Croatian Restaurants/where should this be

Skalinada in Volosko is wonderful! The owner has been a member of Slow Food for years, and his passion for local, in-season food is unmatched. The tavern features a wonderfully curated menu, which changes daily based on what's available at the market. The dishes are a successful blend of traditional and imaginative--always fresh and delicious. There is also an excellent selection of local (Istrian) and Croatian wines. The atmosphere is inviting--a grotto tucked in a staircase from the sea up to the main road. Stone walls, rustic colors, wonderful service. Stop for a meal or for a glass of wine, but do stop. It's a must for anyone who loves food prepared thoughtfully, with respect to the locals and to the seasons. Hvala Skalinada!
