Located in the village of Saplunara on the eastern edge of Mljet, Stermasi offers comfortable, modern apartments set on a hillside overlooking a rocky bay. The adjoining restaurant is among the best on the island – the octopus salad is a triumph (stermasi.hr; apartments from L50).

Saplunara, on the eastern side of the island, has Mljet's only sandy beach, as well as the restaurant Stermasi, where you can enjoy a fantastic dinner of octopus and kid 'under the bell' (cooked under hot coals).

In the east is one of Dalmatia’s top restaurants, Stermasi, which has an awesome view (wild boar with homemade gnocchi L45 for two).
It's important to us to note that the most of the ingredients we use in our restaurant are from the island of Mljet and is organic production. So fruits, vegetables, are not treated with any pesticides or artificial fertilizers, and part comes from our own gardens. In our garden we grow 21 different sorts of organic fruit trees out of which we offer to our guetsts several like home made marmelade.
We are extremely honored to commend eco production of extra virgin olive oil which is common to the island of Mljet, and actually quite rare in the rest of the world.
We guarantee that fish, seafood, goat cheese that we offer are of the best quality and the quantities are limited.
