This review is more for location than for the food. Although the food was good, I'm a vegetarian and cannot fully review this place for it's cuisine. The staff was friendly and helpful and handled our large group very well considering they also had another group outside dinning right next to us. The boat ride to this restaurant and the... More

I booked a meal for my partners 30th birthday. We were staying the next island over (Lopud) and wanted something extra special. Ruder was kind enough to arrange a private transfer which was an experience in itself! Both the journey there and as we ate watching the sunset we had a starlit journey back! The service was fantastic. We were... More

My husband booked a meal here whilst we were staying here for my birthday. We got picked up from our hotel and given a private speedboat transfer to the restaurant and were met on the dock. The staff were fantastic- giving us recommendations and bringing a plate of fish out so we could see the fresh catches that day. We... More

This restaurant was recommended to me by the boat captain of the private tour I was on as well as the Game of Thrones guide. It was the perfect stop for a snack during my boat tour. The restaurant is located on an island and difficult to find a bad seat in the place. As I was there in the... More

It was my wife's 50th birthday and I contacted Nikolina who owns the restaurant to ask if I could book a table. They were so lovely, they even offered to collect us from Hawaii Beach on the mainland FOC! When the guy who runs the boat taxi service let us down, Ruder picked us up in his own boat which... More

We stayed on the beautiful Kolacep Island which is 30 mins by ferry from Dubrovnik end-August. We fell in love with Villa Ruza thanks to its most perfect water-side location, the patio area is so beautiful, feels first class. We visited on two occasions - lunch on one day and dinner on another, the food was exceptional on both visits,... More

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent. Waiters were attentive but not intrusive and we felt very spoilt the entire time. Has drinks first at their lounge bar and dinner with the most amazing view. The restaurant had pre ordered a water taxi to take us back to dubrovenik but they let us... More

Had dinner here the setting, views and the food was wonderful. Best Tempura Prawns ever. Tuna steak and Fillet steak with mozzarella also delicious. Had a lovely evening here and would thoroughly recommend.
