MICHELIN Guide Croatia 2022 : focus on Dalmatia (VIDEO)

The MICHELIN Guide Croatia 2022 was released last June. This destination, which seduces international travelers with its dreamy littoral, the impressive richness of its territory and its crystal-like sea, still charms the MICHELIN Guide’s inspectors with its gastronomy, packed with freshness and flavors.

Our inspectors were sensitive to the constant quality of the culinary experiences proposed by the restaurants, as their teams demonstrated regularity and consistency, showing how important this essential criterion is for being distinguished with a MICHELIN Star”, explained Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of the MICHELIN Guides. “Year by year, we also observe an increasing commitment by restaurants and professionals towards more sustainable gastronomy, with a focus on high-quality, locally sourced products, which make the Croatian culinary patrimony proud”, added Gwendal Poullennec.

Video highlights of three iconic Dalmatian restaurants, Šug, Zrno Soli and Konoba Mate. But what did the inspectors think ?

Šug : "Away from the busy tourist centre of Split, this informal, attractive and relaxing restaurant, where the young, friendly staff greet guests with courtesy and a smile, offers a good selection of traditional meat and fish dishes from Dalmatia. A small pleasant outdoor space in the inner courtyard and excellent value for money complete the picture".

Zrno Soli : "Enjoy views of boats and yachts, as well as of the sea and the centre of Split from the terrace of this restaurant located on the first floor of the ACI Marina. The classic, renowned cuisine focuses on fish and seafood, which diners can choose directly from the display cabinet. This “grain of salt” (the name of the restaurant) is an excellent choice for a delicious dining experience".

Konoba Mate : "It's well worth heading west to this family-run restaurant just over 11km from Korčula, where authentic cuisine full of flavour has been served to guests for over two decades. Much of the food is home made, including bread, the highly recommended pasta served with various sauces, goats' cheese, olive oil, home-grown vegetables and the traditional and more personalised desserts. Although the prices are reasonable, the grilled meat (priced per kilo) is a little more expensive".
