“beautiful place, but not for vegetarians”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

The setting could not have been more beautiful! Under olive trees, only lighted by lanterns, a playground for children. My husband loved his grilled meat in white wine sauce, but there were no vegetarian options for me. I told the waiter I was vegetarian and he told me he did have fish. I took grilled veggies with fries and added a mushroom sauce to that. Only to find out later that this was based on gravy. Anyway, it's a great restaurant/ location for meat lovers.

“Great meal in an amazing setting under olive trees.”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

How can you not enjoy a restaurant like this that's situated on a hill of olive trees with outdoor eating? Olive oil & olives right from above you?

The meal we had was really good but more importantly at this restaurant was the setting.. Truly UN-matched on the Dalmatian Coast.

Make sure your interested in having meat though as this is truly the focus of this restaurant.. Fish not so much.

Dobar Tek!

“Restaurant with great food and service”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

I can say that this is one of the best restaurants that I have been in.
Food is excellent, atmosphere is special and service is fast, good and inovative. This is a place where you can relax and be yourself.

“Well worth the walk”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Konoba Ranc was recommended to us as the best restaurant in Tucepi, they were not wrong. Set in an olive grove 400m up a steep hill it is worth the walk. We were greeted in very friendly manner and given a table that allowed for a good view of the 'dining room' (which was outside).The menu has a good choice that will cater for carnivore and omnivore. Between 3 of us we ordered beef steak, lamb cutlets and chicken. Each dish can only be described as delicious. The steak has had to be one of best I have ever eaten. If you are looking for silver service this is not the place for you. The service was excellent and the tables and chairs a rough wood. It is not stylish set among the trees with pebble paths. It is also fantastic value for money. Should we ever return to Tucepi this is a place we will be eating in again.

“Beautiful setting, average food”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

We decided to celebrate the end of our stay in beautiful Tucepi by going up into the hills for this meal. We weren't disappointed with the setting, loads of lovely little alcoves set amongst the olive groves. Menu was a bit limited - you need to love meat or fish, as dishes comprised very little else. But it's all cooked on the open-air grill in full view, which added a nice touch. A massive storm broke out while we were ther, so everyone dashed inside, which led to a cosy atmosphere!
Quite pricey for the food, but worth paying for the setting.
