Our Story

     Restaurant Melita traces its origins back more than 30 years, when the young Mirko Prlenda came to Mljet from the Croatian mainland and decided to settle down in this rustic haven. An ardent supporter of the local culture from the outset, Mirko was amongst the first to invest in Mljet’s folklore music and other community initiatives, even when others didn’t believe in their success. History proved them wrong, and today the island is a lush natural and cultural paradise for visitors from the world over.

Mirko runs Restaurant Melita with the help of his family, to this day.

“A family run restaurant, one of the first ones on Mljet Island”
