The Story of Gastro Mare

Over 30 years ago when Ante Bjelančić Bjelko ventured from his birth village Kobaš into the world looking for success and the opportunity to establish himself as a great chef, the tightness of the bonds he had with that rustic part of Peljesac was unbeknown to him.

After years spent working in America, short return to Dubrovnik followed by sailing on board various cruisers across the Mediterranean he settled in Norway where he reached the peak of his culinary expertise while running one of the best Scandinavian gourmet restaurants. Despite everything the world had to offer, Toni found his peace in his beloved Kobaš where he can be seen today in his small yet enchanting restaurant Gastro Mare lovingly combining the culinary knowledge of his adult life with his boyhood memories into memorable, new, and vivid food experiences.
