NoStress Bistro

Much of the initial appeal of this venue lies in its location, right in the very heart of the city’s main square, and the food on offer here is equally as notable. The focus is on using seasonal ingredients, resulting in an interesting and ever-changing menu. What really sets this place apart, however, is that it is one of a new breed of restaurants experimenting with taking traditional elements of Dalmatian cuisine and giving them an innovative contemporary twist.


If your ideal dining experience also involves taking in a stunning view, Dvor − with its coastal location − is sure to hit the spot. The simple and striking contemporary interior is the perfect foil for the delicious Mediterranean food, and you can admire the vistas of the nearby islands while you eat. In addition to excellent grilled fish and meat, there is a very good selection of Croatian wines available.


This restaurant may not yet have a Michelin star but it is definitely working towards it with its novel take on Dalmatian cuisine. Incorporating a variety of elements of Mediterranean cuisine, this restaurant serves immaculately-presented dishes of seafood and vegetables accompanied by some exceptional wines. The surroundings are simply spectacular, with a private rooftop from which to admire the surrounding clear blue waters.

Ostarija U Vidjakovi

If you fancy a taste of the traditional, this family-run bistro is hard to beat. Hearty dishes such as salt cod and bean stew or peppers stuffed with rice and mince delight tourists and locals alike. This place is packed with rustic charm and offers plenty of ambience at great prices.
