A taste of Dalmatia
The climate of Dalmatia gives you the opportunity to taste all those indigenous flavours and provide your taste buds with an unforgettable experience and a better understanding of the new flavours. Gastronomy in Dalmatia is based on the traditional values that have always strived for simplicity and a healthy lifestyle. Dalmatian cuisine is based on seafood (fish, crustaceans, molluscs and cephalopods) and vegetables, but also various kinds of meat. Dalmatian olive oil is an essential ingredient of most dishes, especially traditional dishes on the coast. Some of the most famous dishes are grilled fish, dishes under the lid, Dalmatian smoked ham, fish soup with rice, risotto, fish stew, Pašticada (Dalmatian beef stew), flan, fritters, soparnik (Dalmatian swiss chard pie) and many others.
Some of these dishes you can try in the taverns that we can recommend, such as Emperors Palace in Mimice, The Flintstones in Svinisce and Farmhouse in Gata.
The cosy atmosphere of the tavern which is located in the old village of Mimice located about 600 meters from the Apartments Bosiljka is the perfect place for dinner. They offer several types of fish, smoked ham and cheese, and local white and red wine, brandy and fruit juices. Prices are very affordable with hospitable and friendly service by family Mimica.
An interesting and unusual restaurant in a small place called Svinišće, 17 km from the Apartments Bosiljka. You will be delighted by the charm, gastronomic delights and interior décor reminiscent of prehistoric times, reminiscent of the cartoon The Flintstones.
Authentic Dalmatian tavern located 17 km from the Apartments Bosiljka is a true gastronomic attraction. In addition to tasting local dishes made according to traditional recipes, you can buy authentic souvenirs of the area and enjoy the pleasant atmosphere. Our recommendation is that when in Gata with the exception of tavern Farmhouse you visit the museum Poljica, it offers a number of interesting exhibits that are reminiscent of the days of old Poljica autonomy.
