Been there last summer with couple of friends, and was surprized. All fresh, traditional way of preparing dishes, everything was homemade, starting with bread, liqueurs, wine, etc. If this restaurant was situated in, let's say Dubrovnik, it sureli would have been in top 5 on TA... You are doing an amazing job.

There is a story about this review. The Narona Archaeological Museum has a Roman temple – the Augusteum which was found in 1996, and is 50 metres from the restaurant. The restaurant sits on the banks of the river delta. The restaurant is called Duda & Mate locally. Large car park. Good selection of local wines and the fish and... More

It's not a main road stop, and you wouldn't come here, if not recommended to you. Try the frogs fried with Dalmatian bacon, and the eel, fried, delicious, I never had it this way before. And in addition, you are sitting on the terrace at the water, in among the reed of the Neretva delta, and the frogs and eel... More

Visited this venue several times, and always felt welcomed. The restaurant is located on the bank of the Norin river, which is the main source for the fish served at the premises. All other ingredients are grown within few miles from the restaurant. They also provide lodging as well as the boat trips on the river. Food is well prepared... More

Reading this reviews we decided to go to the restaurant. They are specialists in frogs and eals. We asked waiter for recommendations. There wasn't many people, only 3 tables occupied but we had to wait for 25 minutes for our meals. Eals from grill have been the worst we ever tried. Have they been from grill at all? Why so... More

Visited it today with my sister and her kid. A eight year old rated this restaurant with clear 10 out of 10 max! Awesome Dalmatian food (super fresh seafood of all kinds), meat, specialties like eel (in variety of ways) and frog legs (also in variety of ways), all that grilled (real wood), fried or a la 'parisienne', with excellent...

We were on our way back from Dubrovnik and stopped here for a late lunch. As we were told we ordered the traditional meals. First, we took some fried frogs and those were very good. After that we ordered "brudet" which is a traditions stew made from eels and frogs. This was one great experience and if you want to... More
