Eric Clapton Enjoys Gariful Delicacies in Monte Carlo

By Ivana Vrselja May 26, 2012 Blog

Gariful owner Ivan Gospodnetic is in Monte Carlo for the Monaco Grand Prix as a guest of one of his restaurant clients. It is an opportunity to promote the island’s luxury side with the world’s elite and, accompanied by Mayor Pjerino Bebic, Ivan has been mingling with some big names indeed, including regular Hvar visitor Bernie Ecclestone, and Eric Clapton. Ivan had a few words to say:

“I am very pleased that today’s meeting left a mark on world star Eric Clapton, because during dinner on the boat, Gariful cheese was served, along with my olives and olive oil.

I am delighted that the warmth of Hvar and my restaurant was felt in Monte Carlo.

I hope that he will take up the invitation from myself and Pjerino Bebic, and I thank Bernie Ecclestone for all the superlatives he spoke about our island of Hvar.

I have been in hospitality for many years and I have travelled a lot, but tonight I am very proud to be a Hvar man in Monte Carlo.”
