About us A passionately told story
Traditional meals made from local ingredients, presented in a modern way and paired with carefully chosen wines
The “Pet bunara” restaurant is guided by the Slow Food philosophy, which is gaining ever more followers around the world, and we approach the preparation of each meal accordingly. We change our menu with seasons, so all the foods we use are always fresh and, of course, organically grown. Our primary goal – complete satisfaction of our guests achieved through a well-rounded gastronomic experience.
The Slow Food movement was founded as the answer to the ever busier and more stressful way of life. At the very heart of this idea lies the enjoyment in food, as well as in life. Our philosophy of complete enjoyment in food, from the very beginning until it is finely served on your plate, underlies our entire gastronomic offer.
A word from the manager
“The organically grown foods we purchase exclusively from local farmers are the starting point of our creative culinary process. Superb delicacies require high quality ingredients. You only need to relax and let all your senses enjoy the gastronomic adventure we bring to your table.
Our famous desserts are also prepared with organic ingredients. Some of those desserts are gluten-free and we take a lot of pride in them.
The highlight of every meal surely is a glass of meticulously chosen wine. The “Pet bunara” restaurant brings you wines of highest quality, both Croatian and foreign. We are especially proud of the fine selection of superior wines from Zadar county. In addition to wines, we pride ourselves with the best choice of olive oils – home-made, varietal, or extra-virgin
If you visit us, we are confident you will find that we are one of the leading restaurants of the Zadar region. Welcome to the restaurant Pet bunara!”
Vladimir Babac, manager of the restaurant Pet Bunara
