“Very Average”
Reviewed September 16, 2012

Our experience at Skalinada was a little disappointing. The location of the restaurant is away from the center of Vela Luka and we sat in the quaint patio. The service was slow, the waiter was serving the entire restaurant alone and seemed to be in a bit of a flap. After eating a lot of seafood during our trip my husband and I decided to order the meat platter for dinner. The meat was tough and tasteless, thank goodness for the red pepper relish that it was served with. The couple we were with ordered a seafood rissotto (which was average) and schnitzel (that was really good). The atmosphere was good and despite the medioca food, we still had a fairly pleasant evening with friends.

“Don't overlook this little gem.”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

This Konoba is one that may easily be overlooked, but with it's great food, great setting and good staff it certainly shouldn't be.

We came here based on good TA reviews and were not disappointed. In particular I'd recommend the meat under the bell (seems to be a Korcula/Croatian speciality) where the meat is cooked for long period of time. In this Konoba's case, you need to order at least 2 hours before dinner, but it's well worth it!

“amazing food - this restaurant deserves more customers”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

This restaurant is one of the "last" ones if you walk from the center of Vela Luka, and its patio is rather hidden in green leaves which may be why this restaurant didn't seem very popular when we were there. But after trying several restaurants in the village, me and my friend are confident to say this is the best one! Vegetables are locally grown in their own garden and the food is delicious. Try the blitva! Nice, calm atmosphere with candles and view of the bay.
