Small charming place (few tables on the terrasse and inside) so better to book in advance. You won't find here typical dishes served in all restaurants for tourists. Instead, here is the menu with creative, inventive and surprising dishes. The owner is at the same time serving, she is very friendly and nice. Four courses menu with a bottle of wine cost us around 130 Euro. Highly recommend this resto for foodies or just if you want to discover something new in the Mediterranean cuisine.

This charming restaurant in the heart of the old-town is worth a visit. In a destination as busy and touristic as Rovinj, it really stands out as a romantic and slow-paced oasis. The food is truly excellent, with creative and delicious dishes which are lovingly presented. This restaurant really has character and depth, and is not a place for the superficial or indifferent. The owner, Inja, is a hostess like none other. Bring your patience and respect and she will reward you with a culinary experience that you won't forget. Brava! Brava! Brava!

Looks promising from the outside but it ends there. The Risotto was not cooked enough and the pork medallions tasted what it was, pig.
If spending €130 for two you would expect a lot more.

Came here for dinner following a recommendation from our host where we were staying. Had the four course tasting menu and the food was sublime. Definitely recommend a visit.

We loved the menu options and charming venue so we wandered in for dinner. When we walked in we were greeted by a hostess who seemed kind but quickly turned rude and overbearing. Only after she accepted us in and after we were being seated, she informed us that our party of four was too large and that we would only be able to have the four course tasting menu. She explained that the kitchen would simply be too overwhelmed (there were two other diners there total).

When we said we would need a minute to confer as to whether this is what we wanted, you could hear her eyes roll back into her forehead from across the island. When we thought we would just go for it but wanted to check about what the one member in our party would do based on dietary restriction, the question was met with an arrogant retort that the chef would surely be able to figure something out by virtue of his Michelin star. (Probably true, but again, it seemed as if the question was somehow out of line.)

In the end, we were made to feel as if were somehow imposing on the establishment, and as we did not feel that this would make for a warm and welcoming dining experience, we went elsewhere.
