Restoran Lucica: Pucisca
The Restoran and Pension Lucica (10 double rooms are available) is located a short walk of about 10 minutes from the centre of the Village of Pucisca on the west shore of the inlet of Pucsica and offers an excellent mix of traditional Dalmatian dishes and fresh sea food of high quality at a reasonable price.
While this establishment is not within falling-distance of the visitor quay in the harbour at Pucisca it does have its own small quay (and swimming area for guests) and is a short tender journey away for those who do not want to make the walk from the town. Despite this walk it is a popular establishment, so much so it is worth reserving a table, and seen (at least by several of the visiting yachties we met) as being the best of the high end establishments around Pucisca, the one to visit if you want anything other than pizza and are only around for one night.
At the same time it is possible to dine on a budget as we discovered during our visit when we realised we had arrived without credit cards and only had 300kn in cash in our pockets. We managed 2 courses for two (one meat and one fish dish) with a bottle of mineral water and still had 50kn left over.
While the location is at some remove from the village, the walk out is enough to set up the appetite and the return is enough to aid the digestion without feeling like an imposition. The location meanwhile is quiet with excellent views of the main land and as the sun sets the settlement of Omis and its neighbours stand out as a spread of small lights in the dark mass of the shore side mountains, visible from the terrace where the Lucica’s out door seating is located.
Service is efficient but not rushed as food is delivered to the tables on trollies steered by what one must assume are teenagers from the village, smartly dressed in black skirts/trousers and white shirts/blouses and while the establishment is popular at no point will you feel rushed, your meal will be had at the pace you want to take it at.
This is a friendly family establishment that serves good food at good (and reasonable) prices in a great location and well worth the very minor effort of getting to.
