Excellent food

We visited this restaurant last week whilst on holiday, I had a steak which is one if the best steaks I have ever had, so tender and cooked to perfection. Others in our group had fish which again was excellent. I can highly recommend.

We have been in this restaurant the last week, we ate a grilled scampi, octopus salad, tune steak and mussels. I just can say that even in italy is not easy to find a place where you can eat a fresh and well cooked fish like that.

I can only say the best words about this restaurant. I is good for anyone. For groups, for family, young or old people, people with disabilities. Food is delicious. Owner and staff are fluent in many languages. The owner is very experienced and has a good eye for things..You can book romantic lantern sittings on the jetty. Don't expect to... More

But the best bread I tasted was the one they serve at this place. Its the lady who is the chef who makes it, using local organic flower. So I... More

We travel to Croatia every year, the food in this country is to die for. However Il Golfo is our favourite place. Not only do they serve the best steak, they have an unforgettable scenery right on the beach. Their knowledge in wine is excellent and they have a selection of incredible Croatian wines. But the best thing about this... More

Great location, a little bit away from the busy streets. You can even get a table right at the shore, but watch out for big waves ;-) We went there twice, and it was mostly because the steak was perfekt. The first time we got our food quick, the second time we waited a long time (1 hour +) but... More

Food and service are of equally high quality. Super friendly and polite staff, and the view is nice. Just try to go around sunset, otherwise your view all be the people leaving the beach with children, etc.

Very friendly and helpful staff. Food was plentiful and tasty. You could sit out on the jetty if you didn't mind the occasional wet foot!
