The restaurant is famous for its food, mostly based on local specialty - the lamb, which is by far the best in the country. We were part of the very large group (almost two hundred people) and they managed to serve everyone with great care and high efficiency. The food was excellent and the vine was equally good. I have... More

Bukaleta is a hidden gem. Local restaurant is hidden in a small village Loznati, not far from the city Cres on the island of Cres. Very narrow road leads to the village and good choice for your dinner. Ou will need reservation during the summer season. N old house, enlarged covered garden and open garden are not some special architecture.... More

What more is there to say: just go and enjoy a delicieus meal. Maybe you will be served by the waiter with the beautifull dark voice, but there are all friendly. You are coming for the food and this is excellent.

We came to this restaurant thanks to recommendation of a person living in Fazana when spending a week of holiday in Istria. The food was excellent and the bill was surprisingly low. Red house wine perfect. We had lamb for adults and mix grill meat for kids. Children played with local animals before getting the meal. Staff is very friendly,... More

This is our favorite place to eat when we are in Cres. My parents are from the island and we always visit Bukaleta for the delicious lamb, fresh baked bread and pasta dishes. I have been coming to Cres for many years and I can easily say this is the best restaurant on the island. The lamb is served many... More
