Having visited several restaurants in Rovinj over the last week I can honestly say that this was one of the best. It doesn't rely on a beautiful view over the sea but it delivers great food in a warm friendly atmosphere. I don't know how...More

Read the reviews and thought we would take a chance on it even though there were not a lot of current reviews. Definitely had regrets. Food was mediocre at best, risotto was terrible - not creamy at all and perhaps a little undercooked. Overall, all...More

It seems this is not much visited as this is the first review for six months. It was an obvious choice for us being only a few metres from our hotel, Angelo D'Oro, when we arrived for our first night at 9pm after a day...More

We walked by looking for a place for dinner, it was early enough and we got a table. It is very well decorated and also quite small. A mother and daughter were hostess and chef respectively. The food was good and overall a pleasurable experience.

We ate here on our stay in October and because it was nearing the end of the high season we had the restaurant to ourselves. The setting is like being in someone's house and the very attentive owner made us feel like we were personal...More

Fantastic small quaint restaurant with the best steak we have ever had. The truffle sauce on the steak was mouthwatering and the steak cooked to perfection and so tender. The honey grappa was awesome. Stylish and great service. We are returning. 👍

We accidentally came across this restaurant. We hadn't made a booking. But a table came available. The food is cooked fresh to order. We had a lovely evening and thoroughly enjoyed the food and wine. The service was excellent.

really cosy and eloquently designed place for dinner in the middle of the old town with a fine-dining setting. the scampi alla buzara is superb! I think it was the owner herself waiting the tables and she is very kind and helpful.

Tucked away in the small cobbled streets of the 'Old Town' Rovinj...Driocastel, is a quaint little restaurant, beautifully and tastefully decorated and furnished. We came across it during our meanderings around the Old Town, saw the menu and enquired about booking, which is recommended. On...More
