Restaurant closed

Posted on 08 / 08 / 2011

It may be have been the best restaurant in Rijeka for vegetarians, but that didn't stop the Croatian Ministry of Health to close it down.
We went there last week (end of july 2011) and the whole place was sealed and closed, with a terrifying-looking warning of some ministry in Croatian -which I do not understand- . I'm very sorry, but the restaurant seems to have made some mistakes in the recent past... Vegetarians will have to turn to the usual Italian restaurants in Rijeka or the restaurant of the hotel Bonavia. It is quite close to where Fork used to be and it serves a good veggie salad. For the rest vegetarians will not easily be satisfied in the Kvarner/Istria region of Croatia...

Cons: Closed

    I was there today, the notice is not from the ministry of health but from the national inspectorate, and it seems to be handled by some department of workplace issues or something like that, not the sanitary inspection. Their Facebook page says they reopen on August 22, 2011, after a month of forced closure.

    Apparently due to my not understanding Croatian, I have drawn the wrong conclusion from the ministerial announcement on Fork's frontdoor. Thanks JoyS and my apologies to Fork!

Excellent veg(etari)an restaurant!

The food is delicious, both western and asian ingredients (tofu, seitan, nori, miso, lots of fresh veggies etc.) and recipes prepared in an ingenious, healthy, low-fat and fresh-tasting mediterranean way.
Cozy and friendly atmosphere and very helpful and competent waiters. Although the place is lactovegetarian, most dishes are vegan and the staff has always been ready to accomodate specific dietary requirements.
The menu varies every day.
It is quite affordable too, especially by western european standards.
Only one downside, it's quite small, only half a dozen tables inside and a few outside, so you might have to wait a bit for a table during lunch or dinner hours, especially in fall or winter when it's too cold to eat outside.

Pros: delicious and healthy food, friendly staff, affordable
Cons: few tables during peak hours

I was very lucky to find that restaurant in Rijeka. Vegetarian and many vegan dishes available. I had baked tofu with tomatosauce and polenta. It was very good. Vegan choco cake for desert. Price was some 5 Eur for that. Friendly staff. Located near city centre. Little difficult to find because the sign and entrance is on the side of the restaurant.

Pros: nice inerior, good food, vegan meals
Cons: not easy to find
