We loved La Puntalina. While it has excellent views and a lovely setting, we were there after dark so that wasn't really the highlight for us, though I can see you one could be overwhelmed by that in the daytime or at sunset. For us it was about the wonderful seafood. We started with the mussels, which were so, so... More

Robert and Damir from Casa Garzotto recommended Puntulina to us and they were right on! Not only is the view amazing, being that you will most likely be seated in the edge of the cliff, but the service and staff was wonderfully attentive and personable, and the wine and food was just as top notch! The gamblers was scrumptious. If... More

Recommended by staff in our hotel (Villa Tuttorotto) so 3 of us walked down street for latish (21:00hrs) Sat night dinner. Alas, we had not made reservations and it was completely full!

We had a recommendation to eat here and it was a good one. The restaurant is very cozy inside, where we sat in the evening as it was bit fresh on the terrace. The service was excellent, with helpful and prompt service. The food was quite nice and portions of decent size. My meal was so tasty that I wished... More

Almost at the end of the town, it is constructed between the rocks in a beautiful romantic place with a wonderful view. The food is really good, the personnel and the owner too. I returned the next day. The rest really deserved it

Managed to book lunchtime for our anniversary dinner last month (12th). Excellent meal, good service and lovely to eat outside whilst hearing the sea against the rocks below. Would definitely recommend, especially for an occasion.

Wow. Not sure how you could surpass the atmosphere at sunset here at this charming restaurant in Rovinj, dining literally on the rocky seashore with the loveliness of the Adriatic twinkling through your glass of Istrian wine. Mussels were great, truffle ravioli marvelous...magical experience not to be forgotten.

Reservation = a must! See the photos! Good food and good service, location is more important. Very crowded in season. Les piers dans l'eau, enjoy!
