Food and drink
Croatian food comes from a melting pot of different cultures and is influenced heavily by its European neighbours. One dish you’ll see again and again on restaurant menus is Peka, meat and vegetables slow cooked in an earthenware pot over the embers of a fire until meltingly tender. The country has a long coastline and fish and seafood is very popular, octopus and simply grilled white fish being local favourites. Small plates of pasta or risotto are standard starters in most restaurants and make good kid friendly options for a restaurant meal. You’ll also find at least one pizza restaurant in most towns.
The local village of Starigrad has good family friendly options for a night out, with pizzerias, relaxed snack bars and restaurants serving meat and fish simply prepared over a charcoal grill. The Croatians tend to speak very good English, are very hospitable and love children, so you’ll be made to feel very welcome. High chairs may not always be available, so if you can, bring a baby booster seat, you’ll also find that baby changing facilities are few and far between.
