We will get back on our luxury vehicle that will take us back to Croatia, to have lunch in Ston with Oyster & Champagne tasting in famous restaurant Captain’s House. Undisputedly, this is the best restaurant on the Adriatic with amazing offer of fresh oysters.
Pelješac peninsula is an amazing mix of historical tradition, pristine nature and superb cuisine. Ston and Mali Ston are situated at the beginning of the Peljesac peninsula and is probably one of the best travel destinations in Croatia. Mali Ston is actually a village very well known for its amazing seafood, primarily sea shell cuisine. It is linked to Ston by the Walls of Ston which makes it an impressive view.
In 14th century, during the time of the Republic of Dubrovnik, Dubrovnik acquired peninsula of Pelješac. They had pretty good idea what to do here. Republic of Dubrovnik invested large sums of money and employed many famous builders of the time to build a monumental defensive system. The result were defensive walls built from one side of the peninsula to the other, until today the longest in Europe. According to the plan, two small towns were built, too. Ston on the north and Mali Ston on the south which had the purpose of housing people who guarded the borders.
Definitely a gastronomic institution, Captain’s House has a 45-year long tradition and it is located in a stone house on the waterfront, where the captain of the Maloston guard used to live during the Republic of Dubrovnik. Why are oysters so good? Well, in Maloston Bay oysters have been cultivated the since the 17th century. And if practice makes perfect, they sure are. Oysters here can be ordered by the piece, so you can combine several preparation methods on the plate.
