We came with a family of 8 persons. We were very warmly welcomed. When we wanted to change the table setting, it was no problem at all. The service is really very professional and knowledgeable. The food was excellent. Good portions (you won't leave hungry), very tasty and well prepared. The fish looks fantastic and my steak was very delicate.... More

A group of 10 of us are here a couple of nights ago. Located between Kanfanar and Ravinj this restaurant serves great food at a pretty reasonable price. I had the steak (well done) and it was cooked to perfection.

We got the fresh fish platter - where you can pick your own fish before they grill it. Delicious . Also the mussels and risotto excellent . Good house wine. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly efficient staff. Fireplace in background. Slightly out of town, 5 min can ride from Hotel Lone, Eden etc

One of rare open restaurants during the winter in Rovinj, somehow we haven't expected too much. But the visit was such a pleasant experience, that we will definitely return. Big dining space is somehow old fashioned with nice open fire, but everything is very clean and service very professional yet nicely cosy. We definitely recommend mussels, octopus salad and fish...
