A really good restaurant serving local fresh food. I had grilled lamb which was so succulent, the others I was with were all equally impressed with their food,especially the Greek salad which was huge and crispy fresh with the creamiest cheese ever! The wines were very good too, again locally produced. The service was exemplary and very friendly by someone... More

Ate there at our last night in Bol. Place was not very busy (low season), we were greeted warmly and had no trouble communicating in English. Food was excellent, we had a Ranč platter as appetizer, then lamb (delish!) and the kids had mussels and pasta. Bread and their own olive oil was also served. The lamb came with a... More

Walking distance from our hotel in Bol, warm early autumn night for a seafood dinner. Our wonderful waitress, Rosa, welcomed us. We started with an octopus salad followed by the seafood platter with longostinos, mussels and two whole fish. Dinner was capped with a free cherry brandy at the end.

Could not fault any of it. Honestly didn't even expect the food to be as good as it was. Had Spaghetti milanese and the tomato sauce was so rich and tasty. The Mrs had the grilled Lamb and was very happy. The house red went down very well and the staff were attentive and most of all very personable. Then... More

We tried this restaurant on our final night in Bol at the recommendation of our apartment host and the tripadvisor reviews. WOW! We can see why this restaurant is regarded so highly. It is nicely located at the top of Bol in nice surroundings. Despite not having a reservation we still managed to get a table and thoroughly enjoyed our... More

We eat here on our first night, they were busy when we arrived but managed to get us a table. The staff are excellent and the food is just as excellent. The local red wine is great and the atmosphere is friendly. Would absolutely recommend this restaurant if your in Bol! We will be returning here again before we leave.

As this is the number one restaurant in Bol we couldn't not visit it! We dived straight in and had the Dalmatian platter to start followed by the fish platter for mains! The starter came with the most amazing "Dalmatian sauce" which was a garlic oil- I could have taken a bath in it! It was amazing! The main was... More

We popped down to Ranc on our first night in Bol after seeing that this restaurant topped the trip advisor ratings and it was a 2 minute walk from our apartment! We were lucky to be seated in one of the last tables outside and our hostess was absolutely delightful! Great with recommendations, conversation and a good laugh. Between the... More

Rosa is a rare old fashioned girl with the warmth of joy in encountering visitors from around the world. For her it is a pleasure to feed strangers and share the cuisine of her native Bol. She greets everyone with a smile and perhaps a touch on the shoulder, ensuring that all is well and every need is met. The... More
