The grilled chicken and squid was very good. This restaurant is just metres from the sea so the view is relaxing.

"Konoba Busola" is a poor country pub with a lousy food choice, high prices, unpolite staff service, and crude understanding of turistic needs. Recommendation: stay far away from this hole !
