Restaurants in Croatia

Croatia's various regional cuisines reflect the influences of the many nations that have passed through the country over the centuries, though broadly they can be divided into two groups: the Mediterranean dishes of its coast, with seafood dominating menus and Italian, specifically Venetian, influences, and the continental cuisine of its interior, where dishes recall Austrian and Turkish specialties.

Items to seek out at Croatia restaurants include brudet, a fish and tomato stew common in Istria and Dalmatia and often served with polenta, and lamb cooked on a spit, usually accompanied by only a simple green salad. One of the best restaurants in Croatia, Konaba Adio Mare is an atmospheric option in Korcula's old town, where guests dine on seafood and other local specialties at long communal wooden tables. If it's a warm evening, ask to be seated on the terrace with a view of the clock tower. Before dinner, you can drop by what was possibly the birthplace of Marco Polo. (Korcula was controlled by Venice at that time, though many historians question Korcula's, and Croatia's, claim to be the home of the explorer.)
