The entrance and atmosphere left us breathless. The multitude of palm trees provides a romantic and relaxing experience. Everything fell apart when we opened the menu, as the food selection was quite poor. For starters, we ordered a seafood platter which was a huge disappointment,...not just because the portion was small, but also because the flavors didn't harmonize well. For the main course, we ordered mussels and prawns which were oversalted and overly seasoned, a real shame for such good and fresh ingredients. Dessert was okay. The service was also a bit lacking as we weren't sure who our server was since different waiters kept coming to our table. However, the food arrived quite quickly. Overpriced and unoriginal dishes, despite the fresh ingredients. I wouldn't recommend it to friends, except for a stroll in the garden.More

Well we finally returned to this wonderful restaurant. We first visited over 19 years ago when Vis was a fairly quiet town, we sailed there several times over the next few years and always had a great welcome and fantastic food. Our last visit was...17 years ago and we were worried that in the ensuing years the wonderfully quiet garden would now be a busy place. To our utter delight, the restaurant had hardly changed, even the owner was still around and after a long chat he admitted that many people have told him to put more tables in the garden, but that he had resisted. We had a first class fish with an excellent bottle of wine, all in all a perfect 25th wedding anniversary meal. We do hope to visit more, but with not being able to sail there ourselves this might not be possible. I cannot recommend this restaurant enough, if you are looking for that romantic meal, look no further.More

We made a reservation for our 45th anniversary, and when we walked into the gorgeous garden setting, we saw there was only one table set up. The waiter told us there was a small wedding party of about 20 people on the patio, and while...the restaurant was closed to the public, they wanted us to be able to celebrate our anniversary in the gardens. We were so amazed, and after we ate, we went over to them and thanked them, and they gave us 2 bottles of Croatian wine as a gift! Such a special night. Not only for them, but for the food! The John Dory fish was cooked to perfection, as were the vegetables with it. We met the owner who wished us a happy anniversary, and our waiter was a gem. So sweet , and professional. I highly recommend this magical place on the magical island of Vis.More

If there was a paradise on earth, then it would be here. A magical place. Intimate atmosphere, hospitality, professionalism. Food, delicious, fine, home-made. The owner is kind, charming, professional. A place that offers everything from gastronomy to pleasure. To come to Vis and not visit...Kaliopa, as if you had never been to Vis.

The setting is beautiful and unique. The food, just “okay” and one of the most expensive tabs we’ve had in Croatia. One of us ordered the risotto. The chef needs to look up in a cookbook “risotto.” It’s supposed to be creamy Arborio rice with...flavorful broth and Parmesan cheese as a base. Then you can add shrimp, veggies, etc. This was plain rice with a few herbs thrown in for color. No flavor. The “chocolate cake” was a hunk of thick, hard fudge. Way overpriced for the quality of the food. The service was attentive. The wine was delicious.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.
