Restaurant Olivia

Enjoy the authentic Dalmatian cuisine – the regional gastronomic tradition is based greatly on fish, vegetables, olive oil, with Venetian influences dating from the middle ages. The basic characteristic of the local cuisine is the use of olive oil and a simple way of preparing the food (grilled, cooked, and baked under the bell). Even the herbs and spices used are a down-to-earth, straightforward set: parsley, garlic, onions and laurel. From these simple ingredients the Dalmatian cuisine skilfully conjures all kinds of culinary indulgence, the most famous ones being grilled fish, octopus baked under the bell (“peka”), pašticada (marinated beef) and of course, pršut (air dried ham) and sheep milk cheese.

Directly onsite the Restaurant Olivia offers authentic and fresh dishes, prepared for you by our highly qualified chef. Swordfish or tuna prosciutto on a bed of wild mixed herbs (“mišancija”), crab ravioli in sparkling wine mousse and smoked duck breast with truffles are only a few of the delicious dishes we prepare, with the sea only a few steps away from your table.

But no matter what your favourite dish will be, don’t skip the wine – the region is famous for its high quality red wines Plavina, Lasina and Babic, coming from the vineyards in the Šibenik / Primošten region. An image of the Primošten vineyards is located in the permanent exhibition of the United Nations headquarters in New York as a reminder of the painstaking multi-century work and the constant struggle with the Dalmatian stone. For white wine lovers there are Debit and Maraština, pressed from autochthonous varieties.
