Description: The "Kapetanova kuca" restaurant is situated on the most attractive location on the Mali Ston waterfront. The name was derived and chosen as such due to the fact that it was the centre and dwelling place of the Mali Ston Guard Captain. The "Kapetanova kuca" was opened on 1 September 1986 and back then it was a family tavern. It is owned by Kralj family, one of the oldest families in Mali Ston. The restaurant offers specialties of the Mali Ston Bay exclusively, and includes a large winery of Peljesac wines.

“Great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012 via mobile

Ill start with the end - it was the place we loved most in Croatia among the testaurants.
We dont like sea food, so i cant say nothing about that, we ate meat and it was great.
The atmosphere was really pleasant and our waiter was really polite and welcoming.
It was a lil pricey, but was well worth it.

“Amazing Seafood Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Top class service in lively surroundings on the waters edge. Fantastic menu of fresh seafood and of course shellfish which Mali Ston is famous for. The house wind was excellent and our group said the walk from Ston was well worth it. We felt very special there and I certainly hope to visit again next year when sailing in Croatia

“Worth visiting - great oysters and seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This place was recommended by the hotel so we drove ca. 30km to Mali Ston to try it and were not disappointed. Great seafood, good and attentive service. One of the better restaurants I have tried in Croatia. if i am in the area i will definitely go back.

“Oysters and Mussels Yes but Service Poor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012 via mobile

Now the shell fish we had were fantastic but our server thought he was doing us a favour judging by his attitude! But I have noticed this surliness in a good few places on this trip. Shame as Food was great and a wonderful setting we would go back for the quality of the oysters and mussels grown in the bay right next to the restaurant!
