“What an experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

My boyfriend and I arrived at the island and there was torrential rain. When we finally braved the downfall and walked to the other side of the bay we were met by our waiter. We didn't sit outside but still our experience here was incredible. We had the most amazing food (soup of day and fish soup, followed by beef and scampi and scampi) and superb service. Our waiter was the best we've ever come across. My boyfriend really enjoyed his house white wine and the dessert wine.I would recommend anyone visiting Dubrovnik take a ferry and try villa Ruza.

“Pure pleasure”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Not much to say - great ambiance, professional staff and a great lunch. Definitelly try the vitello tonnato. We pre ordered the octopub under the iron bell - wich was good, just a bit dried out on the surface, but still soft and tasty. Appetizers were great and the desserts divine.
