Description: You can find restaurant Bota Sare, Mali Ston in narrow center waterfront, situated within old castle.Wide palette of oysters, fish, shellfish are prepared as per original local recipes that bring finger licking food to your table (ask for gradele, popara, buzara, brudet…). Do not miss to try local risotto, black risotto, and homemade bread from natural fire heated oven…We also invite you to take a boat trip to see Ston's bay and to visit the place where the Sare family is growing shellfish close to the island Banje that is owned by family Sare and family Matkovic. On Banje island there is a large number of various Mediterranean herbs and over 200 olive trees which provide the olive oil for Bota restaurants. The experience of visiting the island will be improved by the programme of offering “the guest to choose alone“.

Unfortunately, our waiter had no interest in us. He barely answered our questions and could hardly be bothered to take our order or bring it to us. If you want to sit... More

The first restaurant we walked into (next to the car park) was devoid of character and seemed to cater for bus loads of tourists judging by the looong tables. However, it was... More
