Starter, swim, main, swim, dessert, swim. Yes, the waterside Blu restaurant has a great location, best enjoyed over a leisurely lunch. Relax among locals, tourists in the know and day-trippers from Zagreb. Peruse the menu over a glass of Malvazija and home-made thin pizza-style bread with rosemary, sea salt and award-winning olive oil produced nearby. Food is sensibly fish- and seafood-based and ranges from Novigrad oysters in tempura or scampi and black truffle risotto, to gilthead bream baked in a crust of salt. Simple roast fish with potatoes is also available, the ideal dish to be shared among a table of four. The dark-chocolate soufflé is scrumptuous. Prices are less than you’d imagine considering the quality and view across the sea to Rovinj’s Old Town. Inside, evening dining is a little more formal, around set an old Roman garden.
