The Kvarner Food label stands for the food establishments such as konobas, bistros, taverns and restaurants boasting a cosy interior with ethno-style ambiance, and offering traditional dishes made from fresh local ingredients such as fish, shrimps, lamb, cheese, Mediterranean fruit and vegetables, wild aromatic herbs, Krk prosciutto, šurlice (handmade pasta) and homemade olive oil. All these pair perfectly with the Vrbnik Žlahtina wine made from the native variety of white grapes, also used to produce the world’s unique Valomet sparkling wine, fermented in the sea depths.
To be awarded the Kvarner Food quality label, a restaurant needs to score a minimum of 75 out of 100 points according to the criteria prescribed for the offer, interior and staff.
The Kvarner Food Plus label is given to the restaurants with a minimum of 90 points.
There is also a new quality label called Dog Friendly, introduced for the dog-welcoming Kvarner Gourmet and Kvarner Food establishments.
