The "Kapetanova kuca" restaurant is situated on the most attractive location on the Mali Ston waterfront. The name was derived and chosen as such due to the fact that it was the centre and dwelling place of the Mali Ston Guard Captain. The "Kapetanova kuca" was opened on 1 September 1986 and back then it was a family tavern. It is owned by Kralj family, one of the oldest families in Mali Ston. The restaurant offers specialties of the Mali Ston Bay exclusively, and includes a large winery of Peljesac wines.
We ordered one kg of mussels, four oysters, and a grilled octopus for lunch. Also had two glasses of white wine.
The oysters and grilled octopus entree were quite good. The mussels were small in sizes, and a little too salty. But still tasty. The wine was good. The bread spread was excellent. And the the price was amazingly cheap. It costed us less than 55€! The surrounding environments were quite cozy. With the old castle and long wall just behind the restaurant, we had a nice walk after lunch.
Overall, it was a good meal that deserved a detour en route to Dubrovnik. Recommended!!

Excellent food, mostly domestic dishes. Oysters from Ston are one of the best in the world and if you are in Dubrovnik this is MUST for all people who like to eat the best food. Images enclosed are telling more then thousand words. I like sea food and this is paradise for me. Excellent staff and nature surroundings the restaurant.

You can find restaurant Bota Sare, Mali Ston in narrow center waterfront, situated within the old castle. Wide palette of fresh fish, unique oysters, shellfish is prepared as per original local recipes that bring finger licking food to your table (ask for gradele, popara, buzara, brudet). Do not miss to try local risotto, black risotto, and homemade bread from natural fire heated oven. We also invite you to take a boat trip to see Ston's Bay and to visit the place where the Sare family is growing shellfish close to the Banje Island which is owned by family Sare and family Matkovic. On Banje Island there is a large number of various Mediterranean herbs and over 200 olive threes which provide the olive oil for Bota restaurants. The experience of visiting the island will be improved by the special program which can be prepared in advance. For many different possibilities, please consult the restaurant Manager Tomislav Šare.
Our experience at Bota Sare in Mali Ston was as part of a ship shorex, so it may not be typical. We began by visiting their mussel and oyster beds on a small boat. Very interesting process to raise these shellfish. We enjoyed fabulously fresh mollusks which were accompanied by excellent Peljesac wines. Then off to the group lunch at the restaurant. We had a fixed menu of mixed salads, tuna salad, seafood risotto, mussel fettuccine with red/wine table wine and caramel custard for dessert. Everything was delicious but service was lacklustre. I expect individual patrons who order off the full menu would have a different experience.

Last year, I organized a trip to Croatia and we travelled in a group of 5. A private van was hired to bring us around to the various cities and towns, which include Zagreb, Split, Zadar, Dubrovnik, and the island of Korcula.
This recommendation to dine at this particular restaurant was given to me by my private guide in Dubrovnik.
We travelled from Dubrovnik back to Zagreb, and had our lunch in Ston, which is famous for its oysters and seafood.
It was recommended to have a reservation, but we didnt make any ahead. By the time we arrived, the restaurant - Konoba Bakus was full house. We had to spend sometime in this little town of Ston, browsing through some souvenir shops while waiting for our turn.
Finally, the wait was worthwhile. We ordered oysters, prawns, mussels and some fish.
When we were served the food, we were all hungry and looking forward to the delicacies. The oysters were very fresh, and they tasted a little sweet to me. It was nice. Mussels were cooked with wine and garlic, and they were superb! The prawns were prepared with risotto, and this dish was fine with me as I am not a fan of the risotto. As for the little fish, it was recommended by the staff at the restaurant. It was kind of salty, as I do not take salty food often back home.
Overall, it was a pleasant experience dining at the Konoba Bakus. It is obvious that they have really good business with guests coming in perpetually into the restaurant.
Last of all, I find that the cost of the food is generally much lower compared to that in Western Europe.
Do make a stop here for a great meal if you are in Croatia.

We have been in Ston several times and we like this restaurant. The seafood is really of highest quality, we tried Oyster with lemon - very nice. Then Buzzara with white wine source- delicious, and scampi from the area - great as well. I was not fully convinced how they prepared the Jacobs-Mussels - the sauce was overly dominant, but overall a nice and pleasant experience. And the waiter is a character, the location awesome.

Visit us and relax on our Terrace perched high on the cliff edge. Choose between daily fresh fish, unique Ston oysters, local shellfish or a number of meat dishes. Try some local wines, sit back and enjoy spectacular views of the crystal clear sea.
We passed by the restaurant and went in for lunch. This is our best meal after 4 days in Croatia. We ordered fried seafood, grilled squid and oysters. They are simply tasty and fresh.
Service is super ! Attentive and helpful servicing staff.
Not to mentioned they are sited on a hill with fabulous view over the bay.
Reasonable price too.

We were welcomed with open arms. The food was outstanding - fresh and beautifully prepared in its simplicity.
The mussels were superb and the dorado delicious.
Their own produced wine is also excellent.
A little pricy but then you have the location, the freshness and free docking.

We had intended going to another restaurant in Stom which is highly recommended on Tripadvisor, but it was full and we were told we wouldn't get a table for 8 for over an hour. The restaurant next to it was quieter (which we took as a bad sign), but it was very pretty with a little garden they have just opened this summer, so we decided to give it a go. The young waiter was very polite and attentive during our meal and the food was very good. We had mussels and the octopus salad, followed by stuffed squid. After our meal the waiter brought out a bottle of grappa and we had a couple of glasses on the house. a delightful evening.
