Istria is special, Umag even more so
Yes, all of Istria is famous for its gourmet food, and it will be easy for you to find delicious, homemade food wherever you go. However, Umag and northwestern Istria stand out. Nowhere else will you find such a great concentration of world-class konobas and restaurants. Most of Istria’s award-winning winemakers and olive oil producers are from this very region. Umag is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, fields of tomatoes, orchards... The people here live for food, making for products and a gourmet scene of the highest standards.
A land of olive oil producers and winemakers
Umag is a fishing town, first and foremost, and no visit is complete without trying the seasonal fish and shellfish specialties. Also, Umag and its hinterland are unsurpassed in the production of wine and olive oil, and it also features an enviable number of great restaurants, konobas and family farm restaurants that locals also enjoy. You likely won’t be able to visit them all, so ask our staff to recommend a place that best suits your tastes and desires: where are the best meat specialties? Where to try real truffles? Which fish restaurant is considered the best? Where can you find craft beer or a glass of great Teran wine?
Our chefs are here to treat you as well – Plava Laguna’s à la carte restaurants prepare classical local cuisine as well as international dishes you can’t go wrong with.
