The National Restaurant Lička kuća was constructed in 1972 as a simple space with the feel of a traditional house in the Lika region, where guests can enjoy a traditional, local meal. The restaurant was fully refurbished in 2015 in the original Lika rustic style. The Lička kuća restaurant is built on two stories, with a total seating capacity of 270. The restaurant is situated on the state road DC429, just opposite the northern entrance to the national park (Entrance 1).
At the centre of the restaurant is the open hearth, where lamb is roasted on a spit and the Lika delicacies are prepared under the iron bell. Visitors can also view many artefacts typical of the daily lives of the Lika families in the past.
The restaurant menu brings together all the delicacies of the Lika region, made from traditional recipes and from locally sourced products. Prosciutto, cheese, lamb baked under the iron bell, grilled dishes, roasted potato halves, trout, fermented milk, Lika fritters, Lika cheese, apple or plum strudels, are just a few of the specialities made at this famous restaurant.
