This is one of the rare occasions when I really struggled to understand why my personal experience seemed to be so much at odds with that of everyone else. Based on TA reviews, this would be the #1 restaurant in the whole Dubrovnik area. Therefore, dear reader, you will appreciate with what excitement we actually arrived there for lunch a... More

We spent a day on the island of Kolocep while visiting Dubrovnik and while there we went out of our way to make sure we ate at Villa Ruza. The food was excellent with plenty of flavour and the service was great. The surrounding view added to the experience perfectly. If you visit Kolocep I would definitely recommend eating at... More

Villa Ruza is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink or meal with your friends and to stay a little longer than needed. The panorama of the islands and the sea is just amazing and the restaurant nicely decorated. The food was good, I ate worse for more money in Dubrovnik but I also had better meals. We ordered a...

We have just returned from a week in Lopud where we took a boat to Kolocep specifically to go to this restaurant. It didn't disappoint! The food was beautiful and the view unrivalled. My partner enjoyed fish for starter and then steak ravioli whilst the chef created excellent vegetarian dishes for me. The service was exemplary and the waiter could... More

Did a bit of research and this well regarded restaurant turned out to be a short boat ride from our hotel. The restaurant organised a boat to pick us up from the pier of our hotel, and sped us to dinner. A waiter met us at the jetty and led us to a table with great sea views. The location... More

I organised a surprise dinner here for my boyfriend's birthday on our first night in Dubrovnik. All I can say was our experience was simply exceptional... Ruder, the manager was most helpful in organising eveything from the restaurant's side - including a wonderful speed boat to pick us up (Never had such a wonderful experience watching a sunset anywhere in...

We were extremely fortunate in that our hotel laid on a speed boat for us to take us to the restaurant. There is no doubt the setting is stunning. Breathtaking. The service was good but not breakneck speed. This is continental Europe. Dining is a pleasurable slow experience. Not a sprint!! So no complaints. There is no doubt it is... More

This was a great night out. Food and service first class the excitement of the speedboat transfer direct for our hotel jetty topped the night off. Ruder made the whole book process easy with email back and forward. Thanks again.

If you are fortunate enough to be visiting the Dubrovnik area during the season this restaurant is open (May-October), then it must be on your list of places to go. After a beautiful boat ride to the island of Kolocep on the Jadrolinija ferry, it was a pleasant stroll around the island with scenic views to the Villa Ruza Restaurant.... More
