Michelin keeps on truckin’. Yesterday the restaurant arbitrators at the French tire company announced the 2019 starred restaurant selections for Croatia. The European country has just five Michelin-starred restaurants, with two restaurants winning stars for the first time in Michelin’s third edition of guide.

Noel in Zagreb is a new one-star restaurant this year. Here, chef Goran Kočiš offers four- and seven-course set menus starting at 430 HRK, or around $65 USD. Michelin calls it a “fashionable restaurant with soft lighting and trendy, internationally inspired furnishings.”

Draga di Lovrana, located in a hotel in Lovran on Croatia’s Kvarner Gulf, is also new to Michelin’s starred ranks. Its a la carte menu draws on local ingredients and traditional Mediterranean flavors with a “subtle Italian-French influence,” according to Michelin.

The three other starred-restaurants in Michelin’s guide to Croatia each retained one star from last year: Monte in Rovinj, 360˚ in Dubrovnik, and Pelegrini in Šibenik. The full Michelin guide to Croatia also includes four new lower-priced Bib Gourmand restaurants, and while there are just five starred-restaurants in the guide, it lists 63 restaurants total.
