Use to be really famous place to eat. Has been renovated since last time I was here, some years ago. Still good levels of service but quality of food become a bit too much commercial. Even though is a restaurant still worth the price you pay I think that use to have better times. For a regular dinner still good

No dislikes. The food is good well cooked. The staff are really excellent. If you are lucky enough to be staying in one of there excellent suites you will have a great time. I must add that booking really early is essential . You will love it.

Nice restaurant. Close to the sea, maybe 5 minutes walk, 1 minute with a car. Great steak and great service.

The first thing I have noticed was the very nice looking restaurant with great interior. The waiter was very nice with all meaning of his culture. The dish I have taken was risotto with shrimps- it was one of the worst dishes; bad choosing grains of rice, the shrimps amount weren't too big and their freshness was questionable, it was... More

The staff was very friendly and helped guide me in selecting a meal. It was a slow night at the restaurant so they were able to provide me extra attention. I felt as though I was in a Croatian home eating dinner. I would certainly go back again.

So let's start by acknowledging that in a coastal town, restaurants without a view are at real disadvantage. That said, Boban more than overcomes it. If the weather allows you to sit outside, you get the experience of dining in what feels like a cozy, elegant garden. The food is local and exquisite, cheeses and fish pate and very fresh... More

This was very popular and well-known restaurant in the socialist era. There was profit to business lunches. Today it is not even a shadow of that era except perhaps for decoration ... in fact very similar furnishings. However I must say that the food is very good, prices also :) The restaurant is located about 15 minutes walk from the... More

It's not easy to find --- located down an alley, off a side street, in a residential neighborhood --- but well worth the effort. The interior is bright, pleasant and very comfortable. In the end, however, you come to Boban for the food. The menu provides clues as to what to order. There are many entrees with "scampi" which we... More
