I’ve never been to an Aman that didn’t delight in the food department, and this property was no exception. Breakfast and lunch were served at the piazza, located towards the back center area of the island. All the seating was outdoors, and there were a few different areas where you could sit.
We always chose the beautiful tables near the water.
Breakfast was included with our room (and I believe is included with all rates here), and was served from 7AM until around 11AM. The menu read as follows, and you could order as much as you wanted:
They had really good iced coffees that we ordered every morning.
Then we were always brought a basket with some toast and pastries, along with homemade jam.
Over the course of our stay I tried the homemade toasted granola muesli, the oatmeal porridge, and the bircher muesli as starters.
I know I’m boring, but I ordered the omelet every morning as my main. It was that good.
We also shared the lemon ricotta pancakes one morning.
Ford also had the brioche french toast.
What a lovely way to start every morning.
Lunch was served at the same restaurant (with flexible hours), and the menu read as follows:
We were always offered some sort of focaccia bread to start, along with a different dip.
One day Ford and I got a funghi pizza and chicken souvlaki to share. That was actually the only lunch we had at the hotel.
Then dinner was served in the restaurant overlooking the water by the pool. There was an indoor bar area.
Then there was a huge outdoor terrace, if you wanted to enjoy a drink before or after dinner.
There was also an indoor dining room, which you always have the option of eating in, though I don’t think anyone would voluntarily eat there when you could dine outside. However, it was raining for two of the nights of our stay, so that’s where we had dinner those nights.
The main dining area was the incredible outdoor terrace.
Dinner with a view, or what?
The view got much, much nicer than that, even.
Dinner with even more of a view!
The dinner menu read as follows:
There was always a bread basket offered shortly after we got to our table.
Over the course of our stay we tried quite a few different things.
Below are pictures of some of the appetizers.
And the mains.
And lastly dessert, which we only had one night.
I’m most definitely not a food critic, and there are only so many adjectives I can use to describe good food, so suffice to say that we found the food to be exceptional across the board. The food certainly wasn’t cheap, though I didn’t think it was too terrible either.
I found the service at breakfast to be pretty hit or miss. The people working there were friendly, but not over the top. However, like at any Aman, they always knew our room number, drink preferences, etc., and we never had to sign anything (there’s a built in service charge, but no expectation or real opportunity to tip otherwise).
Meanwhile I found the service at lunch, and especially at dinner, to be exceptional. We were mostly being taken care of by Ljalgana and Dragan, who were so professional and kind.
In terms of other dining options, you can also dine at Villa Miločer, which is the part of the hotel that’s on the mainland (there are also eight rooms in that building — speaking of which, the villa is open year-round, while the island is only open from May until October). It’s my understanding that the menu is the same, it’s just a different setting. There’s also a restaurant called Olive on the mainland, right by the bridge leading to the hotel. It’s apparently somehow affiliated with the hotel, but not owned by it, but we didn’t have a chance to eat there.
Otherwise you can always dine in the nearby town of Budva, which had tons of restaurants. However, we were enjoying the setting of Sveti Stefan so much that we couldn’t bring ourselves to not have dinner with such a spectacular view.
This is such a magical hotel with food to match. This easily ranks as one of my five favorite hotels I’ve ever stayed at.
