Croa­tia’s bur­geon­ing wine scene is paired with a cui­sine that is unique to every re­gion and its culi­nary tra­di­tion. The cui­sine is unique to each re­gion of the coun­try, al­low­ing guests to have a taste of past and present in­flu­ences along with lo­cal sta­ples like the Zagorski Štrukli. A com­bi­na­tion of old-word cui­sine de­riv­ing from var­i­ous cul­tures that have in­flu­enced the re­gion with mod­ern cui­sine al­low for a won­der­ful foodie ex­pe­ri­ence. Us­ing lo­cally-sourced in­gre­di­ents and shar­ing sim­i­lar­ity with Ital­ian, Aus­trian, Hun­gar­ian, and Turk­ish cui­sine, Croa­t­ian cui­sine is heav­ily in­flu­enced by the sea and its lo­cal pro­duce.

Em­pha­siz­ing the coun­tries de­vel­op­ment of the lo­cal gas­tro­nom­i­cal scene, three Croa­t­ian restau­rants have at­tained a Miche­lin-star one-star rat­ing. Join­ing Monte in Rov­inj, which re­ceived one star in 2017, was: Pele­grini based in Šibenik, 360º sit­u­ated in Dubrovnik which re­ceived their star in 2018. Pele­grini abides the phi­los­o­phy of unique ex­pe­ri­ences through fine din­ing, which is achieved through a gas­tro­nomic menu and de­riv­ing in­flu­ences from French, Aus­tro-Hun­gar­ian, Ot­toman and Vene­tian cui­sine. Set within the great walls of Dubrovnik, 360º over­looks the port and has deep roots in Mediter­ranean cui­sine where chef Mar­ijo Curić puts twist on lo­cally sourced pro­duce from Croa­t­ian re­gions.
