“good but not excellent”
Reviewed 19 May 2014

On a sunny, hot mid-day we were hungry, being for the first time in picturesque Rovijin ( I found it so similar with Italian towns) we took a walk near the marina and we decided to have a fish lunch, we entered to Amfora Ristorante! It was not at all expensive around 32 euro, (convenient) eating 2 dishes with fish and sea fruits, drinking and desert too. I dislike that we find too late the fish and sea fruits were not fresh but frozen! On the shaded terrace were few people, 4 tables were occupied, no more than 17 people...but it is not the high season yet!

“Terrific turbot”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

A fabulous meal at the amfora, fresh caught turbot with fantastic potatoes and vegetables in white wine, staff very well informed on both food and wine, recommended a great local white wine to go with the fish and for 160 kn was well worth it, fabulous, dessert of pancakes and ice cream lovely but the honey brandy was fantastic to finish. Great meal, can't wait to visit again before we leave lovely rovinj. You need to visit, very friendly staff, great service and fantastic food.

“wouldnt say excellent but wouldnt say bad either.”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

arrived to rovinj around mid day, found Amfora and availability straight away and were seated where we chose. The waiter wasnt jumping with joy BUT he kindly seated us and was willing to show us the fish freshly caught that morning. Ordered scallops as antipasta (was served with some kind of cheese toping, i honestly prefer it w/o, but not too bad) 2° seebass for 2 served with fried calamaries and local vegetables, wine and their pizza bread all served in reasonable time. Total Cost for 2 €70.

“A surly waiter”
Reviewed 26 October 2013

The food at Amfora was great. The three of us were presented with a tray of fresh fish and chose one to be grilled. The fish was done perfectly, and the first courses were good. Service, up to the end, was impeccable. We paid with a credit card. Since the credit card slips in Croatia have no place for a tip, we always tipped in Kuna. After the credit card bill was settled, we made serial trips to the toilet, and hadn't yet put the cash into the folder, which lay on the table. As one of us was still in the toilet, the waiter walked over, pointed to the empty folder and said very sarcastically, "and THAT is for ME??". We left him a tip, but not as much as we would have.

“Food and service was fine.........”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Stayed near Rovinj and used this restaurant twice for lunch. As it was towards the end of the season, Rovinj was fairly quiet as were most of the restaurants. On both occasions, the service was fine. I think it was the owner who served us on both occasions and he was quite chheerful and witty although his English was average (still better than my Croatian though).

Food was served quickly and was very tasty. Drinks, dessert and coffees served promptly.

I would happily eat here again.
