My husband and I visited Gostiona on a recent sailing trip to Vis. It was recommended by friends and it didn't disappoint. We asked our waiter to help us choose which was perfect as our meal was delicious and exactly the right amount of food.

We like coming to this place at least once when we are in Vis. The waiters are friendly, well informed and attentive. The seafood is great. We always order the octopus salad. The grilled calamari amazing. They make their own wine and it's perfectly matched to the food. Great view across the harbour when there isn't a boat directly opposite.

We were a group of five people and although they were very busy they managed to seat us quite quickly. We had a beer while we waited. The food was of a very high standard and the staff were excellent.

It is always a good sign when owners actually works at their restaurant. This cozy place has been inherited for generations and only problem I could find was that the family is not able to agree on the name - Gostiona, Bistro or Buffet? Beside that the spot doesn't fail anything. Great location, nice interior, great service, excellent food and... More

We went here for a late dinner. The place is popular so we had to wait for a table for approximately 30 min but we are glad we waited. Good services and very genuine and tasty food. The octopus sallad was excellent.

We had a great dinner at Gostiona. If you are not sure what to eat, take advice from the personal, you won't be sorry. Very helpful and relaxed personal. Also an awsome location, just at the start of riva with a great view.

Amazing fresh seafood with a nice view of the harbour. The owner was very welcoming and passionate about the food and we were happy with his recommendations. Octopus salad and marinated anchovies were great starters. Best value for money

We were there seven years ago and I must say the owner has risen the food and service to a higher level, but the prices have risen, too. Nontheless, the Gostiona is worth visiting. Try octopus salad and gof- a kind of fish I've only been able to taste on Vis and nowhere else. Visit Gostiona and have a small... More
