While at Vis, our boat was docked in the main port so to eat at Pojoda we had to catch a taxi to the town of
Pojoda is owned by chef Zoran Brajcic, who also runs cooking classes for men who work on the many local chartered yachts and want to cook their guests traditional Croatian dishes.
When he’s not teaching others how to master his dishes, Brajcic is found in the tiny kitchen of his restaurant, where his selection of traditional Croatian dishes feature fish and plenty of chickpeas, lentils and vegetables.
On the night I visited, our party of six was keen to sample some of the fresh fish Pojoda is known for (which the waiter had presented to us at the table so we could choose the particular snapper we liked the look of) but the fish was a bit pricey so instead we decided to order a selection of Brajcic’s traditional dishes to share.
With some guidance from our waiter we opted for a seafood cocktail with prawns and scampi and topped with olives, tuna in caper sauce, yellowtail with capers, a fish broth and a barley broth with lentils and herbs.
Most were about 60-70 kuna (about AUD$15-20) and all were sumptuous. A seemingly never-ending supply of bread meant we were able to soak up the tasty juices and by the end we were all too full to fit in dessert.
While Restaurant Pojoda doesn’t seem to have much competition from other Croatian restaurants offering a high-end dining experience, I think it would hold its own even if it did.
