By Saron Lease, 18th February 2019
According to the Michelin Guide, the Pelegrini Restaurant in Sibenik on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia, has been awarded a Michelin star. It says this is for "Using top quality ingredients, dishes with distinct flavours are carefully prepared to a consistently high standard and with an excellent wine list." Situated opposite the UNESCO world heritage site of the beautiful cathedral of St James, this restaurant has a few small tables arranged outside on the steps in summer and is named after the fine old building in which it is housed. The Guide notes that the decor here is a light, elegant mix of old and new and the service excellent. "Rudi" Stefan, the self-taught owner-chef, puts plenty of energy into expressing the best of himself and the region, creating modern meat and fish dishes from top-quality ingredients. The tasting menu allows you to create your own dining experience by choosing the exact number of courses you require and the individual dishes which tempt you.
