They are constantly working on new knowledge about a healthy diet that is immediately applicable in the kitchen.
When preparing meals, they exclusively use organic grains, legumes and fresh vegetables and strictly avoid any additives, refined products, GM foods, white sugar or white flour. Regardless of which meal is chosen from the rich selection of Makrovega, you can be sure it will be freshly prepared. Within the restaurant there is no smoking and liquors are prohibited and this is the only oasis of peace and health in the city of Split of this kind.
