The view was nice, the food was surprisingly good for the type of location the restaurant has. The nice "desert" surprise was the cherry on top for the good service!

This restaurant is hidden from view, but well worth the visit. We stayed at the Dalmacie Hotel next door and visited Il Golfo several times. It lies adjacent to the beach and in the evening they set up tables on the pier and it is very cosy. The service is very friendly and helpful, thanks to Matija for all your... More

We found this place on trip advisor, but had a bit of the mixed expectations - if you read the reviews, some loved the place, some didn't. We belonged to the first group :D - we loved the place. The location was great - directly on the beach & not on the main strip, so the strolling people didn't look... More

We ate at this restaurant due to the great reviews on trip advisor however we were very disappointed and confused to find that the food really was not up to much. My partner ordered the bruschetta with truffles which arrived cold and not toasted?! The taste was horrible and truffles raw. I chose the marinated prawns with arugula as a... More

Good location for sure but there is not to much light to read the menu. Sometimes we felt the waitress is so tired she can not even speak.. But always smile would make you comfortable anyway... But the food was excellent worth to try. Price is reasonable so you can not be wrong with the place overall...

This must be the biggest meal suprise I have had in a long time. The waiter deserves much credit here - in recomending the best they could offer. The stake here is simply the best ever. With the greeck salad as a side dish - you can not og wrong. Any course we ate here was tasty and well done.... More

Delicious food, lovely atmosphere in the evening. Average prices for Croatia but it is well worth the trip as places on the 'strip' are busy and tacky. Get a table by the water if possible for the best views.

Great place on edge of beach, but second hand fish, grilled chicken, plenty of white bread, no fantasy and no real cuisine, value of food and wine..

If I could say one thing about this restaurant, it would be GO THERE! Perhaps one of the best dining experiences we have ever had. We reserved a table on the pier over the water. We got to see a lovely sunset as we enjoyed our meal. The food was really good. My boyfriend had filet mignon with truffle sauce... More

It was lovely to come upon this restaurant by the beach. The service was excellent and friendly and the steak really was so tender and exceptionally cooked to perfection. The food was so nice we went back for breakfast the next day where we were treated to fresh bread and fruit on the house.
