KVARNER GOURMET & FOOD – a gastronomic journey to Croatia`s best kept secret


Come and discover the newly fashionable Kvarner Region of Croatia: it`s the perfect destination for anyone seeking relaxation, enjoyment and it`s great for families too.

For a a long time, gourmets and food lovers have been aware of the immense diversity in this part of the Croatian Adriatic. Now, two quality labels, awarded based on strict criteria, make it even easier for guests to identify and choose from the many konobas (bistros) and fine dining restaurants of Kvarner. The labels are Kvarner Gourmet (for innovative cuisine) and Kvarner Food (for savoury specialities); they are displayed at the venue`s entrance and they guarantee the highest quality.

In addition, new labels have been introduced for the best of the best: to obtain the „Kvarner Gourmet 2 Scampi“ and „Kvarner Gourmet 3 Scampi“ labels, a restaurant must meet all the basic criteria plus all the additional ones, while for the „Kvarner Food Plus“ label a restaurant must obtain at least 90 points out of a possible 100.

In addition to the mentioned culinary labels, there is a new „Dog Friendly“ quality label for „Kvarner Gourmet“ and „Kvarner Food“ properties where your dogs are welcome too.

Therefore, while you dine in one of the „Kvarner Gourmet“ or „Kvarner Food“ restaurants, we invite you to enjoy the various tastes of this region and to raise a toast with a glass of Žlahtina, a white wine made from a grape variety that grows on the island of Krk around the small town of Vrbnik and on the opposite coast in the field between Bribir and Novi Vinodolski.

We wish you a pleasant stay in Kvarner and hope that this selection will help you choose a place for an excellent dining experience in our region.

Bon appetite - cheers!
