We stayed in the resort nearby. And accidently found this garden resturant in the neighbourhood. Better quality and better price then inside the resort. Exelent! Cosy place, friendly staff who enjoy what they do. Kids could look around the garden, when they got bored. Fresh...food from local material... Perfect.More

This happens maybe once a year. You visit a restaurant where the dinner is a joy from the beginning to the end. When you enter, you think you are in ones garden. The restaurant is perfect build into the garden. You almost think that you...are on a visit in your neighbours garden... so personal is the feeling. You can almost even put out where you would like to have your table in the garden.. A lot of the ingredients comes from things they grow in their own garden or it’s from local producers. The menu is meat, fish and vegetarian, so I think you will find something to eat. In fact I think you should go here almost every night to eat your way through the menu. And if you have some special wishes.. Just ask.. I’m certain that they can exceed your imagination. Well... really good food, cooked with love and served by people with a big heart and with a lot of humour..... I will really miss this place...thanks Petar & coMore

I can't recommend this place enough. The pasta, the fish, the wine and especially the host Peter who made us feel very special! Thank you to the whole team we loved every minute.

We were accepted by very friendly, nice and polite waiters! The ambient is very pleasant, you can seat on terrace or garden. We ordered some pasta (6 eur), mixed meat plate for 1 person (12 eur), chicken steak with rice/mushrooms (12 eur). The menu has...a basic dishes, nothing special but the food tastes good. We also had a cheescake, it was awesome. Make a reservation. They have baby chair and they love kids.More

We read about this place in Lonely Planet - as a quant romantic restaurant with seating around and olive tree. What we found upon arrival was quite different. The place overall felt very shabby, somewhat run down. There was a TV playing loudly and we...had to move tables to have at least somewhat of an idyllic atmosphere. While the starter plate of ham and cheese was decent, the main dishes were very disappointing. We ordered the lamb which was supposedly their special this day - it was absolutely over cooked, barely chewable. Also ordered the flying chicken, which was just a basic chicken dish, served with an odd assortment of French fries, some beans, etc. Based on the description in Lonely Planet, this was the first restaurant we visited in Croatia... and it was very disappointing. Avery single meal after this, also St similarily simple Konobas, was much better. I would not recommend this.More

Well worth the short taxi ride from town to this hidden gem. The owner, Peter, made us feel welcome immediately. The food is excellent with virtually all ingredients grown right there on the farm surrounding the restaurant. Flying chicken dish is a must. The peka...dish is also fantastic. The owner joined us after our wonderful meal for great conversation and laughs-- a few grappas to boot. This will certainly go down as one of the highlights of our family vacation. Absolutely loved it.More

My boyfriend and I had dinner at Konoba Bruna and it was our best meal in Rovinj. The moment we walked in, we instantly felt at home. We ordered the house special "peka" which consisted of lamb and veal, potatoes and carrots slow cooked in...a cast iron pot. Wow!! It was delicious. The meat was so tender and tasty. We also had the raw cake which was super yum!!! No flour, sugar or dairy! I would definitely recommend this place for someone who was looking for a real Istrian authentic meal.More

This restaurant is very rustic, authentic and placed in such a beautiful setting. On the grounds, there is a garden full of growing sunflowers, grapes, fruit, vegetables and even 30 different types of chillies! As a family of 14, we really liked this restaurant as...the menu catered for all different tastes. On our table, we had: flying chicken (chicken, bacon, veg, side), hot chicken (hotter than XH at Nandos!), beef steak and the pasta (asked without chillies). Everyone loved and enjoyed their meal; the food was delicious and the service was fantastic. The only downside was the lack of spirits - they only had peach schnapps and a local speciality. We are aware it's a restaurant and not a bar but we preferred to have a small drink with our meal. We really loved our meal here! :)More

Pomegranite grappa is very good. House white table wine is ok. My friend had gnocchi in a chicken stew, which was one the best things I've even eaten. I had a truffle pasta dish, and it tasted like mushroom soup - pretty bland. Lovely garden...setting, very nice owners & waiters - really joie de vivre - stayed for hours eating, drinking, chatting with owner. Ate there June 2016.More

This cute restaurant serves seasonal dishes using their own veggies and fish and meat under peka (a domed baking lid, from 110KN). Sit on the tables in their back garden scattered around a field of olive trees and campers..... Next door to Amarin Camping and...Apartments. Very freindly service - worth a visit.More
