Outstanding food

Kantun offered undoubtedly the best food we experienced in Croatia. The cuttlefish beignet (as part of a small platter with a dalmatian ham beignet) were one of the most delicious pieces of food I have ever eaten (and could sit happily on any Michellin star menu). The mains were similarly... read more

We dined here a couple of times during our stay in vis ... Food is faultless and so is the service. Loved the open flame grill which they used to cook the seafood .

We've had a great night at Kantun. It was end of season so not all options on the menu were available. Staff advised us very well on the options they did have available. I had some special diet requirements but this was no problem at all. We enjoyed a selection of gurnard and amberjack very much! It's all grilled on... More

have been in vis so far for 5 days. Have eaten out in a mixture of bistros and restaurants around vis and the island. Final night out was a trip to kantun. Had tried a couple of days ago, but they refused to take us as although they had tables outside and in a courtyard, they felt that the deteriorating... More

Great wine and good food. Waiters were good but the service was a bit slow as they were busy. However the bread and starter kept us going while we waited for our main.

One dinner wasn't enough. We had to go back. Of the four restaurants we tried, this was by far the best food, service and location.

Excellent restaurant with fabulous fresh seafood done on the grill. We had scampi and John Dory with grilled veg and these yummy crispy/puffy (fried?) potatoes - all perfectly cooked. Delicious brownie-like chocolate cake and grappa to finish. Fantastic local wine recommendations. View out over the bay and watching people fishing off the promenade was lovely (we had an outside table).... More

After taking a few moments to warm to the waiters dry sense of humour, we got on with ordering his recommendations. The local cheese and dried fish starter was certainly distinctive, as was the local red wine (much more powerful in flavour than some I've had). The risotto was nice, but maybe could have done with a greater variety of... More
