Restaurants & Bars
The cosy yet intimate atmosphere of the Adriatic is perfect if you want to enjoy our trendy dishes inspired by the locality and the influence of the French Riviera or just relax with a glass of whiskey or wine accompanied by the view of the town’s main square and harbour. No wonder it is popularly called Rovinj’s living room.
Restaurants & Bars
Start the day with à la carte breakfast served from 7 o’clock in the intimate atmosphere of the French brasserie-style open-kitchen restaurant. The Brasserie Adriatic menu changes during the day – after breakfast, served until noon, it offers a light lunch with a view of Rovinj’s busy streets. Both the lunch and dinner menus offer meat and fish dishes showcasing local flavours such as ravioli stuffed with curd and pljukanci pasta with truffles. When you are surrounded by works of art, time seems to slow, especially if you also happen to be sipping a glass of wine.
With its artistic decor, one of the largest selections of whiskey in Croatia, and cult status among locals for their obligatory coffee, Caffe Bar Adriatic offers a welcome respite. Take a well-deserved break after a stroll through the narrow streets of Rovinj’s old town and enjoy a coffee and cake or try some of the world’s best whiskeys or a classic cocktail.
You will immediately be transported back in time with some of the oldest dishes of traditional fishermen’s cuisine served only at Kantinon and the authentic atmosphere loved by locals and tourists alike. Seafood ragout, Istrian žgvacet (stew) or boškarin ox cheeks slow-cooked for 12 hours are made with fresh, locally grown and foraged ingredients. A large barrel still stands in the restaurant as a reminder that this place was once a wine cellar, after which Kantinon got its name. Grab a table on the terrace and enjoy the view of the church of St Euphemia and the fishing port.
Another local favourite, where Rovinj’s residents drink their morning coffee on the open-air terrace. Café Al Ponto stands in the very centre of the town and offers a wide selection of hot and cold beverages, cakes and ice cream. After your morning coffee with the locals, stop by the vibrant market.
