Art lovers who came for Dance Macabre, a medieval comment on futility painted on St. Mary church’s wall of church by Vincent from Kastav 1474, once were the only visitors of Beram. Recent tourist boom in this tiny Istrian town comes from a more prosaic place – the Vela vrata tavern. Its young owners Jurčićs, bravely sail the seas of restaurant business. Modest, honest and open from day one, offering a small selection of dishes in a seemingly improvised ambience, they turned Vela vrata into one of the coziest taverns in Istria. They cook in a fireplace they’ve built inside. Authentic, strictly seasonal food is served in retro dishes. The menu is small but smart, and you can easily choose several courses for a good traditional lunch or dinner. The wine list has improved this year, and owners are still open, honest and fair.
