Tradition of taste

Today, Mediterranean cuisine is generally regarded as one of the healthiest in the world due to the type and quality of the food and the ways they are prepared. The cuisine of Novalja, which is part of this Mediterranean cuisine, will provide a true gastronomic experience.

When you visit Novalja, you should not miss visiting one of the many restaurants that we have. From the menus of these tastefully decorated restaurants, we first and foremost recommend one of the famous local specialties such as cheese, lamb, needle macaroni or curd strudel. You'll also feel the full magic of the Mediterranean cuisine if you opt for seafood.

Among the various fish and seafood dishes, we recommend the refreshing fish soup, the Novalja brodit (fish stew), various kinds of salad, risotto and the boiled or grilled fish. 

If you encounter the traditional local desserts – hrostules and frits – try them. Their special flavours have ensured that they keep their place amidst the influx of various modern sweets and they remain one of the trademarks of Novalja cuisine. A glass of local wine to finish will make for a complete delight.

After you've tried the best that the Novalja cuisine has to offer, take some homemade foods back with you and prepare a true Novalja dinner for your friends and share your unique dining experience! 

This is why we've prepared two simple recipes for you so you can remember the taste and smell of our authentic cuisine for a long time!
