“a really fine restaurant in the old town”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This was the best meal we had in Rovinj, and I had the finest fillet steak I'd eaten in years! A boatman had recommended this establishment, saying that it was the same family that grew their own animals.
I'd ordered a good bottle of wine beforehand,and not only was it opened 2 hours before our arrival, as requested, but it was also properly decanted.

“Understated excellence”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

Great food, unintrusive but attentive service, simple food executed very well, better value than many lesser neighbouring restaurants. Istrian ham, truffle and hand made pasta, excellent. Local fish tasty and not overpriced. Orange Semi-freddo to die for.

“Good/excellent service and nice ideas in presentation and cooking”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

we enjoyed it very much, only Monte was a bit better and the "Blu" view (Restaurant Blu) beats them all :)
A safe harbour in Rovinj !

“creative”
Reviewed August 18, 2012

In- and out- door tables. Nice indoor design. The food is great- fresh and dishes are prepared with a creativity.
It is not expensive for the quality you are getting.
Worth visiting.

“A step above most of the other restaurants without being too expensive.”
Reviewed August 11, 2012

The food was great; make sure you go up to second lot of tables as the first lot are part of a different restaurant.
