This is our favorite place to eat when we are in Cres. My parents are from the island and we always visit Bukaleta for the delicious lamb, fresh baked bread and pasta dishes. I have been coming to Cres for many years and I can easily say this is the best restaurant on the island. The lamb is served many... More

Lamb with pork flavour. Stuff reaction on our complaint was amateurish and non professional. Never again.

Ambient was nice and the food was good and it is easy to find not to far from the main road. Only a bit on the mass tourism side but still recommendable.

The place is only a couple of kms from Cres, in a small village. The food and the service are great, we would definitely recommend lamb (which is what the place is known for), as well as the local sweets for dessert.

Very good local food, definitly try the lamb. Good traditional desserts. Nice ambient. The only down side is the lack of the initiative of the staff, they should promote their specialties better and offer the desserts/digestive after the meal. We had to chase them for everything :)

We were lucky to find a table early on a Saturday night. Try to reserve a table in advance as it is quite popular. That being said, I was not impressed with my roasted lamb... it was bits and pieces of lamb with barely any meat. It was mostly bones and fat. For the price of it, I was not... More

The restaurant is very comfortable, with giant plates and special food! If you are on Cres, you must go there!

As you can see from the other reviews, this is simply the place where to eat lamb in Cres. They know their stuff, and in this case is about lamb. Aside of the usual comments I appreciated the thing that the menu wasn't particularly big aside of the lamb dishes, which in my opinion means that they know why people... More
