On a rainy cloudy day we had a very nice meal! Especially the truffle pasta. Service was nice as well! If you are in the neighbourhood make sure to drop by this restaurant.

This restaurant has beautiful location on the beach, and a perfect view for the sunset. We had to wait for ever for our food, and the meat was undercooked when we finally got it. We got a new plate, but it was not worth the wait. Would come back for a drink or a glass of wine to enjoy the... More

This seafront restaurant located right below the Dalmacija hotel has one of the best ratings in Makarska. And they are wholly and utterly deserved. Ordered a black risotto and grilled seabass both entrees were excellent and could be accompanied by good choice of wines or cocktails. Service attentive and helpful.

After a week of eating in Croatian restaurants, this place was such a delight. Mainly because the service was so friendly and accommodating. I did not eat but my friends had some main dishes and said the portions and flavour were fantastic, and very reasonably priced. We sat and chatted over Pina Coladas which were surprisingly some of the best... More

We were in Il Golfo for dinner. Food was normal but service was terrible. Waitress was very rude, even she ask us to leave booked table because new guests come... Strongly not recommend...

The setting for this restaurant is beautiful and it has a nice atmosphere. Our waitress was very friendly, spoke excellent English and gave us good recommendations. The tuna tartare is a must, I've never tasted tuna like it, absolutely beautiful. The pizzas are great too. Would definitely recommend this place.

This restaurant is very close to the see so the view is a pleasant one. Food is good (especially the grilled fish/squid) and the serving is quick. Deserts are not fabulous, but this is a problem on the entire area (they are not home made).
