“Best in Rovinj ”
Reviewed 27 July 2014 via mobile

The three course daily menu for 160kn is excellent. In my opinion this was the best restaurant in Rovinj (and we tried most of the top restaurants on TripAdvisor in Rovinj).

The staff are extremely kind and pleasant and the service was top notch. From what I heard they speak fluent Croatian and English (probably a few more languages as well)

It is very close to Hotel Lone and Hotel Eden and about 10-15 minutes by foot from the city centre.

The atmosphere is great and the place was very romantic when we were there.

Don't miss out on this one!

Thank Ivan K

“A Gem in Rovinj!”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

Don't miss having dinner at Restaurant Arupinum. Only a 10 minute walk from the center of town, this restaurant offers excellent service, fresh food prepared in the Istrian tradition. We dined outside by candlelight next to the pool. Stojan, our waiter, was very knowledgeable about the local food and cooking traditions. We started with "Spaghetti allo scoglio", a mix of fresh local fish (mussels, shrimp, etc.) in an exceptional broth and red tomato sauce, spaghetti cooked "al dente" to perfection. For second course Stojan recommended "Scorfano al forno" - fresh local rockfish baked with fresh tomatoes, potatoes and herbs. The fish was cooked to perfection, just the right portion for 2 people. My daughter ordered the steak "filetto", buttery and cooked to medium rare temperature. Wine was a local white Malvasia, crisp and fresh, the right pairing for our seafood. Don't miss the desserts, they have "pannacotta", "tiramisu" , all prepared in-house. Reservations are recommended for your romantic poolside experience.

“Fantastic find - away from the crowds”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Part of the Arupinum Hotel, this is a great find close to Hotel Eden and Hotel Lone. They offer a great value meat or fish set menu, but we opted for a la carte. We went for the cheese and Istrian meat plates to start. Almost a meal on their own. An incredible selection of cured meats and local cheeses. We finished every morsel - delicious.
To follow I had one of the best steaks I have ever eaten, accompanied by sauté potatoes and a mix of Mediterranean vegetables. My partner chose the turkey steak with vegetables. It was tender and not dry. The portions are sizeable, and you will not leave hungry.
The service was fantastic. Warm, attentive and very personal.
When the bill came it as a nice surprise. £44 for two of us. With a glass of acceptable wine at £2.50, what's not to like.
Has to be one of the best restaurants in Rovinj at the moment. Seek it out. You will not be disappointed.

“lovely evening = great food and ambience”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

A lovely restaurant offering great food and service. Locals were dining there on the evening we visited which I think in itself is a recommendation.
The restaurant is open to the public and is situation just 20 meters down the road from Hotel Lone, Hotel Eden and Monte Mullini - well worth a visit!
