We had one of the best meals in Croatia at this modest family owned and operated restaurant. Phenomenal meatballs with house made pasta and the white chocolate herb mousse dessert are amazing. Don't miss this stop if you're nearby.

We visited the tiny visit of Pupnat and stopped in at this Konoba for lunch while we were there. The place is set up very well for English speakers and serves a great range of dishes, including various forms of home-made pasta, lamb stew and kid peka (the peka needs to be ordered in advancve). The food is particularly well... More

We had dinner in their charming patio in July. The food was extraordinary. Service was so nice. They arranged a cab so we could go back to Korcula town after dinner and it wasn't expensive. Congratulations for a wonderful job. I hope I can go back sometime!

Absolutelly a must place to go due to it's excellent, home made cooking as well as the best home made pralinas...a place where you feel like home and you don't want to leave...where family members every time make you feel special...where your dog is welcome too. And much more....

After any trips to Italy, I experienced the best pasta ever at this restaurant. Following a wonderful collection of antipasto (or whatever the right word is in Croatian), I had a fabulous almond pesto pasta. And I wasn't the only one in our group who was very happy with their lunch, sitting outside, waving away the occasional wasp and looking... More

I had lunch here today in the middle of a long bike ride including the substantial uphill from the coast to Pupnat. So I was ready for some food. What I didn't expect was just how good it would be. Gorgeous olives, pasta with fennel and the kind of tomato salad that you just don't seem to get anywhere else.... More

This was by far my wife's favorite place- fresh local ingredients prepared perfectly and at a reasonable price- would be coming here every week were it not thousands of miles from home!!! Easy choice for us - great place. Be aware however that they only accept cash....

Konoba Mate is the excelent choice if you want to taste genuine local food on Korčula (or Croatia in general). It is run by a lovely and friendly family - they produce, cook and serve their own food.

We went there after reading so many positive reviews but this place is not that excellent. First, when we came in nobody spoke a word in English and we were given a menu in Croatian. Then a lady approached us who spoke English and finally explained us what is what. The meals were fine (lamb and shrimps pasta), but for... More
