Definitely worth a visit, one of our best meals in Bol and the restaurant has beautiful gardens. A must visit, particularly for a romantic meal.

We went there on the second night of our vacation in Bol, and were so impressed that we decided to go back after two days.
The location is simply beautiful: we were seated outside, under a nice veranda overlooking the garden, not far from Zlatni Rat beach. The place was full both times we went there, but it was very quiet anyway, which isn't often the case in any other restaurants in the center of Bol.
Upon our arrival, we were welcomed by a very kind waiter who speaks perfect English (and German, from what I could overhear from the next table). All ingredients are sourced locally, and all dishes are prepared according to tradition. We had salted anchovies, which were extremely fresh and served with olive oil and cherry tomatoes: simple, but just perfect. Then we tried the renowned Dalmatian ham, and that was the best we had on the island. On my first night here I had the mussels cooked in white wine, whereas the second time around I tried the grilled salmon with ratatouille, and I both dishes were delicious. My husband had the grilled veal with baked potatoes, which was cooked to perfection.
There's a good selection of local wines, which you can also order by the glass.
As to prices, it might be slightly more expensive as compared to other places in central Bol, but it is worth it: for the top quality of the food, for the ambience, and for the staff's kindness.
Don't forget to make a reservation, otherwise you won't be a able to get a table as they're always fully booked.
Congratulations to the chef and all the staff for the best meals we had in Bol!

My husband and I visited this restaurant last night. We didn't had a reservation, but were lucky to get a table. Keep in mind this restaurant only has 8 tables under a roof (so if raining, very limited space). There are another 6-8 tables under trees. Many people were not lucky and needed to leave. This restaurant is located a bit out of center, with a lot parking possibilities. The staff was very friendly and the food was good. It might take a bit longer to get your food, but for us this was acceptable. I would recommend this restaurant mostly due to the nice surrounding it has, dining in open space between olive trees. Someone has put a lot of thinking in the interior/decoration and made this place a small heaven.

We were recommended this restaurant however the food was awful! The fish was not fresh and the potatoes were hard. The management is also very rude. Do not waste your money coming to this awful restaurant. The plants are however nice.
