Eating in Korcula Old Town: Lunch

How’s that for lunch with a view?!

Old Town Korcula has a large number of cafes and restaurants, especially along the waterfront and at the point of the peninsula. So, making a choice of where to eat is quite difficult as most of them look attractive and the food we saw being served looked great.

So, for us it was pretty random really: if the menu looked good with reasonable prices, and if they had a table for us (preferably on the edge of the waterfront), then we went there.

We were not disappointed in any of the choices and were delighted with the view out over the sea. I’ll spotlight just a few of these great places. I’m feeling hungry just looking at these pictures again!

First, lunch time:

We went for lunch on our first day in Korcula at Marco Polo, partly because our apartment host recommended it and partly because it was just two buildings further up the stepped lane from our apartment. For wine, we had a glass of Stolno. Sonya and I tried the mushroom soup, and Rod and Nath had the fish broth, then we all had the Marco Polo salad (lettuce, tomatoes, feta cheese, anchovies). Everything was fresh and very good.
