Gourmet Pleasures

Discover the most enticing gourmet destinations on the Adriatic!

Taste exquisite Mediterranean and international dishes prepared with loving care, pair them with a glass of local wine, and add a few drops of superb olive oil for an unforgettable gourmet experience at Aminess.

Friendly to local tastes

The Mediterranean, including the Adriatic coast, is deeply imbued with various cultural identities and influences reflected in the flavours of our cuisine. Menus change with the seasons to include fresh ingredients such as squid, scallops, sole, asparagus and island lamb, accompanied by top wines and extra virgin olive oils, such as our own award-winning Vergal olive oil. In the spirit of the best Croatian tradition, we therefore invite you to join us for a meal at Aminess Hotels & Resorts.

Most of our bars are located right on the seaside, creating a magnificent backdrop for a romantic evening or a great night out with friends. Sip a glass of local wine while the sun kisses the horizon on the islands of Krk or Korčula or get into the rhythm of salsa or DJ music at Punto Mare Fun Centre in Novigrad. Whichever destination you choose, we invite you to Aminess bars to lift a glass to friendship.

Wine tasting

Listen to the interesting wine stories told by owners of local wineries in person! Set off on any of the countless wine roads in Istria, Dalmatia and on the island of Krk to discover numerous wine cellars scattered across the coast and the picturesque hills of the inland.

Make sure to taste:

  • Malvasia, Teran and Muscat in Istria
  • Plavac mali, Dingač and Postup on Pelješac
  • Pošip, Grk, Rukatac, Plavac and Prošek on Korčula
  • Žlahtina and Žlahtina sparkling wine from the sea on Krk

Extra virgin olive oil - Vergal

According to the Flos Olei global guide, Istria has been the best olive growing region in the world for many years in a row. Furthermore, due to the high content of phenolic compounds, Croatian olive oils have also been proclaimed the healthiest in the Mediterranean.

This is why Aminess uses its own Vergal extra virgin olive oil, produced in-house relying on more than a thousand years of olive-growing tradition in Istria.
