Chef Zlatko Marinović
Few chefs know the richness of the Adriatic sea better than Zlatko Marinović, the owner of the cult restaurant “Noštromo”, a favorite gathering place for seafood lovers located right next to the Split fish market. A former diver and Captain of the national spearfishing team, in his restaurant chef Marinović turns wigs, sea urchins and rare shells into imaginative rhapsodies on plates. The menu is usually created in accordance with the daily offer of fresh fish, his own mood and the wishes of his guests.
Twice Golden Chef of Croatia and once Silver Chef of the Mediterranean, Marinović recently got the prestigious Gault&Millau Croatia Trophy for the Chef of the Modern Traditional Cuisine 2021 while his restaurant “Noštromo” was awarded with 3 GM toques (chef’s hats). The dedication and the quality of his work were recognized by WACS – the World Association of Chefs’ Societies that has chosen chef Marinović as one of its international judges.
