This is a very good konoba if you like lamb meat. There is also a space for kids to play. Very kind personnel. Try fried lamb brain also. Olito i grašnjaci, house sweets are great.

The best lamb I have ever tried. Prices are average for lamb specialities (which is never cheap) but this one tastes like heaven.

After many years of not eating lamb, this place made me think otherwise. Very friendly staff, excellent food (We had the Tris) and reasonable pricing. Well done Bukaleta! We will visit again soon enough😍

Definitely worth a visit if you’re into lamb specialities. I recommend three types of lamb meal in combination with homemade white wine. Was licking my fingers after every bite.

Very simple: This is the best place and worth the drive. Great lamb, great local pasta, good dessert, you should reserve a table, it is very popular to people from Croatia and international. Very reasonable prices. Only 5 star place for me on Cres.

No need to check menu, just take lamb and you will not make mistake. Prepared in several different ways: grilled, roasted, cooked or deep-fried. Our every visit on Cres island must include visit to Bukaleta restaurant.

We were told by the locals to come here for the lamb, and this was hands down some of the best lamb I have ever tasted. Best gnocchi too! Reasonably priced, with friendly yet efficient service, it was well worth the drive up the hill...More
