Expert review of Ribarska Kučica
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.
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).
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.
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.
The waiters are friendly, hospitable and attentive.
It's on the coastal path between the centre of Bol and the Dominican monastery.
If you opt for fresh fish you’ll be paying around 500 kuna for a three-course meal for two, with wine.
