Authentic restaurant Konoba Bukaleta in Cres will transport you to a simpler time, full of rich, traditional flavors!
At the core of our cuisine is the high-quality lamb, raised in island Cres pastures, grazing on the native fields that adds a distinctive, natural flavor to our meat. Our signature dish, the Cres lamb, is the fusion of traditional cooking methods and culinary artistry. Expertly prepared in three distinct ways - in an old-fashioned oven, on a sizzling grill, or carefully breaded and fried to golden perfection - it's a culinary experience that captures the very essence of Cres Island!
Our menu also includes an array of other dishes, each embodying the traditional Cres gastronomy, which has been carefully preserved and handed down through generations.
Enjoy our traditional pasta called fuži. This handmade pasta goes perfectly with our homemade sauces, offering a delightful blend of textures and flavors.
Don't miss our homemade bread, fresh from the oven, best enjoyed with our local cheese and prosciutto. The cheese, produced from our livestock, pairs wonderfully with our prosciutto, cured using a time-tested method that brings out its full flavor!
Finish your meal with Olinto, our traditional dessert. It's a unique treat made from local ingredients and enriched with lamb fat for an extra depth of flavor.
