Bowa was the last place we stopped in our sailing trip to Croatia and it was an amazing farewell lunch after a week of island hopping. The place is amazing, setting is great. We were there in a Thursday, late summer, so it was quite...More

We came here for my sister's 30th birthday. A local guide had recommended it. It's hidden in a cove which makes it feel special. They have huts that you can eat in or in the main restaurant (which isn't large so once again feels special)....More

Only accessible by boat, this is a very lovely restaurant on the coast of the island of Sipan. The service is charming, the food and wine delicious. It is not cheap, but for a special experience, we thoroughly recommend it.
