Konoba Humac: incredible grilled lamb in a perfect...
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.
Marko: A step up from Hambi

Youth Club in the park
