Food Scene
Kalalarga is the pedestrian area with many shops and restaurants - I really recommend a tavern of the same name Kalalarga which is at the beginning of the street, a minute away from my apartment. Brunches are highly recommended - for 50 kunas you can get a decent meal! You might not always get what's on the menu, because their offer changes daily depending on what fresh fish they get from the local fishermen. Book your table in advance!

Romana Cafe is an excellent place if you want to enjoy your coffee watching the world go by and indulge in an absolutely perfect selection of ice cream and cakes! Highly recommended! 5 stars! Try lemon cake, Makarana cake (our speciality); as for icecreams, they are all delicious although my favourites are sour cherry with yogurt and orange with cheese! With your morning coffee, try their marmalade and chocolate croissants!

Excellent restaurant - good value for money, friendly people, perfect view of the town and the mountain! Very pleasant, especially in hot summer nights when there's always a light breeze! I recommend brunches from 12 to 14 - good meals at reasonable prices. For 50 -60 kunas you can have a decent meal.

Situated in Brela, this restaurant is a must! Food's out of this world and so is the view of the sea and the islands! If you're without a car, they have a minibus to pick you up and drop you off whenever suits you! Don't miss it! My favourite dish is the black risotto! And semifreddo for the dessert! Booking in advance is imperative! If you decide to go, let me know and I can book a table for you. They open at 6pm.

At the east end of the seafront and right next to the splendid new pier, this hotel offers a nice atmosphere in two restaurants and a lovely cafe with perfect coffee and cakes. You might want to explore the interior of the hotel - it is reminiscent of long forgotten Dalmatian houses and villages! I usually go there in hot summer nights to enjoy a cool breeze from the sea!

Although opened only a couple of years ago, this restaurant has already managed to establish itself as one of the most interesting places on the gastronomy scene of Makarska. It's run by a woman who has been writing her culinary blog for many years now. The interior of the restaurant is very pleasantly decorated while the outside tables are practically on the Kalalarga street itself. I'd recommend brunches - you can get a decent meal for 50 kunas.

This is one of the restaurants with the longest tradition in Makarska. I can't remember the time when it wasn't here! It wouldn't still be working if the food wasn't really good. They offer traditional Dalmatian cuisine, lots of fish, grilled meat; definitely try Pašticada - our local speciality! The same owner has the Peškera Restaurant on the beach promenade - also highly recommended!

Although in the very centre of town, this restaurant of the same name as the square, is a peaceful spot where you can enjoy good homemade food. Decorated in a shabby chic style, it is a really pleasant place for an evening out. The owner's policy is "First come, first served!" He doesn't take advance reservations, so you will usually see a line of people waiting for a table.

On the way to St. Peter's Peninsula, in a nice shade of tall pine trees, there's this fishermen's club, a favourite place where locals meet and where coffee and beer are the cheapest. If you like peace and quiet, this is the place to go. I like my morning coffee here before going to the beach.

Bobis is our oldest bakery and pastry shop. It's been with us since 1948. You can enjoy their donuts, croissants and other pastry - my favourite is "kravata" (tie in Croatian) with lots of sunflower seeds. Coffee is also good! A good choice for breakfast.

Without this great grey mountain rising steeply from the coast, the experience of being in Makarska would be much less of a thrill! You can drive up there ( be careful, the road is narrow and winding) but the best way is to enjoy a good long hike! A word of caution - prepare well, wear strong hiking boots (not flip-flops like me when I was 19) , take plenty of water, a hat and sunscreen and set off at sunrise. There are agencies that organize tours of the mountain - feel free to contact me for more information!

On the way to Dubrovnik don't miss the Trsteno Arboretum - the oldest botanical garden in Europe. It was erected in 1498. A stunning collection of unique exotic plants, beautiful Neptune's Fountain, nice paths - don't miss this pearl! Note: in the third and fourth season of Game of Thrones, Arboretum was used as the setting of the Red Keep Palace gardens in King's Landing.

This church is a perfect setting for a romantic wedding! In front of the church and dotted around the peninsula you'll find the ruins of buildings dating back to Roman, Venetian and prehistoric times. The forest park and the view of the town, the cliffs and the mountain make it well worth enjoying a stroll here. In summer this is where concerts take place - I will let you know!

The focal point of the town with the statue of one of our greatest poets in the middle, the square serves as a stage for concerts in summer months. The poet's name is Andrija Kačić Miošić - he was born in 1704. He was a monk but also a philosopher, a teacher as well as a poet who contributed much to the development of the modern Croatian language. All in all, a smashing bloke, you could say!

Makarska was named after Makar, a picturesque small village at the foot of the mountain! This is the starting point if you want to climb to the top of Biokovo! It takes just about half an hour on foot to get from the apartment to Makar! Just go up the street where my apartment is and follow the signs.

A spectacular stone structure in front of St. Mark's Cathedral featuring three lions' heads spouting water from their mouths. The fountain dates from the time when the Venetians occupied this coast - the period in history mainly responsible for the romantic Baroque appearance of the older parts of Makarska. This is where people used to come to get their supplies and indulge in a little juicy gossip along the way. In summer months this is where jazz bands perform.

This statue was erected in 2006 to pay homage to the tourist on the centenary of tourism in the town. The statue is of a rather chic couple taking a stroll along the waterfront.

Young people usually flock here both during the day and at night.
Newly opened, just a minute away from my apartment, this place offers a fine selection of wines and other drinks. It could be a nice follow-up to a perfect dinner at the Kalalarga Tavern, which is just a metre away. It gets quite busy at night with people sitting on the stone wall, sipping their drinks and chatting leisurely.

Favourite place for the locals - both in the morning for a coffee or at night for a fine selection of beers. You can't miss it - it's at the very end of the seafront!

Just off the main beach there's a street market with stalls offering clothes, beachwear, souvenirs and much more. Also, there you can grab a quick lunch or snack in many small restaurants, have a coffee, cold drink or ice cream while spending the whole day on the beach.
