Ivan Badurina

At his family’s restaurant, the wine selection is in hands of sommelier Ivan Badurina. Frankly, this is the perfect place to indulge in domestic wines while enjoying the homely ambiance that feels extremely friendly, warm, and inviting. Almost like you’re part of the family. Ivan has assembled a refined wine list, including some of Istria’s best wines. Think of Degrassi, Coronica, Matošević, Kozlović, Clai, and Prelac. In addition to these exciting local wines, the restaurant also offers an array of Italian wines.

Badi

Umag (village Lovrečica), Croatia
JRE Jeunes Restaurateurs

Lovrečica is a small fishing village in Croatia that is just as idyllic as it sounds. Here, the Badurina-Badi family opened the doors of their fish restaurant in 1986. Ever since, Badi has been a hotspot for local gourmets and food connoisseurs from far and wide. The chef prepares the most delicious seasonal and sea specialties: traditional dishes and local flavours with a creative twist. These dishes are wonderfully paired with the excellent wine selection by the sommelier, Ivan Badurina, who is the owner’s son. Badi is recognized as one of Croatia’s top 100 restaurants. In addition, its Mediterranean cuisine was honoured with 15.5 Gault Millau points, 2 forks, and 87/100 points from Falstaff. You can dine inside or on the outdoor terrace which is surrounded by olive trees. Don’t forget to visit the modern wine bar afterward.
