It was my first visit to Rovinj, and we accidentally discover this beautiful place. Everything is so cute and ambiance has a soul. There are no meals on the menu, so if you like surprises on the table, this is the place for you.The food...More

The place is lovely and the service is decent but it's completely overpriced!! 40€ per person for some cold simple entrances such as smoked salmon with cream cheese, is simply not worth it. For that kind of money you can get a fresh fish with...More

We visited Rovinj just for a couple of hours and I must say it worth it. It's a beautiful mediterranean town whose every single house or street could appear in a film. In one of those streets you can find this little restaurant, which isactually...More

Small and well thought out. You really feel a sense of tranquility when you walk through the door. The food is prepared with passion and sets a very high standard.
