Restaurant Pelegrini

Lunch or dinner at restaurant Pelegrini is a culinary experience like no other. Located in the heart of the historic city Šibenik, it’s considered one of the country’s most attractive gourmet hotspots. Here, owner and top chef Rudolf Štefan treats your taste buds to unparalleled contemporary cuisine with local flavours. Being one of Croatia’s best chefs, it’s no surprise that his cooking has been awarded multiple honours, including a Michelin star, 4 toques and 17/20 points from Gault Millau, and 94/100 points from Falstaff. Next to the chef’s coveted cooking skills, Pelegrini also has a beautiful terrace where you can wine and dine with a phenomenal vista of the Cathedral of St. James.

JRE Jeunes Restaurateurs

Pelegrini’s chef, Rudolf Štefan, is one of the country’s most skilled cooks. Thanks to his artistic vision and extraordinary cuisine, which creatively combines tradition and innovation, Rudolf was named “Chef of the Year 2018” by the Croatian gourmet guide Dobri Restorani. But that’s not all: that same year, Dobri Restorani named Pelegrini “Best Restaurant in Croatia” for the fourth year in a row.

Pelegrini’s cuisine

Restaurant Pelegrini offers a tasting menu as well as a 4-course dinner menu. The menu varies per season and chef Rudolf Štefan works with seasonal local ingredients and small producers from the region. Constantly striving for improvement, Rudolf and his kitchen team develop new dishes each winter: every year they create nine new dishes for the following season. On the Pelegrini menu, you can find local dishes such as mussels, oysters, sea snails, sea urchins, and various types of fish. Next to Adriatic delicacies, you can also opt for meat-based dishes with lamb and veal, or one of Rudolf’s re-interpreted bestsellers: the traditional bruschetta, the beef cheeks, or the monkfish tripe.

Šibenik area

Right in the city heart of Šibenik, you’ll find Pelegrini. Much like its gastronomic heritage, the city itself dates back to the Roman period and has been influenced by the Venetians, the Ottoman Empire, and the French for centuries. So you can imagine there’s plenty to marvel at.  The restaurant itself is located inside a 700-year-old building, Villa Pelegrini-Tambača, alongside the Šibenik Cathedral (Cathedral of St. James) which is an impressive landmark and a UNESCO monument. From here, the Croatian coast is within convenient reach.
