“Very good with some deficiencies”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Well-designed ambience in the shape of the ship, the fish was fresh, wild and very well prepared on the grill. Vegetables would be more palatable to fish if they are shorter roasting on the grill so it would be less oily and bitter. Octopus stew was tasty but would have been even juicier the octopus before buzara less cooked. Owner in terms of meals did not provide a sufficient number of staff so You longer waiting, although staff given its maximum. The staff is very friendly but not very professional, so you can expect physical contact and inappropriate statements. White wine by glass is completely inappropriate with white fish dishes and white meat while red wine of the house pretty good. Prices are OK.

“Excelent sea food !”
Reviewed July 4, 2014

Restaurant is on the wooden ship terrace and you have felling that you are sailing, with nice view on the Korcula island, close to the beach. Great white fish with grilled vegetables. Big choice of vine... Prices are almost the same in all restaurants in Orebic.
This is one of the best.
We will sure came again!

“eat aboard!”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

climb on board the amazing boat for some typical croatian cuisine. We shared the fish platter which was ,as always, a meal in itself. Don't miss the lovely local postup wine, sold by the litre. It was recommended by the charming waiters and was delicious! May look a bit of a tourist trap with the amazingly constructed wooden ship, but is far from it. Lovely view as well!

We dined on the sea platter for two with fresh caught sea bass, prawns and tuna. The house red wine is devine. We were given complementary appetizers and home made brandy.
