“Lovely food and great hospitality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Enjoyed three very good meals and excellent service at this waterfront restaurant. My partner and I had a variety of dishes and all were beautifully cooked and presented. The tuna steaks were delightful and extremely good value.
The hospitality was courteous and genuine with a feeling that the staff really wanted it's diners to have a lovely experience.

“Great atmosphere - Scuba Restaurant Rovinj Croatia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Scuba restaurant is highly recommended. This restaurant is in the harbour area - walk past the Adriatic Hotel and it is located a few metres from there. The views are lovely as you are looking out to the Marina Harbour area with lights twinkling and watching the boats from your table.

I had chicken with mushrooms and mixed salad and my husband had grilled fillet steak (a generous portion of meat) with chips and salad. The food was delicious as my chicken dish was tender and cooked perfect. Presentation was very good also. Hubby said his steak was perfectly cooked and he was very happy with his meal.

The waiters were attentive and friendly (when they eventually got to our table to take our order) but overall service was somewhat slow as the evening we were there the restaurant was very busy, there were several guests waiting to be seated. Our drinks took a long time to arrive.

The tables had white tablecloths and cutlery was of a good standard (quite often in other restaurants we found the knives were not very sharp and it was difficult to cut meat). Everywhere looks very clean and the toilets are also kept in very good order.

It’s a popular restaurant and always busy which is usually a good sign when you are deciding on whether to eat there or not!

If we have the opportunity again, we would definitely eat at this restaurant again.

Enjoy!!

“Wonderful Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Just returned from a holiday in Rovinj and ate at Scuba Restaurant three times as it was so good. The first time I had the most beautiful fillet steak with a pepper sauce. Although the sauce was a bit to peppery hot for my liking, the steak was so tender and tasty. My husband had fish that night (sea bream) which he said was cooked to perfection and very tasty. I had chips with my steak and we shared a mixed green salad which was enormous. On our second visit I had the fillet steak again and this time my husband couldn't resist it either. We both just had it grilled and it was equally as good as the first night. They were really large, tender, tasty fillet steaks. On our third visit we went for the catch of the day. This was also excellant and brought to the table where they filleted it for us. Before we actually ordered they brought a tray of the raw fish to the table for us to choose which one we wanted. What a lovely service. The staff here were very friendly and it was obviously a very popular restaurant as it was always very busy. Well done Scuba - hopefully one day we'll be back. Many thanks for making our holiday so enjoyable.

“Very fresh”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

Very fresh fish and wonderful mussels. The owner is very personable. I would not normally stop at a restaurant like this because it seems a little too touristy but it was recommended by a local shop owner who eats there often. She was right on the money. Put this one on your list.
