We visited Obala twice on our visit to Jelsa, it was excellent both times! The food was perfect and I really felt the waiters made an effort to take the time and talk about all the food and drinks that we recieved. As we were leaving the restaurant all the waiters shook my hand and bid me farewell. 100% recommend... More

Popped in for a coffee and ended up having a delicious ham and cheese Omelette for breakfast. Super service from friendly staff and reasonably priced. Good location on the riva to watch the passing boats!

Had diner at the Obala. Typical Croatian dish: cevapcici with french fries and ajvar and onion. Abundant portion, good french fries (Belgians know what french Fries should look like and how they should taste although called "french" fries) and very kind staff: whatever request, whatever question was answered with a smile and a prompt answer. Their smile makes you feel... More

Pizza was not as good as others we have had in Croatia. The sauce tasted canned. Salad was fresh. Service was friendly. Views were spectacular.

We ate at this restaurant 4 times during our holiday and each time the service, food and ambiance was perfect. Delicious meals and a great price. Good for families, couples, friends. Right on the harbour front. Highly recommend.

Sea food is good as in Italy. We were able to park our boat 30 feet away and walk right over. We were 16 people and all enjoy our selections. Be sure to try the Fish Seabass

We chose this restaurant because of very appealing mist fan on the terrace and that turned out to be the best choice ever. During fairly hot day (over 30°C), terrace area was amazingly fresh. We had pasta bolognese and great Dalmatian pizza with prosciutto. The food was wonderful and tasty. Be sure to have some homemade red wine which tasted... More
