Restaurant Zigante, located in Livade, is one of only 13 restaurants in Croatia proud to be a part of the JRE association. We are also the first Croatian restaurant specialized in the menu based on Istrian truffles, one of most valuable and precious ingredients in modern day gastronomy. Our chef Damir Modrušan will satisfy even the most demanding gourmands with creativity of his originally designed meals which contain truffles. Besides truffles, which grow in the untouched nature of nearby Motovun forest, our offer includes many other traditional Istrian specialties and delicacies. Restaurant offers carefully prepared menu during the whole year, as well as the quality wine made in Zigante winery.
