We've had a great night at Kantun.

It was end of season so not all options on the menu were available. Staff advised us very well on the options they did have available. I had some special diet requirements but this was no problem at all. We enjoyed a selection of gurnard and amberjack very much!

It's all grilled on open fire in the eating room so lovely smells.

Lots of candle light and big glasses of wine. Perfect place for a romantic dinner.

have been in vis so far for 5 days. Have eaten out in a mixture of bistros and restaurants around vis and the island. Final night out was a trip to kantun. Had tried a couple of days ago, but they refused to take us as although they had tables outside and in a courtyard, they felt that the deteriorating weather conditions would mean a poor meal experience. Coming from scotland, mediterranean poor weather is a subjective issue. However, anybody who can turn people away because they dont feel that they will get a 100% good experience is doing something right. I was intrigued....
Finally made it tonight. The waiter recognised us from two nights previously. We were instantly made at home, and presented with fresh pate and garlic bread while we digested the menu.
Starters were fish soup, fish platter, cheese platter and cold meat platter. Everything ok, no complaints.
Mains were risotto, beef in red wine and lamb chops. Winners were the beef in red wine served with gnocchi, and the mountain of lamb chops. If i never eat lamb chops again, i will die happy knowing i had some very beautiful meat at kanton.
We were aided with a good choice of wines by the waiter as we always try and drink local.
Overall......atmosphere excellent
Staff excellent
Food excellent
Cost excellent (£100 4x people, starters, mains,desserts ,
Coffee, 2 bts wine plus liquors)...can't spend
money in there.
Not veggie friendly....

Have eaten at the other places in the top 3 or 4 on tripadvisor. It is difficult to judge a restaurant from a bistro because these are two completely separate categories. This was the best overall meal we had in town..bravo

Great wine and good food. Waiters were good but the service was a bit slow as they were busy. However the bread and starter kept us going while we waited for our main.

One dinner wasn't enough. We had to go back. Of the four restaurants we tried, this was by far the best food, service and location.
