Ambiance, service, and food beyond words; simplicity of the decor was elegance personified, wine was decanted artfully with perfection and the flavourful food leaving lingering tastes. Having travelled all over the world and often eaten at top restaurants, this was one of the best. Kudos to the chef and all the staff.

We were in town on vacation and read many great reviews. It was a rainy day on September 18th. Had our concierge at Hotel Lone make reservations for us, party of 8. The restaurant was able to accommodate us if we were to make our meal prefix. I got to choose most of the courses: Foie Gras, Chestnut & Truffle... More

We have just had the most fantastic dinner at Wine Vault. Outstanding food, excellent service (thank you Daniel and Zoya) and wonderful atmosphere. The foie gras terrine and pear tart tatin were to die for! I highly recommend this to anyone visiting Rovinj.

For our 10th anniversary, my husband and I were looking for something truly special. While we’ve been lucky enough to eat at a number of top restaurants around the world over the years, this was our first experience at a chef’s table. And what an experience! Thanks to Chef Andy Gaskin and the team at the Wine Vault for some... More

Staying in the Monte Mulini I'd booked this on our Tuesday arrival for dinner on Saturday night, guessing that restaurants in the town would be very busy. It was a deliberate choice as a treat given the apparent high standing of the place. Lucky we did, it poured with rain all Saturday evening and night. Didn't get off to a... More
