Expert review of Ribarska Kučica

In Bol, try seafood served in an old stone cottage on the coast, with stunning sea views.

In an windswept stone cottage on a small rocky outcrop jutting out into the sea, Ribarksa Kučica (which means fisherman’s house) bills itself “a restaurant for fishermen and gourmets”. The first time I saw it I was immediately charmed by the setting, and its glorious sea views and excellent fresh fish have won the hearts of many visitors beside myself.

Food and drink: 

They used to do pizzas, but now the menu is dedicated to Dalmatian cuisine, with an emphasis on seafood. You can expect classic dishes with a few modern takes: rižot sa plodovima mora (seafood risotto), njoki sa gorgonzola i pršutom (gnocchi with gorgonzola and prosciutto) and grdobina sa pršutom (monkfish with prosciutto). There’s also a limited selection of dishes for hardcore carnivores, such as puretina punjena sirom I pršutom (turkey stuffed with cheese and prosciutto).

Recommended dishes: 

Most people come here for the riba na žaru (grilled fresh fish) – and maybe the brancin (sea bass) or orata (gilthead bream), depending on the day’s catch.

Ambience: 

The highlight here is the peaceful and romantic location - a star-lit sky and views onto the open sea from tables with flickering candles, right up by the water’s edge. For chilly evenings there’s also a dining room with exposed stonework and chic white linen table clothes and napkins.

Service: 

The waiters are friendly, hospitable and attentive.

Location: 

It's on the coastal path between the centre of Bol and the Dominican monastery.

Price advice: 

If you opt for fresh fish you’ll be paying around 500 kuna for a three-course meal for two, with wine.
