...come from what is around us seasonally. We celebrate the traditional food of the sea, navigating the seasons faithfully with bold flavours from our Head Chef Marko Gajski.
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.
CATCH OF THE DAY:
Main course//Lobster: Adriatic lobster, agnellotti, pesto

From 26th until 30th April 2019 we celebrated the richness of our local spring produce as part of Korcula’s Spring Food and Wine Festival - Korčulanske Pjatance http://korculanskepjatance.com/en.html
Chef Marko Gajski and his team produced a range of special menus focused on local seasonal produce, such as wild asparagus, wild herbs and spring vegetables, paired with new season wine releases, olive oils, and the excellent sea food and meat that was available during that time. In order to encourage everyone to enjoy the richness of spring in Dalmatia all the menus were at special value for money prices. We loved it!
Food for Change is a global campaign organised by the Slow Food movement. During 2018 through various initiatives the campaign sought to encourage people around the world to start to think about the quality and sources of the food in everyday use, as well as the impact that different food preferences have on the world around us. LD Restaurant in Korčula has joined the campaign through its membership of the Relais & Chateaux association. Out of almost 600 R&C hotels and restaurants, from which more than 300 have been awarded Michelin stars, most of the members are supporting the Slow Food movement as the only longterm sustainable gastronomic practice.
Embracing seasonality of food and geographic location as an inexhaustible source of the culinary inspiration, LD Restaurant joined the campaign by creating a special Food for Change menu that was available in the period from 4th until 15th of October. The menu was based on healthy, ecologically sound, and locally sourced and/or produced food.
Through cooperation with local food producers, promotion of biodiversity and support of the production of ecologically sound, traditional agricultural products that help protect cultural identities related to food and culinary tradition, LD Restaurant thus contributed to the preservation of the diversity of the world's cuisine and food sources.
