In the middle of Kastav, on the Lokvina square, the gourmet restaurant and boutique hotel Kukuriku is situated. Your pleasure is our main goal. This hedonistic destination was our main guiding line in the choice of the hotel equipment and the creation of the restaurant menu. Each room will welcome you with different design furniture and with a carefully planned atmosphere of light design. To make your stay as pleasant as possible, we have also created for you special bedding, warm as the best cotton and of the touch of silk, so you can quietly fall in the land of dreams while our dreams also come true: your pleasure. We will surprise your taste buds with a distinctive eno-gastro offer of the Kukuriku gourmet restaurant. The delicacies created with an avant-garde approach and the perspicuity of the main creator Nenad Kukurin, are established on more than 40 years of tradition of the Kukuriku family restaurant. His characteristic style and artistic approach towards the culture of the table has determined much of the todays accepted guidelines in gastronomy and of the sometimes unexpected tandem of food and drinks. Among the numerous prizes and recognitions that he gained with his work, Nenad admits that his biggest joy is to see the pleasure on the faces of the guests to which he himself prepares and serves his creations. Settled not even 6 km from the sea, at 360m of altitude, in a moderate Mediterranean climate, you will enjoy relaxation and the offer of the delicacies of our restaurant, unobstructed by the summer heath or the winter cold.

Restaurant Kukuriku

Natural, sincere, unique

The Kukuriku gourmet restaurant can accomodate up to 60 guests in the internal space and just as many on the summer terrace situated immediately in front of the hotel. As first restaurant in Croatia to have set the postulates on slow-food, it maintains his continuity of the culture of the table and numerous contents connected to that. The eno-gastro story which you will experience in Kukuriku, lifts the consummation at a higher level and accentuates hedonism. The offer is based on the desire of avoiding boredom and on the philosophy of the owner, Nenad Kukurin: “We cook what we would like to eat ourselves. We have quite a lot of experience and we like to eat and drink”. In Kukuriku’s kitchen there are recipes being created every day and they are based on the daily offer of the local market and on the gifts of nature found in the area of Kastav. The chefs, like jazz musicians, improvise with fine groceries and create dishes which stress out the local taste and scent. The complexity of the tastes, the luxury of the forms and of the colors on the plate, represent a sensation for the taste buds and for the eyes, and in the meanwhile, lunches and dinners in good company are instantly transformed in a real celebration of food. When choosing the dishes, the best thing is to let yourself in the hands of the personnel and of the kitchen and allow them to enthuse you with courses of fish, meat or vegetarian dishes. To avoid losing yourself among the 150 wine labels of the Kukuriku wine cellar, our sommeliers will pair each dish with a perfect wine. It often happens that our guests cannot transfer completely their impressions on Kukuriku to their friends, acquaintances and business partners. The atmosphere of our offer is the key of your memory on the aromas and tastes that you will want to store in the map of your memories over and over again.
