Konoba Mala Mare

Reviewed By Twopilots - Madison, Wisconsin

Driving along the coast from Dubrovnik to Split was the first great experience of the day. The second was finding this charming family run restaurant next to the Adriatic. They make their own wine, grow many of the vegetables and everything is fresh and homemade. The daughter who waited on us was just a doll. We had the platter of grilled meats which included sausages, skewered chicken and pork, beef steak and pork cutlet. They had the best potatoes I think I have ever eaten and I am not a lover of potatoes. Along with this...fresh grilled vegetables. It is making me hungry just remembering this pleasant experience.

Nicolo Polo

The Nicolo Polo Restaurant is one of the oldest still operating restaurants in Gradac. It entered the Polo family in 1988 but was known as " Bartuls place" before that. Has since it opened been known as one of the best places in the whole region to dine in, famous for its fresh ingredients, sometimes taken directly from the sea, and continously changing menu.<br>Our cuisine is mainly sticking to the motto "to sell a domestic experience" and focus therefore mostly on Dalmatian-Mediterranean Cuisine. However, for those guests that feel more comfortable with an International and trendy offer our menu wont lack that either. As the owner was born and raised in Sweden and his family Restaurant tradition goes back to the 60ies in Sweden, as being one of the first Restaurateurs from Croatia, a small touch of Scandinavia can be felt in the food too.<br><br>Anyhow, Croatia is not only Dalmatia (The Mediteranian). Croatias gastronomy is reflected from a long seize of many neighboring countries, such as the Ottomans(Turky), the Habsburg (Hungary, Austria), Venize and Rome (Italy), Napoleon (France) and more that can be felt in other areas of Croatia and Herzegovina.<br>Also, as Marco Polo was an explorer and gourmand, here and there even a trace of Asian flavors can be felt in some of our specialties - areas he explored.<br><br>When traveling to new places and food cultures, people want to explore new tastes and hopefully choose the best quality. We wish to be your ambassador of a great gastronomy experience - this include interesting and changing menus for the best quality in our house, organizing wine and gastro tours, organizing evenings where we take you to old taverns hard to find....

Average food for the type and class of restaurant. Nice location and very professional service but food served bit messy and rich.

Marinero No. 1

Reviewed By Elma O - Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

What happeneddddd!?!? The restaurant is dirty, staff impolite, food is not the food you order ... what happened?! I will never go to this restaurant again! I am so disappointed. This was my favourite place ... Hm... Horrible. I ordered tomato soup, and I got ....everything but not tomato soup, I ordered fried cheese, and I got 2 tinyyyy tinyyy pieces of cheese ... seriously, what happened!?!? My husband and I just got up and left. These thing saddens me on Balkan, you have a feeling of disrespectfulness, the feeling that you are being robbed, and you cannot do anything about it. People, it's not about the money, it's about the feeling.

Saudade

Restaurant Saudade is situated on the ground floor of Hotel Saudade and it consists of an indoor dining room part and outdoor Terrace directly by the sea. Our Chefs use only fresh, locally grown ingredients which this area abounds with, whether it is fresh fish, shellfish or vegetables. We put emphasis on traditional Dalmatian and Mediterranean specialties, which we prepare in original, traditional way.

Reviewed By CriXP83 - Varese, Italy

The restaurant is located inside the omonymus hotel Saudade.
It has a wonderful view over the sea, the beach and sunset.
The staff was great: great service, kindness and good suggestions on which dish to choose.
I chose as starter the "Dalmatian taste" with local ham, bacon, olive and different kind of cheese.
As main dish I tasted a fantastic Monkeyfish with local vegetable.
The dessert was superb!!!
A fantastic evening!

Konoba Bukara

Reviewed By lydia0z - Melbourne, Australia

We visited on the recommendation from locals. For dinner we had grilled sea bream and sole and fried calamari, with a side of grilled eggplant, zucchini and peppers; food which was cooked simply but was extremely tasty. There is a large variety to choose from in terms of fish and seafood and other dishes. The waiter was attentive and friendly. The price of the fish was very reasonable, especially when compared to prices in Dubrovnik and other large coastal towns. The outdoor setting next to the beach was nice and relaxing and we enjoyed watching the Ferries come and go and listening to the loud Croatian music coming from the "Felun Jedan" (One Felon/Convict) party cruise boat; an entertaining Monday night.

Admiral Restaurant

Reviewed By Samira P

Superdrunk owner sure doesn't make the atmosphere here. We went here with my mother and in five minutes owner dude pulled my mom for a dance, groped her, pulled me to see their seafood selection and shouted to the whole restaurant our nationality and did few "funny" jokes about us being sisters. The dude also had serious issues with personal hygiene.
That was enough and we left the place. So nothing to tell about the food or drinks, but I suggest you should choose any else restaurant in Igrane.

Cocktail bar Lavcenj

Reviewed By PepperyPotts - Velika Gorica, Croatia

The only bar in Gradac with coffee cream :). Location near, actually, partly on beach, has plenty of shade which is very helping in these extremly hot days. Music is not maybe my favorite (rock) but the place is kind of unique, has different kind of guests and its worth visiting - especially in the evening when you sit by the sea, watch stars and enjoy you coctail.

I've became a regular guest and I noticed that even it was great in the very begining, now it's even better. I absolutely reccomend new pizzas: mozzarela pizza and especially Shrimp pizza. Even though when my sugar level goes down, Sweet pizza helps instantly :).
p.s. Your waitress makes the best ice cappuccino in the Gradac :)

Reviewed By Jukka W - Vantaa, Finland

Menu is not so wide but we had one dinner here and had one of the best burgers ever. And the price was really low, I hardly believed the bill when the friendly waiter brought it. Definitely recommend this place!Dear Jukka, Thank you for your feedback. We are happy that you enjoyed our burgers and we hope we will see you again ;-)
