Rudolf Štefan, the head chef and owner of the Pelegrini, has creatively expanded the offerings of the best Šibenik and best-known Dalmatian restaurant this summer.

Pelegrini now offers lunches and dinners on a boat, cruising through the Šibenik archipelago. Pelegrini provides two options for high-quality local cuisine served on the boat.

The experiences are available as follows:

  • the Boat Experience, which lasts five and a half hours, and
  • the Sunset option, which lasts an hour and a half.

Boat and Sunset Experience can be rented by two or four guests, offering a truly unique and exclusive gastronomic ambient experience.

Each excursion has a unique wine selection tailored to the guests’ preferences, complementing the Pelegrini culinary delights.

As the Chef and owner of Pelegrini puts it,

“For centuries, Šibenik has gathered recipes that have woven through generations into local tradition and culture. Major world-famous gastronomies have left their secret flavors here, and we recreate them with the unique Pelegrini signature.”

Rudolf Štefan has significantly innovated Dalmatian restaurant tourism by introducing fine dining on a boat.

Guests can enjoy a sailing experience, a breathtaking sunset, Michelin-level cuisine, and a serious wine list, all in the company of a chef-steersman.

Pelegrini offers a modern interpretation of traditional Dalmatian flavors, drawing inspiration from the rich gastronomic heritage of the region they call home.

Through their service, they aim to convey a love for gastronomy as a calling and embrace the Dalmatian way of life.
