Five years ago, oenophile owner Ivan Ivičević Bakulić created this special location, under a thick ceiling of grape vines in Luka, serving fine indigenous wines. Now Kantun also serves superb Med fare. Inside is a modern makeover of a traditional konoba, each table decked with different tablecloths, the low stone ones in the back room surrounded by local art. A jazz soundtrack adds to the bohemian feel, which is made Croatian with the sizzle of lamb or amberjack on a huge open grill on one side of the dining room. Reserve a table here or on the patio, and sip an aperitif in the candlelit, vine-covered courtyard. Then get ready for huge servings of fish soup, ladled from a silver bowl, accompanied by delicious dark bread with fresh herbs and garlic; leave room for dessert, rožata crème caramel, carob or chocolate cake.
