Great place, really cheerful and service minded staff. Big menu, we tried sea food platter for two. Three different fishes, scallops, calamari, boiled potatoes with mangold and garlic oil. One of us had a mixed grill, and were happy about the choise! Recommend ordering a table, for the perfect sunset view!

The restaurant is located in the old town, and us approached via a narrow cobbled street. It has outside seating in a square outside the restaurant door, plus internal seating. The best is to go right through onto the sea terrace for excellent views of the harbour, sea, and passing boats. The menu covers most options, However the food was... More

A small door in a wall along Sv Kriza / Santa Croce street leads into the Restaurant Ancora (Anchor) with some tables indoor but most tables on the delightful outdoor terraces looking over the clear blue sea to St Katarina Island. I do not like cats – and there was a large shaggy black one in attendance – but that... More

We chose this bistro for the setting, right next to the beautiful clear sea of Rovinj. So, we did not go for food. Rather we had a couple of salads and a beer and called it lunch. The salads were just fine. We did see some delicious fish dishes pass by, but I cannot comment on the taste or value.... More

Some of the seating is right next to the water. You can watch the sun set, and if you're lucky and the time is right, you might see dolphins. The menu is varied, the food good, the waiter friendly. Prices are very reasonable.

Me and my boyfriend visited this restaurant for lunch and really enjoyed it. The mussels were the best I have ever had and the setting is very romantic.

Ancora's terrace overhangs the Adriatic, giving us picturesque views of lit up boats returning to dock and jumping fish outlined by underwater flood lights. Once the head waiter moved the grumpy manager away, service was snappy and friendly. Our trio split a bottle of the Cabernet made with local Teran grapes, a full-bodied and delicious red. The spaghetti bolognese was... More
