We saw this restaurant while walking by the sea and we succeeded at making a reservation. highly recommend to book a day or two before cause its very busy. The food was great and the staff very responsive and hospitable. The best part was the...garden tho. Sitting in complete privacy surrounded by palm trees is priceless.More

The restaurant was located in a botanical garden, a really nice place and very romantic, but the food was terrible - that was to be expected from an overpriced and basic menu and disinterested staff. We ordered a risotto with prawns and squid with mangels...and potatoes and it was very bad - the risotto was not risotto, it was boiled rice with a few prawns, and the squids were not cleaned, full of sand, the potatoes and mangels were overcooked and not seasoned. There are many good restaurants in Vis, this is not one of them!More

The restaurant is set within a botanical garden which is a charming place to dine amidst the trees and crickets. The food is delicious (hake carpaccio and fresh fish) but the price tag was the highest on our week charter. Recommend if budget allows.

Worst place and service, I highly recommend not going. The owner and the staff were very rude and unpleasant. First we made a reservation for 7 people and 3 kids. When we arrived the table was for 14 people, we asked if they could please...remove 5 places because our reservation was for less people. They said no and when they brought the check we notice they charged for the places (they charged 14 even though our reservation was for 10 and they refused to take the places off) After they brought the food that was regular, the owner approach out kids and started shouting at them because they were looking at some bricks (literally). We had to leave the restaurant it was truly the worst experience. Please don’t go!! There are a lot of good options out there, this one is not worth your money or time.More

Villa Kaliopa is in an entrancing tropical garden. The tables are spaced out, under trees, and can be quite private, with lovely lighting. We didn't hear / see any mozzies, but had sprayed ourselves, & didn't get bitten - happy days! It was our anniversary,...& we started with a glass of prosecco while we looked over the menu. The prices were reasonable for such a stunning & classy location. We had the recommended cream of shrimp soup to start, & it was delicious. We wanted fresh fish, & were shown a tray of whole fish. We decided to have the Scorpion Fish, which is local, but new to us. The fish was huge, & beautifully cooked, then served at the table by lifting the fillets off. It was delicious, with white meaty flesh - a bit like a cross between red mullet & monkfish. Couldn't finish it, as it was so big. The service was excellent - we were never left waiting for anything. Our server brought us free dessert (excellent creme caramel), & 2 free helpings each of local grappa, to celebrate our anniversary! We felt really well looked after. Altogether, 2 glasses of prosecco, 2 soups, bread & oil, scorpion fish & fries (huge bowl) for 2, a bottle of Roki Vugava, & a bottle of sparkling water, re bill was 1200kn /€157More

Peca and his team did an amazing job with their wild fish menu. Very friendly place, unbeleivable botanic garden at its best and most of all, great choice of various food and wines no matter age or nationality. Each moment is a memory and taste stay...unforgetable. We were fortunate enough to be welcomed for dinner and brekfast and hard to say what is better. I enclose photo of breakfast as it almost ended and dinner I forgot to take a photo, which speaks for itself :-) Highly recommend as first and maybe only choiceMore
