A great experience that we went back multiple times. We spent two weeks on the island and went to the 3 restaurants in Rovenska, along with all of them in Veli Losinj and some in the Mali port and Bora by far exceeded all of the. Every place you go to will have fantastic fish (and pizza since its so popular there). But Bora gives you that along with local Wild Boar and Truffles on most dishes. Also, the chef makes his special "Creamacello" for an after dinner aperitif. Fantastic. Chef came out and had. A glass of wine with us multiple times. Excellent experience. Also, the manager/waiter was personable, helpful, and super friendly. Can't wait to go back.

I organized in Bora bar group dinner for eight on a relaxed early May evening. Oh what a dinner. Starting from tuna and octopus carpacio through main pasta based dishes to perfect truffles enriched desert it was pure gourmet joy.

Waiter was relaxed and professional, just as the owner and the chef who came to say hello to all the guests at the end of the dinner.

Only thing that cast a small shadow on perfection is a wine list. Ones on the end of the list pricewise do not mach even closely the food. We even had to send back house wine how bad it was. Ones that do match the food are too expensive.

Anyway we plan to sail again in that region this summer and Bora Bar will be on the top of our restaurant wish list.

The location is simply great and setting is charming. Menu is very interesting, nevertheless check daily offer which can be even more surprising. Great tuna carpaccio with truffles and cheesecake.

We had heard excellent things about this restaurant but were still surprised by the quality of the food, the service, the price, and the setting. Bora bar, with its Italian chef, is situated in a quiet bay (Rovenska) in Veli Lošinj, nestled between two other restaurants. The menu is extensive with both meat and fish dishes making use of local ingredients. We had tuna carpacchio with truffles, muscles in white sauce, and then both had the fish with truffles on a bed of courgettes. Superb food. Attentive and helpful waiters. Good wines (including several malvazija). The chef treated us to his own lemoncello which was the perfect end to a perfect evening. If you are staying on Lošinj - come here. If you want brilliant food in a great setting - make your way here. One of the best restaurants in Croatia today I would say! We will be back to try some of the other dishes on the menu (the pasta choices looked great too).

During our stay in Veli Losinj we have visited Bora Bar twice. The first evening we had sea food only, starting with octopus carpaccio, very good and tuna carpaccio with celery and truffle, magnificent. For primo we had selection of past stuffed with cheese and truffles, perfect. For the main meal we had fish filet baked in paper with mushrooms, very good. For dessert cheese pie with blueberries, fantastic, apple tart, excellent. The wine list is not large, but good, based on Istrian wines, we had Gambaletto white - Malvasia and red Teran. The second night we have decided to taste other meals. For starter we have tried bruschetta di mare, with small calamari and shrimps, very good. For primo we had two different pasta, one with spinach, other with boar, both very very good. For the main meal we had veal in lemon sauce with local herb. It was also good, but not as other meals and it was not in the line of menu. For example we would advice local lamb to be part of menu. For dessert we have tried chocolate soufflé, very good. The second night trattoria was full, consequently service was little bit slower, but it can change our opinion about this wonderful place.
