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.

“The best restaurant in Trogir”
Reviewed June 26, 2014

It is definitely the best restaurant in Trogrir. The food was excellent so was the service, This restaurant has the best menu in Trogir comparing to all other restaurants that have more less the same menu. The lady that owns the place that is also the main cook is very pleasant and helpful. We have had several very pleasant evenings there. Everything we ate was superb. We'll come again. Thank you Vanjaka

“Best dining experience in Trogir”
Reviewed June 25, 2014

Trogir on the Adriatic in Croatia is a very busy tourist destination. As a result, it has many restaurants. Some of them are tourist traps, especially on the waterfront. But I came across Restaurant Vanjaka between the main gate and the main square. It was easily my best dining experience in Trogir. The food is delicious - extremely well prepared and presented. Portions are also good. The wine list is excellent if you want to try good Croatian wines, many of them local. The service is also exemplary - courteous, friendly and informative - and the outdoor seating of the restaurant is very relaxing as it is off the main walking beat. And I could recommend the Pag island cheese as a starter - it is an excellent chance to taste this very famous and award winning cheese.

“A good recommendation from our hotel!”
Reviewed June 22, 2014

This is a delightful family-run restaurant in Trogir. We had the most delicious plate of fresh sea food there. We liked everything about it; the serving staff, the owners and the food and wine.

“Holiday dinner”
Reviewed June 13, 2014 via mobile

Again after reading opinions on Tripadvisor, we decided to eat there. We ate fish soup- rather ok, but very Little flavoured, very mild. After- mixed salad and lamb. There was very big "shock", wiem I ordered salad without oil inside, the waitress dziś, that they do not put olive and aceto on the table!!! Of course for Small portion of olive oil, 2 spoons od olive tapenade and seriously 4 pieces of bread, you have to psy 35 kuna... It was all strange. Lamb was ok, but nothing special. We have mixed feelings...
