MICHELIN Guide Croatia 2022 : focus on Zagreb (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 two iconic Zagreb restaurants, Nav and Tač, in two completely different styles. But what did the inspectors think ?

Nav : “You cross an inner courtyard to access this restaurant’s partially hidden entrance, then head to the first floor, where the culinary delights of Tvrtko Šakota await. This chef creates original Croatian cuisine with a focus on the country’s top-quality ingredients, with dishes presented on a long surprise tasting menu. Prior booking is recommended, as there are very few tables”.

Tač : “Despite its location in a residential district outside the city centre, it’s worth heading off the beaten track to eat in this restaurant with its welcoming dining rooms and attractive summer terrace. Meat and fish dishes feature on the menu – we particularly enjoyed the fish, which is of a very high quality and prepared in simple, traditional recipes”.
