    KristaB, from Solvenia, recommended this family's homemade wines and grappas. Tasty and beautifully bottled - if you're looking for something special - seek out this producer in Jelsa

    view at Konoba Humac, Humac 4 more images

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Konoba Humac is located east of Jelsa. You'll have take a rock filled, dirt road to reach this konoba but the effort is well rewarded. The setting looks out towards Brac - you sit beneath trees amid a cluster of stone houses. Order a glass of the strong red plavic and take in the view, and let the tranquilty of the setting work it's magic. All the food is locally produced. You must order 'under the bell' type dishes in advance.

    Favorite Dish: The lamb was incredibly tender and juicy - the thinly sliced grilled potatoes slightly smoky from the grill. The salted sardines were bathed in fresh olive oil. The home made plavic wine is robust and strong. Thanks to KristaB for recommendation.

    Well-priced, pleasant location, good food

    Favorite Dish: Seafood risotto 40 kn
    Breadcrumbed hake 35 kn
    Wiener Schnitzel 45 kn
    Grilles calamari 40kn
    1 litre local wine 50 kn
    Please note these are 2004 prices.
    The same risotto in summer 2008 cost 50kn! But the places is still excellent.

    Some great events taking place in the evenings: poetry recitals on the little garden island in the middle of Vrboska, opera in the main square in Jelsa, Dobronic exhibition in the Opcinski Dom (Town Hall, Jelsa). The authorities are making a big effort now for tourists.

    Dress Code: casual

    .. well it's a cafe that seems to attract teenagers. It's in the middle of the Dubokovic park, and has an internet cafe attached. Verandah and wooden pergolas provide shade.

    Dress Code: plenty of punks there, so don;t worry!
