Located in a quiet pocket called Anica Bay in Croatia’s Kornati National Park is Konoba Levrnaka on Island Levrnaka. Surrounded by natural and unspoiled beauty, the restaurant is also a five minute walk from the island’s only sandy beach called “Lojena.” Each year the sea side restaurant lures in countless yachts, many of whom have booked a table in advance. Rumour has it that during peak season, you must book a table a month prior your visit, that is how busy they are...

Who is this tiny little town in Croatia’s Istrian region liking all my Tweets? I remember the morning I typed “Žminj” into Google Maps and thought to myself, “When would I ever visit Žminj? It’s in the sticks!” Well, the invite came and my presumptions couldn’t be more wrong.
Casa Matiki is an idyllic bed and breakfast with great appeal for anyone seeking a semi-secluded location in Croatia’s Istrian region, only 1km away from Zminj town centre. Set on over 5 hectares of land, Casa Matiki’s owner Sonja Glavic-Krivicic is a woman well into her retirement years with no plans of retiring, and who could blame her? This is clearly a woman who has found her forte.
Ron Gastrobar is not your typical Michelin Star restaurant, it is not a fine dining experience compared to the likes of Alain Ducasse or Steirereck at Stadtpark. It's the polar opposite: A calm, contemporary setting with fine modern interior and an open kitchen. It screams more high end steakhouse than fine dining. It really is the most unconventional Michelin Star restaurant I've ever been to, one filled with unexpected surprises.
Pop’s Place is located smack bang in the middle of Ljubljana’s soul, overlooking the Ljubljanica River with glimpses of Ljubljana Castle. Nothing less than a picturesque dining experience filled with plenty of people watching on Ljubljana's main artery, Cankarjevo Nabrežje. Pop's Place is a family owned and run GastroPub serving gourmet burgers and craft beer. The same family own well-known 'As Aperitivo Restaurant' serving local Slovenian cuisine located only moments away from Pop's Place.
