We visited La Puntulina twice and unfortunately the second time will be also the last one. Starters were ok, even though one of them was supposed to be spicy but it wasn’t - when we asked about it the waitress said that she doesn’t know and she’ll bring chilli and we can put it by ourselves.
For the main dish we ordered a typical pasta dish Buzara made with Mediterranean shrimps (scampi) in white wine but that was everything but not that. We ate a bad “Buzara” in Croatia but this was probably the winner of the worst Buzara ever. The sauce was probably made with ketchup and the shrimps (if we can even call them like that) were frozen and they were uneatable. We eat shrimps (scampi) a lot in Croatia so we know exactly what to expect when ordering them, this was far from the expectation - and the price was as high as they served us fresh ones.
I will not even start with the service and the behaviour of staff, they didn’t even bother explaining anything or brining napkins to wash the hands after eating the fish or additional plate for the waste.
The worst of it all was the explanation - apparently we should have asked for fresh shrimps as “THE AMERICANS AND OTHER FOREIGNERS ARE HAPPY WITH THESE FAKE SHRIMPS AND THEY ARE HAPPY TO PAY FOR IT”. This is beyond every stupidity and moral.
This is the type of restaurant that when you see it, you expect it will serve only high standard meals made with the best ingredients but this if far from that so please save your money and go to another place in Rovinj.
Another sad Croatian story where people just want to cheat people with bad food and steal their money. STAY AWAY.
