Pršuta is your sanctuary when Groda is groaning elbow-to-elbow in high season. Affable owner Vidan won’t hesitate to discuss the history and/or the culinary specialities of Croatia. Wooden beamed ceilings and antique furniture surround sofas, pršut hams hangs from above. A glass of top-quality red (30kn-70kn), such as a Zlatan Plavac Grand Cru, matches perfectly with a plate of regional sheeps’ cheese or whatever Vidan decides to bring out that day and share with the room. It is not uncommon for perfect strangers to become friends and sample each other’s tipples. The wine cabinet even contains a ’47 Bourgogne. There is, at any given moment, more than 1,000 euros’ worth of wine open behind the bar – and a guitar sitting in the corner for anyone who feels the inclination.
