We visited whilst sailing on an overnight stop. We were a little unsure about going after reading mixed reviews but had our minds changed. The service and friendliness was impeccable - met as we approached in our dingy, shown the wine room to look at...wines. Amazing fresh tuna. The location and views were fabulous. Would recommend.More

Every year I spend a few days in Core and all I can say is that each felt like being in paradise. Fishermens are arriving every two or three days. Some crabs are being held in submerged cages. It cannot be more fresh than that....Chef really knows his business, and the wine cellar is out of this world: they have over 150 different wines from Croatia and the world. I see some reviews complaining about somewhat higher prices. Yes, this place is a bit more expensive than land-based restaurants, but it is placed in a National park, and they have expensive delivery of goods. Also, they have to produce their own water from sea, and their own electricity from generators, and some solar. There is no way they can keep low prices. The experience and the quality is well worth it. I highly recommend experiencing this place.More

Visited Core on our boat tour with Ante (also first class) and visited Core on one of the Kormati islands in Croatia. On the water tables and couches with an unbelievable view. Started with the local like mojito. Saw boats dropping off fresh caught fish,...clams and mussels. Asked Core if we could have some clams and they made them in a big platter with olive oil, garlic, white wine and parsley. Clams were awesome and the fresh bread to dip into the platter extremely tasty. House white wine perfect to finish off our late afternoon stop. If on a boat in the Adriatic a must stop or schedule with your captain if you rent a boat make Core a must stop. Staff was so kind I was able to buy a staff tee shirt.More

We visited the Core restaurant this June for a family lunch. As we were delighted with the offer, the beautiful view, nice entrance to the crystal clear sea and the separate part with deckchairs for relaxation, we decided to stay for dinner. It was a...great experience because in the night the restaurant is just magical. The whole bay is surrounded by underwater lighting and relaxing lounge music. The wine offer is excellent and we were especially impressed by creative and super tasty appetizers, grilled fish and homemade olive oil. Prices are higher compared to mainland restaurants, which is completely justified given that the restaurant is located on a island that is beyond civilization.More
