Modern Dalmatian Food

in Korčula Old Town


The best ideas for our menu...

...come from what is around us seasonally. We celebrate the traditional food of the sea, navigating the seasons faithfully with bold new flavours. 

Located in Lešić Dimitri Palace on Korčula island, our inspiration comes from the  Adriatic coast’s beautiful gardens – above and below sea level. We are connected to Korčula’s indigenous seasonal produce.

Thank you to the guests and chefs who made our 2016 Relais & Chateaux Gourmet Sensation a huge success. We would particularly like to thank Chefs Niall Keating from Restaurant Kong Hans Kaelder in Copenhagen and Nino Mosca from Il Bottaccio in Forte di Marmi for making the long journey and contributing so much. The Croatian team also did a superb job. Thank you to Chef Andrej Barbieri from Hotel Bevanda, chefs Danijela Pifar and Bojan Vuković from Wine Hotel Meneghetti, and, of course, our own team led by Toni Erceg. Thank you also to Maksimilijan Garden for hosting the after party, which went on until 6.30 in the morning!

LD Restaurant has an intimate space for up to 10 guests to sample the latest menu ideas, paired with recommended olive oils and local wines. WE can also create exclusive menus for Chef’s Table guests using requested ingredients. The Chef’s Table can be booked for lunch or dinner.
