Simple croatian 'konoba' in a small farmer village. Outstanding lamb. Way better than the tourist traps in other places. Worth the drive from Cres town - will definitely be back for the lamb.

It's a place we don't miss when (once a year on a day trip) we visit Cres or Losinj. Sometimes we decide to make a trip just to finish it with lamb dish in Bukaleta. Everything is exceptional. The way they prepare lamb meat, is only possible to taste here. If you are lucky there will be no groups. But the service is even then quick and good. "Tripice" is something we have to taste next year. And this year we had some very good cakes, all home made. Even took some for "to go".

It's hard to reach this place on the Cres island, but it's worth a visit. Located in Loznati, a faraway, isolated village on the island, reachable by car (or if you have stamina on a bike), this restaurant offers exceptional food at really good prices. Many locals visit it regularly: at least, this is what your correspondent saw at lunch time.
The waiters were amazing, made you feel like really at home. The terrace is absolutely stunning, surrounded by fig trees and vegetation: you will have a really great time here.
Totally recommended.

We tried grilled, fried and skewered lamb, all delicious in their own way. Grilled lakb liver is not gound just anywhere, so we tried that too, very good. Lamb goulash was just excellent with homemade gnocchi. Servings were large and well prepared.
Tomate they used for the salad was stuff dreams are (sometimes) made of. :-) We had good olive oil and some excellent wine vinegar to use on our salads, making them really stand out.
Staff were helpful, polite and busy. Terrace is green and leafy, yet somewhat hot (late August will do that). Place was almost full for lunch. Thrre is plenty of free parking available just outside of the restaurant.
Highly recommended for meat lovers.

If somebody think that don't like lamb, please go to Bukaleta and you will change your mind. Best lamb I have ever eat.
