Our last night in Rovinj and after looking at menus for several days choose Santa Croce which is located up the same street (Sv Kirz) as several other places including as Puntalina which is last one on the left by the water. There is no water front dinning but the out door terrace was nice and away from the busy... More

Two of us shared a seafood spaghetti and squid stuffed with mushrooms. Also had aperol spritz for drinks. We can recommend the seafood spaghetti. Service was also friendly and good. We would come here again!:)

We decided to have dinner here after looking on trip Advisor and we weren't disappointed, The food was fantastic and the service was second to none. Neither myself or boyfriend are big wine drinkers so we asked advice on which wine to have with our food, Maria the waitress was brilliant - her choice of wine which we both enjoyed.... More

Visited this restaurant on 1st October as had read the reviews on Trip Advisor. The location is on a cobbled side on the way up from the harbour before the Puntalina. It has a beautiful stepped terrace location on the street and is very welcoming. I recommend you book though as it was full by 7.40pm. The service was good... More

Tucked away just behind the coast beyond the main square of Rovinj this restaurant has a large terrace but no view. However the food makes up for it. Excellent seafood pasta and fish dishes with very caring staff. Good quality. We ate there twice.

This restaurant deserves its high rating. The service is efficient and friendly and the cuisine even better. The menu is extensive but not complicated. Just very well done. It's not cramped like a lot of other restaurants in the old town. It's not on the waterfront and in our experience that's a good thing. We got lucky tonight but reservations... More
