Chef Boško Lonac has been selecting the best ingredients that the Mediterranean has to offer. Using fresh caught seafood from the Adriatic coast has always been at the heart of Proto since the very beginning. Adriatic seafood is delicious, fresh and exciting to get to experience in Croatia. Proto is staying true and getting fresh ingredients from local markets and fish straight from the sea, so that you can taste the freshness in their flavors. While using the Croatian varieties of wine to compliment the dishes perfectly. Proto has a wide range of Croatian wines that are delicately chosen for each meal to enhance flavor and truly understand Croatian Cuisine.
