Medugorje has been a major pilgrimage
site for over two decades. Those twenty years of experience
has turned this tiny town into a major international tourist
destination. The rush of pilgrims has also brought many new
restaurants and menus to Medugorje.
There are many restaurants and eateries in Medugorje and
most hotels/pansions have there own restaurants for their
guests. The specialty of the day is certainly Dalmatian
and Herzegovina cuisine.
There are also continental and Italian dishes readily
available and the locals have certainly learned of the
northern European cravings for a "proper" breakfast. Dining
in Medugorje's traditional restaurants offer excellent
menu's of Herzegovina meals including; sarma, teletina
(veal), filled peppers, and grilled lamb and pork just
to name a few. Both the traditional and Dalmatian
restaurants specialize in fresh and saltwater fish dishes.
The local trout, pastrmka, is always a good buy. Do
try a tasty platter of Herzegovina cheese (livanksi, iz
mijeha, kozija), prosciutto with some fine red wines
from the region. Service in Medugorje is good and tipping is
normal, but not required.
