A doorway in the Old Town wall opens to the gorgeous garden terrace of this party hub, also a cavernous two-floor indoor club. It is often the liveliest bar in Krk, with drinkers packing in from early in the evening. The garden has a great bar, which serves cocktails until 2am but go inside for DJs from Italy and Croatia, live music and later drinking.
Editor's note: Disco Bar Jungle is closed with no immediate plans to reopen. A summer disco in the heart of Krk Old Town pumps out mainstream pop and disco hits for lighthearted holidaymakers. Guest DJs from around Europe break up the regular beat. The crowd is predominantly young but because there are few other places around, there is a little more age range than in most Croatian clubs. Open at sporadic weekends in winter.
An 80-year-old family business that has morphed into one of the Kvarner Gulf’s best-known gastronomic destinations, the smart, stylish Rivica is one of those places that strikes an almost perfect balance between local cuisine and modern European fine-dining expectations. The menu is obviously Mediterranean-seafood based, with plenty of favourites from the local recipe books (shrimp and courgette risotto), Kvarner classics such as škampi buzara (scampi in wine sauce), and the odd fusion recipe (a tuna starter with wasabi and soy sauce). If you just want expertly grilled fresh white fish, then Rivica is one of the best places to dig in.
The big terrace by the bustling harbour is not the only asset here – Franica offers some of the better food on tourist-swamped Baška. The seafood menu includes two types of fish platter for two, plus scallops, tuna steak and mackerel. They also focus on old-style recipes from Kvarner and Istria. Local delights, concocted with seasonal ingredients, include a hearty goulash with potatoes Krk-style, and a roasted octopus so rich and filling that, were it not for the taste, you would swear it was beef.
Of the decent restaurants on Krk town harbour, this is the more spacious, with 120 seats, 90 on the terrace. It also has the more attentive waiters. Along with recommended seafood – catch of the day and the platter for two in particular – the Konobar Corsaro offers šurlice with goulash, and a rather delicious steak with truffles.
This family-run three-star offers 20 rooms within easy reach of Krk town but closer to pretty Punat. Overlooking the marina, the Kanajt was a 16th-century summer retreat for local bishops, and calm still reigns. The warm welcome (and warm bathrooms) engender repeat custom.
