Barun, a family restaurant known for having the best fish, is located just five minutes away from the beach in Šibenik. Every fish is used to prepare the best food. Squids, scorpion fish, sharp snout sea bream, John Dory, sea bream, eels and every other fish that gets entangles in the fishing net is served on a platter and prepared any way that comes to your mind.
If you’d like to try the lobster, you’ll need to arrange it in advance, especially during the season. The restaurant is open all year-round and it’s especially manned in December during the cod season when they offer different versions of this fish. Barun is very popular during summer because of its beautiful terrace in its magical garden and the smell of coal drifting from the grill. The restaurant is spacious enough to take in large groups of visitors. Since it opened its doors less than 40 years ago, the restaurant has expanded bit by bit. Certificates of quality are displayed next to the counter so everybody can see that Barun knows how to prepare and decorate their dishes. Expert juries from different competitions agreed that their cod, fish or squid dishes should be given recognition.
Barun’s deep-rooted and enduring tradition is reflected in the old tools adorning the restaurant. Charming bottles used to store superb olive oil made from fruits obtained from the family olive groves also pay tribute to this restaurant’s fine tradition. The coupage of fragrant varieties is also homemade. Just like organically farmed vegetables added to soups or broth and served as a side dish to seafood delicacies. Don’t miss out on the fish soup. Every spoonful is a trip down memory lane. It reveals pictures of your mom or grandma cooking at the stove and recreates that nice homey feeling. The friendly staff willing to explain everything you need to know about the Šibenik region further add to this vibe.
Fish or buzara (shellfish sautéed in garlic, olive oil, parsley & white wine)? It doesn’t matter because both are phenomenal. Dipping slices of bread in olive oil, gravy or tomato sauce with delicious forearm-long shrimp is a regular ritual in Dalmatia. Having wine is mandatory while you’re doing this. Barun’s wine list gives an overview of fantastic winemakers from across Croatia, from the islands all the way to Slavonia. If you’d like, you can start your meal with a sparkling wine, while red wines go great with the meat offer. Irredeemable meat lovers are recommended to try the steak tartare, Chateaubriand and several types of beefsteak.
