“Service from nightmare, though good food”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2011

The food we ordered was rather good especially raviolli with goat cheese and lavanda however we were extremely dissapointed with the waiter attitude and service alltogether. The waiter was extremely slow, too relaxed in speech (not to mention he used some inappropriate words !), never asked us how we want our steak to be done , he even gossiped about the restaurant owners ..:((...The second dish was supposed to be meat plate - they served us completely rare steak( the blood was running..), after which we complained but the answer was sth like " Next time dont order meat but pasta !" ?????!!!! Anyway, we asked for the bill immediately after that and left disappointed and offended....

“Excellent food and ambience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2011

Excellent food - service was rather slow though. Two dishes weren't available on the menu which was a bit weird as menu was not large, but the food was of a high standard. Would have liked to have tried the veal though

“Amazing home cooking in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2011

We came to konoba Mate a lunchtime and almost as an afterthought but it made our day. Lovely relaxing setting. Travarica to drink on arrival. Great starter plate of aubergine, prsut, and cheeses. We all really enjoyed the diverse main courses and the table wine was really good too. Attentive waiter and great food. We will be sure to return.

“hotel california: you can check-out but you dont want to leave!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2011

Family owned business run by people who love food and art. Once you get there you feel as part of family. Food is prepared deliciously, atmosphere is calming with good music and vibrations. And what is the most important you get good value for money!

“wonderful food, great hosts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2010

We learned about this restaurant from its younger owner, Mate, who is also at the Pupnatska Luka beach during daytime. We had dinner there twice last week and greatly enjoyed both the food and the very friendly owners and waiters. Ask about how they make their own prosciutto.
