As soon as you land on Brač after the short ferry hop from Split, you’re drawn by the aromas of the bustling terrace restaurants lining Supetar harbour. Here the fish is fresh and the olive oil locally produced. Explore the island’s hinterland, and you find delightful old taverns, konobas, serving exquisite lamb, prepared in the age-old Dalmatian way.

Palute

Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$

The wonderful Palute sits on Supetar harbour, and its extensive terrace is pretty much the first thing you see when you step off the boat from Split. For waterside location, quality of food, fish and meat prepared on a traditional grill, and superb service, they could charge a fortune – but they don’t. Many opt for the seafood platter, either for one or for two, with a carafe of house white to accompany.

Konoba Mlin

Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$

Save

An ever-popular choice close to Bol harbour, the Konoba Mlin is just that – a mill tavern, set around what was a working operation a century or so ago. Given the sea-view setting, it’s quite wonderfully romantic, with plenty of outdoor seating encouraging you to take your time over your traditionally grilled fish or lamb. Don’t skimp on starters, either: octopus salads and Dalmatian prosciutto.

Taverna Riva

Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$
Save to wishlist
Save

There’s something a bit different about the Taverna Riva, something that makes it worth visiting above and beyond the surroundings, a sturdy stone house and terrace overlooking the Adriatic in Bol. If you’re staying longer than three days on Brač, you’ll appreciate a menu that veers away from the standard 10 dishes you’ll see everywhere, to offer the likes of pumpkin gnocchi with four-cheese sauce and spit-roasted lamb offal, vitalac. Lamb, veal and octopus are prepared ‘under the bell’, as they say in Dalmatia, which means slow-roasted in hot coals.

Konoba Tomić

Boutique Hotel Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$

Dining at Konoba Tomić, high up in the island’s hinterland, is like going back in time. A family house since the age of the Crusades, the Tomić tavern prides itself on providing specialities that have been produced on site, such as home-made sausages, cheese and prosciutto – plus wine, of course. There’s plenty of choice of peka dishes, slow-cooked in coals, such as lamb, pork and octopus.

Nono Ban

Boutique Hotel Restaurant, Restaurant, Mediterranean
Save to wishlist
Save

Nono Ban is a complex of traditional villas set around Gornji Humac, a high point in the Brač hinterland. Guests, and non-guests, who should phone to reserve, are treated to what the chef found at the market that morning, expertly prepared in the classic Dalmatian way. The accent is on healthy living, but don’t feel you shouldn’t knock back the wine, produced by those who run the place.

Konoba Raj

Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$

Murvica, on the southern shore of the island, is one of those places people go to year after year, offering tranquillity and seclusion within easy reach of Bol and its airport. Another of its attractions is the Konoba Raj, whose traditional atmosphere, stunning views and stellar seafood and grilled meats have earned it the kind of reputation that have diners trekking over from Bol.

‘Local Food for Pure Pleasure’ is the motto at the Konoba Dalmatino, celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2017. Dalmatian brodetto, lamb and fresh fish are served in classic taverna surroundings, the walls lined with farm implements and framed images of age-old rural and maritime life. Staff will be happy to advise on wine and, indeed, on traditional local dessert.

Restoran Punta

At the far edge of Supetar beyond the cemetery, past the Waterman resort complex, the Restoran Punta provides top-quality grilled fish and meats in tranquil surroundings, backdropped by the Adriatic. The seafood platters, bedecked with all manner of shellfish, are works of art in themselves. Kids will enjoy the pizzas if scampi isn’t their thing.

Konoba Mendula

Restaurant, Mediterranean, $$$
Save to wishlist
Save

Though you miss out on a sea view here, surrounded by holiday rental apartments, you make up for it with the quality of the seafood and local produce to accompany it. Regulars, the bulk of them Bol locals, wouldn’t come here otherwise. The Konoba Mendula is inexpensive too, another plus for the loyal customer, these days priced out of dining on the harbourfront. There’s a menu but most don’t bother with it and just ask the waiter what’s fresh that day.

Ribarska kućica

Restaurant, Mediterranean
Save to wishlist
Save

For the last holiday blow-out, you could do far worse than the Ribarska kućica, ‘a restaurant for fishermen and gourmets’ as its blurb says. Set in a stone house where fishermen stored their nets and salted their catch, this revered little spot is balanced at the end of a stone path atop a secluded beach and miles of sea. If you need a place on Brač to propose in, this would be it. Like the previous occupants, they know very well what to do with fish here, matching monkfish with smoked prosciutto, and serving exquisite lobster, for which you should bring a thick wad of kunas as well as that engagement ring.
