatian food. This one is not like that, so amazing food for normal price, if you try it you will dream about that taste. Like I dream about taste of scallops and tuna steak, and my wife is still speaking about stirfry. You can go to Monte, a michelin star restaurant in Rovinj, but price will get you a headache. Nothing else in Rovinj can compare to this restaurant. A big BIG recommended. See you next year.Service so friendly and kind, regards to waitress.More

Unfortunately, I cannot give any more points, because for a place that is offering only burgers in the great heat, and just the couple of them should serve them in an outstanding way. I took a burger which was supposed to be with pesto, so...it was something very original, however - the burger was very cheesy with no taste to break it. Also, the meat was quite.. gummy. I hope, that they will improve a little, because the place has a great potential.More
