“good fresh fish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

The owners of the apartment we were renting said is the best place to have fish or seafood and they were so right. The restaurant is not easy to find because it is tucked in the walls of the old town. the service was great and the food was really really tasty and well cooked. Its quite expensive when you look on the menu but you pay for the quality and its worth it. We would love to come back there again ;)

“Special, romantic and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012

You could almost miss this restaurant if you weren't looking but then your trip would be significantly less awesome! The food is delicious, prices reasonable, ambience feels like you are in a secret garden on the sea shore, and our waiter was hilarious and kind. Plus they hook it up with a yummy tuna appetizer and an end of meal glass of brandy for free!

“A lovely surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2012

We'd tried a number of the other restaurants in Korcula Old Town and were getting disappointed by the prices and the quality of the food was were very pleasantly surprised when we found the Kanavelic when we took shelter in their lovely courtyard from the strong wind outside. The food was excellent in good sized portions, the service & ambiance wonderful, and the price was cheaper the the other lower quality restaurants in the Old Town. Brilliant!

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2011

The staff are very friendly and welcoming, and their experience with hospitality is expressed in their broad knowledge of languages amongst the diners. The seating area inside and out has a nice atmosphere and nicely lit. The wine was well recommended and considering the prices of other restaurants we were surprised it was the same as other not so good places. The complimentary digestif was given in generous proportions.

“Excellent : we would have gone straight back again if we could”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

We really enjoyed our meal at the Kanavelic. We ate inside as there was a bit of a strong wind blowing, and the atmosphere was classy but comfortable; it seemed a cut above the long lines of restaurants on the main sea wall, but the price was surprisingly affordable. The food was excellent (it's a fish restaurant above all so try the octopus or the Dalmatian stuffed squid!). The waiter was friendly and attentive, and rounded off the evening by bringing us a couple of brandies on the house. If we had not been leaving the next day, we would have gone straight back for another meal there.
