Expert review of Adio Mare
Since it opened in 1974, little has changed at Adio Mare - even the menu has remained the same, featuring the sort of hearty Dalmatian dishes that locals would eat at home. It has however been listed in most of the ‘Croatia’ guidebooks, so today it’s extremely popular with tourists. And it now opens for lunch as well as dinner, so you have more of a chance of getting a table.
The menu includes local favourites such as dagnje na buzaru (mussels cooked in olive oil, garlic, white wine and parsley), pašta-fažol (beans and pasta), brodet (fish stew served with polenta) and pašticada (beef stewed in sweet wine and prunes, served with gnocchi), as well as barbecued meat and fish.
I had the brodet and loved it, accompanied by the excellent local white wine, Pošip.
The dining room has exposed stonewalls, a flagstone floor and an open-plan kitchen, so you can watch the cooks at work, which is part of the fun. Guests sit at long wooden tables and benches - if you come alone or as a couple you may well be asked to share a table with other patrons. The atmosphere is informal and friendly.
The waiters are welcoming and professional, though they do aim for a speedy turnover during high season.
Close to the Marco Polo House, behind the main square and the cathedral in Korčula’s pedestrian-only old town.
For a generous meal for two, with house wine, you’ll pay around 400 kuna.
