One of the world’s most respectable gastronomy authorities, famous Michelin guide, has recently issued a second special edition of the guide for the Istrian region with 14 restaurant recommendations and one Michelin star.
Restaurant Zigante was also included in the selected company of 14 finest restaurants in Istria which means that our experienced and well-known chef Damir Modrušan, creative designer of our menu, once again managed to impress with his unique delicacies and specialties based on fresh seasonal ingredients, most of all truffles. Apart from delicious meals, Zigante has also found its place in the new part of this special guide – a list of local olive oil producers which placed Istria at the very top when it comes to the best olive oil destinations in the world.
The rating procedure is simple. Michelin uses anonymous inspectors who visit the restaurant without prior announcement and rates the quality of the dishes according to their strict rules. This recommendation means that our restaurant Zigante has, same as last time, met the highest standards of this renowned gastro guide.
This special edition is not only a proof of our hard work, but also a great award to the Istrian gastronomy in general. We are proud that Istria has been recognized as a unique gourmet destination and we are pleased to be a part of the big Michelin family.
