Grotta 11 000 restaurant
The name of the restaurant pays tribute to the oldest Dalmatian, a caveman Šime who lived in the caves on the Island of Dugi Otok 11 000 years ago. The Grotta 11 000 restaurant is a culinary and ambient ode to our forefathers, to this island, to the food in its most primeval form and to the fire. The food at the Grotta 11 000 is prepared from our own ingredients: the vegetables grown under the warm Mediterranean sun on the organically clean soil of this island, the meat from family farms and the invincible Adriatic fish and seafood. The meals are cooked over an open fire: on a charcoal grill, under the bell (the lid) or in the hearth oven.
The Grotta 11 000 is seated under the sun and the stars, in the stone. The alluring scents and flavors of food made over the fire will tempt your taste buds. You will have to step into this world of joy and peace, and reconnect with nature and with yourself. Set your sails and embark on this journey chock-a-block with authentic gastro delights.
The 3.3 restaurant offers fancy dining courses paired with wines picked meticulously from our comprehensive wine list, and a spectacular, irresistible view over the olive grove and the sea.
The 3.3 restaurant extensive menu features modern, carefully considered and sophisticated versions of local flavors enhanced by our globally recognized olive oil. Our creative team of chefs zestfully taps into the ingredients from their close surroundings – the fish and seafood from the crystal clear Adriatic sea, the vegetables and fruits from our own garden and orchard – to create matchless meals of exceptionally coupled flavors, scents and appearance.
“We consider it our privilege and inspiration to be able to create meals amidst an olive grove that every year breeds a leading olive oil in the world,” our gastro team reveals in unison.
“For us, tasting meals made with such olive oil as a key ingredient is an unbeatable experience.”
