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.

I had the trout and I was blown away at how tasty it was. The host went out of his way to make sure we were treated like royalty. When I go back to... More

We stayed at the Kalamota resort nearby and booked this restaurant even though we were on all inclusive. It's amazing, great location/food/staff. Well recommended and the best food on the island.

Excellent offer and a must. Try to sit next to the sea, no matter the effort. Call as much as you think you have to, to keep the reservation valid, even ask if already reserved. Maybe I am a naive fool, but I think that they'll keep their word.

As we were staying at the only hotel on this amazing island we had a break from the hotel meals one evening and dined here. The relaxed atmosphere of Villa Ruza was fantastic as was the choice of food. It was served relatively quickly considering the preparation involved and was thoroughly enjoyable. All the staff were efficient and friendly and... More

We had dinner here on the last night of our holiday and we definitely saved the best till last. From the moment we arrived we were blown away by setting and incredible views.
