The best restaurants in Croatia 2024

Best restaurants

The land of a thousand islands: Falstaff recommends the best restaurants in Croatia in the International Restaurant Guide 2024.

Croatia, with its rich history and diverse landscape, is a fascinating country that delights both culture and nature lovers. This enchanting country on the Adriatic impresses with its wild beauty: endless coasts, hidden bays, a multitude of islands and a sunny, delicious cuisine. Croatian cuisine, strongly influenced by Mediterranean and Central European traditions, offers a delicious variety of dishes. From fresh seafood and grilled meat to hearty stews and sweet desserts, Croatia's culinary scene invites you to enjoy and discover. Add to this the warm hospitality of the Croatians, which makes every stay something very special. A total of 500 restaurants were rated in this year's International Restaurant Guide Croatia.



The three best restaurants in Croatia

First place is shared by three exquisite restaurants. The Pelegrini in Šibenik, the Lemongarden in Sutivan and the Agli Amici Rovinj in Rovinj, each with 95 Falstaff points and 4 forks.

The elegantly rustic restaurant with natural stone walls and atmospheric terrace is one of the best in Croatia. Original and unique flavours characterise the modern interpretation of Dalmatian cuisine by chef Rudolf Štefan. The wine list is also exceptional.

The Heritage Hotel on the island of Brač, surrounded by blooming oases, is the perfect place to take a break from everyday life. In summer, tables by the sea beckon, while the kitchen offers fresh oysters, ravioli pašticada and sepiarisotto. Lamb comes from the island itself and organic vegetables from the hotel's own farm.
