TZ Punat


The islanders do not need lessons in healthy food, which becomes clear when you glance at a menu. Fish, sheep cheese, lamb, asparagus and olive oil - need we say more? Healthy food has been part of the traditional lifestyle in the area, available to you as well. Seafood restaurants, a la carte restaurants, inns, taverns, grill patios, pizzerias and small bistros, almost each of them situated by the sea or providing a view of the bay, offer a diverse choice of food.

The islanders’ food relies on sea and seafood. Fish and seafood specialties are prepared in a variety of ways: boiled, roasted, brodetto-style, grilled or in salads… always spiced with original extra-quality virgin olive oil of Punat, which has made Punat a renowned olive-growing center. Handmade pasta Šurlice is a local specialty, normally prepared for formal occasions such as weddings. If you prefer meat, we recommend the lamb and sheep cheese from Stara Baška. Of course, all these delicacies should be accompanied with the popular quality local wine.
