I walked by the restaurant everyday as I stayed at a nearby B&B and finally stopped for a late lunch on my last day. The service was attentive and food delicious. The mussels are AMAZING with fresh bread to soak of the broth. Wish I...had stopped sooner to have multiple visits.More

Highly recommend this restaurant. After a few bad choices of restaurants previously this was a blessing. Good vegan options for my friends, which is how we found it in the first place. The waiters were really professional and attentive. I asked for a orange juice,...which was served with ice. I looked around to deposit the ice somewhere. The bartender noticed my look and asked the waiter to give me another glass. I had the stuffed squid which was lovely. You weren't able to book the restaurant in advance but we usually didn't have to wait too long.More

We searshed for a restaurant which serves fresh seafood and Balbi was our choice twice. Generally, we felt welcome here. The food indeed was fresh, super tasty, portions are big enough, excellent in every means. Rovinj is not a cheap place at all, but compared...to other restaurants (I observed many) it is priced fairly.More

Delicious food in a wonderful ambient. We had truffle pasta and stuffed calamari in tomato sauce and were blown away! The staff was also very kind and friendly. Food arrived in 10-15min. which was just in time :)

Awesome! Terrific dishes - especially fried squid with cod filling- that's very tasty! And warm octopus salad with apple and sorrel is very unusual, fresh and delicious. Owner and his wife are very pleasant, positive and professional people! Highly recommended!

Delicious dinner in the centre of Rovinj! I ate here a tasty steak of tuna with sesame and a fennel salad, for an affordable price. Suggested!

It was hard to get a table at the restaurant as they don’t make reservations. Nevertheless, we waited for the late evening (around 22:00h) and got a table. The place is very busy and the stuff is just running around. The owner should consider hiring...more stuff during the season as the stuff seemed very overwhelmed. Despite that, the portion sizes are very large and the food tastes very well. The fish dishes of both my partner and me were very tasty with exotic sauces. We recommend visiting this place in Rovinj!More

I'm not sure, you should contact the restaurant directly and ask them about it.
