Being a very popular place during the high season, we had to make a reservation a few days in advance, so if you wish just to drop by, you should do so after 22 in the evening (the place is open until 23).
Grilled lamb with vegetables was great, but pasticada (local Dalmatian dish - a large chunk of meat cooked with vegetables) was barely eatable - it seems the cook was more concerned with the presentation (round with a carrot in the middle), than with the texture and taste.
A nice touch was the local brandy served at the beginning and left on the table during the entire meal, but no apéritif has been offered to us, regardless of being announced by the waiter at the beginning. Nevertheless, with extremely tasty home-made cakes we did not miss them much.

About 10 years ago I worked for some time on Korcula and was introduced to this small family restaurant. At that time it was my favorite and the good news was that last week I was back for a few days and had dinner at Mate. It has gotten better. The food is still excellent and special and their choice of wines has improved. Most important is the feeling to really be a guest of the family. If you are a few days on the Island it is a must. I would also like to check out the new funky bar of their sun Mate in Punpnatska Luka. The best secret/hidden bay of the island. Next time!

Come and join a fantastic family run business for a wonderful rustic authentic Croatian feast. From homemade pasta through to cured meat and the best desserts. From the moment we arrived it felt like we were having dinner with our own family. If you are in Korchula this is a must!!!!

hmm, this place is definitely of the beaten track but really lovely. We had delicious pasta- the house speciality was gorgeous it was pasta with what we think was goat and it was some of the best pasta we have ever tasted! the ravioli with goats cheese was also yummy. For starters we had a mixed platter of goats cheese/ham/aubergine and figs and it was all absolutely beautiful. We also had a half litre of local wine, 2 coffees and bread. All for 277 kuna!! (35 pound). Would definitely reccomend. There is also a tiny wine shop down the road with an old company that don't speak a word of english but happy for you to taste the wines/grappa. the desert wine was excellent and we also bought a litre of the red for 25 kuna. Pupnat itself is tiny but the restaurant makes it worth the trip. We went on a cloudy day and really glad we did as was a fantastic meal.
