Discover fresh food made with organic vegetables straight from our garden and other locally grown ingredients
If you are searching for a place to eat a tasty homemade dish created from organic and locally sourced ingredients, you’re on the right spot! Rajski kutak – Bindo is located right above Šunj beach in a deep shade of poplar trees. We grow our own vegetables right next to the restaurant’s terrace, so feel free to walk around the garden and check out those tomatoes you’ve ordered in the salad or zucchini you’re getting served with some grilled fish.
If you’re not hungry and you just want to get away from the sun, have a seat at the table or simply lie down in one of our hammocks and enjoy. Along with a selection of coffee, beer, wine, alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, we are quite proud of our cocktails which keep you refreshed on a hot summer day.
Lie down in a hammock and take a moment to inhale a deep sense of serenity in the shade of white poplar trees, with a fresh drink in your hand and a stunning sea view in front of you. No one knows how the seeds of these magical trees have ended up on Lopud and grew into 20.000 square meters of forest with no rivers or supply of fresh water. However, they did and rumor says that there is water beneath the fertile land and now they make the only poplar forest on the island and a great hiding spot for everyone who wants to simply relax and unwind under the treetops listening to the crickets’ summer songs.
What We’re Known For
We keep it simple
We believe that after a great morning of swimming in the Adriatic Sea and getting some well deserved time at the beach, one should enjoy a tasty meal. This is why our dishes are prepared from locally sourced ingredients in a simple yet yummy way.
We keep your belly full
If you’re up for a treat, make sure to try one of our “under the bell” specialties – octopus, veal and lamb. If you haven’t tried peka (“bell”), you’re missing not only a really tasty meal, but also a piece of Croatian culture, which involves roasting the food over open flames using a wrought-iron baking vessel. Meat roasted under the bell is juicy and tender, with a distinct flavour.
We keep them coming
A summertime cocktail has a single but very important purpose: It makes you feel cool in a very literal sense. So, check out our list of the best summertime cocktails and let us mix one up for you to enjoy while lying in a hammock in the heart of the woods.
Family Svetac has been offering homemade meals on Šunj beach for three generations. The owner of Rajski kutak – Bindo is Hrvoje and I utilized years in bringing this special place in the woods to its feet with the help of my parents and siblings. My father Duško had previously run a restaurant “Eden corner Bindo” at the Šunj beach. The name Bindo is actually nickname given to my grandfather who worked on Šunj beach during the Communist era, and was known by locals and the travellers for his wide smile and big heart. Many things have changed on Lopud since then, but Bindo remains a place where you can expect to be welcomed by warm loving people and a well prepared meals.
A real little paradise
It is located at the end of the path after the beach (2 minutes walk) everything was perfect. We ate fresh tuna which was caught in the morning with fries, it was cheap, perfectly cooked and just delicious. The staff was really really lovely and made the experience even better than it already was. The little extra: you can take a nap in the hammocks just after eating. A word of advice, don’t stop at the first beach bar you will find, come here it is well worth it.
Best spot in Lopud!

Amazing little gem
We went here for lunch when we were at Sunj beach. Restaurant is located in very nice quiet garden, full of trees. Staff Is very friendly. Meals were fantastic. In comparison with restaurants in Dubrovnik or Gruz it was a big portion of food for good price.
