Food and ambiance excellent. We chose this restaurant instead of going to our hotels, nothing wrong with hotel but wanted to try local cuisine. Glad we did.

More than 25 years - and still a wonderful local place to go! A truly local, home made cuisine, service with a smile and good wines from the Karst region. Go and see for yourself - unpretentious and lovely ambiance

We dined here twice during out stay in Rovinj. This really was one of our favourite places to eat. The food is absolutely delicious and the portions are generous. The prices were very reasonable. Service is quick and efficient, very friendly and you are not rushed at all. On our second visit, the place was full yet they left us... More

Two words: Fish Platter. Served with two whole fresh fish, mussels, squid and shrimp and accompanied by the local favorite saute of potatoes and Swiss chard. It tasted like everything on the plate came out of the sea that day, as nothing was hidden under heavy sauces, but presented with natural flavors shining through. Truly delightful. Also, it was a...

The Mali Raj looked charming and was busy so on our third night in Rovinj we had a meal there. We both ordered scampi risotto and what arrived was a massive pile of risotto rice with 2-3 tiny pieces of scampi each. Due to Rovinj being busy that night we were also farmed in and out rather quickly with no... More

Having trawled the streets of the old town we stumbled across Mali Raj. A little gem in a very competiive market. Family run for over 40 years, Victoria, grandaughter of the original owner served us up a Chateaubriand delight. The chef certainly had the experience of cooking this to perfection. Along with her brother and sister the family worked extremely... More

The food here is fantastic - this is food that you will be telling people about in years to come. We had simple but beautiful pasta and perfectly cooked steak - nothing pretentious, just simple beautifully cooked food. We saw others eating incredibly looking seafood platters - there is a varied menu that should provide option for all. The ivy... More

We have stayed in Rovinj for only one night and the local guy has recommended us this family restaurant. We ordered Truffle pasta and Mussels in "buzara". House Malvazija wine was great and we also ordered the dessert (Panna Cotta) and coffee. This was the best truffle pasta ever and I still dream of it! :) I bought some truffles... More
