We tried the recommended seafood risotto, black risotto ston and the grilled chicken, The grilled chicken dinner was enough for two. The black or cuttlefish risotto was excellent. The seafood risotto was tasty but not so easy to eat as the shrimp in typical Croatia custom were not peeled. Service was slow but we were not in any hurry,

On this restaurant we decided on the recommendation of friends. Interior is not very appealing, when you go in is quite worn out. Some effort should still invest in a restaurant that has this kind of food and a reputation as a high quality restaurant. Food was amazing!!!! Since it ran out of fish, and we came late in the...

It was so many people in place, it was so hot! But they gave us good place to eat, near ventilator ;) Service was good, very helpfull and fast. Food - from haven. If you like sea fruits and fish, Bakus is your next station. Prices are just fine. We will come again!

We stopped for a "Snack" while on a private tour. My husband wanted oysters and our tour guide said these were the best. We arrived just as they were opening, but they accommodated us anyway. My daughter (16) realized she was hungry. Aren't they always? So she ordered grille chicken breast and potatoes. 4 huge pieces of chicken breast and... More

If you don't have extra time don't go here. It takes time for meals to come, but not because of poor service, but because perfection takes time. Perfectly cooked seafood, charming and quality staff.

After sightseeing beautiful Ston Walls, 6 of us decided to have a lunch at this restaurant based on the great reviews but unfortunately we got very disappointed. Upon arrival none of the servants hasn't even welcomed us, and we took a seat at the first available table. We waited 30 minutes that someone approach to us to clean the table... More

We ate at Bakus 4 years ago and couldn't miss another chance to do the same. Wonderful service, well timed with courses and all just so fresh and tasty. We ordered 2 beers, 1/2 litre white wine, 1 dozen oysters, a Ston seafood salad and a Dalmatian ham/cheese platter with octopus salad. All were very enjoyable and cost 326 kuna... More

Ston is a famous place and therefore visited by many people – and they want to eat. Therefore, two streets are mostly dedicated to this aspect of life (or tourism) and Bakus is one of the restaurants. During the season, which happens to be all through the summer, the majority of tables are outside on the narrow street (there are... More
