Meaning 'cultivated', Arva is Aman's tribute to the earthy, heart-warming dishes of Italy at select Amans worldwide. Montenegro’s incarnation is situated on the island of Sveti Stefan with two stone terraces offering breathtaking views across the bay.
Arva’s menu takes the familiar flavour combinations of Italian gastronomy and spins them in exciting new directions. Expect an array of fresh pastas and risottos; sea bass, octopus and rock oysters direct from the Adriatic; and pasture-fed beef from northern Montenegro. Showstopper sharing platters are a speciality, with signature dishes including three-hour braised octopus, herb-roasted organic chicken and fish al cartoccio.
At Arva, every ingredient tells a story. Aman Sveti Stefan’s Executive Chef and his kitchen team travel to markets and producers across the country to source their produce. Back in the island kitchen, these hand selected ingredients are treated with a combination of traditional Italian gastronomic reverence and inspired modern innovation.
Thanks to its fertile soils, varied microclimates and Adriatic waters, Montenegro is blessed with an exceptional range of fresh produce and local seafood, showcased on Arva’s menu. Paired with the region’s one-of-a-kind wines, these seasonal, sustainable and locally sourced ingredients are combined with imported products from some of the most respected niche suppliers in Italy.
