There's house-made pasta from an Italian-born chef on offer from 50,0000 rupiah at Mediterraneo, while thin-crust authentic pizzas are around 70,0000 to 80,000 rupiah.
Also on offer are steaks, fresh fish (Western and Asian takes), creative Indonesian food, and a variety of elegant looking and chocolate-intensive desserts. Excellent bolognese sauce ladled over ravioli (58,000 rupiah) surprised for such an outpost, and a refreshing and very large organic rucola salad with parmesan cheese and tomato (38,000 rupiah) really hits the spot after days of less-than-fresh warung or dive boat cuisine. Mediterraneo is also a swell place for a sundowner cocktail overlooking Bajo Bay and the harbour (well at least until they pile those containers too high), though you could also just sip on a fresh-squeezed, wine, mixed drink or a chilled bottle of Bintang. Big bean bags at the upper level of the restaurant and zippy free WiFi make this a popular e-mail check-in point, and a pretty good place to meet up with other travellers.
