Restaurants in the Area of Dalmatia from Neum to Metkovic
Dalmatian food is Mediterranean. Not exactly Italian but much like it. Lots of fish or grilled meat for dinner and something lighter for lunch. Most places will provide white Italian-style bread free of charge while you wait for your food.
Lunch typically costs around 10 Euros. Lunch might be pizza or a salad with a soft drink or a beer.
Dinner is 15-25 Euro. If your holiday takes you to one of the countless small family-run roadside restaurants, it pays off to ask what they can recommend. Maybe a member of the family or a friend has just caught calamari or butchered a lamb.
Prices (on everything) are higher in Dubrovnik.
Croatian wine is excellent though mostly unknown outside the former Yugoslavia. There are the normal table wines (stolno vino), the home-made wines and the high-quality wines (kvalitetno and vrhunsko). You get what you pay for - maybe with the exception of the home made wines that can be anything from plain to excellent.
There are four places in Komarna where you can eat out.
Restaurant Bridge is across the street from Apartment Tedo and down the stairs by the water. A nice place where you can sit upstairs or downstairs with perfect view of the Peljesac Bridge.
Konaba Storia at the water front below Villa Bil.
Really nice location with local food of high quality. They opened in 2018 and are the latest addition to restaurants in Komarna.
Adriatica Restaurant up on the road to the left.
Opened in early 2018 and has a full service and menu.
Beach Bar Uvala down by the beach.
Beach Bar opened in 2015. Great and lovely location. They can serve you drinks, sandwich, toast or pancakes and if you order a day in advance you can have a full meal with fish or meat.
There are numerous restaurants everywhere on the road from Split to Dubrovnik as well as on the inland road to Mostar.
Klek three kilometers south of Komarna were the place to go for a holiday if you were a communist official in old Yugoslavia. The plenitude of small worn down flats and bungalows might seem like something out of the 70's, but many have been renovated and luckily, the restaurants by the beach are in good shape.
The Hotel Plaza has good food and attentive waiters. The Adriatic on the coastal road and restaurant Skoj on the beach are also good.
Neum eight kilometers south of Komarna is in Bosnia- Herzegovina.
Despite Neum's size, it is a bustling market town. All restaurants and
shops in Neum will accept Croatian Kuna.
There are lots of reasons why tourists on holiday and locals alike go
to Neum, and one main reason is lower prices than in Croatian.
Cigarettes and liquor are cheaper than in Croatia and so are food and
most other things as well.
The restaurants on the coastal road are neither good nor bad. We recommend that you use them for a snack or a cup of coffee and drive on towards Dubrovnik where you find Restaurant Karaka almost at the end of Neum. You can also turn right and drive down towards the beach. On the right-hand side of the road, you will find two restaurants. They both have a good selection on the menu and a reasonable price/quality ratio. Humska Kuca (mountain hut) is the first one just after the entrance to Hotel Sunce and then there is Bonaca about 100 meters before the bottom of the road. Bonaca has excellent fish, and Humska Kuca has the biggest menu card. Both are reasonable with their prices and provide a good and professional service.
Some people prefer the beach in Neum to the beaches in Klek and Komarna. Maybe it is the wide selection of souvenir shops and smaller restaurants, but the place is really crowded during the high season.
Going North from Komarna you head into the Neretva River Delta.
Opposite the petrol station in Opuzen, the Hotel Merlot has a large
menu card and a good kitchen. On the town-hall square in Opuzen, there
is a small restaurant next to the church.
Metkovic 20 km. away has three restaurants and three pizzerias. Konoba Lanterna on Splitska 21 and Restaurant and pizzeria Milano on Sportska Street and Restaurant Metkovic at Oca Ante Gabria 11 (behind a very old former prison). . There are also dozens of cafes everywhere and especially on Sportska Street by the stadium. Behind the hospital is another pizzeria with a limited selection and also one next the the new market place.
If you want to travel a little further on, we recommend a meal
at "Duda i Mate" in Vid. Vid village is on top
of the ancient Narona ruins and Restaurant "Duda i Mate" is on the
left just as you enter the village at the place where the Roman Forum
used to be and close to the river. If you follow the road a few
kilometers further on you find Konoba Vrilo with a
very good food and reasonable prices.
Dubrovnik. There is a "secret" bar outside the walls of Dubrovnik old town. It is not easy to find, but do try. From the main square walk past Rector's Palace and the Catredral, then through small alleys until you hit the wall. At this point, turn right and look out for a sign saying, "cold drinks". That's it. Through a small door, you are able to get to the other side of the wall and to the bar.
When you visit Dubrovnik, as you really ought to, there are some top-rated restaurants that can give you a good experience. Restaurant Nautika just outside the Pile Gare, Proto and Mimoza. Our personal choice is Taj Mahal. It is a restaurant (surprisingly) specialized in Bosnian food, and the address is south of Placa on Nikole Gucetica 2.
