Konoba Komin, Korcula Town, Croatia

Located right on the headland, Konoba Komin Restaurant is embedded into Korcula Town's stone walls. With some tables on a terrace on the front and some in a kind of conservatory the other side of the road, this scenic spot is good for watching the steady flow of passerbys and the sun setting over the Croatian coastline. The tables in the small glasshouse are probably more comfortable than the outside berths, but the latter certainly have a better view. The food is fairly simple, but tasty enough. Served brown on the outside and pink on the inside, the big juicy rump steak (100 kuna) is only accompanied by a lettuce leaf and a slice of tomato.  You may also want to order side vegetables, which can be quite greasy, and the half-mashed potatoes, which are quite garlicy. The shrimps are also generous, while the risottos (about 60-70 kuna) are on the small side, but are infused with fresh seafood. The house white wine is more drinkable than most and the service is friendly and welcoming. In the tourist trap that is Korcula Town, Konoba Komin is one of the better options for dinner. 7/10
