The other contender for best restaurant on Mljet is hilltop Stermasi, overlooking Saplunara on the far eastern tip of the island. Catering mainly to those who plot up here by boat – it has free buoys and you just dinghy over – Stermasi provides much more than standard sustenance to sailors. Great care is taken over the seafood in particular, the squid delicious, the octopus succulent, the platter for two presented as if for a special occasion. Part of the secret is in the olive oil, own-made and sold by the bottle. Meat, most notably goat, is also available if you’re had your fill of fish. The wine selection is first-rate and you’ll be offered a complimentary house grappa to round things off nicely. Rooms and apartments can be rented on site.
