The most heralded restaurant on the island was as good as advertised. They are known for lamb, which they prepare in 3 different ways: 1) grilled - excellent, 2) "peka" - always good and juicy, and 3) fried, which was... interesting and the kids loved...More

During our weekend getaway, we had dinner here. Looking for some famous local lamb- we found the perfect place. Everything from lamb soup, selection of goat and sheep cheese, oven baked lamb and selection of local desserts was perfectly cooked and very very delicous! Big...More

It's hard to reach this place on the Cres island, but it's worth a visit. Located in Loznati, a faraway, isolated village on the island, reachable by car (or if you have stamina on a bike), this restaurant offers exceptional food at really good prices....More
