Closer to the centre of Bol this restaurant had a varied menu and was based in the pedestrianised part of the port, so there are no vehicles passing through, other than the odd boat. Lovely views, relaxed atmosphere in October, I can imagine it must be very busy in the summer. Will certainly return for another meal on our trip... More

Beautiful lunch Fresh fish cooked to perfection and the home made bread is a 'must'. Situated next to the habour, dont walk by. Would have the before picture but it was that good.

We stopped here after arriving by ferry from Dubrovnik around lunch time. The food was fantastic, especially the fish. The service was friendly and extremely efficient. Make sure you try the homemade bread!

Staff were very friendly here and service was very good. The food was good although the mixed grill I had on my second visit here was a bit disappointing and was warm but not hot. Setting was very nice next to the sea. I would definitely recommend this restaurant

In pretty much the prime spot in town, this restaurant delivers what you expect based on how it presents at first glance : organised and polished looking, despite looking maybe a wee bit kitschy , a wee bit "overdressed" vs. the tone of Bol/Brac. That's not to detract from the food, which on the two visits we paid was good(... More

We sat outside and the waiter forgot to bring out the bread that we ordered to start with. The mains arrived within 10 minutes so we didn't bother asking for the bread however in the end we still got charged for it which we brought to their attention. Food was ok, nothing special at all. They also didn't give us... More

We had the sizzling tuna on a hot stone and their home made bread. It was all fabulous. Eating fresh food overlooking the charming harbour was idyllic.

Meal for two adults and one child. Service was excellent. Food was ok and expensive for the quality. When compared to the rest of water front restaurants this would rate higher than the average score given.

Good location and great service. Drinks were served very fast. I had green pasta with shrimps and my husband ordered a plate with shellfish. I also had a cabbage salad which was tasty but expensive for a cabbage. Don't miss the home made bread, it's simply delicious.

Thank Lepeza
