Conca D'oro

L'avis de Gault&Millau

Conca d’oro (Golden Seashell in Italian) is located in a narrow picturesque alley in the very center of the city of Rijeka. It will delight you at first glance with its charming decoration. In every corner of the restaurant you will find something interesting - short lines of city history or some reading material. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The wine list is based on local winemakers, mostly from the Istrian area, the offer of other drinks is standard. We started our lunch with beef tartare that had a surprise - it was served on a large, baked bone so, instead of butter, we could use the bone marrow as a spread on the great homemade bread. This added to the dish some extra flavours and we were really impressed. At our opinion the tartare would be flawless with a little more spices. Next we tried the stuffed calamari (squid) in a black brodetto (a broth with pieces of fish with squid black ink) and the chicken žgvacet (a typical chicken stew from Istria). The calamari were very good, soft and juicy, the brodetto tasty and visually interesting because of the black ink. The dish was served with a great grilled polenta. The chicken stew was also very good, served with homemade gnocchi. We finished our meal with a brownie and a dark chocolate ice cream, with a little red peppercorns and coconut milk. A creative and delicious dessert. Conca d’oro is a restaurant full of character with moderate prices and beautifully presented dishes that are definitely worth a visit if you are nearby.
