Ate here twice. First evening was spoilt by lots of wasps. A family on another table had to ask to move as they were really being bothered by them. The second evening of eating there we had booked a table and pre-ordered the peca. Not worth the money at all,this was bitterly disappointing. In comparison to a peca we had had previously in Korcula, there was very little meat. Table reservations all seem to hit around the same time so the waiters end up being very busy and you then get forgotten.

I have been told this is the best of the restaurants overlooking the Bol harbour and promenade. It's the only one we have been to, so that may well be true. The setting truly is beautiful, but we found the food acceptable but nothing special. Excellent pommes frites and gnocchi, but the meats were of cheap quality. Salads were plain.

As seems to be the case with many of these restaurants, it is understaffed, so the only way to get the check was to start heading out.

Lastly, if you are afraid of wasps you might not want to go here. We counted seven around us and had to move indoors after a while. The indoor table was also great though, with a big open window towards the promenade and ocean.

Nice atmosphere, good idea to reserve a table in advance so you can sit overlooking the sea. My partner and I both had fillet steak - we were given huge pieces of the most tender steak I've ever had, seemed to be really very good quality. The only downside was that it was slightly undercooked - we asked for medium and the steak was definitely rare. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Good (and very cheap) house red wine.
We would definitely go back!

Had just a main course and a bottle of wine, but the food was terrible and the wine expensive.
Very disappointed.
