“Best food in Rovinj, imho.”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Beautiful location in the old town on a small square. Very welcoming atmosphere and staff. Always full but takes 10-20 min to get a table. Fresh fish and seafood dishes - best I've experienced in Croatia. Reasonable prices. Definitely home-made food! Went there 6 times in a week for a late dinner.

“Great seafood!”
Reviewed July 23, 2014

This restaurant is in the old town with swifts shrieking overhead. It has a couple of tables indoors and 3 rows of tables set out in the alley. Fabulous seafood, all so fresh and really reasonably priced. We loved the staff too and returned several times during our holiday.

“Good quality”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

A nice restaurant, with very nice seating area outside. The food is very good, but not outstanding. If not booked in advance, be prepared to wait for a little while (it is a populare restaurant).

All in all, a nice experience, albeit not memorable.

“Wonderful food, service and value. !!!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Service and food are excellent. You must visit IF you can get a table. If you can't then like others you may have to WAIT !!! It will be worth it. While you are there a bottle of Kozlovic will go down very well. Our waiter was Predrag; he has a great sense of humour and speaks many languages and but please ask him when you visit if he has taken Tony's advice and learnt Mandarin !!! :)
