Wonderful, authentic dishes made with locally sourced seafood. The tuna steak was especially delicious. Beautiful location by the sea. Worth a day trip from Split or Dubrovnik. Open year-round.

Hiked the wall from Ston to Mali Ston and had lunch here. Great waiter with absolutely awesome food! You MUST have the oysters while here. Would also recommend having any seafood. Squid is the best I have ever had! Simply spectacular!

You can find restaurant Bota Sare, Mali Ston in narrow center waterfront, situated within the old castle. Wide palette of fresh fish, unique oysters, shellfish is prepared as per original local recipes that bring finger licking food to your table (ask for gradele, popara, buzara, brudet). Do not miss to try local risotto, black risotto, and homemade bread from natural fire heated oven. We also invite you to take a boat trip to see Ston's Bay and to visit the place where the Sare family is growing shellfish close to the Banje Island which is owned by family Sare and family Matkovic. On Banje Island there is a large number of various Mediterranean herbs and over 200 olive threes which provide the olive oil for Bota restaurants. The experience of visiting the island will be improved by the special program which can be prepared in advance. For many different possibilities, please consult the restaurant Manager Tomislav Šare.
