Lovely spot near the sea.

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!

I had two meals during my stay in Croatia and both were excellant. Both meals were taken during the evening and the atmoshere at this restaurant was fantastic. Eating close to the sea was relaxing and romantic.

Just imagine - sitting by the water, watching the sunset with a cocktail....no better place to do so than at this lovely restaurant / bar .....the only downside is the occasional "entertainment" (noise) from the adjoining Hotel - but after a few drinks its not so obvious!

I've been to Makarska two times now and tried different restaurants. Il Golfo is still my favourite as it has a great location right on the beach, friendly stuff and great food.
