Here are just a few suggestions for Korcula restaurants to get your creative juices flowing.
The stunning location in the Korcula hills can only be matched by the incredible food at this family-run restaurant. Opened in 2003 by Ivan and Jakša’s parents, the brothers now run the place, and what a place it is. Their rustic eatery with a modern twist makes full use of the surroundings and much of the ingredients are locally sourced, grown by the brothers or foraged, for a truly authentic feel. Many diners make a pilgrimage here for the ‘Peka’ a traditional Croatian dish made with meat and potatoes, cooked ultra slow to crisp and tender perfection in the fireplace under an iron ‘bell’. As it takes so long, diners are advised to book a day in advance to ensure ‘Peka’ perfection. The cocktails here are also something else, made using local ingredients for that true Korcula experience. Warning – we guarantee that just one will not be enough.
For a truly exceptional hidden gem, you have to get off the beaten track a little to find this family-run tavern which serves the best that Korcula has to offer. Nestled under a canopy of pomegranate trees, this is the perfect setting to try some local dishes, including ‘Peka’, the catch of the day or one of the pasta specialties.
With all the excellent local wine choices, it’s important to make sure you leave some room for the home-made desserts. Like many of the eateries in Korcula, in-spite of many meaty options, the reverence for vegetables means that there are plenty of vegan and vegetarian choices too.
