For my wife, this was the best past in her life.
I got a tip for this place from a well know Croatian chef. He said it is the best place in Lošinj/Cres to visit. He was right. Had a chance to talk to Marco, very pleasant and cool guy. And he cooks great dishes :-)

Can't help it, but this Marco Sasso chef, an American-Italian guy who followed his heart and came to small Ravenska bay at Veli Lošinj, looks to me like Al Pacino in early days. Very friendly and nice guy. Fine and tasty fresh sea food that you should explore. Makes his own pastas, try it with scallop instead of truffles, because they are frozen during summer months as black truffles, which are most common in Croatia, are harvested in late autumn and winter. Grilled fish is literally fresh out of the sea, so I had no problems with mine being under grilled. If it is fresh, you can it eat it raw, after all. Nice atmosphere in a small port with local fishermen having their glasses of red wine next to you, enjoying the remains of the day.

We returned to Veli Losinj again this year and ate at Marco Sasso's idyllic restaurant virtually every night. He has brilliantly combined the magical mixture of beautifully cooked but unpretentious Italian cuisine, made from fresh and hand made ingredients, in a simple menu served by charming staff, in the most laid-back harbour setting, thus creating one of the loveliest al fresco restaurant experiences we have ever had.

But I have left the final and most potent ingredient until last - the man himself! Marco Sasso is a charismatic, charming and engaging host, as well as an experienced and much sought-after chef. Despite his success and notoriety, he is a modest, down-to-earth and fascinating man, who clearly loves his chosen calling. You can see this in many ways, from the fact that he takes the time and trouble to meet and engage with all his guests, to sitting down with all his staff to share a collective dinner at the end of every evening. Both acts are typical of the man and are truly delightful personal touches. He and The Bora Bar left a very marked positive impression on us both and played no small part in the success of our holiday. Thank you.

At the miniharbour of Ravenska(5-10min) walking to Veli Losinj we ate a very nice tunacarpaccio, mussles, home-made truffleravioli and fishillet. Not very cheap( together about 60 euro incl drinks), but worth it
