Excellent restaurant in the old town of Trogir : excellent octopus salad and lamb meet. The proposed dalmatian wines was also excellent. Nice service also. Better price to quality ratio than in the other Trogir restaurants.

Don't believe the Michelin guide. Vanjaka is by far the best.The location, close to the Cathedral, is great. The menu card offers a selected choice of meals, unlike Aka, the so called best in town for Michelin; The food is delicious with a sophisticated and personal touch. The service is outstanding and always with a smile. The best of all... More

After 12 days in Croatia tonight's dinner at Vanjaka, Trogir, was the best both in terms of quality and service.

Seafood soup was okay, not outstanding. I have had better in Trogir. Cuttlefish risotto had shrimp added. Was made to a good standard. Squid with chickpeas best part of meal. Too many smokers around.

We liked this place very much. Suggest making reservations as the place is small. We sat outside and enjoyed even when it began to rain. Thank goodness for their awnings! My husband had the braised beef and I had the Sea Bream and we thought they were both excellent. We would definitely recommend. Wish we had made more time for... More

Ate here on our first night in Trogir, pleasant surroundings & not cramped like some other places we'd seen whilst mooching around. Food was generally good, we had smoked swordfish carpaccio & mixed shells to start, both excellent but bread portion a little stingy on the shells & I had to wave goodbye sadly to the rest of the tasty...

We had three evening meals in Trogir, the first and last were both at Vanjaka. Enjoyed all the food (and wines by the glass) Cappacio smoked sword fish starter and the cuttlefish risotto were the stand outs. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere and the two male waiters who served us were totally professional and engaging. Vanjaka was recommended to... More

Had dinner with the family at Vanjaka and we were all very happy with the experience. Service was very attentive and absolutely no problems when we wanted some off the menu items for the kids. Had a good spread across the menu. Starters were great, especially the swordfish carpaccio and the tuna tartar. The traditional slow cooked beef stew was... More

Description
Restaurant Vanjaka is a respectable member of the Trogir gastronomic family. It is situated on the Radovan Square, in the east part of the town, right by the Saint Lawrence cathedral. Classy, sacral and aristocratic architectural surroundings have set the standards of this place high and it was a real challenge to meet them. Vanjaka is a contemporary home to a traditional dalmatian cousine and wine. Freshness, local origin and optimal nutritional value are the strict criteria by which we choose groceries to make the meals from our menu. Seasonal fruits ripped in nearby gardens, fish caught from small fishing boats of Trogir and meat from locally raised animals are combined professionally and with love. Meals made by recipes with a hundred year tradition in the Vanjaka restaurant can please the gourmand taste of a modern guest, and the wine card offers a variety of Croatian wines.
