The Lešić Dimitri Palace is located within the city walls of the beautiful medieval Old town of Korčula, right next to the birthplace of Marco Polo. The baroque building of the former Bishop’s palace combines a luxurious boutique hotel with stylish apartments and a top-notch restaurant designed by a bold team of creatives and gourmets. A British businessman and antiques lover bought and refurbished the abandoned palace, brought it back to life and added value to the tourist offer of the town back in 2007. We booked a seafront table several days earlier.They welcomed us warmly as if we had been there many times before. Other guests enjoyed the same treatment too. Our dining experience began with a fresh and still warm focaccia served with three different olive oils of Korčula, which the waiter presented professionally. The menu offers only 5 to 6 appetizers, as many main courses and only 3 desserts, as well as tasting menus consisting of 5 or 7 courses. For appetizers, we had sea-bass sashimi, bottarga and horseradish, and snails in the tempura, seasoned with cream of garlic, parsley, lardo and egg yolk. Both appetizers were original and unique and so was the main course: cod with asparagus, black garlic and bee pollen. The meaning of the phrase “cherry on the top” has yet again been confirmed and all the credit goes to the pastry chef for his fantastic desserts: Sea of Chocolate and the Sun. We paired our dishes with Intrada wine, made by the Korčula winemaker Luka Krajančić from the autochthonous pošip variety. If you are interested in a truly unique gastronomic experience, we definitely recommend visiting Lešić Dimitri.
