Šibenik, Croatia

Croatia and Venice squabbled over seaside Sibenik for centuries and it even went through a period under French rule, so it makes sense that its food scene reflects this varied past. Chef Rudolf Štefan’s menu of 13 dishes (of which diners are encouraged to pick four) also explores these, as well as the Turkish and Austro-Hungarian influences that collectively form Dalmatian cuisine. Sourcing ingredients such as sea snails, scallops, veal and beef directly from small, local producers and treating them with respect is central to the restaurant’s philosophy. Warm, knowledgeable service is also a focus – it must be confessed, not always the case in Croatian restaurants – and the setting in a 14th-century palazzo opposite St. James Cathedral is very memorable. Complete with four wells and a lots of plants, the spacious terrace is lovely but not all tables have sea views, so be sure to request one that does when booking.
