“Delicious fried calamar and sardines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

We spent a few hours in Bol (if it was summer I would definitely spend a few days there).
Not having consulted Trip Advisor before we were lucky to find one of the best restaurants in this town. We had a lovely lunch along the marina...everything was tasty. Especially loved the calamari, although since sardines are a specialty of the region wanted to try and it was also very good.
Our waiter, a born joker, was really pleasant.
The cost including a salad and non alcoholic drink amounted to $35CAN. Might seem high at first but eating in Croatia does not come cheap!

“Hot stone steak was yummy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2013

I found that in Croatia, ordering a steak "Medium" it would arrive essentially seared on the outside and raw in the middle. (I usually order Medium Rare at home.) Being able to cook my own steak made this the only steak I had in Croatia that was cooked the way I like. We had no issues with service as in other reviews.

“Good food, great views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 4, 2013

Lovely setting right on the harbour with plenty of seats. Good choice of menu - several vegetarian dishes for me which can be hard to find in Croatia. Food was excellent and staff friendly & welcoming.

“Astonishing view of the port!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

The food is ok, the waiters are too busy to give you any extra attention. The view of the port is simply unbeliavable.
