This is the first time that one of the world’s most prestigious guides has dedicated himself to restaurants, bistros, taverns and other catering facilities throughout Croatia. This is the first time that the selection has been completely anonymous and that the quality assessments have been made on the basis of an assessment methodology developed by Gault & Millau for almost 60 years and which is the same in all countries where there is a guide.”, Said Ingrid Badurina Danielsson, CEO of Gault & Millau Croatia.Mastercard and Gault & Millau Croatia introduce a new award Payment Excellence AwardThe partner of the first Croatian edition of the guide is Mastercard, which initiated the award in an additional category – given the payment options that restaurants offer and the communication of these options to visitors. The restaurant and POP location with the most points in this category will be awarded a prize Payment Excellence Award, with the aim of encouraging the introduction of electronic payments in catering facilities in Croatia. Namely, we increasingly encounter media articles such as those that tourists in Croatia are bothered by the fact that cards are not accepted in restaurants and other catering facilities, so an initiative like this is aimed precisely at encouraging financial inclusion.A mobile application is already available to mobile phone users, showing ratings and detailed descriptions of restaurants in countries that are part of the Gault & Millau family. The app finds restaurants, bistros, patisseries, wine bars that are nearby.
