”Lovely restaurant – Great surrounding and delicious food, surprised with great options for vegan and gluten free for a friend on dietary isuues. We can recommend this nice cozy place with no doubt.”
”A Wonderful Surprise – We randomly chose to eat here rather than because it was rated #1 on TripAdvisor during our holiday in Bol. Only afterwards did I look and find this out. The food is amazing to say they are making it in such small surroundings. It was served quickly and was delicious and we enjoyed it with the bottled beer they sell. I loved Bol and have booked to return next year and will certainly be heading to Biomania again.”

”Delicious food – Our host recommend us this nice restaurant close to Zlatni rat beach. We had sea food pasta and grilled fish. Both beyond our expectation.”
”Culinary paradise for couples – Very romantic, intimate ambience in a cute garden with lights. Food was amazing, especially octopus with potatoes which you have to order one day in advance. I also recommend red wine Plavac from Murvica.”
”Good food, great setting – The restaurant is right next to Zlatni Rat and like a Timeout review stated, could easily be a tourist trap, but it’s not. The service was impeccable: our server, Lav, gave us great recommendations (food and wine) and even gave us a few travel tips for the region. We took the fish platter and our only criticism was that the tuna was too cooked for our taste. Everything else was good. Let me say though, you come here for the setting. Sitting under olive trees in a terrace lit by lanterns, where the tables are spaced apart allowing you to enjoy your dinner with a feeling of privacy. Great find!”

The fish was fresh and tasty, the way they cooked was great and very well presented.
