Summer is always a popular season for vacations and, in many regions, this excitement slightly wears down by the end of September, but not here in Istria. Autumn in Istria is the time of year when vineyards come alive, olive groves are full of ripe fruits, and truffle hunters prepare their trained dogs to go and search for the most precious gourmet delicacy, so Istrian peninsula becomes an ideal destination for a relaxing and alluring holiday.
Restaurant Zigante also follows the trail of nature, mostly the trail of fresh white truffles. Restaurant interior is decorated in a special autumn-like fashion, the aromas of ripe fruits of nature are spreading around the kitchen, and the guests are served with creative specialties based on delicious and precious white truffles.
Apart from all the tasty dishes at restaurant Zigante, which are prepared by the renowned chef and truffle specialist Damir Modrušan, you can also visit Zigante Truffle Days, the biggest truffle fair which will certainly impress you with the amazing array of natural products.
