We ate in this lovely restaurant on Kolocep Island on our recent family vacation in Croatia. The island only has about 150 inhabitants, and a single hotel. You can get a ferry there from Dubrovnik, but the ferry schedule doesn't make it easy to have a relaxing dinner, so we asked the hotel to arrange a water taxi for our... More

This place is a hidden gem with outstanding scenery. For those who are willing to discover excellent Dalmatian kitchen is a must to visit.

This place is amazing, the food, the sunsets, the service, all were fantastic. We were served by Valentino who recommended the beef and prawn starters, the catch of the day sea bass, which was dressed at the table, the Prosecco which was delish. The entire meal which was three courses each plus wine came to a very reasonable £100GBP It... More

On a holiday to Kolocep with my boyfriend the hotel staff highly recommended this restaurant for dinner one night, and it certainly didn't disappoint. We arrived at this absolutely stunning restaurant for dinner just as the sun was beginning to set - giving us breathtaking scenery in which to enjoy our dinner! The terrace gives the feel of Ancient Greece... More

The location of this restaurant was second to none with beautiful views of the setting sun. My food was delightful although elements of it could have been warmer, and this was the case for 3 of us. But service wasn't what we had expected. They tried to serve our mains before clearing the plates from our starters and one of... More

A bit fancy, this huge terrasse restaurant on a beautiful location. But they offer some great dishes and it's well done. Especially the Octopus from the oven is a delight. For us this is the second best option to eat on Kolocep.
