Kapetanova kuca

Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Food and ambience

The "Kapetanova kuca" restaurant is situated on the most attractive location on the Mali Ston waterfront. The name was derived and chosen as such due to the fact that it was the centre and dwelling place of the Mali Ston Guard Captain. The "Kapetanova kuca" was opened on 1 September 1986 and back then it was a family tavern. It is owned by Kralj family, one of the oldest families in Mali Ston. The restaurant offers specialties of the Mali Ston Bay exclusively, and includes a large winery of Peljesac wines.

The waiter gave detailed explanations about the food and accepted modifications to the menu. We were 2 couples and all tasted all the dishes served. All were very good. I recommend the oysters (raw of course), black seafood risotto, seafood pasta, and the grilled fish.
