This is not just a place to fuel up. This is an experience that will resonate with you forever. You have to book a small speed boat to get you there and back - how marvellous. Once there the staff are trained to serve and know what they are doing. The menu also demonstrates the chef and proprietors know what... More

Upon staying at the kalamota hotel, the restaurant is around 500 metres away. The setting is beautiful!! We arrived for our meal and taken promptly to our seat by a waiter. Our seat was exceptional with view that looked onto the sea and the mainland that when the sun is setting you can sit, relax and enjoy it. Our waiter... More

A friend recommended that we take a trip over to the island to dine at Villa Ruza, and I am so glad that we did. The restaurant arranged a private speedboat transfer for us which was really cheap between 9 of us, and half the fun of the evening was setting off on the water with the sunset. Once we... More

The restaurant arranged that Nico picked us up to bring us from Dubrovnik to the island. This unique haven of peace and serenity is a very romantic place! The food is delicious, the view is amazing and the staff is really friendly ! Just bring a jacket if there is wind. But totally worth it !

My husband and I took the speedboat (which yes, is very expensive especially when converting to Canadian dollars) but we decided to splurge! We had a lovely evening, the food was great, the service was nice (not exceptional, but good) the view was perfect and i was very impressed with my complimentary birthday cake with sparklers!

We had our rehearsal dinner here. We are from Washington, DC. We planned a destination wedding with D'Insiration (best wedding planner EVER) and this place came highly recommended. They definitely do not disappoint. The food was amazing. We had a party of 31 people with some dietary restrictions that were all easily accommodated. On top of excellent food and service,... More
