We had a 3 course dinner, the night started great after the lovely older lady welcomed us to our table with a wonderful view. As the night went on we met her son, the restaurant manager. They had a curious but funny dynamic, giving the...place a lot of soul. They made every guest feel as comfortable as can be, as they displayed their detailed knowledge of how the food was prepared in every language imaginable. The food was delicious, every detail made just as it should be. Definitely recommend the swordfish steak, which paired great with motar and potato on the side. The rogač cake was out of this world. Make sure to come before nightfall to get the full experience since the view from the terrace was beautiful.More

I had such a wonderful experience. I try to avoid eating meat so ordered the homemade macaroni with goats cheese. I’ve got used to adding salt and pepper to my food as I find a lot of food is too simple or under seasoned in...Croatia. This was perfectly cooked, amazing pasta, garlic locally grown and goats cheese locally made - absolutely packed with flavour and cooked with skill. My waiter was passionate about the food and wine and had a huge amount of knowledge - he educated me a lot about the local grape varieties. You can tell that everything about the restaurant is done with a lot of love and pride. I echo the other reviewers here who have said it’s the best food they’ve eaten in Croatia. It’s not the cheapest restaurant but it’s great value for money, the whole visit felt like a luxury experience.More

I think this could have been our best meal on our sailing trip from Split to Dubrovnik. We were the only Catamaran in the small bay and this was the only restaurant to eat at. We started our meal outside, but due to rain we...had to move inside. This is a family owned restaurant and everything about the meal and evening was perfect. Our captain had not been here in 5 years, but he knew we liked smaller out of the way places and this spot was perfect.More

We spent 2 wonderful evenings in this great restaurant. Both dinner were excellent and we felt very comfy and lovingly looked after from Adrijan and his family. I can honestly highly recommend it. The view over the bay is fantastic and you will enjoy it.

This is ‘an experience’. Food really is top notch. It isn’t a place to relax though. The owner’s pride in his place is very full on. You MUST appreciate everything.

Whenever I'm on a boat in the south of Croatia, I try to visit Stermasi at least once. The place and the food are always amazing, but the real gem is the approach and professionalism of the staff. I keep my fingers crossed for them...and I always like to come back here.More

Adrijan and his family have produced an experience that is second to none. You can immediately tell how much love and thought has gone into every aspect of this restaurant, overlooking the sea on the Eastern end of the island of Mljet. First and foremost,...the food is excellent. We tried the cuttle fish risotto and the wild boar gnocchi. Both were exquisite. The wine from just outside Zagreb was a perfect match. We weren't rushed and the service was attentive but not intrusive. Having eaten all over the world, we quickly agreed this went into our top five meals, ever. The island is small and lovely to drive, so wherever you are staying, make a reservation here and your tastebuds will be rewarded, as well as your soul.More

Nice people but unfortunately totally overpriced and tiny portions! For a dinner with 7 people we paid more than 4.000 Kuna. The vegetables you could count with two hands and hardly filled the plate. The tuna carpaccio was a few grams…. Hopefully they will change...their policy.More

I came to the restaurant on recommendation, I heard all the best about it: from the food, the ambiance and the service, but when I got there I was very disappointed. I can’t say anything about the food because I didn’t try anything, and only...because the waiter (owner) of the restaurant was so rude and arrogant. I came at lunch time and he told me that all the tables were reserved , and that it remained to that I would have left without any anger because it's my fault that I didn't call) (there is always possibility finding a free table), but he told me that he will look and asked me if I was alone, I said that I am at the moment, but that my parents should join me soon and so I stood aside and waited for some feedback from him,but he was having fun with one table where three of them were sitting and he ignored me. I turned and left!!!! He probably thought I wouldn't spend much because he behaved like that !!!! I think that's very rude and unprofessional of a caterer who’s there as a owner.More
