Excellent Fresh Grilled Seafood

Excellent restaurant with fabulous fresh seafood done on the grill. We had scampi and John Dory with grilled veg and these yummy crispy/puffy (fried?) potatoes - all perfectly cooked. Delicious brownie-like chocolate cake and grappa to finish. Fantastic local wine recommendations. View out over the... read more

Delicious brownie-like chocolate cake and grappa to finish. Fantastic local wine recommendations. View out over the bay and watching people fishing off the promenade was lovely (we had an outside table).... More

After taking a few moments to warm to the waiters dry sense of humour, we got on with ordering his recommendations. The local cheese and dried fish starter was certainly distinctive, as was the local red wine (much more powerful in flavour than some I've had). The risotto was nice, but maybe could have done with a greater variety of... More

Beautiful setting in the tranquil port of Vis. The one page menu may not offer a myriad of choices but who needs alternatives when the standard options are so delicious: you can't go wrong with the grilled fish (or squid), which pairs nicely with some local wine. Grilled veggies, garlic bread and potatoes made nice side dishes. Only one option... More

We went here based on the reviews. The only part of the reviews we agreed with is the service which was excellent: courteous, charming and informative. But the meal was expensive and not special - we had grilled fish which was rather dry and tasted strong served with grilled vegetables which were cold and what seemed like crisps. We also... More

We had to make a reservation to eat here as it is so popular we were turned away the previous evening, and it was absolutely worth it. The food was delicious, the service superb and the location perfect. A must for anyone visiting Vis.

Book early and avoid disappointment. The food here was delicious and plentiful and generous serves. There is a cross section of meat and fish however fish is their specialty. Be guided by the waiter who knows what goes it's what and how much to order. Our waiter nailed it. While there is an inside section that is lovely the view,... More
