Refreshingly small menu, good food, and attentive service for a farewell dinner at Kantun.

We bid farewell to Vis with a final dinner at Kantun, and I'm so pleased that we did. The restaurant hit on every level - food, service, and atmosphere. The menu is small, and I would guess that you really can't go wrong with any of the choices (although why you would want anything other than the... read more

Mixed seafood starter platter was incredible. Beef in red wine and grilled squid were wonderful. The best wine we had on Vis was the White wine from Konoba Magic as served here. Complimentary chocolate cake desert. Wonderful attentive service. Great humour from the waiters.

We ate here twice during a one week stay on Vis this year (and twice last year) and on all occasions had a great meal. Forget the menu and put yourself in the hands of the waiter to get the best fish options on the day. The staff are also excellent at making recommendations on the wine (but note they... More

I would definitely recommend Kantun based upon great food, service, and atmosphere. The outdoor dining is right on the waterfront, which is where we opted to sit. The interior space is also beautiful, and you can watch grilled selections prepared to order over a wood fire. All courses were outstanding, including the Pasticada and anything grilled. The service was as... More

The service was wonderful, the food was grilled on a woodfire grill in front of us, and everything tasted GREAT. I was sad that we were not on Vis long enough to go back!

Dropped in jus by accident. A friendly waiter showed the selctions for "fish of the day". We decided to go for scorpion fish, which was grilled and served with grilled vegetables and was served with he recomended local white from LIPANOVIĆ. A tastfull meal and wine! :)

Place came highly recommended both on TripAdvisor and by our hotel. I had the grilled calamari - which was chewy and rubbery; my husband had the grilled lamb which was very fatty and had hardly any meat on the bone. Also, stray cats begging for food during the entire meal! Location is good though - overlooks the water and sail... More

Two nights ago, I was in Vis and searched for a restaurant on Trip Advisor. Choose Kantun since it had very good reviews but, I was a little disappointed. The food was good, actually pretty good but, it is not difficult to prepare a lamb and fish on the grille along some veggies. The wine was excellent but it is... More

We had fish that was caught that morning, and it was delicious. As a side dish we took recommendation from the waiter, that was nothing else then basic chips so this was a minor disappointment, but the meal was still great. Wine was very good, service professional and a nice table outside. Its not cheap, but was worth if you... More

We were seated in a cosy backyard. Had grilled lamb and enjoyed it very much. Also had some steaks. Everything was good.
