Actors, creatives and thirtysomethings come here for home-made food with an imaginative, Adriatic-Asian take on culinary fusion. The interior aims for chic modernity without going totally lounge-bar, while the background music is cool, jazzy but sufficiently unobtrusive to allow for earnest conversation. The menu changes with the season. Pauza’s wok-fried dishes mix Mediterranean seafood with Asian flavourings; although there are plenty of more traditional Croatian treatments of meat and fish for those who want something a bit more straightforward. Dishes of the day, chalked up on the inside wall, are excellent value at 45kn-70kn. Wines by the glass and the draught beer are equally affordable.
