Cuisine of Pag Island for gourmets. Places for dinner - best restaurants

You can’t fully plunge yourself into the culture of a foreign country without trying its national cuisine. Croatia is famous for its delicious food. There are two kinds of catering establishments on Pag. You can eat in a restaurant or visit a konoba which is a Croatian local tavern. There is no difference between dishes in a konoba and a restaurant, the places just have different interiors. Konoba is furnished in a country style. The main dishes are served in a konoba and in a restaurant only at dinner time. But dinner is usually a late meal in Croatia. However, you can come here at noon and have marena which is a late breakfast. You will get a portion of meat or fish but it is smaller than you can get on dinner and it costs less.

Croats prefer to eat low-fat desserts. Local cakes are like puddings and you won't gain weight.

You can easily find coffee and juice on the island. The most popular Croatian hard drinks are local wines, travarica (loza with herbs), šljivovica (plums) and vinjak.
