“Our best meal in Cavtat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

So after our rookie mistake of going to Leut for our first lunch in Cavtat, our landlady gave us her favorite recommendation of Konoba Kolona. It is not on the water, but it was vastly better than the pricier waterfront tourist traps. I had a marvelous fresh meal of mixed greens and arugula salad with tasty tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, and I asked for and they gave me a slab of fresh feta to go on top. Then I had a whole grilled sea bream with grilled zucchini, eggplant, and red and yellow peppers. So good! So healthy!
We dined on the shaded terrace; it was lovely. The music was great until it wasn't. For over 5 minutes, we were subjected to loud rapid Croatian talk radio interspersed with static, until I had to open the kitchen door and ask for music once again! Then all was good again!

“Fish and good wine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Both fish dishes were plentiful and well cooked. The waiter was very helpful in helping us to select wine and true to his word it was a lovely wine. Not a lot of atmosphere but it was a quiet night.

“Mediocre is being kind!!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

After reading the other reviews we had high hopes, but sadly we were disappointed, the starters were ok but by the time our main courses arrived we were expecting something special, we didn't!! My fish stew was not hot, my husbands monkfish parissienne was a poor English mans fish n chips, why would u put monkfish in a soggy batter, I guess the parisienne but was the garlic mayonnaise, and my daughters seafood tagliatelle consisted of a lot if pasta with one prawn one clam and a crabs leg with nothing in it. As for the service, the staff looked like they wanted to be somewhere else, we were really looking forward to this one but were sadly disappointed.

“Poor Service ruined an OK meal”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 14, 2012

Firstly, after reading other reviews, I think the poor service we received may have been an exception, but none the less we were not impressed with this restaurant and would not go back.
When we arrived we could see they were busy but the waiter said they would have a table for us in 2 minutes which they did. Unfortunately from there on it went down hill. We were given menus but not asked if we would like a drink first and they did not come back to us for another 15 mins. The staff seemed hurried & surly. The food was ok but we were not asked if we would like anything else, including drinks or dessert. All in all we felt like we were a nuisance, not paying customers, if they were too busy to give us proper service they should have told us they were full.
