We went full of expectation. We found we were the only diners. After the "meal" we understood why. The white wine was 30 kuna each and I doubt a litre would cost that. The food was so minimal it hardly warrants the description. Everything had...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

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.

Got very surprised by this small kitchenette-style resto in Rovenj. It serves home made food, in small portions like tapas but from a totally different and exquisite quality. Not too cheap, but worth the price. Only 12 seats available!

This place is situated in the old town, by the sea. It is beautifully decorated that only complements tasty bites you can find here. It is not a go to place when you want to overeat, but for a delicate and taste-buds fulfilling experience. Ask...More
