“Food from past”
Reviewed September 8, 2013 via mobile

Like the place very much...I stop by each time I pass through Makarska.
Recepies used from past, so you eat the food of like our grand-grand parents did.
The service could be faster and more polite, but it's summer...so I don't mind :)

“Cheap, but tourist trap”
Reviewed August 13, 2013 via mobile

As a local, and a serious gourmand, I'm well familiar with local (dalmatian) cousine. Konoba Kalelarga offers affordable prices, however:

- bruschette with prosciutto were in fact served with regular bacon, covered by cheese. Furthermore, bruschette should be grilled, while these were warmed-up in microwave.
- as we decided to eat wild fish, waiter brought out few raw specimen to choose from. We decided for a certain Arbun (kind of fish), which seemed fresh. 15 minutes later, we realised that the same fish was brought out again to other guests! Who knows what did they serve to us?!?
- Furthermore, Croatia is well known for it's olive oils. What they serve in Kalelarga, has norhing to do with olives.
- Staff is friendly, however, the service is slow.

In conclusion, if you are interested in a decent meal, and ready to pay a bit more, choose another place.
