“Steak tartare to die for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2013

Made ONLY by the owner, this is hands down the best steak tartare you will eat. Amazing find-- we loved it! Veli Joze seems to be a favorite of locals as well- always a good indicator of good local cuisine!

“Very good food!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were very sadisfied with the food, stuff and the atmosphere. The price is standard. We eat "skampi na buzaru" - shrimps on buzara sauce (x4) , one liter of wine and one liter of water. The cost was 100 €. Definitely a place to visit again.

We ate at this restaurant on more than one occasion. The fish/seafood platter is excellent and the staff are extremely hospitable!

“Maybe our best meal in Croatia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2013

... and we did not eat badly anywhere. The truffle pasta was to die for, and the baked fish equally. And we are a hard crowd to please with 5 children and 2 adults, one of whom is Greek and believes to know everything about fish... Great staff as well.

“Pleasant dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

During our stay in Rovinj, we went to this restaurant twice and both times, we were satisfied and couldn't really complain about anything. The dishes were simple and tasty, wine was very good too and it was nice to watch people going by. Our absolute favourite was whole grilled fish with vegetables and roasted potatoes around it, which fed the whole family. Naomi Watts sitting at the next table was "added value" both times :-)
