Konoba Mate

L'avis de Gault&Millau

Konoba (tavern) Mate is located in the village Pupnat on island Korčula. It is run by a family in which each member has their own role: mother Mirjana is the lady of the house, father Mate takes care of the animals, the field in which is grown everything they bring to the table, makes sure the prosciutto dries well and takes care of the homemade wine. Daughter Biljana designs dishes and boldly creates sweet spells. We started the dinner on the intimate terrace of the old stone house with a “farmer’s plate” with goat cheeses of different maturity, homemade prosciutto, green tomato jam, prosciutto and eggplant pates, marinated eggplants, olives, pickled samphire and capers. The plentiful platter makes a true Mediterranean combination of flavours and textures. We were delighted with the sweet taste of prosciutto pâté and the sweet - sour taste of eggplant pâté. For the main course, on the recommendation of pleasant and unobtrusive staff, we tried tuna pašticada (stew) with yellow polenta and handmade Žrnovo makaruni (traditional macaroni from the village Žrnovo) with prawns and salsa. Both dishes were very tasty and plentiful. The wine list offers a variety of wines from the island of Korčula, as well as light, white homemade wine, which we opted for. For dessert, we were delighted by the famous white chocolate mousse with laurel cream, pistachio and homegrown mint, a refreshing and sweet summer treat. We also tasted chocolate cake with a little bit of red pepper, almonds and homemade bitter orange jam - a combination that is a true aromatic summer refreshment. Biljana Milina uses all the richness of the family garden to make desserts, so you can also taste olive ice cream, aromatic herbs sorbet and caramel cream with rose liqueur. The richness of traditional flavours of fish and meat dishes, the warm, homely atmosphere and the commitment to fresh, local ingredients are the reasons why guests are happy to return to tavern Mate.
