Charming little restaurant, lovely food and very good value. Family run. Ask for the wine they make themselves - delicious. Garden courtyard had a nice atmosphere. Oysters were huge, so fresh and best yet in Croatia. Definitely worthy of another visit.

This dinner may have been the best meal we had in Croatia and we did not have a bad meal all week. We began with Mussels Buzaru - fresh mussels steamed in wine, olive oil, salt, garlic and parsley. Simple but absolutely delicious! This was followed by grilled squid and grilled fish, accompanied by potatoes in olive oil, zucchini, and local steamed greens. Both squid and fish grilled with nothing more than olive oil and salt. Once again, simlple but delicious! All this along with the house red wine. Talking to the waitress, who was also the owner's daughter, we found out the mussels were harvested by her grandfather, the fish caught that day, the vegetables from the family garden, and the wine from the family vineyard. Can it get any better than this? Don't miss out on dinner here!

We were excited to visit Ston having heard about the local oysters and did so on our drive from Split to Dubrovnik. We read about the restaurant in the Lonely Planet guide and it turned out to be a real holiday highlight. We couldn't visit without trying the oysters and a plate we shared was simple, delicious and fresh. For main course we both ordered mussels and french fries. The waitress brought us a HUGE mound of beautiful mussels to share, cooked simply with garlic, parsley and parmesan - delicious, we mopped up the sauce with copious amounts of bread. The courtyard was a perfect spot to enjoy lunch and take in the smells from the outdoor grill.
Very reasonably priced and generous portions - it's definitely worth a visit.

Last time we passed by the Adriatic coast we came here for shrimp and oysters. They were great.

Now, two years and two months later...we came by for a follow-up visit.

They were just as awesome this time. Super fresh and flavorful seafood.

Highly recommended.

With the warm and friendly atmosphere, and any drink you desire, I recommend trying the local Mussels Bouzara in the garden seating area. The pizza is also excellent.
