Laurus was established in 2003 and is run by its owner Mr Krunoslav Kapetanović. It quickly became known for its superb, innovative cuisine, which has remained a distinctive feature of the restaurant. Laurus is particularly popular among guests who appreciate dishes prepared in an original way and a fine selection of excellent wines.
The restaurant is located in the Hotel Villa Kapetanović, which offers 24 comfortable rooms, a spa centre, two conference halls and an outdoor pool. As a guest of our hotel, you can leave your car in our garage or in the private outdoor parking area, benefit from all the hotel amenities, and enjoy dinner at Laurus without having to drive to the centre of town and waste time looking for a parking space. You can rest assured that our restaurant offers excellent value for money and a great choice of exclusive dishes prepared with fresh seasonal ingredients.
Laurus stands for superb cuisine, an extensive wine list, a romantic ambience and a spectacular view of Kvarner Bay and its islands. It is really hard to put into words how special the view from our restaurant's terrace is – you should experience this beauty first hand. Therefore, we invite you to visit our restaurant where you can feel the gentle breeze of the tramontana wind, admire the sunset behind Mount Učka, and enjoy the view of Kvarner Bay in the moonlight.
See you at Laurus!
Fresh, seasonal, local, creative and with character – these are the basic principles of Laurus' cuisine, where traditional and modern are combined in a special treat for the eye and palate.
In our restaurant, you can choose from both classical and gourmet menus.
Our Carpaccio, prepared with the finest fish, scampi or mussels, is the perfect start to a dinner to remember. For main course, why not opt for something from our wood-fired grill, for which we choose only the best natural wood to ensure the best taste for your dish. On our table, you will also find the best extra-virgin olive oils from Kvarner and Istria. If you fancy lobster, you can choose it from our aquarium and have it prepared by our chef to your taste.
Our bread comes from a wood-fired oven and our cakes and pastries from our own pastry shop. We are particularly proud of our much sought-after stuffed gnocchi and home-made noodles.
Our four- or seven-course tasting menu will take you on an unforgettable culinary journey through the tastes and scents of the best dishes and wines of Kvarner and Istria. If you decide to try this kind of menu – which we highly recommend – please make sure you take your time and forget about the world outside. If you want a truly unique culinary experience, leave it to us. We will create a tailor-made menu especially for you.
