Booked for anniversary meal with aid of our hotel. Fantastic table with wonderful views of the sunset. Great fish, good portions and beautiful presentation. Good selection local wines. Service friendly with a smile. At the pricier end of local restaurants but worth it for special...occasion.More

Seriously, it’s ok but no way deserves a Michelin listing … basic local seafood available in a dozen other local restaurants, no consideration for shellfish, no implements to open shells. Just bad.

Our family recently had dinner at Puntulina. Were given a table about half way down the rock cliff that the restaurant is situated on. The food and service was excellent but a bit pricey. We thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine and highly recommend it.

Often when you go to a restaurant with such a stunning setting, the food is always second best to the view. But in the case of Puntulina this is definitely not true as the food was outstanding – indeed it was our favourite meal of...our recent week in beautiful Rovinj. We started with a glass of sparkling and had a little amuse bouche of tuna pate. I then followed this with a plate of raw seafood, which tasted so fresh. This was then followed by the best Tuna dish I have ever tasted – it was so meltingly tender and cooked to absolute perfection. This was accompanied by a delicious sweet and sour sauce (nothing like you get in a Chinese restaurant back in the UK). Having had two perfect courses, I needed to make room for dessert, and was not disappointed with the Mille Feuille with forest fruits. All of this was accompanied a lovely bottle of local Malvaisa. Would definitely recommend booking weeks in advance to secure your table, as for us at least this was one of the highlights of our holiday – 10 / 10 perfection.More

It felt like they tried to do too much and the quality of food suffered. Fish was better than meat but not amazing. The staff was more interested in serving foreign tourists than those who speak the same language. Too expensive compared to the quality....Also, if you choose to eat there anyway, don’t go before sunset because it is extremely hot and might affect the experience.More

We ate here 3 times on our recent holiday and on our last visit in 2016. It is still an outstanding restaurant with fabulous friendly staff and superb food. The setting is amazing watching the sunset whilst hearing the sea splash eating gorgeous food and...wonderful wine. A must for anyone but book ahead .I emailed from the Uk so I could get in to eat. Nothing more to add just keep doing what you are doing outstanding 👍😀😀😀More

We asked our hotel manager what is the best restaurant in Rovinji, and he recommended Puntulina. This restaurant did not disappoint. The service, the food, the atmosphere and location. We’re second to none. We start we a nice salad, moved to shrimp and garlic with...oil and topped it off with lamb chops! Excellent meal and reasonable priced.More

We spent our last night at this beautifully situated restaurant. The food was very good, the staff was outstanding and the experience sublime. We had mussels and garlic prawns to start and a wonderful seabass with a potatoes/spinach mix and vegetable as a main. We...wanted to go for a red wine and the waiter recommended a great bottle of Merlot. It was just wonderful to be at the table nestled in the rocks and enjoy the sunset and all the boats cruising in and out of Rovinj. An unforgettable experience. Please note that this place is popular and a reservation is needed. Reserve a table at the water not to be disappointed.More

Avoid if you want to have a nice diner experience. The waiter and manager were very rude and arrogant. We asked to split the bill as we were 6 people having dinner and he said that was not possible. Zero customer service. We will not...go back.More

Enjoyed a few glasses of wine on the stairs leading down to rocks on the beach at this restaurant. The sunset looked just like the pictures. A very memorable end to our stay in Rovinj.

The location cannot be beat, tables on the rocks by the water. I recommend a reservation at sunset and you will need a reservation during peak season. The food was perfect, the service was excellent, it was a great evening overall.
