Location is good, the indoor restaurant just elegant, outdoor terrace is nice forcthe season, service good, but a bit slow with only one waiter working when we were there (though a nice person). Wine selection and recommendations for the courses very good,- but unfortunately, for our dinner wuth friends; one beef was uneatable while one was perfect, the marinated mussels... More

Slightly hidden away, but worth searching out. We walked past many restaurants overlooking the sea, but all were too busy. Then stumbled across this restaurant which was perfect. We sat in a beautiful quiet courtyard, had great food and wine, very friendly service and at good prices. The fish was wonderful.

The location is very good, overlooking the water with options for more shletered and indoors seating if needed. It is also free of the pine tree resin that makes some of the tables on the eastern foreshore sticky! It is one of the more expensive fish restaurants, but very good with attentive, efficient and friendly service. Definitely a good choice... More

We were going through almost all the fashionista restaurants along the walkway overlooking the sea, however after checking out three of them we figured that all of them are offering the same: tuna, homemade bread and cakes, pizzas. This was the only restaurant where the waiter was fair and honest, offering us yesterday's catch, which luckily for any of us... More

As we were strolling along the island, passing all the touristy restaurants, we saw this cosily lit beautiful terrace. We were welcomed by a very friendly couple. Kanavelic serves tasty local specialties, the waiter is funny and very considerate. As dark clouds rolled in over the island and a huge thunderstorm made rain poor down on our parasol and cut...

When it is windy it might be cold. - The food was OK, not excedtional: Ravioli with lobster and Tartar from Tuna as a starter and w whole sea bass (loup de mer) with spinach. Together with one bottel white wine, water and 2 coffee we... More

Fantastic restaurant. The seafood was excellent. Had the grilled Orada / Sea Bream and side veggies. A top end restaurant and worth it. Only regret was I did not have room for the local cheeses for desert. Next time. Highly recommend and it will be the first restaurant I will book when I am there next. A bit difficult to... More

This restaurant is an absolute MUST!! Don't miss it. Our 5th night out and we tried Kanavelic. Based on the number of reviews, this is Korcula's best kept secret. As a family we had grilled calamari and tuna steaks, both excellent. Great service too.

We have been a few times in Korcula and we always have at least one dinner at Kanavelic. The food is really good, great wines but the best is the wonderful setting with the big citrus tree in the yard and the lovely staff. They make you feel so at home, jokes and laughter all evening, making this our absolute... More
