Gastronomy of island Rab

To relax in the hotels of Rab is to enjoy the top-class choice of food in their restaurants. Every day, a large variety of dishes are prepared from carefully selected ingredients. The menus include international and local cuisine, and meals are prepared in accordance with the guests' wishes and desires. 

Whether you choose bed and breakfast or full board or half board, you will be delighted with the buffet breakfast or dinner with its rich selection, as well as with the fresh ingredients used. Buffet means that you create your own menu for each meal, and it is good to know that drinks are also included in the dinner buffets at the Hotel Eva, the Pavilion Rooms Suha Punta and in hotels of the tourist resort of San Marino. 

Following modern trends, our restaurants also offer vegetarian cuisine, so that every guest can enjoy delicious food, regardless of their dietary habits. 

Along with the food and drink service in our restaurants, which are connected with the board and lodging option, we also offer a special service: banquets with congresses and special events such as weddings. If you wish, we will also organise catering for locations outside the hotels. 

Of course, the offer of food is especially prepared to highlight the features of the local cuisine. The cuisine of the island of Rab is typical Mediterranean food, abundant with fresh fruit, vegetables and fish, and prepared with olive oils and light seasoning. Therefore, the range of food in our restaurants includes light soups made from seasonal vegetables, sočivo – Rab's famous lentils, fresh fish baked or grilled and lightly seasoned with garlic and rosemary, stewed meat in sauces with wine or sherry and the ever-present gnocchi and pastas. A special place is reserved for traditional sweets: Rab's own cake ('rapska torta') and fritters served with homemade brandy often enriched with fragrant herbs or honey. 

The exceptional quality of the gastronomic service in Imperial’s restaurants is also credited to the excellent hospitality staff. Equally important is the tradition of tourism and hospitality of almost 50 years. All of these are the reasons why guests continue to choose the Imperial hotels as their holiday host on the Island of Rab.
