Expert review of Konoba Marinero

An informal eatery serving the best fresh fish and seafood in Korčula’s old town.

With unassuming wooden tables and benches lining the steps in a narrow stone alley in the medieval old town, Marinero offers discreet dining which will satisfy even the most capricious foodies. It’s run by two fishermen brothers who have their own boats, so everything on offer is guaranteed to be fresh that day.

Food and drink: 

The menu features traditional Dalmatian fare, with an emphasis on seafood. You might start with a platter of homemade sheep’s cheese and fresh figs, followed by either škampi na buzara (shrimps cooked in olive oil, garlic, white wine and parsley) or jastog sa špagetima (lobster with spaghetti). They serve a decent house wine by the carafe, and also have a selection of incredibly sophisticated local bottled wines.

Recommended dishes: 

Ask your waiter to show you what fresh fish they have on offer that day. Whatever you choose will be cooked simply, just as it should be, and served with olive oil and a wedge of lemon.
 

Ambience: 

The atmosphere is relaxed and informal. This is a low profile venue where you can eat like a king - it's far less touristy than most of the other restaurants in the old town.

Service: 

The waiters are friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating.

Location: 

In a narrow side alley in the old town, it's just a five-minute walk from the Lesic Dimitri Palace

Price advice: 

If you order fresh fish, depending on the weight, you’ll be paying in the region of 500 kuna for two people, with wine.
