“Oysters and Mussels”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 22, 2013

I'm not a fan of oysters but the owner is very proud of these local bivalves and went to great lengths to make sure everyone knew how to enjoy them raw! I didn't want to offend so sucked down one and borrowed a few shells from my table mates. We sat in aluminum lawn furniture out back in an area with a live fish well , not very clean and a little un appealing to look at . But the overall atmosphere was fun!

“An average coach tour restaurant”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2013

Our tour guide called this restaurant very good; we found it to be a typical coach tour restaurant. The staff was not particularly friendly, perhaps because it was late in the afternoon; and the food was nothing special.

“Nice restaurant in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2013

We were a group of 10 who had a late lunch here on a day trip from Cavtat. The restaurant was almost empty. It seems to be geared mainly for bus groups and I'm not sure I'd like it if it was full, but we really enjoyed our meal.
The food was fairly standard Croatian fare, prepared well and served nicely. We shared a few oysters to begin and then had a mix of set menus and extra dishes.

“better then expected”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2013

I am a great oysters fan, and mali Ston is the place to eat them because they are grown all around. I always go to Mali Ston, and have been to two other restaurants there Bota Šare nad kapetanova kuća which serve them as well. They have open terraces, Villa Koruna does not, this is whywe went there before.
This time we chose Vila Koruna and were pleasently surprised. The restaurant was not crowded
Service was all right, and the food was delicious. If you love oysters and seafood, this is the right place. We enjoyed oysters and shrimps and drank good wine. Ath the end of the meal we got a kg of SALT for which Ston is famous. I know the salt as I buy it in Dubrovnik and use it wwhole year through. It is the best salt in Croatia. Next summer I will come to Vila Koruna again, and I hope they will keep the standard. Unfortunately alot of restaurants are excellent one year and terrible the next year. (Like Obala in Lopud).

“Interesting place”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We came with our children and got a great choice of seafood. The restaurant has fish tanks in a big dining hall overlooking the bay. Don't try the sae eggs, they are truly awful. Otherwise the fish was well prepared and obviously fresh. However, the service was lacklustre with staff as interested and friendly as dinner ladies.
