Known to Korčula regulars by its original name of U Maje i Tonke, this kooky and creative restaurant was re-launched as Aterina in summer 2014. The recipe for success remains the same: inventive use of local ingredients, married to modern, bistro-style presentation. The only potential drawback is its popularity – come here in August and you might have to wait for a table. The konoba built its reputation on cooking up Mediterranean main courses and nibble-food (‘Dalmatian tapas’ is the way they describe it) with anything that can be locally grown, caught or picked. Soups of the day, marinated fish, aubergines with goat’s cheese, pasta dishes with home-made pesto and creative cakes are among the treats in store. There’s a fantastic outdoor terrace with views of the swaying palm tops along the harbour.
