We chose this restaurant on the recommendation of the Lonely Planet guide and we certainly weren't disappointed. There was no menu but we knew it'd be a 6 course tasting menu. We were actually the only customers on a Thursday evening but we were welcomed and had impeccable service throughout. It was all fish including some fabulous raw swordfish and... More

Nice presentation and welcome interiors. Special blend of sea taste with spices and very skilled chef/owner. Impeccable service, (the flatwares are set down with the white glove!). Really... More

Everything was perfect. We graded our 4 course menu up to 6 courses after we had the first one. Thank god. We would have missed a lot. Service and winesuggestions were perfect too. We would drive far to eat here. For us the best place in Istria (and we ve seen other highranked restaurants)

Opting for the 6 course menu (no classic menu available) we were pleasantly surprised with the combination of different ingredients that I was unaware you can fuse into a meal. Groceries all locally sourced and bought. Owners are head... More

One of my favorite restaurants 'cause is unpretencious, but still offers excellent, fresh, vibrant and tasty seafood. I must warn you many of the dishes are raw, just seasoned to perfection. I recommend you to let them choose the menu, which depends on the day. We ate 6 course meal and took wine pairing - it cost for the two... More

We came to Rovinj and searching fro good food. We stopped at Marina restaurant and friendly lady proposed seabas in salt. It was really excellent and price was ok.

Creative fish dishes, freshly prepared with local, authentic products and groceries. Nice service with a good, local wine card. There is no classic menu; you choose between 4, 6 or 9 courses and you can add your prefernces. We had the 6 course option (see pictures) with 2 bottles of high quality wine, water, coffee and lots more and payed... More
