LD Restaurant’s cuisine
LD Restaurant offers Mediterranean cuisine and seasonal menus. With his culinary talents, chef Maro Gajski creates modern dishes that turn ordinary moments into special celebrations. Marko’s kitchen team always works imaginatively to create extraordinary dishes out of the catch of the day, wild island plants and hand-picked seasonal delicacies from the central Dalmatian archipelago. Diners can choose between a chef’s tasting menu and an à la carte menu. Favourites on the menu include foie gras ganache with pistachio, pickled apples and raspberry, and those with a sweet tooth will love the chocolate creme with whipped cream, orange, and almonds. Each dish can be perfectly paired with an excellent glass of wine, carefully selected by the in-house sommelier.
A bespoke gastronomic experience does not just include LD Restaurant's menu, but also includes visits to local food and wine producers and various wine and food tastings. LD Palace offers guests the opportunity to sail along the coast of the picturesque Korčula archipelago. A range of activities and visits can be arranged to guests’ wishes.
The Restaurant terrace nestles underneath pine trees just a few steps from the sea, stretching along the centuries old medieval walls of historic Korčula town, while panoramic views of the nearby archipelago provide an unparalleled Mediterranean feel. The indoor restaurant space with a magnificent sea view is ideal for getting closer to Gajski's kitchen – a place of inexhaustible inspiration and surprises – with just one purpose – to provide you with a rich and authentic Korčula dining experience.
Guests who wish to extend their stay can do so at the luxurious Lešić Dimitri Palace, located in the heart of the old town of Korčula. Celebrating the marriage between old and new, this exclusive accommodation has five unique and spacious suites, a Michelin-starred restaurant and a spa.The suites were designed by an Asian-Croatian team of architects and interior designers and are inspired by Korčula’s famous resident, Marco Polo. His travels along the Silk Road are rumoured to have started from this beautiful island. The highly personalised ambiance is characterised by exquisite detailing and handcrafted furniture in each room.
