We had to reserve a table to get the best view. We ordered Tuna beef with buttersauteed vegetables and it was just great. The chef made nice entrecote with baked potatoes for the kids and they loved it. Try the banana split for dessert. Nr. 1 place to eat on Lopud.

The location is stunning and the food is outstanding. The menu is varied and our server Michael was so knowledgeable that we were happy to follow his recommendations, consequently trying a number of local dishes. We were pleasantly surprised by the Croatian wine and enjoyed some excellent pairings. The oysters and the octopus were stand out dishes; we did find... More

We ate at this restaurant twice. The standout dishes we tried were the sea bass baked in salt, and the steaks, both excellent. You need to book in advance especially if you want a table overlooking the sea, highly recommended. We had excellent service the both times we dined there, great value for money.

Can't recommend this enough! We usually wouldn't return to the same place but visited this place twice during our stay in Lopud based on the great experience we had. Setting is perfect (we had the same table right on the sea front), wine is great, food is even better. Great service, definitely recommend!

We enjoyed a very pleasant meal here; good wine, great location and excellent food. You may wonder why the rating is not better? Well, as we had a few days on the island we decided we would return on our last night so looked at the menu outside again as you do, to book a table and got the attention... More

I was walking around along the waterfront trying to find a restaurant. This one really stood out and we sat down To give it a try. I got really lucky as the dining experience and food and service was awesome. It's been a few weeks, but the dish that stands out the most and is highly recommended, is the baked... More

This is the other place we returned back to during our holiday. Really, don't eat at the hotel, come here! I had an amazing veg risotto, my friend had the recommeded octopus. They do a pretty mean Kir Royal (along with other long drinks and cocktails) you can eat outside on the waterfront but you may have to book, but... More

If you are visiting the Island make sure to stop at Obala. Wonderful food, prices are fair (much cheaper than Dubrovnik) and the view is beautiful. Totally recommend it
