Here we present you with some of the best options for eating and drinking on Vis!
Setaliste stare Isse 9, Vis
A quirky place that’s likely to be jumping at that time in the evening when other places have shut up shop. But a fun bar to go to whatever time it is, with its outdoors-but-indoors vibe; drinks are reasonably priced and the music is eclectic to say the least – expect to hear “amazing” 80s Europop with The XX only a few songs later. Just mind the smokers!
Above Vis Town
A twenty minute walk outside of Vis Town is Fort George, a long abandoned British fort that’s now home to a bar and restaurant, open during the summer months. Perched on a hill, there’s gorgeous views out to sea, and the pretty, slightly eccentrically decorated garden can’t help but provide you with a content, ‘this is the life’ feeling when you visit. Recommended.
Riva sv. Mikule 6, Komiza
Literally meaning ‘fish restaurant’, you can’t come here and, well…not partake in some fish or seafood! Try the squid ink (black) risotto or the octopus, fisherman’s style (essentially a goulash-type dish). This is a good low-key option when eating out in Komiza.
Konoba & Bar Lola
Matije Gupca 12, Vis
A relatively new addition to the Vis dining scene, this restaurant puts an innovative twist on traditional Dalmatian cuisine. The exceedingly pretty courtyard setting adds to the charm of this place, and it’s got the mix of ‘smart’ and ‘relaxed’ just right.
Matije Gubca 1, Vis
A low-key option for when you’ve got a hankering for a beer and pizza night, and want something wallet-friendly too. Pizzas are well priced, and you can add extra toppings (for an additional charge) as you like. There’s a large outdoor courtyard that acts as a seating area close to the waterfront. Open all day, so you can also come here for (non-pizza!) breakfast too. Fans of the film Mamma Mia 2 may recognise the courtyard – it was one of the filming locations!
With a lovely seating area in the plaza out front – close enough to watch the activity on the yachts in the harbour – or in the stone courtyard, this is a fine reward if you decide to make the walk from Vis Town to nearby Kut. A good selection of beers and cocktails, they’re also known for their pizzas.
Biskupa Mihe Pusica 17, Vis
This restaurant is probably one of the most raved-about places on the whole island of Vis, and rightly so. On the eastern edge of the harbourfront in Vis Town, there’s outdoor seating as well as a cosy interior. You can’t help but go for one of the grilled fish options, and make sure you wash it down with some local wine (ask for recommendations). If you’re not quite into fish as some are, go for the traditional Dalmatian pasticada – a stewed beef dish that’s served with gnocchi. The grilled veg as a side – go for a portion of the table – is also fantastic.
Pod Kulom 5, Vis
Located next to the (privately owned) tower in Vis Town, this slightly ramshackle place (with old lamps dotted around, a record player next to a stack of LPs playing blues and reggae) is a great post-dinner treat. You must try one of their selection of rakijas, and then wonder how people actually get into that tower.
If you make it down to Stoncica bay – home to a small sandy beach – whether by road or by boat (lucky you!), be sure to give this place a try for excellent grilled meat and fish choices in a really charming setting.
