A visit here is worth the trouble of heading off the main road that leads from Ston to Orebić and Korčula. Prosciuttos hang from the ceiling as you enter the Antunović tavern, where all food is home-made: pancetta, sausages, lamb grilled or prepared under a cooking bell, peka. You can taste age-old, traditional meals such as tripice (a sort of goulash made with lamb or veal tripe) and pikatić (lamb offal). Liquors and grappas are also products of the house, the wine from surrounding Pelješac – where else? The konoba generally offers prepared menus for a set price, and appreciates advance warning. Besides the tavern, there is a whole family-run farm with sheep, goats and donkeys. There are only 2,000 donkeys in Croatia today, and their milk costs 200kn a litre, not only because of its scarcity but also its medicinal aspects.
