A recent addition to Split restaurants scene, Uje Oil Bar Split quickly gained attention among the foodies in Split and Croatia. The restaurant opened in 2013. Stylish, bistro-style interior is warm and welcoming. For dining al fresco, there are also two side street terraces.
Dine in Croatia
Through our Dine in Croatia series, we try to give you an overview of dining scene in Croatia, as well as to recommend restaurants we find worth visiting while in Croatia. Like any other tourist country, there are many tourist traps when it comes to restaurants, many of them delivering mediocre food and bad customer service while overcharging for it. With our dining guide to Croatia, you would hopefully avoid these tourist pitfalls.
From regional to international cuisine, local eateries to fine dining restaurants, there are many awesome restaurants in Croatia. Croatian cuisine, just like the country itself, has been influenced by many neighboring countries: coastal region has typical Mediterranean diet based on olive oil, herbs, fresh fish, vegetables and pasta; eastern Croatian diet has been influence a lot by Hungarians, while north and Zagreb region shows lots of similarities with Austria.

Although we live in Porec, and honestly for many reasons we wouldn’t live anywhere else in Istria but here, we always admit that Porec doesn’t abound in good restaurants.

Located in Hodilje, a small coastal village just few kilometers north of Ston, on the Peljesac peninsula, Ficovic is a no-frills eatery by the sea, and with its own small […]
One street you must visit when you come to Zagreb is definitely Teslina street. A year ago this short street closed for traffic and from that moment all the wonderful tastes became instantly more appealing. Among a number of restaurants and coffee bars on offer in Teslina street, for our break, we chose Bistroteka.
This was our second time to eat at the bistro Mali Bar Zagreb. But before we tell you about our experience at this wonderful tapas bar, we need to tell you a bit about Zagreb courtyards (something that deserves an entire post, and we plan to write it soon).
Volosko, a small fishing village near Opatija, would be just like any other seaside village in Croatia – unknown and sleepy, with tourists only visiting it in July and August, if it wasn’t for its awesome restaurant scene. I personally don’t know of another town in Croatia, small or big, that has so many great […]
