Konoba Mate

• Affordable prices and great house wine Posip. For the main course we ordered pasta with prawns and tuna steak. Pasta is homemade and very tasty but the sauce was not spectacular, too blank and missing some traditional Dalmatian spices. Tuna steak dried up, grilled too much and not served medium rare as it should be. Although the ambience is relaxed I do not expect that the waitress should be repeatedly reminded of the ordered items and that the main course is served without cutlery. Poor service without smile and untipication of client needs. Apart from the food itself, there are many details that can be worked on, such as serving / asking if olive oil and some extra spices are needed along with meals, if you charge for the bread then needs to be fresh. Pay attention to the quality of service as this can seriously affect the overall impression. Success also carries great responsibility as guests come with high expectations. Good luck!

Pizzeria Torkul

Reviewed By Pathfinder372680

Made reservations from u.s. on a tour but with free tim told waitress we had reservations which she grudgingly acknowledged. Gave us a table link the narrow alleyway where you could barely have room enough to allow people to pass. 20 minutes later we got a disgusting greasy menu and waited another 15 minutes to order a glass of wine. She was so unpleasant and grouchy we left and went somewhere else, because just before we left she dropped a tray and spilled it over another customer, broken glass and all. Too many other choices. Save your money.

Ate here after seeing the reviews and it didn’t disappoint.....fried cheese was superb and stuffed squid very tasty....also the fresh grilled fish was the best so far in Croatia. Service was excellent and friendly - considering it was busy. Situated in one of the sweet stepped alleyways that characterize this town. Going back again and I know what I’m having....fried cheese and one of their steaks I saw going out a couple of days ago!Dear Guest,We are very glad that you have recognized our effort, desire and knowledge. Thank You for taking your time to write such a good comment, we appreciate it very much.Konoba Marco Polo team

CLOSED FOR WINTER. Delicious food made from fresh, local ingredients. Vegetarian-friendly; vegetables and fish are the base of the menu, along with traditional pasta - makaruni and homemade bread. Excellent local wines are also important part of our story

We were not able to book this restaurant, but we were lucky to still be accommodated. What a great find this restaurant was! Amazing fish/seafood and paste and an awesome selection of wines. The cherry on the top is its atmospheric location.

I ate hear on a "Taste of Korcula" tour with Korcula Explorer and I can really see why they take people here. Every mouthful of every dish we got to try was fantastic. Octopus salad, Local pasta with meat sauce, calamari, cuttlefish and a few more. Also there home made wine was just right. Will be going back.

If you are into food you will love LD! We went for the chef’s 5 course taster menu with wine. Every single dish was stunning with each dish memorable for the fantastic flavours - and all cooked to perfection. The wine choices suited the dishes perfectly - Croatian wine is definitely on a par with French wine. The service was superb - we were treated as though we were special. Can’t recommend this highly enough!Dear jandt412. Thank you for sharing your experience in LD Restaurant with us. We are very happy you enjoyed :)

A huge mixed grill was ok, and the starter of dates in ham (what we might call kilted camels) very good. Main plus points were much more reasonable prices than other venues in town, good service from charming staff, and the on "street" location of our table. Very atmospheric.

An optional excursion as part of our Croatia tour. Loved the home-grown figs and hearing about the family's experiences leading up to the establishment of this place. Our meal was rather disappointing though. Grilled eggplant, salad and bread were great, but the potatoes were far too salty for us (and we love our potatoes!) maybe give diners the option of adding their own salt, if needed? The veggie soup was very runny (not much evidence of vegetables!) and very peppery. Our tuna steak was ok, but definitely not rare, as requested. We still enjoyed our evening though, as our group was great and the unlimited wine and beer was very good. Loved the fig stuffed with almond and coated in dark chocolate but only one per person! Recommended.HalloMy dear lady it was nice to have you in my restorant . First of all when you have menu choices the meat menu have meat soup a d the fish menu have fish soup . Our vegetable Cream soup is home Made vegetableSoup and we dont put pepr inside of the soup becouse we put lots of vegetables and the strong tašte is becouse of home Made eggplant and you could not see the vegetables becouse it is mixed ( Cream ) soup . Furder our potatoes Are home Made grown where we add home Made dry vegetables And home Made red paprika who give the strong flevour and taste . Also If you hade tuna for all the group the tuna was the same becouse the guide have to tell me that you nead rear tuna ( or you ) and how can i make it rear when nobody told me . On the End of the menu you get home Made sweet pasta called Hrstule and one Chocolate fig and your guide knows that and he hed to tell you that . Also you have 2 drinks per person but you did drink unlimited Like you did write ? Why then you didn’t ask for more Chocolate figs ? Why you didn’t ask me to change your soup ? Why you didn’t ask me for a nother side dish? Why you didn’t come on barbeque and tell me to make your tuna rear ? No you didn’t , but when i orMy father or my waiters came and ask is all ok Everybody sed yes yes superrrrrrrrrrrrrr . Why didn’t you tell me this when you where in my restorant ? No you came home and you decided to destroy my life and my family also . Now If i lose the optional becouse of you ? What then ?

Reviewed By Conjured

I was not expecting much, seeing that it looks like a small cafe and not a full-on restaurant. Furthermore, we arrived in low-season, and the many of the restaurants were either closed or not selling anymore food.We were the only customers when we arrived, and the chef was sitting at the outside seating area having a drink.When we asked if food is available, he proceeded to explain what ingredients he has left, and what he can cook up for us.We took several of his suggestions - -Carbonora macaroni-Seafood risotto-Chicken Salad-CalamariAnd i will not hesitate to say that his meal was one of the best we have had in Croatia so far. We just couldn't believe our luck! Before leaving, he asked us to leave a review on Tripadvisor for him, but i would have done so in any case.The price was more than affordable, and we were so glad that we chanced upon this inconspicuous gem!

Reviewed By rosh211

A single waiter served everyone with great expertise. He explained the specials, knew the food inside out, made friendly conversation and all without leaving anyone waiting for a second longer than necessary. The food was exceptional - tasty and inventive. My husband had seafood cooked in a paper bag tied with string. The chef can really cook and focuses on what’s been landed or is seasonal. We had the house wine which was also very good. We weren’t going to bother with pudding but we were asked to ‘hold on, while I bring you something’ - it turned out to be a piece of chocolate cake - light & moist - topped with ganache and homemade crystallised orange peel. No extra charge was made for this and the overall bill was extremely reasonable We enjoyed the whole experience so much we’re going back tonight so that’s the biggest recommendation you can give.
