A notch above the other restaurants on Mljet, Okuklje is partly named after its location, by a jetty in a sheltered bay on the north coast of the island. Not satisfied with churning out Dalmatian standards to undiscerning tourists, the Okuklje Maestral creates its brodetto with scorpion fish, sources its mussels from Sobra and, if you phone ahead, can provide peka dishes too, lamb or octopus slow-cooked for hours under hot coals. You can watch your food being prepared in the rustic open oven, tables ranged around the elevated vantage point of a roof terrace, providing far-reaching views of Okuklje Bay as you dine.
