Must “go to” restoran on Cres! Best lamb from “krušna peč”. Delicious. With fine potatoes, some fresh tomatoes and great wine. We stop by for lunch every time on Cres!

...if yes, then certainly from Konoba Bukaleta! Best lamb dish ever - comes served in April/May. In Konoba Bukaleta. Very friendly service. Very pleasant premise. Near the town Cres, 1 km off the highway. Cres gem.
