The roots of the famous Mljet’s cuisine date back to the Romans. The farmers menu, now available to all visitors and its inhabitants, was once guarded by monks on the island of St. Mary.  The specificity of the menu lies in the abundance of high-quality island fish and other seafood. Since ancient times, Mljet’s residents use collapsible fishing trap for catching fish, a fishing gear made completely out of natural materials. Of course, Mljet’s gastronomy expands to meat dishes among which bucks are a specialty. In addition to meat, and thanks to a great care that includes eating herbs, goats provide premium goat cheese that is kept in olive oil in containers known as oysters. Its sunny valleys are filled with vineyards and fields full of tasty vegetables, the perfect addition to already delicious meals.
