We discovered this place last September and decided to return to eat here again during our 5 days in Rovinj this July. We actually came to eat here every night during our recent visit, because we liked the food a lot and were never disappointed.We tried their cevapcici, plieskavica, branzino fish, calamari, sardines, salads and some starters and the quality...

We just stopped in for a glass of wine (house white and house red..both yummy and cheap). We had a wonderful time talking with our waitress, Ivana (not Trump). The atmosphere was casual and Ivana spent much of her time giving us insights into where to go and what to do locally. Even though we did not eat dinner, the... More

We had a seafood dinner there which was nice but nothing exceptional, accompanied by a nice local wine, Malvasija. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. Prices average for tourist area. The location was nice in a little cobble stone alley. Overall a pleasant experience.

The smell of the fish matket did not put us off. The prices almost did, but it is Rovinj. Ordered Fried calamari, pretty basic choice. Could not eat half of it, was so chewy. When told staff, made no impact. 2 hrs later, my usually strong stomach is not happy. Avoid

A very nice authentic local taverna tucked away in a little corner next to the marketplace, we called in for a few drinks and we're very impressed by the impromptu local entertainment which was excellent! I would recommend this taverna based on its location and although we didn't eat there the menu looked more than adequate.

Tiny place with local feel. Food ok , I had a grilled kebab and my husband had fish. Highlight was chatting with other guests. Menu limited but the fish looked tasty and all cooked on open oven. In a corner near the old town harbour.

We ate here twice and were very happy with the food, location and reasonable price. The fish was fresh and well prepared and tasty. The food is cooked on charcoal grill inside the restaurant which you can see. The inside decor is quite rustic and adds to the atmosphere of this sort of "port fisherman's restaurant". Portion sizes are good... More

Picked this place because it's in the heart of the market, food is cooked on an open charcoal fire and it tastes awesome. We had tuna and sardines to share, all were great and very tasty. Would recommend for sure

The food is good but I thought it was batter since I read such enthusiastic comments in tripadvisor. The konoba is not better in quality nor in price than any other restaurant in Rovinj, it's only uglier....

We came here because it's in a street not as busy as the other ones and we could seat outside, and even it's been august, we were confortable. Food was good (not the best in Croatia, but good enough! Nice fish food. But the best for us was the service. The waitress was amazing. The best of that place!
