23rd Restaurant Week in Croatia Delights Foodies from October 15 to 24

October 14, 2021 - The 23rd Restaurant Week in Croatia returns on Friday, October. 15, where participating restaurants around the country offer 3-course menus for promotional prices! 

Restaurant Week returns to Croatia for its 23rd edition on October 15, 2021. The special event is a chance for foodies around the country to enjoy three-course menus at various participating restaurants for 100/125 kuna, during both lunch dinner. The 23rd edition of this event will be held from October 15 to 24. 

So, what is Restaurant Week anyway?

Restaurant Week is the idea of Željka Marjanović and Ozren Drobnjak, who wanted to find a way to promote Croatia’s culinary scene in cooperation with its catering establishments. Restaurants participating in the campaign meet the needs of guests through a special promotional offer. The concept is modeled on capital cities around the world and is adapted to the Croatian market. During the event, participating restaurants offer various three-course menus at promotional prices. It is held twice a year, usually in late February and late September, but in this case, in October.

For example, the Croatian capital has 17 participating restaurants this time around (though they had about 30 last October), while Split welcomes the same number of participating restaurants this year. 

Split Riva institution Brasserie on 7 is a loyal Restaurant Week member and won't miss out this autumn, either. Visitors can enjoy a 3-course menu of their choice, including: 


Beef Carpaccio - sliced ribeye, lentils, truffles & parmesan

Beetroot and cherry salad - roasted beetroot, red onion, radish, ricotta mousse, cherry & pistachio vinaigrette

Sweet and ginger soup - sour cream with vanilla and pepper & walnuts
