“Great food in a great location!”
Reviewed August 25, 2014

We chanced upon this restaurant after walking around the lagoons. What a great find for lunch! Overlooking the sea, the restaurant looks very inviting. We had pizzas, which were large, well-made and very reasonable in price by UK standards (£4.50- £5.50). It couldn't be any better!

“Delicious mussels, great pizza, lovely location.”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

We enjoyed our morning walks around the lagoons south of Porec and chanced to be passing here at lunchtime. The greeting was warm and we chose a table overlooking the jetty and clear blue water. My pizza Adriatica of tuna, anchovies and capers was great, with a thin charred base and tasty topping. My wife's dish of mussels came on a large serving platter and for the small price was a surprisingly large dish of mussels! They were perfect, served in a garlicky sauce and so juicy and sweet. They came with toasted bread to mop up the juices. We shared a jug of the house wine, Malvasia, as is usually the case in Istria, and this was crisp, citrussy and refreshing. Two good expressos rounded off a very enjoyable lunch. We would have returned for the advertised Istrian dinner menu at night but were unable to do so. Highly recommended.

“Good place to dine during your holidays”
Reviewed June 7, 2014

Vila Romana is a really good Mediterranian restaurant, situated at Zelena Laguna. It is the perfect place, if you want to spend the time, eating excellent food, and enjouing the sea view. I won't tell you how brilliant is this place, you will understand it yourselves, during your first meal there, but still, let me give you a few tips on what to try there:

1. Homemade wine: both, red and white. There are many reasons to come to Vila Romana, but the wine is the most important. The look, the smell, the taste - everything there is just a poem. So please, try it. Especially good is red wine.

2. Pizza. A great variety of sorts, big portions, great taste and the opportunity to order the take away pizza make a good combination to try that.

3. Meat dishes. I have tried the grilled beefstake, and it was really good, and (which as well, is important) - brilliantly served.

4. Fish dishes. Well, all of them deserve being tried, especially you do not have a chance to try fresh sea fish in your country, but what is more important - the waiters suggest you helping in getting rid of the fish bones, and they really do. It was the first and the only time I have seen anything like that.

As for the service - it, of course, is brilliant. There is nothing more to add.

So, try this restaurant, if you have a chance. You won't regret it for sure.
