I read about Konoba Menego in a magazine and decided to try, since it was lunchtime and we're on our walk up to the fort. We were seated at the tavern, decorated with antiques, which makes a good conversation piece while waiting for our food to be served. Whilst we were provided with menu, the waiter did asked if we wished to have them recommend dishes for our group and we decided to trust his recommendations instead (it was meant to be a surprise). And we're so glad we did :-)
We were treated with a good mix of dishes, started off with marinated fish, stuffed peppers and Dalmatia stuffed bread each different in flavours and textures, but all delicious.
The chef's secret (chicken dish) was surprising good, tender juicy meat soaked in thick sauce. We enjoyed the sauce so much that we even mopped it up with bread.
The gnocchi with artichokes while tasted pretty decent, was less popular among us.
For me, the piece de resistance was the Menego plate, a generous plate of Dalmation smoked ham (made by the owner), Dalmatian bacon, sheep cheese, goat cheese, lots of olives, capers, peppers, greens which was superb.
Overall a very good meal, I felt everything was prepared with care and the cook (and even the waiters) take pride in the food served there. Although the price is slightly higher, but it's worth the value.
