We are creating food that restores, replenishes and revives.

Little family restaurant cultivates natural flavours and traditions through a touch of the modern approach to gastronomy.

Our Konoba

Konoba Mate is a small and intimate family konoba that has been opened ever since the year 2000. Slowly and with time, the family has been expanding, and today each member does what he or she loves and what they are best at. Mirjana, the mama familia, is an old-school chef, gathering us around the pot, making sure that neither we nor our guests stay hungry. Mate, pater familia, the farmer at heart, the man of nature who takes care of everything, of livestock at the farm and of prosciuttos being superiorly dried and prepared every year.

The team that discovers The Food

Biljana, often called ‘the magician’ is practicing magic around the kitchen with sweet treats and desserts followed by natural tastes of aloysia, mint and other aromatic plants. Joint at the kitchen stove, Mirjana and Biljana will impel your palates to recall your grandma’s kitchen, a delicacy that never forsakes the memory. Ana, au naturale farming girl, is often in the field so that the food you eat is fresh and grown only in ecologically accepted way. We use everything what nature gives us while making sure we do not take too much and making sure we always give something back. In the most hidden and greenest bay of our island you will meet Matij, drink natural sirups in his small beach bar  (m.a.t.e.) and round up your time spent with konoba Mate.

Menu à la Carte

Težačka plitica

Our labourers went away from home to spend a whole day in their vineyards or in the woods. They used to take a loaf of homemade bread, a piece of cheese and smoked ham, sometimes even cooked vegetables. Labourer's plate offers homemade smoked ham with goat cheese an olives, marinated aubergines, capers and aubergine pate.  Should you still be hungry after our plate, we have more food waiting for you!

Pasticada With Macaroni

Pasticada is one of the tastiest and most famous Dalmatian specialities. In the past, it was prepared for important Catholic holidays and other special occasions. A piece of beef tenderloin is kept in vinegar for a while and then taken out to be spiked with carrot and bacon. After that, it is at first fried and then cooked in a pan with browned onion, carrot, apples, prunes and spices. Wine is added to create a tasty sauce. This is a long process since the sauce has to simmer for a long time. Macaroni is homemade: pieces of dough were rolled around wooden sticks. This is a long tradition: to make macaroni that way has brought our famous adventurer Marco Polo who learned to do macaroni during his voyage to China.

Pupnatska Luka

After a nice meal, it would be a sin not to continue our gathering further down in the port of Pupnat. The most hidden and the greenest cove of our island is where the beach bar m.a.t.e. is located, where you can find not only natural homemade juice syrups and refreshing beverages but also tasty fast-food snacks from our daily menu. If you ever get bored of lying on the beach, you can always make a tour with our kayaks or play a card game in the shades of holm oaks and pine trees on the bar's terrace. An unrepeatable experience!
