“Good food”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This restaurant is almost always crowded. And the reason is simple. Good location and good food. I live in Rovinj a couple of months every summer and this is a place I like to return to. Nothing fancy just good.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

This is a great restaurant in Rovinj. Excellent service and food. It is usually full, so you have to wait for a table, but you can sit down in the wine bar opposite and chill with a glass of nice white wine while waiting. For it is well worth waiting for.

Balbi became our favorite restaurant in Rovinj and we visited several times. All times the service was perfect and food excellent. We tried most of the dishes on the meny and also the children found nice pasta.

I do really reccomend everyone visiting Rovinj to not miss out of this great place!

“Good food on the cobbled streets of Rovinj!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

This place was lovely. There was always a queue outside this restaurant whenever we walked past but the food looked amazing, mainly seafood. There was a massive queue when we arrived but we were prepared to wait, not long though as we were seated within minutes. We managed to get a seat outside which was great for people watching as the streets were so busy. We opted for seafood. Very tasty fish and a good variety too. We got a platter for 2 and we had mussels, seabass, octopus, calamari and more. Beware the heads were left on the fish and the bones too! There was a lovely atmosphere, Highly recommend it!
