Book it!
Collected from out hotel in Dubrovnik to a small beach for transfer by their own boat to this unique restaurant.

A beautiful small cove with 5 cabanas for up to 6 people, a bar, restaurant and some sun beds on the beach. The service was fantastic along with the food and the location. We had the most chilled day we could remember.

Book a cabana, have the tasting menu, which you must book in advance. When we saw the tasting menu we regretted not ordering it and it was no longer available. The other food was fantastic, so all was well.

There is a minimum charge per person, so we had two different fresh fish and vegetables.

Although there are boats and jet skis arriving and departing all day it didn’t feel any more crowded than a good restaurant.

Top tip: book a cabana AND the tasting menu.

We almost didn't come here because of all the review of the wasps but it really wasn't THAT bad! I hate insects and even have phobia but it was very ok! I would recommend to visit Bowa and would even go back if we ever come back to Croatia
Beautiful place, supper friendly staff, good food!
I would only suggest some nice background music around restaurant and beach!

Dear DC W

Thank you so much! Finally, a voice of reason: we are indeed in the wild nature and wasps are a part of it but we are prepared for them as much as we can

Service was fantastic, from the speed boat over to the restaurant service, the staff couldn’t do enough for you and made the visit extremely welcoming.

We had the lunch menu where we shared the whole fresh fish of the day with vegetables. The fish was incredible, barbecued whole and filleted in front of us, tasted so fresh and full of flavour and the accompanying dishes were grilled perfectly. The cocktails were great as well, very different flavours to the usual cocktail menus you see which was nice.

We then spent the day sunbathing and in the sea which was a lovely change from the hustle and bustle of old town - would definitely recommend a visit here, just be prepared for an expensive day, it’s unavoidable! Totally worth it for the day though!

My only point is that this beautiful island looks so peaceful and exclusive that you expect a tranquil, relaxing atmosphere when lounging about. However there was a stag party and a few large groups of lads making a racket which detracted slightly and hence went from a 5 to a 4.

Dear BeccyC1990

thank you for your time to rate us. Sometimes some guests are so relaxed thinking that restaurant BOWA is their own backyard.

We appreciate your honest words

Kind regards, Maja Jozic
