Beautiful little restaurant next to the water, nice drinks and staff are ok. Meat is poor quality and greasy but ok for a snack rather than a quality meal..

We got nice and tasty seafood and comparing with the others you won't get anything cheaper so close the sea. I would definietly visit it if we got our dinner in time. Who arrived later, they got their meal before us. So that was our last visit there.

Very busy restaurant, waitresses are nice and the food are ok. We ordered a cold starter but nothing came until we double checked with our waitress. Ordinary restaurant but at least the staffs were friendly.

The place is nice, much better if you stay in the back (less tables, nice view). Good fish, good fried squids, good wine!

We discovered this place last September and decided to return to eat here again during our 5 days in Rovinj this July. We actually came to eat here every night during our recent visit, because we liked the food a lot and were never disappointed.We tried their cevapcici, plieskavica, branzino fish, calamari, sardines, salads and some starters and the quality...

We just stopped in for a glass of wine (house white and house red..both yummy and cheap). We had a wonderful time talking with our waitress, Ivana (not Trump). The atmosphere was casual and Ivana spent much of her time giving us insights into where to go and what to do locally. Even though we did not eat dinner, the... More

We had a seafood dinner there which was nice but nothing exceptional, accompanied by a nice local wine, Malvasija. The staff was very friendly and the service was good. Prices average for tourist area. The location was nice in a little cobble stone alley. Overall a pleasant experience.

The smell of the fish matket did not put us off. The prices almost did, but it is Rovinj. Ordered Fried calamari, pretty basic choice. Could not eat half of it, was so chewy. When told staff, made no impact. 2 hrs later, my usually strong stomach is not happy. Avoid

A very nice authentic local taverna tucked away in a little corner next to the marketplace, we called in for a few drinks and we're very impressed by the impromptu local entertainment which was excellent! I would recommend this taverna based on its location and although we didn't eat there the menu looked more than adequate.

Tiny place with local feel. Food ok , I had a grilled kebab and my husband had fish. Highlight was chatting with other guests. Menu limited but the fish looked tasty and all cooked on open oven. In a corner near the old town harbour.

Thank susanpannett

Small bar/restaurant or Konoba right next to Rovinj's fish market and fruit/vegetable market. It was quite excellent with very friendly service.
