After 5 days in intricacy of repetitively un-exciting Italianesque food to find a menu not based on Italian cuisine was in itself a welcome releif, but when that food exceeds some of the better 1 and 2 star Michelin restaurants you have eaten at, but at an unbelievably reasonable price it is a dream come true. We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine parings , aperitifs, coffees and a digestif for two people for £250. The taste combinations were unusual and exciting, my partner who does not eat fish ate three fish dishes that were so good he even said the seared Tuna was his favourite of the dinner. Dessert was perhaps the least exciting but by then this was not an issue. The parings with often local wines was excellent, and an unusual but memorable Chilean Riesling with the Fois Gras was extremely good. If you are in Rovinj you must eat here (but leave room for our next visit please !)

When we entered the restaurant there were about 6 waiters all standing around chatting. They looked up at us but said nothing or made no effort to engage. We had to ask them if they were still serving! this was not a good start for a fine dining restaurant. The menu is quite pretentious but the food at least lived up to the hype. however, we were shocked when the bill arrived to discover the bottle of still water cost more than our wine! We found this disingenuous and is a cheap trick of taking advantage of your guests. That single detail can ruin everything else because the true colours of the owner are laid bare. It's a dreadful shame because the food was very good and, in the end, our waiter was warm and attentive.

Dear Londontraveller50,

I am sorry that your recant visit was not all the way successful. I assure you that we are not trying to take advantage of our guests billing them high prices for water. You would pay for that brand of water same amount in any city in Europe. On the other hand I am glad that you have enjoyed your food and that service staff was wart and attentive.

Thank you again.

We had the tasting menu and it was very good, not an excellent from me because I found some of the courses to sweet even though they were a savoury course.

The service was excellent
I would dine there again if in Rovinj

An excellent choice of wines... I think it was 500 the waiter said. Well we tried a few and they were superb.

Food very good, great presentation and a lovely pleasant atmosphere looking out over the bay. Expensive in the £200 mark but if you are out for a special meal then very worthy
