A member of the family since 1754

The fort, where the restaurant is located, rose to fame in the 16th century as a trading post used primarily for salt trade between the people of Omiš and the Ottoman Turks. The salt, an extremely valuable commodity at the time, was transported to Slanica by sea and river, where it was stored and shipped further inland. A few centuries later, our ancestor Ivan Rogošić received 12.2 kanapi (approx. 4.7 hectares) of land from the Venetians on which the fort was located. In order to pay homage to our great-grandfather’s legacy, in 1996, we opened a restaurant in the fort in which we wanted to convey the diversity and the beauty of this region. From then onwards, the restaurant has been thriving on the unity of our family and our love for tradition.

So close, yet so unique

En route to the restaurant, either by boat or by car, the phenomenal scenery will take your breath away. Once there, you’ll be greeted by ducks, grebes and herons passing between cattail, bamboo, poplar and plane trees, with the imposing mounting rising above them. Located just a 5-minute drive from the town of Omiš and the Adriatic Sea, so close yet far enough from the hustle and bustle of the big cities like Makarska and Split, our restaurant is a must-try both for foodies and nature lovers.

Teeming with life, the river and its surrounding area create a beautiful backdrop and provide us with an inexhaustible source of culinary inspiration.
