This summer, I was in Bol for the first time with friends. I looked at the recommendations on Tripadvisor and we decided to have lunch at Taverna Riva. Definitely the right choice, we were frequent guests for the next few days. The food is excellently...prepared. Whatever you decide whether it is seafood specialties or some meat, there is no mistake. Everything is a complete hit. The owner is very kind and professional, as is the staff. They all function as one. They also offer a large selection of wines that they recommend depending on the food you have ordered. And the sea view ... it's just a special story. All praise and recommendations and see you again for sure ;-)More

This is real enjoyment! Tasty Dalmatian prosciutto that melts on the palate. A beautiful tavern that offers phenomenal food, because even if you are not hungry, the smells that spread and look at a plate are enough and you get hungry immediately. For a complete...experience, there is also good wine and a unique view of the sea. The staff is always there, very friendly and always at your service. The overall impression is a clean five and see you again for sure!More

This island is incredible in itself and this restaurant is a little gem on it. Amazing view, lovely setting, great service. I had black risotto to start which was my first time trying it and it was incredible. Then I had grilled octopus tentacle for...main and it was one of my favourite dishes I’ve ever eaten. My boyfriend had the fried calamari and that was also amazing. Couldn’t recommend this place enoughMore

We came here for a dinner and ordered spaghetti bolognese. That was the worst meal I have ever tasted. It was tasteless, watery with a very strange smell. I couldn’t even swallow a one single bite. We told our imptession to the waitress who was...uniterested, unhelpful and unkind. We wanted just to pay the bill and walk away as soon as possible. The waitress called her superior or even a chef (I’m not sure) and that man was really unpleasant blaming us for his disastrous meal which was inedible. I wouldn’t reccommend this place to noone!!! Few meters behind there is few really nice restaurants with great service and stuff so no need to lose your money and time with this place!!!More

The place is very nice and the fish was. Good, but we had better quality at a more convenient price.

Nice view, had a burger and fries here, it was inedible with a limp salad . There are many better places to eat , this was also expensive even if it had been any good. It’s a fine place to have a drink and that...is itMore

The food was delicious and the service on point! Matej did everything with a smile and even brought our appetizer to share already split onto two plates - not many restaurants want to do that generally or take the time to dress two plates without...you even having to ask. Super friendly and beautiful setting - ask for a table seaside!More

We ve been in Croatia for a week and so far this has been my best meal. I had lamb stew with gnocchi. The waiter who was fantastic, sorry I didn’t get his name, said it was actually their take on pasticada. It was the...tenderest lamb I have ever had. We had a free tuna pate starter and free cherry liquor. Others had grilled octopus and a pasta dish. The food was also fantastic but the waiter was the most attentive I have ever been served byMore
