100 leading restaurants are presented with their offer, natural and historical environment in the annual edition of the same name, which is published every year in print and online Croatian and English editions in May. It was originally initiated back in 1995, and the basic idea was to do market research on which restaurants best meet the needs of guests and highlight the leaders in order to motivate others to improve the quality of offer and service. In 1995, the survey covered about 700 restaurants, while in 2019, that number climbs to over 2400 restaurants, says Karin Mimica, the alpha and omega of this project, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary. Project of 100 leading Croatian restaurants – Restaurant Croatica the project is to promote quality in the hospitality industry through the annual election of leaders and the publication of an accompanying publication. Reward excellence and great hosts, because only in this way can we highlight the best we have and give them real support. The content of the edition has been expanded with recipes from leading specialties in order for the edition to retain its place in the home library even after the appearance of new annual editions. You can browse the last few editions on-line, and you can vote for the selection of 100 leading Croatian restaurants in 2019 HERE “Comparing the data from the questionnaire for restaurant managers from year to year, we noticed an increase in the offer and details that can motivate the guest to return, long-term investments in the quality of the offer and education of staff and numerous events in restaurants. The title of 100 leaders has become prestigious over the years, and caterers are aware that even today they can defend / deserve it only if they are recommended by many satisfied guests throughout Croatia. Mimica points out and invites everyone to join the vote in order to make the final list of the 100 best Croatian restaurants as credible as possible. As Mimica points out, part of the voting is conducted through the portal www.gastronaut.hr , where voters can further emphasize the quality of the offer, service and ambience. At the same time, caterers, restaurant managers vote with the recommendation of colleagues who are their role models and fill out questionnaires with a detailed description of their offer and service. The final word after reviewing all the materials is given by the Honorary Committee of the project, which announces a new list of 100 leaders.
