Food and drink
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.
