Golden Shell Slow Food

Golden Shell Slow Food The 'Golden Shell' is a small, picturesque slow food restaurant situated in the centre of Hvar, less than 20m from the town piazza.

The 'Golden Shell' is a small, picturesque slow food restaurant situated in the centre of Hvar, less than 20m from the town piazza. It is located on the ground floor of a 13th century house, which was later joined with the foundations of the city wall. It once belonged to the Hektorović family and is believed to be the birthplace of renowned Rennaisance poet Petar Hektorović (1487-1572), who lived and worked here for the grater part of his creative life. This places The Golden Shell, physically and metaphorically, at the root of Croatian and Mediterranean history. However, it is the present-day philosophy and offer of this intriguing restaurant that makes it special. Seating is available for 30 guests, with each guest guaranteed an intimate atmosphere and an individual approach to choosing their meal and the way it is prepared. Thanks to an open-plan kitchen, strategically placed so it is visible from every corner of the restaurant itself, guests are able to watch as each phase of their meal is prepared. It was Ivan Buzolić, a demanding gourmand with extensive knowledge of coooking in ancient times, who found this very location to be the perfect inspiration. This is where he creates intriguing dishes, a perfect blend of tradition and modern gastronomic trends seen in the slow food movement. Chef Ivo will attempt to surprise and delight you with an offer of exotic and unusual dishes with a combination of tastes which evoke the atmosphere of life in the Mediterranean and the traditions involved in the preparation of food. You will rarely have to choose your meal alone. Before each decision the chef or one of his staff will carefully inform you and make suggestions for your next course based on your tastes, comments and suggestions. Once this is done, relax and leave the rest to the chef - you are guaranteed a unique adventure of taste, smell and colour during several courses which you can enjoy for hours at a time. Capacity: -optimal, 25 persons -maximum 35 persons

Payment Options:   Cash

Price Range: $$

Culinary Team: Ivan Buzolić

Bigmamma's Kitchen

In life of a woman who's eternal dreamer, there comes a time when some of those dreams come to reality in the most unexpected ways...
I worked my way into opening a studio kitchen in Croatia's capital this fall, but destiny decided to shift my sails towards another beautiful European island, London to be precise.
There were questions, doubts and sleepless nights, but I decided it's now ot never. How else can you know are you ready or not if you don't try?
So in a couple of weeks, I'll be moving my knives, olive oil and aromatic herbs (in)to a new pop up restaurant featuring Dalmatia and cuisine which I carry in my blood, straight from my island Hvar.

Should you happen to be there through October, don't hesitate to stop by and say hello. We'll have wine too ;)
