Thankfully it had just opened a couple of days before!. We toured the Elafiti Islands with Niksa of Dubrovnik Boats (amazing company). They had been... read more

Villa Ruza is a beautiful place with big terrace. Great view to Elaphiti islands and Dubrovnik surroundings. I recommend this place to everyone. Great food (I tried fish but also meat) and everything is fresh and well prepared. Good croatian wine. Beach is close to this place so before you have lunch I recommend to swim in perfectly clear water-Adriatic... More

Arrived by boat to this unique wonderful restaurant. We had an amazing lunch and excellent service. Everything was well prepared and fresh. Fantastic fish and some of the better Mediterranean food we have had. Stunning views and unique setting make this a must.

An amazing restaurant. Unfortunately, we dined here the night before they were closing for the season so had a limited menu.

My husband and I had an early dinner at Villa Ruza after sailing around the different islands for the day. Joseph was our waiter, and an excellent one at that! I ordered the pork, which was phenomenal, and my husband the fish, which was quite a production. He throughly enjoyed it. The views from where we dined were amazing. This... More
