The Kvarner is a region with the largest number of top restaurants in a fairly small area that have, for many years now, contributed to the Croatian gourmet scene. They are often awarded by renowned European gastro experts and literature that recommend and praise their authentic cuisine that has a good balance between the traditional and the modern, and that is based on a simple and uncompromising philosophy – a good quality meal is made of only the best quality products – preferably fresh, seasonal, and local produce that has maintained the original scents and tastes of the Mediterranean in this region that boasts both its marine and mountainous landscape.
By applying appropriate culinary techniques and with our creative approach to traditional recipes in terms of food preparation and presentation, our gourmet restaurants offer the essence of the Kvarner region, its history and its culture. In addition to all this, we also offer carefully picked Croatian wines with emphasis on local wine sorts, along with an aesthetically pleasing ambient with special attention to detail and a professional and warm staff.

The wise saying goes: in order to get to know the soul of a certain region, visit its monuments so as to feel the atmosphere of the past, observe the architecture in which the locals live, visit markets and shops, and taste its everyday food. Croatian history, and the history of the Kvarner as well, is full of meals that represent the customs and wisdom of their creation, while stories that have been passed down from generation to generation make this dining experience complete.
The changing of the seasons at markets determines the menus in this region. They are comprised of seafood, mostly blue fish, Mediterranean fruit and vegetables, and essential herbs that grow in the region. The products are usually fried or boiled, while exceptionally tasty meals are baked under a clay lid that is covered with coals, and wine is a frequent and favourite ingredient for most meals.
With the “Kvarner Food” label, we have unified restaurants, taverns, bistros, etc., that have a cozy atmosphere, usually with an ethno feel, where traditional coastal and highland meals are served. They are prepared with the freshest local produce, along with olive oils and wines from the Kvarner region.
