Plavi PodrumVolosko (Volosca), Croatia
On the waterfront of the idyllic Volosko cove, you’ll find the restaurant Plavi Podrum. Boasting over 110 years of tradition, the kitchen serves exciting Mediterranean and Istrian specialties such as scampi, truffles, and shellfish – all sourced from the Adriatic Sea. Nestled in a harbour, Plavi Podrum is the oldest restaurant on the Opatija Riviera. Nonetheless, it has been honoured multiple times for its fantastic contemporary European cuisine which showcases a beautiful blend of the traditional and the modern. It’s the only Croatian restaurant to be ranked twice on the prestigious S. Pellegrino 100 Best Restaurants in the World list (2008 and 2010) and has dominated the gourmet scene on a local level as well. In addition to its cuisine, the restaurant also offers exquisite wines, carefully selected by owner Daniela Kramarić, who is Croatia’s most renowned sommelier. If the weather allows it you can wine and dine on the outdoor terrace, a few meters from the sea.
