Restaurant Navis

Restaurant Navis

Perched on Kvarner’s cliffs, lies hotel and restaurant Navis. Here, you can munch on an array of delicacies from the Adriatic sea, while enjoying the most stunning backdrop: mountains, azure waves, and the coastline of Preluk Bay. Housed in a 5-star hotel, this gourmet hotspot in Opatija, Croatia, showcases the best ingredients that Mediterranean and continental cuisine have to offer – with a contemporary twist. It’s no wonder that their menu was recommended in the Michelin Guide in 2020. Next to its renowned fresh seafood dishes, Navis is also the first to present a sushi repertoire in the Kvarner region. Its modern dining room, as well as the spacious terrace, provide an incredible vista of the Kvarner archipelago. In other words: expect a truly mind-blowing gastronomic experience.

Navis’ cuisine

At Navis, the chef and his kitchen team prepare delicious regional specialties. Except for the imported French foie gras, all dishes are made with local and seasonal ingredients. From fresh fish specialties to traditional dishes baked under a baking lid: it’s not easy to pick a favourite. On the à la carte menu you can find Adriatic tuna carpaccio, lobster, fresh oysters, steak with Istrian truffles, gregada fish and potato stew, and homemade bread from the wood-burning oven. The sushi menu, called 'Fusion by Navis', showcases the chef’s beautiful blend of Japanese techniques and innovative ideas. Here, traditional sushi ingredients, like salmon, are replaced with fresh, locally-sourced fish. Expect three types of sushi: nigiri, sashimi, and uramaki. These are made from Adriatic tuna or Adriatic white fish such as brancin (sea bass), orada (sea bream), or dentex. 

Opatija area

Situated along the shore of Opatija, hotel restaurant Navis is the perfect starting point for a range of activities. From here, the islands of Krk, Cres, and Mali Lošinj are within reach. As well as Brijuni National Park, which is within a one-hour drive. In the mountain region of Gorski Kotar you’ll find numerous hiking trails, wild forests, lakes, and Risnjak National Park. Croatia's most famous national park, Plitvice Lakes, is a 3-hour drive from the hotel. As a hotel guest, you can embark on a trip with one of the restaurant’s local fishermen to experience Kvarner Bay’s fascinating wildlife. In addition, the hotel rents stand-up paddles, kayaks, boats, and has a dock that accommodates yachts or sailing boats (up to 30 meters long).

Each room is equipped with Wi-Fi and a private terrace with a marvelous view of the sea.
