Very friendly service and made to feel welcome. The menu offers slightly different choices from most of the other restaurants on the port front and is less commercial. Our food was very good and delivered promptly. There is a good selection of seafood and fish...dishes as well as meat dishes. The lamb ribs/cops were very good. Well worth a visitMore
I walked by the restaurant everyday as I stayed at a nearby B&B and finally stopped for a late lunch on my last day. The service was attentive and food delicious. The mussels are AMAZING with fresh bread to soak of the broth. Wish I...had stopped sooner to have multiple visits.More
Highly recommend this restaurant. After a few bad choices of restaurants previously this was a blessing. Good vegan options for my friends, which is how we found it in the first place. The waiters were really professional and attentive. I asked for a orange juice,...which was served with ice. I looked around to deposit the ice somewhere. The bartender noticed my look and asked the waiter to give me another glass.
I had the stuffed squid which was lovely. You weren't able to book the restaurant in advance but we usually didn't have to wait too long.More
We searshed for a restaurant which serves fresh seafood and Balbi was our choice twice. Generally, we felt welcome here. The food indeed was fresh, super tasty, portions are big enough, excellent in every means. Rovinj is not a cheap place at all, but compared...to other restaurants (I observed many) it is priced fairly.More
Delicious food in a wonderful ambient. We had truffle pasta and stuffed calamari in tomato sauce and were blown away! The staff was also very kind and friendly. Food arrived in 10-15min. which was just in time :)
Awesome! Terrific dishes - especially fried squid with cod filling- that's very tasty! And warm octopus salad with apple and sorrel is very unusual, fresh and delicious. Owner and his wife are very pleasant, positive and professional people! Highly recommended!
It was hard to get a table at the restaurant as they don’t make reservations. Nevertheless, we waited for the late evening (around 22:00h) and got a table. The place is very busy and the stuff is just running around. The owner should consider hiring...more stuff during the season as the stuff seemed very overwhelmed. Despite that, the portion sizes are very large and the food tastes very well. The fish dishes of both my partner and me were very tasty with exotic sauces. We recommend visiting this place in Rovinj!More
The mixed fried plate was delicious, just a good amount, my girlfriend had the truffle pasta and she was very satisfied too. Waiters were very nice and attentive, in overall it was a very pleasant night! They don't accept table reservation but they quickly tried...and got a place for us.More
Perfect restaurant.. Great house wine, ate 1kg fish and it was amazing.. Nice waiter, prepeared fish like a pro.. We really recommend you to come here if you are in Rovinj.. We will come back for sure.. Thank you!
We’ve tried to ask for a dinner for 5 (family holiday) and they had a lot of tables alone, it would be easy to make a table for 5 but instead of saying friendly that they make a table for us they sad sorry no...seat for 5. Also both waiter was a jerk, they burped a sorry no seat to us and run over.. DO NOT GO THERE IF YOU NEED A FRIENDLY SERVICE!☹️More
If you like to be rushed to eat really fast this is the place for you. All they care about is turning over their tables as fast as possible.
If you prefer to enjoy your food experience, don’t go here. There are so many incredible...restaurants in Rovinj.
The fried calamari was tough and grilled calamari was even worse. After chewing a bite for over 45 seconds it still would not breakdown - it was like chewing rubber bands. Obviously they are not serving fresh calamari but previously frozen. The server asked how our meal was and we were honest. He didn’t like our reply so we told him then don’t ask customers how was their food. Extremely bad customer service, all around. From the moment we arrived until we left. We almost left after we ordered our drinks but this place had such good reviews so we stayed. Bad decision…
Vacation/Holidays are a time for enjoyable experiences. Save yourself the frustration and don’t make the mistake we did.More
