Was recommended by my host and it did not disappoint. My meal was made up of small plates with a truffle focus and it was delicious! It's out of the way in old town so not over-crowded and it was reasonably priced.

Normally liked to eat al fresco but as it was pouring with rain decided to try Tipico. We had an excellent meal whilst watching the cooks at work and can recommend the pork medallions with dates. My wife had papiotte of sea bass that was also very good. Generally an excellent meal that didn't break the bank...

Went to Tipico last night. We had a delightful meal! Tuna medallions in a cream and green peppercorn sauce. Yum. Sea bass en papillote was terrific. Risotto with vegetable medley as a starter was full of flavor. My wife and I cook regularly, and this place surpassedour expectation. We are going again tonight.

Great restaurant & service, there is a 'garden area' but we were seated inside which meant we could watch the chefs prepare food. Starter of cod pate which was delicious then we both had different pork dishes both very good & generous portions

This is a small restaurant in old town with an amazing chef who creates little miracles in a tiny kitchen. Everything is cooked to order with fresh seasonal veggies and top quality ingredients. I come from the San Francisco Bay Area, so my standards are high. This spot was so good we came here three out of six nights. (Get... More

Probably not fair to review this one too harshly as I was not very hungry when we visited. The staff were ok, not overly friendly or helpful. The risotto I had though was delicious, the salsa was really tasty and just the right size. Worth a go as it was recommended to us.

A very popular restaurant in Rovinj on the main cobbled street from Santa Euphemia. The first night we had to make a reservation and come back an hour later. The wine is good value for money and the food (sea bass fillets and baked eggplant) were both excellent so we decided to have our last meal there! The mushroom soup... More

Service was slow. Many of the items on the menu were unavailable and we were told the food wouldn't come for 30-40 mins, even though we'd booked the day before. The lone waiter didn't explain or apologise for any of this and seemed a bit rude. Very disappointed.

This is one of the best restaurants I've ever been to! It's located right in the center but the prices are fair and it's not a tourist trap. The service and friendliness of the chef and waiter were extraordinary!! :) Would definitely recommend this place!

I had the pork and sausage medallions with gnocchi. Delicious. Quite a quirky little place with efficient staff (we did eat early on) they seemed knowledgeable about wine (certainly local wine) and helped us to pair with the food. We did a few stops in Italy and Croatia for our holiday and this was the tastiest meal I had for... More
