Villa Ruza is not to be missed! The food and service are simply spectacular and the views are breathtaking. Definitely schedule a day to go to Kolocep and visit Villa Ruza - you will not be disappointed.

Visited villa ruza 9th August & knew it was going to be great experience when we were met at the pier by 'our' waiter Valentino which was a nice touch. The place just oozed class from the location, quality of food, and from the immaculate level of service....thanks Valentino!.Quality restaurant.

Hands down the most beautiful and romantic spot for an al fresco meal overlooking the sea, but you can find better food for less elsewhere in the region. We discovered the relaxed bar area on our first trip to Kolocep and were so taken with the place we decided to come back another day on the ferry to try the... More

We visited Villa Ruza twice - initially for for lunch and then a week later for supper. On both occasions the food was delicious and the service without fault. The owner was happy to arrange a private boat transfer across from our hotel to the island and from the moment we were met on the private jetty and led to... More

Unfortunately the evening we went was very blustery and so our view of the sun set was slightly spoiled by being blow around. However the food and service was excellent and on a good night I'm sure it is glorious.

We visited one evening as a treat as part of our hotel stay on the island and we're not disappointed. The food and the views were magnificent and we were lucky to see beautiful sunset - it's well worth timing your visit to include this. We've vowed to bring all our friends here for an anniversary party if we ever... More

This was definitely the best restaurant that we tried during our 4 day trip to Dubrovnik. Great food and exceptionally nice views with a cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Maybe not the cheapest place but try it for lunch then. The service was perfect and after our lunch the kids could stroll off to a cabana in the shade. This is... More

We were visiting Kolocep island during our stay in Dubrovnik. We found- partly by accident- the lovely restaurant of Villa Ruza. This was undeniably our best culinary experince during our whole holiday in Dubrovnik -- or even one of the best ones ever. The staff in Villa Ruza was very professional, welcoming and helpful. The athmosphere and the vue was... More
