Situated opposite the beautiful cathedral of St James, this restaurant has a few small tables arranged outside on the steps in summer and is named after the fine old building in which it is housed. The decor here is a light, elegant mix of old and new and the service excellent. “Rudi” Stefan, the self-taught owner-chef, puts plenty of energy into expressing the best of himself and the region, creating modern meat and fish dishes from top-quality ingredients. The tasting menu allows you to create your own dining experience by choosing the exact number of courses you require and the individual dishes which tempt you. – MICHELIN guide inspectors
The cool, contemporary style of this softly lit, romantic restaurant comes as a contrast to the old town, in whose enchanting lanes it is hidden. Creative and occasionally theatrical, the cooking is also somewhat of a surprise using modern techniques to create beautifully presented, flavour-filled dishes. – MICHELIN guide inspectors
Another 24 Croatian restaurants have been recommended with the Michelin “spoon and fork” rating. Croatia now has 62 restaurants in the Michelin Guide, which is almost double of last year, indicating the Croatia’s culinary scene is finally getting its due recognition.
