Located among pines just above the seaside path beyond Bačvice beach, this oblong pavilion with large outdoor terrace has been a local culinary landmark for decades. Formerly known as šumica, it was long considered one of the top restaurants of the city - a status it looks set to keep following its recent relaunch as the Mediteranium restaurant and lounge bar. People who remember the šumica of yore will be surprised to discover that it's the lounge bar that takes up most space, with the restaurant side of the operation now squeezed into a self-contained white cube at the end of the building. The kitchen continues to aim high, however, with a menu that combines Dalmatian tradition with the contemporary trend towards imaginative juxtapositions and thoughtful presentation. Everything on the menu is grouped under jokey English titles (starters come under the heading 'Sex and the City') but don't despair - the food here is anything but lightweight. Signature dish is the škartoc - fish or meat cooked together with herbs and vegetables in a paper pouch - although you can also opt for more straightforward fillets of fish or steaks. Desserts are well worth leaving room for - Mediteranium's semifreddo of ice cream, honey and crushed nuts is a heavenly way to round things off. Reason to linger in the lounge bar is provided by DJs and cover bands on Fridays and Saturdays, Tango & Latin evenings on Sundays.
