We went there for a quick dinner and ordered mussles. They were very good and the portion was big. Service was ok, price was very good, especially as it was near city centre.

This is our choice when going to city and don't want to be in a crowded place. Decent meals, however nothing special-classical Croatian choices. The mussels and fish is ok.

It used to be our good restaurant in the city. We went there regularly. Good price and used to be good food. I believe that they either change the chef or start using mediocre product. Apart from finding hair in my plate 2 times, the fries were soggy, and cold. The fried squid (calamari) also soggy and rubber like. Quite... More

Last week we had family lunch. Passing by Torkolo we book the table, though that was not necessary as at that time of the day most people are on the beach. The restaurant is situated in the center of the city, just at the edge of teh historical part. To make our falily lunch special they they offered to place... More

Nice position and atmosphere. Unfortunately, steak over-cooked and pizzas not good. Maybe we were unlucky with our choice of food? Disappointed after reading such good reviews.

This restaurant was recommended to us and did not disappoint. Food was delicious and great value for money. We visited the Torkolo twice whilst staying in Rovinj, we enjoyed the meat platter and the fried squid. Definitely worth a visit!

Was recommended by Zelko who owns Casa Bella apartment with his daughter - fab apartment above green market. Small restaurant tucked away behind Havana Bar on cobbled back street. Calamari superb an cost way less than many of the more popular restaurants without compromising quality. Amazing value and genuine quality customer service. Well worth a visit.

Just behind busy Rovinj port, with its long series of touristy restaurants, you can find this homely restaurant with a great offer of well-prepared and tasty dishes. Just try gnocchi and fried calamari... they will be served with an amazing sauce... just try it, you won't be disappointed. The bill will leave you happy as well ;-)

We knew this restaurant several years ago under previous ownership. At that time, they served excellent scampi. It has gone downhill. The evening we dined there, the owner was sitting at the next table, ordering his waitress daughter around as if she were a servant. Our fish was terrible, definitely not fresh, and the vibe was most unpleasant. Go elsewhere.
