Michelin-starred Fine Dining Restaurant & Lounge in Rijeka, Croatia.

The vibrant fine-dining, signature rooftop Nebo Restaurant & Lounge by the youngest Croatian Michelin starred Chef Deni Srdoč, in the Hilton Rijeka Costabella Beach Resort & Spa, proudly blends the unique flavors of Croatia with breathtaking views over the Adriatic. From creative dishes in the restaurant to evening cocktails in the airy lounge, this vibrant fine dining destination in Rijeka guides its guests on a journey to new heights of Croatian gastronomy.

New heights in Croatian gastronomy guided by Chef Deni Srdoč are carefully crafted tasting menus paired with exclusive regional wines and a special selection of spirits and cocktails at the lounge. 

Prior to joining Hilton Rijeka Costabella Beach Resort & Spa, Krk island born Deni Srdoč was a Head Chef at Draga di Lovrana Restaurant. In 2018, Srdoč was named the Best Young Chef in Croatia and the Young Talent of the year by Gault & Millau. At the age of 27, Deni Srdoč received his first Michelin star, becoming the youngest chef in Croatia to hold the prestigious culinary award.

Thirty-year-old Deni Srdoč owes his love and passion for cooking to his grandmother, who was his inspiration for choosing a career and the decision to enroll in the private culinary institute Oliva Allegra in Split. After school, Srdoč quickly prepared to be a sous chef thanks to his culinary talent and experience in famous restaurants.

Srdoč's cooking style blends modern with traditional touches, underpinned by an Italian-French influence. While the chef's main source of inspiration remains rooted in his Mediterranean heritage, Srdoč views gastronomy as a global art form inspired by his everyday life and world travels that take him on curious journeys towards understanding the connection between the local and global in every cuisine.

To guide his guests on a discovery of the destination, Srdoč selects the ingredients from carefully chosen Croatian farmers and producers that align with the chef's 'farm to table' and 'zero food waste' philosophies. Organically grown and locally sourced ingredients are a staple in his recipes and will inspire the chef's new culinary creations that will delight the palates of the guests at the Nebo Restaurant & Lounge through distinctive yet complementary textures and flavors.

“Situated on the fifth floor of the brand-new Hilton Rijeka Costabella Beach Resort & Spa, this restaurant boasts breathtaking views of the Adriatic Sea, the coast, and the unspoiled island of Cres, while the menu, comprising 5, 8 or 14 courses, is just as enticing as the location. The dishes tell the story of Croatia’s culinary history, featuring traditional specialities made from regional ingredients alongside more adventurous, modern and creative fare. Highly professional service and a wine list featuring labels from around the world add to its appeal.”
