The restaurants 360° (Dubrovnik), Draga di Lovrana (Lovran), Monte (Rovinj), Noel (Zagreb) and Peligrini (Sibenik) all retain their stars this year, a culinary performance that demonstrates the consistency of each of the chefs who share a unique creative cuisine with their guests.

The MICHELIN Guide Croatia 2020 has two new restaurants that have been awarded one star. The LD Terrace restaurant in Korcula, run by Chef Marko GAJSKI, is renowned for its refined gastronomic cuisine in which local produce and flavours from across the world bring a subtle balance to the dishes. Combining delicious preparation and innovation, the use of local Croatian produce is the strong point of Chef Matijas BREGES at Boškinac (Novalja) - his creativity brings out the full intensity of the flavours.

To mark the publication of the 2020 Guide, Gwendal Poullennec, International Director of MICHELIN Guides, says: "This year’s selection reflects the positive trends on the Croatian food scene, all around the country. With a total of 70 restaurants in the Guide, Croatian cuisine is evolving and improving, especially by concentrating the energies of the chefs into selecting the best meat and vegetables from the local territories and the freshest fish from small-scale fishing.”

The new MICHELIN Guide Croatia 2020 features two additional Bib Gourmand restaurants. Konoba Škoj (Šolta Island) offers excellent value for money while Mediterranean and local influences ensure a dynamic cuisine with warm flavours. Perched on the hills in the middle of their vineyards, Zlatne Gorice restaurant in Varaždin Breg delivers the perfect harmony of reinvented traditional dishes and local wines, all in a very elegant atmosphere.

Originally introduced in 1997, the Bib Gourmand distinction highlights establishments that offer a quality two-course menu with a glass of wine or dessert for €35/HRK 260. In addition to the selection of starred restaurants, the MICHELIN Guide's inspectors are keen to find top-quality venues that are more widely accessible to food lovers, whatever their budget or preferences.
