Stunning restaurant, we got a table on the rocks with the waves lapping around us. Delicious hors d'oeuvres and 1st course of truffle ravioli. My sea bass main was a little disappointing as over cooked and flavours of sauce were unidentifiable. However my 3 dining companions couldn't fault theirs. Book well in advance and relish in the view.

Perfect place in a beautiful location serving good local food and wine. Friendly service, nice views. Try local pasta with shrimps, calamari with local Malvasia or Chardonnay.

Pleasant and elegant, superb view (especially for sunset!), the most perfect octopus salad ever (dare not miss it :-), delicious cakes, painterly food styling, yet laid back atmosphere. Not cheap though, but it's worth a special evening.

The important thing is that the seafood is very good, so definitely recommended. We were there for a lunch and in the sunshine it was a bit too hot. No wifi. Our first impression was fairly negative as we were greeted by two obnoxious waiters. We had no reservation and asked for a table. The first reaction was: go away.... More

We booked this restaurant via or hotel for our 2nd night. We turned up for our table, but spent a good 10 minutes standing there whilst waiters ignored us. Eventually we flagged one down, who went and asked a man who appeared to be in charge about our table. The man did not address us, but pointed to a table... More

Best restaurant in Rovinj period. It's always busy so make sure to book in advance. Highlights include dishes with truffles (different kind of fish) and delicious octopus salad. Would recommend to ask for the seaside terrace it is especially beautiful during the sunsets and provides relaxing holiday atmosphere. The staff are friendly and offer good wine recommendations.

It's hard to write this and not sound pretentious however whilst the restaurant is located in an absolutely exquisite location, on the rocks right by the sea and the service and presentstion are good the food somewhat disappoints, particularly given the fact that reservations need to be made two days in advance and the price level is well above Croatian...

As a restauranteur I always look for the small details and La Puntulina truly deliver. A family business that makes you feel special from the moment you enter. An exceptional experience delivering the best of Croatia without pretence in an unrivalled location. Croatian wine at its best, superb food and all from the best of Istria. Would fly from London...
