Even though the interior with its beautiful aquarium lacks nothing at all, it’s a lot nicer to sit on the terrace by the sea in Zadar’s Foša. The gentle sounds of the music mingle with the lapping of the waves and the cawing of a seagull in love. The old walls on one side of the bay, the blue sea and a mixture of all the world’s languages, along with being constantly full – tell us that it is also May here, which only contributes to the positivity of the pleasant staff.
Foša is a fish restaurant, but there are also dishes for meat lovers, mostly veal, served in many ways - from tenderloin to rump steak. Of course, there are the unmissable prosciutto ham and Pag cheese, which at the beginning of your gastronomic pleasure amplify the already strong Mediterranean feeling. To begin with, the fantastic bruschetta with flavours of the Adriatic, whilst Foša’s trump card are definitely the starters. At least because of their size. A dozen ways to prepare scampi, shrimps, mussels, squid or clams irresistibly attracts you to try them - and we remind that you are only one metre away from the sea!
But the main dish lights up the ambience when you choose among wild fish or those from fish farms, blue, white, John Dory, red scorpionfish. Logically, if there is place where one should eat specialties like spiny lobster or common lobster, then Foša is the right place - clearly, you will have to wait an hour for it. Lava cake and cheesecake complete the story, unless you are intrigued by the homemade sorbet. Very tasty for the end, recommended. As in any true fish restaurant, here too the waiter will bring you the fresh catch on a platter, and fillet the one you select - in front of you.
Although there is a possibility to select the daily menu of 100 or 245 kunas, those who wish to choose will face prices a little bit higher than the average, however the view and the service will greatly compensate for that.
The whole fish story is accompanied by a high quality wine list, although more attention could be paid to wines from the region (only two or three on the list, although the Pošip of the Royal Vineyards is fantastic).
