Augusta Insula, Zaklopaticsa, Lastovo
Located in the bay of Zaklopaticsa on the island of Lastovo, Augusta Insula is a busy establishment with its own micro-marina that offers full service (water and electricity) to patrons of the restaurant. Service is excellent and friendly with one of the proprietors on hand to l help you moor against their well appointed pontoon.
Once safely ashore you will be directed up the steps to the restaurant where you can place your order for dinner. While there is an a la carte menu, you are encouraged to choose from one of the specials of the day, which are cooked for your whole crew. Bite the bullet here, its a great way to eat and the quality of the food is excellent. We were offered a choice of Lobster pasta (one of our neighbouring tables had this and reported it to be excellent) or a mixture of fish cooked in the local style, under the bell.
This turned out to be an enormous flat pan of mixed fish including squid, octopus, shrimp and white fish cooked very slowly in white wine on an outdoor fire under a giant ceramic (bell-shaped) cover.
We were pointed to Augusta Insula by a Czech crew we bumped into in Komiza (Vis) who recommended we make Lastovo (at the extreme of range for a weeks cruise either from Split or Dubrovnik) our next stop especially for this restaurant. We returned the next year to do just that and were not disappointed.
Not only is Lastovo spectacular, but the food was beyond excellent and we recommend the Augusta Insula very highly
