It is good for plant-lovers
Jun 2021 • Couples
We decided to visit the Klis Fortress in the middle of June and that was a pleasant surprise at the entrance we also got a free ticket into another place: Stella Croatica. While it was in the near, we visited it also. That is true it is rather a shop than a botanical garden, but in this business model (Klis + Stella for one ticket) it is very good. We got a guided tour (more surprise🥰) and also we could taste and try almost every goods there and then decide to buy or not to buy 😆. I have never thought before I will find an oil tasty. The shop is not cheap but I think it is natural in a manufacture. They have 2+1offers. The garden is wonderful with several types of flowers, herbs and spices, but i think it is not big, this is why I say it is rather a shop than a botanical garden. We didn't try the restaurant. Overall it is worth it to go when you are a plant-lover. We had one of our best times here during our holiday in Croatia. Thank you!

Dear A6981GJmariannas, Thank you for posting such a nice review following the recent visit to Stella Croatica after visiting Klis fortress. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed the guided tour and the tasting of our handmade delicacies. Only regret is that you obviously did not visit the Tavern inside an authentic Dalmatian village, which is surrounded by numerous indigenous plants and flowers. When you come back next year, we will show you the rest of the botanical collection! Kind regards, Stella Team

Super cool place and delicious food
Sep 2020 • Couples
It’s a great place to visit. The tour it’s not too long which was great for me. The store it’s really nice to try some regional products (likes oil olives, strawberry honey, sweets and etc). But the restaurant and food... super delicious! Prices are really good. For the desk with cheese, jam, breads, nuts, fruits, olive oil, soup, dinner, dessert, wine and water we paid similar price like you pay in the city just for a dinner and small glass of wine. 100% recommend! And the service super nice and great! Thank you guys.

Hidden Gem - Perfect 1-2 hour excursion with yummy food.
Sep 2020 • Friends
Absolutely lovely experience! The 20 minute tour was informative and yummy (lots of taste testing along the way). The guide was very informative and funny. Their garden has over 500 unique plants, which was a joy to walk around. Their lemon and truffle olive oils are fantastic. We ended our tour at their restaurant, which served a perfectly limited menu with ingredients from their garden. This isn’t something that I’d normally visit on vacation but I’m sure glad I did!

Amazing little tour
Aug 2020 • Couples
Beautiful tour around the Stella Croatia grounds. Products were all amazing, we were sad to only be able to take a few bits home in our hand luggage. Amazing food at their restaurant with great service.

Dear Rebekahhodkinson1, It is a delight to find out you enjoyed the tour of the property, ending with tasting of numerous traditional delicacies in our concept store and lunch in our traditional tavern. It is always sad when guests do not have enough space in their luggage to take home beautiful souvenirs, but that is why we introduced shipping option to your home address. Do contact us for all additional questions. Kind regards, Stella Croatica Team

Stella Croatica @ A Delightful Discovery
Sep 2019 • Couples
On our way to Split(a town on Croatia's Dalmatian Coast), we stopped at Stella Croatica @ A Delightful Discovery. The place is not touristic, but rustic and authentic. We had our dinner there. Simply loved the delicious pumpkin soup served with (premium olive oil, sea salt and bread). The hostess(very warm and friendly) showed us around the miniature garden(showcasing the products they grow). The staff was very professional, warm and welcoming. We were under no pressure to buy anything. Guess what ! we end up buying a lot of their products. Simply enjoyed our evening at this fantastic and amazing place ! Highly recommended for a visit.

Too lovely
Sep 2019 • Couples
What a wonderful and delicious place! I originally thought it was going to be inauthentic and touristy - but instead it was touristy in best possible way. We sampled so many local treats and everyone was so kind!!! No pressure to buy anything and fresh, generous samples. We even had lunch there, and it was atmosphericaly rustic. We ran out of money to tip the waiter, which was my only regret. Highly recommended.

Incredible experience!
Jul 2019 • Solo
I went here on my own, and it is not the easiest location to get to without a car, but 100% worth it if you have the time. I ended up with a private tour with a lovely woman who showed me the types of products they grow and produce here. Then, I ate lunch at the restaurant which was quite possibly the best meal I had the entire time I was in Croatia! Everyone who worked there was so kind and welcoming and were so helpful when it came to helping me get back to Split since I didn't have a car. If you have the opportunity to experience this place, do it. You will not regret it.
