About
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.

Food was perfect, probably the best shells I have ever eaten. Waiter was very kind and helpful. Prices are good when you compare them with the service and taste.

We booked in advance and joined the crowds for lunch at this wonderful restaurant. We tried the oysters, the black risotto and a seafood platter. Everything was excellent including the homemade desserts.

The best black risotto you will eat on the Adriatic coast. Fresh and local food. Staff helpful and friendly. Pleasant ambience. Must try myrtle liqueur as aperitif. Excellent!

We stopped by Mali Ston for a most excellent lunch enroute from Korcula to Dubrovnik. We heard a rumor that this was the place for fresh seafood… The waiter brought us complimentary fish pate in a large sea shell we knew we were in the...right spot. I ordered spaghetti with mussels in a white sauce… It was wonderful and could have fed three people. I wanted to finish it but there was absolutely no chance.More

on a day out from Dubrvin this restaurant was the obvious choice with views of the harbour. Helpful attentive staff all spoke good English -and even assisted with change for parking! Dropped in first for a lemonade (fresh squeezed and good) then came back for...early dinner before return. After ordering we were ffered a complementary hors d'oeuvre - crab pate with prawn and caviar - really nice gesture. Fried oysters were delicious and the seabream cooked well - accompaniments were not overcooked and all went well together. Rose wine and croatian beer were good too.More

Being great lovers of sea food we try to hit it to Kapetanova kuća several times a year. But our February experience was surprisingly unpleasant: the portions were tiny, much smaller than usual, and the prices have become extremely high. 5 tiny grilled squids served...with 3 small pieces of vegetables... We left hungry! It's winter time, we get that, we are also aware of the fact that prices are getting higher everywhere but do not make fools of your customers, it's embarrassing.More

After walking the wall from Ston, we happened upon this restaurant and had a great lunch. Highly recommend the oysters, squid ink risotto and the mussel dish. Waiter was very nice and made great recommendations. One of the best meals we had during our trip.

This has long been one of the top recommended restaurants in Croatia. It is, perhaps, traditional in its cooking and some might say old fashioned, but everything they do well. Helpful staff, too.

20 years ago we were on our way to the Korcula Island. Out of curiosity, we made a turn to Mali Ston and never made it to Korcula. We spent 4 hours eating oysters and seafood in Kapetanova Kuca. 20 years later we visited this...restaurant again and wanted to replicate that special afternoon . It worked. The restaurant is now bigger, busier but the food is as delicious as in the past as well as the service. We will be back - hopefully earlier than in 20 years!More

Everything was perfect. Food service and ambiance. The only thing, maybe, that should be noted is that it is not one of the cheaper restaurants but the portions are huge (for two) and extremely high quality and finely made I definitely recommend the black risotto...captain's houseMore

We parked somewhere in front of the restaurant. I don't think we have to pay for parking.

Mid-range U.S. Pricing, not inexpensive. Worth the price. About 45 min driving to Dubrovnik.
