Description: The "Kapetanova kuca" restaurant is situated on the most attractive location on the Mali Ston waterfront. The name was derived and chosen as such due to the fact that it was the centre and dwelling place of the Mali Ston Guard Captain. The "Kapetanova kuca" was opened on 1 September 1986 and back then it was a family tavern. It is owned by Kralj family, one of the oldest families in Mali Ston. The restaurant offers specialties of the Mali Ston Bay exclusively, and includes a large winery of Peljesac wines.

Being in Dubrovnik for New Year, we started to look for dinner options on 1 January. Many good places around and in Ston were closed and we decided to go to Kapetanova kuca, after nearly 10 years. What started as lazy rainy evening turned into a rhapsody of taste. Started with pate as greetings from the kitchen, over Kapetanova kuca risotto, oysters which were super fresh and then fresh fish. All food comes with their domestic vegetables and olive oil as well as local wine. This restaurant is in top 100 in Croatia since 1996, and with all right to be there. Chef Lidija Kralj is not tired yet. Everything is topped with very good service and homey Christmas-style atmosphere. I was delighted!

Amazing place in Mali Ston, directly at the harbour. The oysters were incredibly good!
Absolutely recommendable

We visited Ston on a day trip whilst staying in Dubrovnik and stopped here for lunch. We ordered mussels for 3 (as everyone else in the restaurant seemed to be eating them) and an octopus salad. We got a HUGE dish of mussels to share cooked in different ways (onions, garlic, white wine, parmesan, tomatoes) and cooked beautifully.

We ordered one kg of mussels, four oysters, and a grilled octopus for lunch. Also had two glasses of white wine.
The oysters and grilled octopus entree were quite good. The mussels were small in sizes, and a little too salty. But still tasty. The wine was good. The bread spread was excellent. And the the price was amazingly cheap. It costed us less than 55€! The surrounding environments were quite cozy. With the old castle and long wall just behind the restaurant, we had a nice walk after lunch.
Overall, it was a good meal that deserved a detour en route to Dubrovnik. Recommended!!

We stumbled upon this restaurant on the seafront in Mali Ston, feeling hungry on a wet evening in early September. The waiter was very charismatic and helpful... even trying his best to find us accommodation for the night, as everywhere seemed full. And, as you might expect at this location close to oyster and fish farms, the seafood is excellent. I had the simple seafood spaghetti which was fantastic... and it's not expensive. Recommended.
