The best restaurants in 2018

Wherever you go in Croatia, on the coast or on the islands, you will find typical Croatian restaurants in every town and village. Octopus salad, smoked ham, sheep cheese, grillled meat and grilled fish… this is the typical menu of Croatian restaurants.

However, some restaurants in Croatia stand out from others by their inventiveness, originality, the quality of the products they use and the desire of the owners to share their passion for food with their guests.

Some of them call themselves ‘Konoba‘. This is a word that refers to a place where we used to store wine and food. People used to hang out there and eat some simple food around a glass of wine taken directly from the barrel, while singing a cappella songs. Today a Konoba should be a typical Dalmatian restaurant offering local cuisine and a relaxed atmosphere.

So if you wish to experience a culinary journey like no other during your vacation in Croatia, do not miss the opportunity to book a table in one of the restaurants that I think are among the best restaurants in Croatia.
