The Best of What’s Around says it all. This restaurant has one of the most unique experiences you will ever have. Arriving at the restaurant by boat was surreal. Being greeted and shown to our beach chairs and then offered a wonderful glass of sparking...wine started our romantic meal perfectly. All of the food and the paired wines were creative, perfectly prepared and delicious. Yuliia was impeccable with her service and was very knowledgeable about the menu! The price is reasonable for the service and location. I believe this is one of, if not the best all around food, wine and restaurant experience I have ever had. I f you are in Croatia within 2-3 hours drive , do yourself a favor. Make a reservation.More

Overall, my experience at the resort in Dubrovnik was fantastic. The attention to detail in every aspect of the stay was truly impressive. From the stunning views to the impeccable service, this resort exceeded my expectations. I must particularly commend our waiter, Julia, for her...exceptional hospitality and attentiveness. She made our dining experience even more enjoyable. I highly recommend this resort for a memorable and luxurious experience in BowaMore

We rented a boat of trip advisor and set sail for here, it is a beautiful remote bay with the clearest sea water I have ever seen. From when we pulled up we were welcomed by the restaurants boat driver who tied up our boat...and a lady who greeted us and got us drinks. The restaurant is so peaceful and the food is delicious, the staff is very friendly and helpful. There was other guests that came and gone using the restaurants boat service. If you are looking to treat someone or yourself I would recommend this. Research prices before going but it is worth it and make the most of the bay. Make sure you bring swim clothes as well and take a dip in the clear water.More

We had an absolutely perfect day. The scenery, the service, the food - all amazing. The transfer to and from the restaurant by boat - all luxury. What an experience. We will be back. Thank you.

What a lovely spot - crystal clear water - beautiful setting, superb food and service! We reserved a private table for our party of 10 - well worth it as we had a space for ourselves and could pace the incredible meal over several hours!!...The only reason I didn’t give it a 5 star was because of the music that was blaring the whole day…call me old fashioned, but I think hearing the lap of the ocean and the conversation of my lovely colleagues was better than electronic music!! They were very accommodating and turned off the speaker by our table and later played quiet jazz music instead which was much better, but still unnecessary. Otherwise a lovely outing with work colleagues. Service by Yuliia and her colleagues was impeccable.More

Spent an afternoon here for lunch. And it basically turned into sitting at the restaurant for three hours and only got food in the last 15 minutes. This is really just an overpriced, overhyped place that you should avoid at all costs. They do a..."tasting menu" which is very generic and just a money grab. It's a great looking place but the pretentious attitude of the staff combined with the terrible service with so so food just doesn't justify anything about this place.More

I brought my fiancé to BOWA for his 40th birthday celebrations. From start to finish it was just amazing. BOWA private boat picked us on on time. The views as you arrive are beautiful. We were greeted by the hostess as shown where to sit....Lunch was delicious and our waiter explained everything for us. We stayed all day until last boat 5.15 and we didn’t want to leave. To top it off my partner left an expensive pair of shorts on his bed. And the lovely hostess dropped them off to us at our apartment that very evening. I recommend anyone visiting Dubrovnik makes BOWA a must ❤️More

Totall amazing! We came here for my birthday celebration with my family. We took the boat from Brsecine Harbour, which was great fun and a brilliant way to start the afternoon. We booked a terrace table. We had the table all afternoon and were looked...after from start to finish by Laura and the team. Everyone was amazing. Perfect hosts, attentive but discreet. The food was delicious, the best quality fish. The swordfish tartare and oysters were amazing. The teens all swam during and after dinner. The atmosphere was relaxed, not at all stuck up or stuffy. It was just the perfect day. Thank you all at BowaMore

Every step of the way, the entire experience was beyond and above expectations. I was doubting the reviews as they were so good… well, they proved to be true! The boat ride from the port (near where our cruise ship was dock) is a luxurious...affair yet a wonderful experience. Our captains …and the boats were so nice. Then, the arrival in BOWA is magical! Everyone is welcoming and laid back. You immediately feel warmly welcome. The food is simple yet excellent, high quality and so fresh. The entire setting is out of this world. We spent hours at our table eating and enjoying the vibe… and hours on beach chairs… swimming and just soaking in this magical atmosphere…we were the very last guests to leave the place… and wished we could stay forever!More
