With the seaside city position the restaurants serve mainly fresh seafood and fish, however there are plenty of Italian, Vegan and Bosnian restaurants that offer a wide range of delicious meals. However, the best places to eat at are of course local restaurants with meals including fresh sea fish, soft lamb meat or homemade Croatian cheese, served with warm bread and local wine. Certainly an irresistible combination!
