In 2014 former partners split and now only Maja runs the business and cooks, under the new name - Aterina. I have visited them twice this summer and I can gladly say that the concept and high standards remain the same. Everything we tried was fresh and delicious - octopus in red wine with fantastic makaruni pasta, marinated and grilled Atlantic bonito, breaded sardines... Their tomato soup tastes like you have just squeezed out tomato's pure essence and cooked it, and the desserts are heavenly. Their classic is the now already famous basil cake - imagine a light and juicy version of cheese cake with an extra refreshing kick of basil.
This year's new entry is the amazing amaretto cake. Service was smooth and friendly, prices a bit high, but worth it. The location is also a big plus - you're tucked away from masses of tourists and all the noise, while still being inside Korčula Old Town, overlooking the sea.
