Farm To Table
If you didn't what to look for, you'd never find little restaurant called Amfora in the bustle of Dolac, Zagreb's central market. At first sight, it definitely doesn't beckon you to enter. It looks like a worn-out joint from old socialist times. But stop and take a look at the board displaying their daily specials. Various kinds of fresh fish, mostly smaller and not so fancy kinds, grilled or fried, at a very reasonable price: picarels, anchovies, sardines, mackerels, whitings, hakes, surmullets... No wonder, the owner is also a fishmonger, and that's usually the best guarantee that you're eating the real stuff. Don't expect to be swept away by the interior or service. And don't mind the shabby bar downstairs. Just climb up to the claustrophobic and chaotic restaurant area upstairs and if you're lucky, you'll find a seat. Sit back and enjoy Amfora's simple and honest fish dishes, perfectly accompanied by rustic Plavina table wine. Escape the hubbub of Dolac that surrounds you and get transported to to a lazy and sunny Dalmatian afternoon.

Farm To Table
This family-run place, wrapped in the magic of forgotten times, is placed on a hilltop with a view on the hilltown Motovun. Opt to get there by taking the macadam road from Mirna Valley and we are sure you will feel a hint of medieval atmosphere in the air. In Montižel the atmosphere is very relaxed, so relaxed that it seems the owners managed to slow down the flow of time. In one corner there’s an open fireplace where some meat is being cooked under the iron bell and releasing captivating aromas. Everything they cook is prepared in a simple way with local produce: bread, pršut and cheese, maneštra with bobići, excellent pasta (fuži or pljukanci) with chicken goulash stew or shaved truffles, or sauerkraut with sausages and ombolo (cured tenderloin of pork)… Go for jugs of house Teran wine – rustic, almost sour, but full of juicy fruits and mouthwatering minerals. For dessert try their erba luiga aka verbena.
