HISTORY OF TIC TAC
Slobodan Pleslić was a child of a lighthouse keeper, and he lived until his fourteenth year on a small island near Murter. After primary school, he finished hospitality school in Zagreb, and then the Catering College in Opatija. He gathered experience sailing on ships around the world, after which he returned to Murter and brought with him the first ever coffee machine on the island. In 1971, he opened the café Tic Tac. The café quickly became a popular (and only) place for a night out on the island, and a year later it became a restaurant, one of the oldest in the town of Murter. Tic Tac soon became known as an excellent restaurant. We have always been a role model in innovation and quality. Many restaurant owners in Murter began their careers in Tic Tac, so it can be said that Slobo had an essential influence on the gastronomic presentation of the island.
During the war, the business was slow like everywhere else; we had a pizzeria at the time and were making our own pasta. In the late nineties, we were the first to start experimenting with raw seafood dishes, with a Dalmatian touch - something that was almost inconceivable at the time on our side of the Adriatic, and that made Tic Tac widely known.
Tic Tac has been included in many international magazines and guides; we are also featured in the book Gustoza Đita by Radovan Marčić and Braslav Karlić, where we were awarded with the title natkogo - the title awarded only to distinguished restaurants.
