Konoba Opat

L'avis de Gault&Millau

If you sail on the Kornati islands, be sure to go to Konoba Opat, on the island of Kornat. And don’t miss to book a berth, as a lot of boats go to the same destination. There are always some large yachts moored at their pier. In addition to the fairytale environment of sun, rocks and sea, the tavern attracts the boaters because of the gorgeous food they offer. You will be greeted by the owner and chef Ante Božikov, one of the most famous chefs of the area, who will present the daily catch. There you will always find fresh fish, lobsters, scampi, mussels and other seafood. The main spices are the wild aromatic plants that grow on the Kornati rocks. The chef knows the sea very well because he went fishing with his father from an early age. Twenty years ago, he decided to open a tavern for seafood lovers in the wilderness of a desert island. Today, his tavern is a synonym of top-notch food. Indulge in his recommendations when it comes to food choices. Be sure to taste the raw fish, in the form of carpaccio or tartare. You will be delighted by the freshness of the fish that had been swimming in the sea a few hours earlier. Eager for a little luxury on a plate this time we opted for tagliatelle with lobster. Fresh pasta, delicious homemade tomato salsa with large pieces of lobster tail. A finger- licking dish. There are not many restaurants where you can find top quality fish like at Opat. In addition to raw fish, they prepare a delicious brodetto, a fish broth, and once again you will enjoy the excellence of the ingredients. At the end of the meal they offer some fine desserts. You will leave with the only desire to return as soon as possible. Because of this unique experience they got this year the third Gault&Millau toque.
