What started as a family-run tavern in the coastal village of Banjole on the southern Istrian peninsula is evolving into one of Croatia’s most talked about seafood taverns, thanks to the inspirations of chef David Skoko and his family. A fisherman’s son, Skoko opened Konoba Batelina with his mother and father in 2000 with an eye on preparing “everything a fishing net takes out of the sea”, no matter how foreign it might seem to the diner’s palate.
