We visited this restaurant on our last night in Vis and it was truly excellent. The service was friendly, the staff gave great advice and the food was some of the best we have eaten all year! We opted for the local beef dish which was incredible, along with squid.The grilled vegetable sides tasted fantastic and the marinated fish starter was beautiful. A lovely restaurant in a great location.

This was the best and most sophisticated restaurant that we visited on Vis and one of the best I've eaten at anywhere this year.

Great fresh seafood and fish served by very passionate and knowledgeable staff. Each dish was excellent and the wine appropriately matched by waiters.

5 stars from me.

Food at Kantun is all about traditionally cooked fish and it is delicious. Like many things in Vis the island pace is slow but that allows you great time to enjoy the atmosphere and the wine. It is definitely worth paying attention to the recommendations they are well thought out and they will let you have a look at what fish you will be getting and to try the wine before you commit to the bottle. The Staff are friendly and helpful.

We loved our meal at Kantun - incredible seafood, awesome ambiance and delicious wine, based on an owner recommendation. We tried to order the house white and he recommended a different bottle. It was more expensive, so we assumed it was just an upsell, but he brought us a taste of the house white, which we agreed was not very good. We went with his recommendation (a Posip from the island of Korcula) and it ended up being one of our very favorite bottles of the trip - and we had a LOT! Definitely recommend the squid, but from experience, you can't go wrong with that menu.

Our last meal on Vis and we saved the best 'til last. A quieter Friday night between the midweek charter yacht peaks was a good choice and we we're looked after admirably.

There was a choice of red snapper, monkfish and lobster for the main. We went for a monkfish and snapper combination and it was the best seafood we can remember having... ever; carefully BBQ'd on the fire in the restaurant and still moist and succulent, as were the grilled vegetables.

A surprise pre starter of fish and caper pate and fire toast got things off to a great start, and the local white wine was ideal with the smoked tuna and marinated anchovies.

Finally the chocolate and carob cake combination with lemoncello was a perfect ending.

Thanks Kantun for a meal to remember. The price? 760 kuna, which for the quality, service and atmosphere, was worth every penny.
