Description: Located in Okuklje bay, this family restaurant gives you opportunity to combine home atmosphere with unique gastronomic experience. Started in 2004 as small traditional restaurant, Maestral restaurant had the same goal as it is today – to serve fresh food and to make guests satisfied. In 2012, young and perspective chef gave a new approach to local cuisine and started with modern taste of tradition. Each ingredient carefully chosen and prepared by educated kitchen staff, served and presented by brother and sister. Followed by famous phrase "A meal without wine is like a day without sun", Maestral restaurant gives you opportunity to taste famous croatian wines from all croatian regions. All of this in peaceful surrounding of Okuklje bay is something every man would think of when word vacation comes out. It's perfect stop-point for gastro-lovers also as for those who are not afraid to try something new and interesting.

This is our second visit and it didn't disappoint. We ate black risotto, cuttlefish, fillet steak, sardines, smoked fish with carrot puree & sea bass. The cuttlefish was a first for us but delicious. The smoked fish & particularly the carrot puree was another big hit. We finished eating with lava cake & sorbet. They did not disappoint. The night finished with walnut liquor. Yummy. Views are amazing too.

Traditional food in a modern way. Excellent menu, and also perfect Malvazija wine. Chocolate soufle for the desert is a must have!

My boyfriend and I found this wonderful restaurant thanks to Trip and our Lonely Planet guide and we couldn’t be more satisfied! The location is amazing, well organized and detailed, but the food is the best in the Island! The owners are a beautiful family who speaks a lot of languages and they will make yourself comfortable and entertain you with friendly conversations! But let’s talk about food...we decided to try the Fish Menu and the Meat menu, well they were both delicious and well presented as well. The chef (a young and friendly guy) really knows how to combine ingredients to create sublime dishes. At the end of the dinner we decided to book a table for tomorrow night as well. This restaurant is Definitely a must go if you want to eat a real proper dinner! If it was possible we would have given 6 points. See the pics attached to have an idea yourself!
Enjoy it guys!

The owner welcomed us and was exceptionally helpful with the mooring.

The food is first class, very stylish and appetising.

My fish was a little rubbery but very quickly a new portion appeared which was delicious.

Food presentation and originality brilliant, no usual Croatian staples here!

Definetly out of the ordinary well worth a visit, our bellies too full but the homemade deserts .... cantaloupe sorbet, fruit sabayon and chocolate souffle sounded fantastic! maybe next time!

We had the fixed price menu . Every course was delicious. This place has a chef compared to lots of places on the islands that simply have a cook.
We paid extra for the lava pudding. It was yummy.
This place wins hands down as the best place we ate and not any more expensive than other restaurant which are not a patch on this one.

We did reserve a table and our mooring in advance.

Great place will definitely visit again when next sailing .
