The terrace at the Lovor Real Grill restaurant is situated right by the sea, in a pine forest, which creates a seriously relaxing atmosphere. There is no better place to try fresh seasonal ingredients incorporating local Istrian tradition. Start off your evening with a selection of home-made traditional cheeses complemented by a glass of local wine, such as malvasia or teran, or a craft beer from a local microbrewery. Continue with the local theme by savouring a juicy steak, sausages from our local butchers or grilled fish dishes. Don’t forget the extra virgin olive oil, a word-class product that Istria is rightfully proud of. Lovor Real Grill is part of the MaiEats Restaurants & Bars brand, which serves as a guarantee of fresh ingredients, delicious food, and a superb selection of drinks in a friendly, laid-back atmosphere.
Do the sun and the sea make you hungry? Or do you like a snack after cycling and tennis? Or perhaps after doing a water sport? Regardless of the cause of your hunger, take a seat on the cosy terrace at Basilico Pizza Pasta by the swimming pool and savour the fresh, seasonal produce in a friendly and unobtrusive atmosphere. Here, at the Basilico Pizza Pasta restaurant, we stick to local tradition and use home-made ingredients to prepare numerous Italian and Istrian combinations, such as pizza with black truffles, or pizza with Adriatic anchovies, home-made Istrian pasta (fuži) in a famous local sauce, and our refreshing semifreddo pyramid. Products from local wineries and microbreweries add to the fully Istrian experience.

At the Valkanela Campsite, everyone is active in their own way. Some like tennis, others like water sports. But everyone is in search of refreshments after their favourite activity. If you are near the store, you will find refreshing drinks, freshly squeezed juices, as well as cold summer cocktails at the Fresh Corner Market.
At the photogenic Punta Mičelova, right next to the sea, delicious dishes are created that pair beautifully with a carefully selected beer list. Enjoy them surrounded by the people you love, natural materials and a friendly atmosphere in the Maistralon Beer Garden.
If we really had to choose the most beautiful time of the day to sit down for a drink at Marina Blue Bar, we would invite you to drop by in the evening. Then, with a glass of local wine, your favourite beer or a refreshing summer cocktail, you can enjoy a truly romantic sunset over Vrsar.
Right next to the sea, hidden away from the sun in the shade of centuries-old pines, you have time to be indecisive. Are you in the mood for a burger made of 100% local meat, a hot dog made with local sausage, a sandwich with Istrian Veli Jože cheese, one of our refreshing cocktails, or will it just be coffee with a scoop of ice cream? Your holiday, your choice.
