I'm honestly baffled this establishment has more than 1-2 stars. My husband and I visited Rovinj on our honeymoon- and suffice it to say, nothing but a truly terrible experience could've warranted a negative review during such a wonderful trip. I am not one to leave poor reviews, but over a month later, I am still thinking about this terrible... More

We spotted this restaurant when we last visited Rovinj in April. They had only just opened and we had a lovely chat outside with the owner, looked at the menu and were very disappointed that we weren't able to try it out then as we had already eaten and were going home the following day. On our second trip to... More

We booked this restaurant after walking around the old town during the daytime and spotting this place. It looked quaint and interesting and after speaking to the owner we asked if we could view the menu. It was all hand written in beautiful writing. We were sold and booked for that evening. The meal was absolutely fantastic, each course presented... More

The cuisine was a joke. Tiny portions trying to imitate good quality restaurants in major cities. An "amuse bouche" consisted of a square of dry brown sliced bread topped with tinned tuna mixed with mayonnaise. The fish main courses were undercooked and tiny. When it came to paying the bill we were informed that they didn't accept cards only cash.... More

Dear Mr Bernard, Thank you for your post. We are sorry that you were not satisfied with our menu. The fish that you have ordered is called sole (in Croatian: list = leaf) - so the fish body is flat and by nature thin. On the other hand we never serve “Amuse Bouche” with mayonnaise, so I have to assume... More

My husband and I were slightly miffed about the quality of food we were finding in Croatia. Lunchtime yesterday we found Ulika and Ina. The restaurant opened in an hour, could we come back then. I left praying the menu tasted as good as it sounded. 1pm, sat outside and Ina (the owner and waitperson) made some recommendations; we took... More

Hands down the best restaurant in town. If you are looking for fresh and local you have found it. The owner was so nice and made us feel comfortable and joyful while enjoying her delicious cuisine. Very clever with their food. Well done job all the way around. Save room for dessert. Beautiful spot.

When we ordered an app and an entree each, we were told it was "not that kind of restaurant" and had to order another dish (totalling 500 kuna each) because they have a Michelin star! Except I did my research before I travelled to Croatia - either they got it yesterday or just another tourist trap! So, we paid for... More

A little off the beaten track even in a small town like Roving. But worth the effort. Food excellent. Wine list varied. Great hostess.

This is the best food I've had in Croatia. I've been here over a week and I've been to several of the best restaurants. The service is top notch as the restaurant is small, intimate and quite romantic. We only waited about 15 minutes! I've noticed that we sometimes wait up to, or more than an hour for the main...

This is the best restaurant we have visited in Istria. Exceptionally good food, with an elegant and intimate setting in the center of the old town. The owner herself who speaks fluently three languages serves the food.
