Excellent rustic food and great service. Set in the back streets but still close to the harbour. Very traditional atmosphere. Have been going here for years and love it.

My father and l, with my two children stumbled upon this restaurant one evening. We loved the atmosphere, service and the food. Very child friendly, good quality food and a great price. The perfect find on a cold November night!

This restaurant is the real deal. They have a wood burning pizza oven, and served the best hot pizza dough bread. They also have a wood burning grill where they grill the meat, fish and veggies. We were in Rovinj for 8 days and this restaurant with its fresh caught fish of the day grilled on a wood fire drill... More

Group of seven went to this restaurant following reviews, all pleasantly surprised. The food and service were excellent. Staff took time to explain menu and its was nice to have a down to earth place to eat. Mixture of dishes from soup, cuttlefish salad to fish and steak. Also pitta bread was great.

The restaurant is on a narrow street with tables out front and inside. Standard menu similar to others. We had the fried fish plate for two which arrived quickly and piping hot. The hot pitta bread was good.The fish was fresh and tasty though maybe a bit bony for some, That said overall the service was friendly and efficient, they... More

Restaurant is in a small street away from the crowds so you can enjoy the good food in peace. The food it self was great and with good size portions (we had wild tuna, octopus salad and mixed seashells). Service prompt and not assertive. I would go again.

So pleased we decided to choose Neptun to eat, wish we had found sooner. It's a beautiful nautical looking restaurant behind the sea front (roughly behind Aqua 2). Anything on the menu would have been amazing, this appears to be Italian/Croatian themed. They are utilising ingredients in season and whatever the fisherman has caught. We had a Greek salad, steak,... More

Lunch, two families with two kids each. the staff provided some easy activities for the kids to keep them occupied while waiting, which by the way didn´t take long. This is not a fancy jet set restaurang but we weren´t looking for those kind of places. They got the point: eating fresh and tasty food with a great touch of... More

Our meal here was good, but spoilt by feeling uncomfortably hot throughout. We did notice no one else was eating inside, but didn't realise till afterwards why. It was like an oven. Sitting eating while sweating is not much fun. There is a really good selection of meals here. There is also the option to pay by card; however please... More
