In our view, this restaurant topped Monte for quality of food.

The dishes were well-presented, well-conceived and perfectly cooked, with portions just the right size and the main ingredients not obscured by over-fancy presentation (as tended to be the case at Monte). To help you choose, there is a water-colour sketch of each dish, with ingredients labelled, on the menu!

The wine list is impressive. I did love the comment about its similarity to the Domesday Book: it is so voluminous it has to be conveyed around the restaurant on its own (specially-reinforced I suspect) trolley!!

Waiter efficient and slightly teasing (in a nice way).

Unfortunately, the evening was a bit chilly, so we couldn't sit outside, which probably has a bit more atmosphere than the inside tables.

Very good service and excellent food. Portions not huge but enough. Pricey but this is an excellent hotel. Cost for 3 courses with wine about £140 for 2. Good help with wine menu as Croatian wines are unfamiliar to me. The wine list is massive and is contained in a very heavy volume somwhat reminiscent of a leather bound domesday book. The menu is very interesting but it did take a long time to peruse it properly as each dish was given a separate page. I would recommend this restaurant. We booked too late to have an outside table but thius did not matter to us . The views though are stunning from the outside

I feel a little mean giving the Wine Vault an 'average' rating as it is really very good with a fabulous and extensive wine list. The ideas behind the menu were great however, there was a too much going on. I started with pigeon which was delightful. The main of lamb was perfectly cooked, but the accompanying dish did not work, just an overwhelming taste of vinegar. It just should have been perfect and it wasn't.
