I have chosen this place to finally try fampur Neretva brudet with eels and frogs, and I have chosen proper place for that. The owner was pleased with my choice, he explained me in details the meal. Also he kindly told me that o might...wait the meal. (turned to be 20 min, what is really nothing). While waiting he brought me a slice of good dalmatian prosciutto with tasteful tomatoes and Ston salt. Oh, and fantastic domestic bread under sać. Brudet was good. The only thing that is perhaps negative is that I asked medium to very hotspiced, and it came mild hotspiced. But ok. Aide dish was of course polenta, and it was the star of the meal. Domestic corn flour, maybe even from stone mill, very creamy, wonderful. And again that fantastic bread to eat with the sauce. After the meal I got free fresh local fruits (black grapes, watermelon, figue), and after that more figues which I couldn't eat anymore, but they packed them to go (I ate them later on the beach). I drank wine of the house. It was chardonnay. Not my cup of tea because it was very sweet. The offer of the meals is very local, and they offer very affordable daily menus. My brudet was not cheap though, 180kn + 6kn bread + 24kn 1dl of wine and sparkling water. Daily menues cost cca 40-50kn. Atmosphere is like real konoba, very local, what is great.More

I organized a meeting of about 10 people, including a setup with projector in the back room. Jure and Nada are very gracious hosts and they made sure we set up everything the way we needed for the success of our meeting. That was followed...with the very special delicacies from the Neretva region. Great food, great service. We will definitely be back, not just for business, bu for private dinners as well.More

We made a special detour to Metkovic in search of the specialty, eel brudet. The meal we had was outstanding and well worth having come there. We were served by the owner his recommendation of brudet with eel and frog with pura (polenta) , following...a local recipe of beef soup with thin noodles. Each dish was extremely tasty and the combination worked beautifully, accompanied with local Posip wine. Highly recommended!!!!!More

Due to some travel break I gave this humble and kind place a visit. Hospitality from the lady who is i believe also the owner was amazing, surroundings peaceful and cozy. Food good, i would compare to something my mom would prepare. Prices more than...friendly, i have taken daily menu offer and enjoyed it, plate was empty and food was so good i forgot to take picture. Would recommend even to a family because the terrace is big enough. If im in Metkovic again will visit the place again.More

We stopped by for a late lunch on our way back from the beach. The restaurant is located right by the main road, and is easy to find. The food was excellent, and the waiter was very friendly. The prices are reasonable. I had the...house's white wine, which was good. We will certainly visit again next summer.More
