The newly opened Matsunoki (Eng. pine tree) is a fusion restaurant of the traditional Japanese cuisine merging original Japanese foods with quality fresh Croatian foods grown ecologically and locally. The goal of the chef’s team headed by Saša Pribičević, the main chef of the restaurant, was to offer the guests the best Croatian and international flavours using fresh seasonal foods organically grown that are especially appreciated by the guests of the hotel and villas of the Lošinj Hotels & Villas hotel brand.
All guests of LH&V and the Island of Lošinj, all those who love Japanese cuisine, as well as yachtsmen traversing the Cres-Lošinj waters, can find oysters with wine granita and herbs, maki sushi, beef teriyaki, karrage chicken, matcha ice-cream with sweet azuki bean paste and sesame crumble, as well as other famous Japanese dishes with a dash of Lošinj on the menu at the Matsunoki Restaurant. In addition, Matsunoki staff make their own homemade udon pasta coupled with aged beefsteak, green beans and teriyaki sauce in a wok. Superb Japanese delicacies by Saša Pribičević, the chef, are further complemented by a special offer of whiskeys by renowned distilleries in Japan, such as Nikka Taketsuru, The Yamazaki, Hakushu and Hibiki, as well as an offer of sparkling sake wines and brandies.
The Matsunoki Restaurant takes up 240 m2 and can accommodate around 70 guests. It features a striking sushi bar and an open kitchen so that the guests can see their food being prepared.
