“Good food, friendly staff and good prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

During our 1 week stay in Bol we ate at Mendula 3 times. We really loved the atmosphere there, the friendsly staff, the good service and the good food. It is a very buissy restaurant, so we normally came a bit later than the big rush around 8 so that we could sit for a while. After every meal they offered us a dessert or a typical Croatian drink/shot. They also have a salad bar with fresh salad and a really good dressing.

“Fabulous local restuarant!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013 via mobile

Family run restuarant, excellent value- salad bar (complementary to start) followed by a fabulous fish platter. Would highly recommend if you are staying in Bol.

“Very romantic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

Very sweet, very friendly family run restaurant. Very popular to book or be prepared to wait a litte but then you can always relax and have a drink first. I had freshly caught fish, remember when ordered they charge by weight so on the menu it will always look more expensive than it is, my sister had a steak and both were cooked to perfection. Nice touch with the free liquours. If I had more time on the island would have returned. Great value for money too.

“Family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

What a place. Found this place on trip adviser. Food typical. (No great food in Croatia). Friendly, comfortable, location.
I will return as the food was very nice. Tight. But got to meet fabulous people. I produced a credit card to pay and discovered that they are cash only. Suggested we came and paid them the next day. We met a couple who had been for the first time a few days prior and were caught out. They made tonight for 2 nights ago. What can I say. You would never get that anywhere. Loved the place, the atmosphere and staff. Family run, good food, nothing fancy and the house wine is great. Most of all they make an effort to accommodate everyone who walks up their stairs. For Croatia that is rare. Go for the unique experience and if you are a foreigner it is nice to be treated well for a change.
