The beautiful and relaxing setting of our family house in Stara Novalja has been inviting travellers from all over the world since 1987. Care and dedication in preparation of the seafood and other local meals is one of the things that we are known for. It is also one of the main reasons that our guests keep coming back to us. The other one, without doubt, is the comfortable, spacious and friendly environment that will wait for you after you book your summer holiday home in Arka.
Our restaurant menu is based exclusively on fresh and seasonal local ingredients. What is very special about Arka is our fisherman who goes fishing every morning and our daily menu depends on what he brings to the restaurant’s kitchen. All the fish and the seafood is fresh and prepared according to traditional recipes from Pag. We combine the basic ingredients with the side dishes and sauces such as famous Adriatic buzara. Mediterranean spices and herbs go well with seasonal ingredients and often provide alluring aromas and flavours that will make you want to taste everything from the menu.
There are several menu concepts in Arka. The daily menu depends on the fish and seafood that our father catches in the morning. Simplicity and abundance of traditional Dalmatian cuisine are present in all the courses we offer to our guests. Specialties of the house take a lot of time and patience. That is why we have a practice of pre-ordering. Gastro-dinner is a tasting menu with several courses promising a real culinary adventure. All you have to do is sit and relax on the terrace and we will come up with the perfect sequence of meals for you and your family.
With the charming ambient, good local wines and family atmosphere – you will surely be happy.
