Libeccio - a touch of the Mediterranean on each plate

The Rivalmare Boutique Hotel's restaurant Libeccio offers its guests an eno-gourmet experience, blending the Mediterranean cuisine with the top wine card of Istria. It got its name after a dry and warm wind  Libeccio which comes from the sea and blows across the Adriatic after the southern wind "jugo".

A careful choice of best quality seasonal and local produce and a chef's innovative interpretation create an extraordinary combination of tastes, aromas and colours. Pastel colours and designer furniture dominate the modern restaurant interior, while its walls are adorned with the oil paintings of renowned artists. The atmosphere is magic: the sea just a few steps away and your senses eager to indulge in the experience.

Cocktail, snack or coffee?

As nice weather and long days start here as soon as early spring, the restaurant and bar terrace is an unavoidable place for enjoyment in the warm sun rays.

If you are a sea lover, you do not have to go any further than the terrace of the restaurant Libeccio. Your eyes absently wandering across the sea, while you enjoy the rich bar drink offer – from coffee, freshly-made fruit juices, cocktails, to top quality Istrian wines. Or savour the Istrian culinary magic, a marriage of the traditional and the modern, accompanied always by carefully selected wines! 

A royal breakfast – for the perfect start to your day!

Enjoy your breakfast in the relaxing ambience of the restaurant Libeccio or in the fresh air, a mere few steps away from the sea. For a full morning awakening, treat your body to freshly-made fruit juices, seasonal fruit and hot coffee, made to suit your taste.

Start your day with light salads, maintain your slim figure with a large choice of cereals and yogurt, or lift your spirits with delicious croissants and marmalades. Using our recipes and according to your taste, we will also prepare boiled or scrambled eggs and omelettes. What more is needed for a good start to your day? 

Taste every season!

A personalised menu alters depending on the season, so, in spring, you can savour the taste of wild asparagus and, in the autumn, taste dishes prepared with truffles.

At the restaurant Libeccio guests are able to choose dishes to suit their diets. For example, you can find gluten-free dishes on the menu, but also those adapted to vegetarians. It is hard to single out the best dish on the menu. Each course sequence tells its own story. No matter whether it concerns traditional Istrian pasta, a well ripened piece of meat or freshly prepared fish specialities – the chef's modern interpretation will introduce you to a unique gourmet experience. The restaurant Libeccio's choice is enriched also by top quality Istrian wines. Get your senses ready and indulge yourselves in the eno-gourmet experience of the restaurant Libeccio!
