Had great octopus salad for an opener followed by grilled seafood platter. Waitress explained the difference between a first and second class fish: white meat vs dark meat.

We arrived early and both ordered the lamb chops which were delicious and we ordered grilled vegetables and peas alongside. As the restaurant filled up over the duration of the evening the service slowed considerably. There were only 2 people waiting and they... More

This is such a great place to have dinner, wine, and relax with a special person in your life. We had such a great dinner the first night, we went back the very next night for more. The food and wine are great, and the olive oil is too good to even talk about, just have to try it for... More

This is a lovely restaurant, but a bit out of the way. The seafood platter for two was lovely and the staff were very attentive.

Very good food here and delightful staff led by Rosa. We had the best Grrek salad I have ever tasted followed by the traditional lamb peak.

The Ranch restaurant is, unlike others in Bol, located at "inland". Therefore there is no sea view, on the other hand you are feasting in a nice garden. The staff was friendly with good English. The meal was average, a bit bellow our expectations (compared to other restaurants in Bol).

The first impression was very good, as we were politely welcomed and shown to a nice table. The waiter was very attentive throughout the evening and the sevice was excellent. The seating is outside, and some of the tables are interestingly secluded in a palm tree "forest". The rest are on a balcony in more tradtiiontal style. It was a... More
