“Gretic is a star”
Reviewed July 2, 2013

Take the Master Chef Tom Gretic up on a chef's table and let him dazzle you with his selection of anywhere from 10 -14 starters (if you can keep up) - it will unforgettable! Tom Gretic for Iron Chef has my vote!

“Every dish an experience”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

We wanted to treat ourselves to a special dinner on our last night in Rovinj so made I made a reservation at the wine vault. My first impression of our server was that he was a little stiff and reserved but by the end of our meal, about 2.5 hours, he joined us in conversation and turned out to be witty and an excellent conversationalist. I will not go into details about each dish but I will say that each one was carefully crafted with different flavors that just worked. If you want to treat yourself to a special night this is the place to visit.

If you happen to have dinner and they wheel over the dinner menus and a wine list, that i could barely lift, don't be put off because "It's all good".

“The food is supposed to taste good not look good :)”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food is supposed to taste good not look good :)

Had 9cm3 of tuna in 1/2m2 plate
Had a funny taste risotto, I don't know what kind of cheese they used but it was way too strong for my taste.

Waiters are probably expecting all their guests to show up in tuxedo, reality check: I'm on vacation :)

Dear Filip S,

I am sorry that Wine Vault did not meet your expectations.
This is for sure not a tourist trap restaurant and we are serving food differently from most of the restaurants in Rovinj. We believe that quality is much more important than quantity of the food on the plate in front of you.
Smart casual is a dress code for a restaurant.

Best regards

“A memorable experience”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

We booked a meal at the restaurant at the Chef's Table and would recommend the experience to anybody that enjoys and appreciates good food. The table is situated in an alcove within the kitchen giving you the perfect view of evening service in a top restaurant. Philip the chef and his team were so professional and the food and it's presentation was just incredible. We managed 10 amazingly presented and prepared courses and as food lovers with healthy appetites we were somewhat disappointed to find our stomachs telling us we had eaten too much, having read reviews from other guests having eaten 18 + courses!!! The wines were chosen for us to compliment each dish and did so perfectly, and we were even treated to a tour around the wine vault itself and given an interesting education on the wines by our very knowledgable sommelier.
This is not a cheap evening, but you cannot put a price on such a memorable experience.
