Sample sardines at Konoba Batana
Where better to sample Fažana’s famed sardines than here at Konoba Batana, named after the flat-bottomed boats fishermen still take out to sea. You’re also right on the waterfront, close to the taxi boat for Brijuni. Sardines can be enjoyed as a cold starter, as part of the fisherman’s salad, integral to the fish platter for two or, quite simply, grilled with divine olive oil, sprinkled with lemon and served ten to a plate. There are plenty of other options, of course, such as white fish with greens and classic Balkan carnivorous favourite pljeskavica, a hulking meat patty served with ajvar.
