My wife and I were being shown the sights of Primošten by our hostess guides Biljana Lambasa and Tina Vickov, which brought us to Šarićevi Dvori, the agri-tourism highlight of our day. We visited in the off season, so our host, Zoran Sarić paid us extra attention. We learned of his life as a player on a world champion water polo team, and his taking over the family farm and home of his ancestors, the 350 year old site that is now open to tourists.

From the moment we arrived and received the tour and explanation of the site we were made to feel welcome and comfortable. In classic Croatian tradition, the bottle of rakija and glasses appeared and we all drank to health and happiness. Zoran had been notified ahead of time that there was one vegetarian among us, and his wife had prepared a delicious lentil and bean soup.

We enjoyed artisan bread cooked the traditional way in a peka, a metal pot that is buried in embers of a wood fire. There is much to be said for the traditional ways. The bread, which had wonderful texture and flavor quickly disappeared, and of course, another basket of bread appeared. The traditional appetizers of olives, farm cheese and prosciutto were wonderful. Fortunately, I have learned not to fill up on the first course in Croatia because there is always more coming. We had the octopus and vegetables (also cooked in a peka). The octopus was so tender that I did not need a knife to cut it into bite sized pieces.

We had the luxury of time and so we stayed to watch the sun go down, which comes fairly early in mid-November. Our visit was more than a great meal. It was a great experience. Even if you do not go to Šarićevi Dvori to eat, you owe it to yourself to visit. If you can stay to eat you will not be disappointed.

Taste of food is supurb and view is even better. Dinning at the balcony we enjoyed in sunset over Adriatic. Such a colorful event on the sky. Wine "Babic" is so great. It's some kind of local growing grapes which grows only in the very narrow Primosten area, and it's unique. All food, olives and wine was from owners field. Owner and his family work at restaurant and home atmosphere with amusing owner is everywhere. He is some kind of entertainer as well. Great food, affordable prices and lot of fun .For those who loves old look I have to say that place look like was literally stoned in 18th century :-D House made from stones, fireplace, cooking area...everything, like trip to the past. But for me food is what this make even better. Recommended to all hedonists.

Well, here you can really get a feeling how peasants and fisherman lived in Dalmatia in early 20th century. The owners made effort to preserve houses probably made during 19th century. I was especially impressed with their roofs made of flat stones. A lot of items from that time can be seen on walls. In the middle of the restaurant there is a open fireplace where most of the meals are made so you can watch it how they are prepared.
Our lunch started with excellent cheese made of sheep milk with homemade bred, than
minestrone made of some sort of bean, and for main meal
octopus with potatoes and some vegetables baked on ember,
and for drink of course local wine
Everything was very tasteful, we enjoyed it very much. After that we went to their stable, where they keep only donkey left in the village. In old times those animals where main work force, because they can carry a lot of load, but this one is lucky, his only duty is to take pictures with tourists. :-)

I discovered that restaurant one year ago and since then have been 5 times there. It's hidden high in mountains, that's why it is the best place for watching sunset and to spend a beutiful evening with your friends having nice meal.
The owner of that restaurant is a local family, which has it 300 years already! You can enter to the ancient kitchen to look, how it was there. The menu is from this time. For example you can try an octopuses ragou. All ingridients are planted by the family on their garden, including vine and bread (except for octopuses and meat, of course:). Hearing for silent local music (words of some songs are written by the owner), you'll be enjoying with an exellent food: peka, salads, etc.
That's not a famous place for tourists, that's why hear you can enjoy of calmness. However it's the favorite place for foreigners, as Gorbachyov, for example.
