Many (and we do mean many) times in our blogging adventures here we’ve talked about the meaning of the word KONOBA. We will not be repeating it because of your sanity and ours. But as just a quick reminder, KONOBA is a prefix that means a traditional Dalmatian restaurant. Which means it is usually family owned, has traditional food (and lots and lots of wine), and is decorated in a specific way usually wood and is placed in a cellar.
Konoba Nikola in Stobreč (10-15 minute ride from Split) is all of those things. Opened sometime in the early 2000s, this is a beloved family-run restaurant. Located in the subterranean rooms of a family home, it has the feel of a traditional restaurant, but the tastes are far above it. The owners, chefs, and waiters make sure that their fish is freshly caught, vegetables newly plucked and picked, and the meat is locally sourced. Because of that, and the traditional way of preparing food, you will not be disappointed with a single meal here. Fish is definitely something we suggest you try. But even though this author is a big meat lover, let me nudge you in the way of their black squid risotto.
Reservations are encouraged in a high summer season, so keep that in mind. Take the short ride from Split and enjoy some of the best that Dalmatia has to offer!
