Tavern Bepo

Biserka Jerkov
Price range:

The Konoba Bepo in Tribunj offers a very good table red wine. It is a mixture of Plavina and Babić grown in the nearby village of Dubrava, tasty also in a simple glass, yet served in a large balloon wine glass it amazingly developed the aromas and made a better impression than most of the bottled red wines. The white table wine is the Krauthaker’s Graševina. There’s no need to look further for wine since according to the wine list they offer two more in 1l bottles, and nine in 0.75l bottles. Beers are all from the Karlovačka Pivovara brewery, and the draught one is more expensive than the bottled one.

The variety of food offered is wider. Tuna prosciutto is praiseworthy. The delicious smoked meat was served on arugula with cherry tomatoes, lemon, lettuce, capers and sea fennel, with octopus carpaccio, shrimps and slightly too salty anchovies. Hot starters included homemade gnocchi, at least they were presented as such, which were soggy, sodden with sauce, the courgettes were very good, and the shrimps were similar to those bought from shop.

The brudet fish stew has to be ordered a day in advance, whilst octopus or fish were prepared in the oven with vegetables four hours in advance. Brudet is only sold only by the kilogramme, and is only 10 kunas cheaper than a kilogramme of large scampi, and 30 kunas cheaper than a kilogramme of scampi buzara style. The most affordable dish is the mussles buzara style, and one portion is 50 kunas.

This family konoba (tavern) has been open for almost 40 years. The space is very pleasant, decorated with objects that were once used by all Dalmatian families and with handicraft objects, but not over the top. In the homely atmosphere, the service is quick and decent. The offer of dishes is shifting slowly from rustic towards a more modern one, whilst retaining all the good aspects of a traditional diet.
