"TURAN" RESTAURANT

The "Turan" restaurant is carrying on the tradition of the once very popular "Dominko" tavern.
One can enjoy the island's specialties on the terrace of the "Turan" restaurant, under kiwifruit vines, tangerine and lemon trees. The rich gourmet offer will make it difficult to choose just one thing on the menu.
Figs wrapped with prosciutto slices and grilled on skewers, grilled young goat cheese, smoked octopus with scrambled eggs, dishes prepared with herbs under a baking bell, crab and scorpionfish brodetto, scampi with saffron and cognac, good old pašticada (a hearty meat sauce), and flambé fruit, meat or fish dishes account for only part of the rich gourmet offer.
