Situated on the top level of the Bačvice beach pavilion, this Dalmatian-cuisine restaurant is one of the best places to try local fish, and especially shellfish – the Bota Šare business started out in the famous oyster-farming town of Ston, where the Šare family still has a restaurant. Ruffled sails are attached to the ceiling, a wooden boat acts as a bar and an open ice chest brims with fresh fish. Prices are more than fair – even the Bota seafood platter with lobster is affordable. The Dalmatian singers are laid on for locals, not tourists. There are sister restaurants in Zagreb and Dubrovnik.
