Restarants we recommend in croatia

Submitted by |

I’m living in Croatia for 4 Jears now, through that period I have seen whole country because of my job, and numerous restaurants visited (around 200-300 different).

Between all of them, there are three I would like to describe more and to very much recommend.

1. Black Cat in Split
The restaurant is not especially big, but there is very pleasant and cozy Terrace outside. I went through whole menu, and everything I’ve tried was at least very good. However, here are few examples I would like to recommend especially:
Excellence salad – the best I’ve ever tried
Excellence Thai Curry – simply delicious
Cookies with cheese and lemon – the life is sweeter after that!

2. Fort Apache in Samobor

Good Steak is very hard to find in Croatia. A man from Samobor noticed this problem, he went 6 Moths to USA to learn how to make real Steaks, I can say for sure: he was excellent student.
After he came back he has built big restaurant, in wood and Western stile, around 10km from Zagreb. Steaks you eat here are simply fantastic and by my personal opinion unique in whole Europe, among really many steaks I have eated.

Also, here you can find two more things, not so often possible to find in Croatia:
Play corner inside and playground outside for the children.
-Really big choice of foreign wines that go perfect with meat

3. Mexican food in Savska street – Zagreb

If you get a wish of eating Mexican food, you’ll have to travel to Zagreb, there is only Mexican restaurant in whole Croatia (there are few in Istria, not especially good).
The Mexican restaurant in Savska is original equipped and there is space for around 150 people. Service is very pleasant, friendly and surprising fast.
The Menu offers almost everything you could expect from good Mexican food, no matter if it is about food, wine that goes with it or natural choice of Mexican biers.

Following I recommend strongly:
Fajitas particularly with chicken
Very good tasting Guacamole
Brown pancakes


There are also other restaurants I would like to recommend, but that will be in some other post. The above mentioned statement is of course my subjective opinion, but I can say that all people I have recommended this restaurants were thrilled.
