The MICHELIN Guide unveils today its selection of restaurants for the Croatian destination, which never ceases to charm travelers from all around the world with its authenticity and brightly colorful landscapes.

The restaurant  Agli Amici Rovinj  obtained two MICHELIN Stars. The Chef Emanuele Scarello and his young brigade crossed an historical stage in Rovinj by settling to the seacoast, on the modern and elegant Marina’s promenade. A charming corner, with a large terrace and a wonderful view on the blue expanse and its leafy islands; and at dusk the church of Sainte-Euphémie adds to the charm.

Our Southern neighbors, the Croatians, have brought the Michelin guide to their country in 2016. The beggings were quite humble, to say the least. In the first year of the arrival of the Michelin guide, (only) one Croatian restaurant received a Michelin star. The first-ever recipient of Michelin star in Croatia was restaurant Monte, which is located in the charming and very popular summer destination Istrian town of Rovinj. Restaurant Monte has helped put Croatia on the culinary map of the world.

In the second edition of the Michelin Guide Croatia in 2018, Dubrovnik’s 360 and Šibenik’s Pelegrini were also awarded Michelin stars and happily joined restaurant Monte with their honors. Fine dining Restaurant 360 is located in the town of Dubrovnik, a UNESCO heritage site. Exquisite terrace stretching along medieval walls and fortresses of St John opens up with a unique sea view to an old town and its port. Pelegrini is a well-known restaurant located in Šibenik with many awards (from JRE to Gault & Millau) under their “belt” or better said on their plates.
