Editor's note: U Maje i Tonke is closed with no immediate plans to reopen.

Maja and Tonka's kooky and creative restaurant makes inventive use of local ingredients and marries it up to modern, bistro-style presentation. The only potential drawback is its popularity – come here in August and you might have to wait for a table. The two ladies have built their reputation on cooking up Mediterranean main courses and nibble-food ('Dalmatian tapas' is the way they describe it) with anything that can be locally grown, caught or picked. Soups of the day, aubergines with goat's cheese, pasta dishes with home-made pesto and creative cakes are among the treats in store. There's a fantastic outdoor terrace with views of the swaying palm tops along the harbour. Closed; now reinvented as Konoba Aterina, still run by half the original partnership.
