Restaurant Konoba Grubinjac – Zrnovo
A restored old farm house run by local family that owns this beautiful farm for centuries the konba is recently modernised to make it suitable for visitors.
What I really like about this restaurant and what make it unique and different is it location with uninterrupted views over below hills, Sveti Antun, Mountain Sveti Ilija, Peljesac Channel, Badija and Korcula Archipelago.
As far as food and drink is concerned, at Grubinjac they do grilled meals, cooked meals, snacks and vegetables as well as their own, home produced wine and usual soft drinks.
I often come here as stop-off on my way from Zrnovo to Korcula to have a drink and quick snack of glass of wine and ‘slane gere‘ (a salted fish snack) .
It is usually in late afternoons or early evenings – I sit and watch light setting off over Korcula Archipelago, and moon coming up behind Vrnik and Lumbarda hills. At this time of the day restaurant is not as busy as bit later when it tends to attract a lot of people. (So, if you are planning to have an romantic evening meal here, booking of table is advisable.)
Grubinjac is on the reasonable walking distance from the Town, though I would suggest you to take taxi back ( if you plan to stay until late) as road from Grubinjac to Korcula has only limited public lighting, has no pavement/ footpath and could be busy. Although on clear nights with moonshine walking from here to Korcula feels like walking in the daylight.
