Restaurants & Bars
Every place has its traditions. Every evening, after a day spent enjoying the sun and the sea, the guests of the Mlini Villas and Apartments walk down to the waterfront in search of a new spot among the full restaurant terraces to set off on a gourmet adventure. It could be the Astarea tavern terrace with its famous black risotto, the romantic terrace of the Oleander restaurant, or perhaps the newly renovated terrace of the Basilico Pizza Pasta restaurant, where pizzas and pasta dishes are prepared with a local twist. Whichever you choose, you won’t go wrong.
Mlini Villas and Apartments – Restaurants & Bars
In our restaurants and bars, you can expect top-quality food and drinks with local ingredients and Mediterranean flavours, with creative interpretations by chefs that will surprise and delight you.
Indulge in hedonistic experiences and find a break from summer activities in the shade of the Piano Bar terrace. While enjoying the panoramic view of Župa Bay, you can choose from a large selection of drinks, salads, and other light meals, sandwiches and desserts. The bar is a great place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee, dessert, or an evening aperitif. Guests can also enjoy the special offers of the afternoon happy hour.
Authentic experience, modern design and harmonious flavours, all in one place? Welcome to the Lobby Bar of Hotel Mlini! Designed with attention to detail and a lot of love, the Lobby Bar offers a relaxing ambience with a special view and a wide selection of quality Croatian wines by the glass. Satisfying any palate, the bar is an ideal venue for all wine lovers and gourmets to enjoy a break from an active day and a quality aperitif before dinner in one of our restaurants nearby.
In the authentic tavern, you can treat yourself to local flavours with fresh ingredients and fish and meat specialities. Guests can complete their gastronomic experience with a short walk to the river Zavrelje, known for its water that was once transported to the old town of Dubrovnik. Astarea Tavern brings the aromas and flavours of the entire region of Dalmatia into one space with a combination of romance, the sound of guitar, and delicious seafood dishes. Try black risotto, mussels, fresh prawns, or the traditional Dubrovnik dish šporki makaruli, or “dirty macaroni”.
Located on the beach, Oleander Bistro & Restaurant is the ideal spot for a gourmet break from the sun and fun activities by the sea. In the beautiful ambience, guests can enjoy morning coffee or an afternoon cocktail, as well as grilled fish and meat dishes. All of this, surrounded by beautiful views of the sea and islands.
Right by the sea, surrounded by Mediterranean vegetation and Dubrovnik stone, you will find a real oasis for lovers of Italian and Dalmatian cuisine. On the spacious terrace, under the shade, in addition to home-made pizzas with select ingredients, guests can enjoy refreshing salads and creative pasta, which are the perfect choice for a summer meal with friends and family. There is nothing better than spending time with your loved ones as the pleasant aroma of salt and the sea permeates the air around you, and you enjoy good food and your favourite drinks.
Just a few steps from your hotel, behind the walls of an old aristocratic villa that captivates with its Mediterranean charm, you will find a restaurant that will knock you off your feet with its local tradition and cuisine, locally sourced, fresh, and seasonal produce, and especially its modern flavours and friendly, unobtrusive service. If you can’t decide which pizza to try, take your time with a glass of local wine such as malvasia or teran. We are always up for trying something new, and you've probably never tasted a pizza called “Fisherman's Wife's Favourite Pizza”. In addition to pizza, the menu includes handmade pasta, delicious meat and fish dishes, and desserts, always with a local twist. Beer lovers will be happy to learn about our interesting selection of craft beers from local microbreweries. Basilico Pizza Pasta is part of the MaiEats Restaurants & Bars brand, which serves as a guarantee of fresh ingredients, delicious food, and a superb selection of drinks in a friendly, laid-back atmosphere.
