This time we came by ship..."Seabourn Odyssey"
On our previous visit we had spied this man seeking customers for Antonini's. This time we went to find him. So we walk through a narrow street and up a few stairs to find another street with a number of restaurants waiting for our custom...but we were "taken"
There were ony a few places left to fill and we were soon seated at a small table all set for a feast.
Some bread and an apertif were served and our order taken.
Favorite Dish: Well I chose a seafood platter....a small whole fish accompanied by prawns, squid, mussels.... Hey there I had never tasted mussels and certainly did not know how to manage them. The customers sitting next to us did not have much English but the man gave me a 'demo' which made all the difference.
Well Croation prices are cheap...2011...and they accept Euro or the Croation Kuna.
The food was great and local flavors combined with items to meet tourist needs too. Location right by all the sites, but off the beaten path down by the water edge is fine, and the prices are reasonable. The drinks were pricey and the pivo/beer for a large glass was $5 and glass of wine $5-6
Favorite Dish: We liked the sardines marinated plate with cheese
The ambiance is very nice and has a great view of the harbor where the boats are moored. The outside patio is a great place to sit down and have a nice dinner and perhaps a bottle of wine. But that is where it stops. The service was horrible. We were greeted by a harried waiter with a hand full of dirty dishes wanting to take our order immediately. When I asked if he would like to return after he deposited the dishes, he quickly replied "no, give me your order". This place isn't like Denny's or Mc Donalds, but this guy was a nervous wreck. We ordered after 45 minutes and were treated to just mediocre food. The mussels for instance were mostly shells. A seagull could barely have made a meal of it. When I asked another waiter if it was really busy, his reply was "it is very slow". My opinion is that this is just another restaurant capitalizing on a great location and mediocre food. Pretty disappointing.
Favorite Dish: Cuttlefish risotto was very decent.
The terrace of this coffeehouse is perfectly located a little to the side of Luza square at the end of Stradun. From here you can watch all the tourists walk by and you are also provided with the best views of the swallows circulating over the old town. I remember sitting her for hours ordering too many drinks instead of continuing our walking tour of the old town. But isn't that what holidays are for?
Favorite Dish: We only had a few drinks here so I have to say "A Coke Zero and the views".
I had read about the sandwiches of Buffet Skola on Krista's Dubrovnik page here on VT. She had written so nicely about a ham and cheese sandwich, we simply had to try ;)
And right she was! We went to this tiny place in one of the side streets of Stradun (left handside coming from Pile Gate), sat outside in the shade and ordered a sandwich with olive oil cured cheese and Dalmatian smoked ham (Prsut). It was gorgeous! The perfect start for a wonderful day in Dubrovnik...
Favorite Dish: There are only a few sandwiches on the menu (Oil cured cheese, Ham, Ham and Cheese). I can really recommend the mixed sandwich with Prsut and Cheese. It's so lovely! The price: 17 kn as far as I remember.
The manager of our guesthouse, Toni, had given us two advises on where to eat in Dubrovnik and one advise where not to eat.
We chose this place for a little VT dinner because it looked nice, with a nice outdoor seating on the square underneath the steps Uz jezuite. Plus there wasn't anybody trying to sell us anything, on the contrary, you could have a look inside the menu without anybody looking at you. And because the owner is a friend of Toni's, we knew he wouldn't mess it up! Plus the other place Toni had recommended, the popular Lokanda, had too much fish on the menu for our tastes.
It was a good decision. The food we got here was among the best we got on our whole trip, something I wouldn't have expected to happen in Dubrovnik! Prices are as high as they are in Dubrovnik, but here you can be sure to get a good meal!
The day we visited it was rather busy here with lots of tables being full. The poor owner/waiter/Mr. Bean impersonator was running around quite a lot. He still was very friendly.
Favorite Dish: I had marinated grilled turkey breast which was very good. Thomas had Turkey breast with Prsut and Mince sauce. I think it would be the only dish in Croatia he would leave Boban's "Gnocchi Mare e Monti" Fanclub for ;)
I am not telling you what Maxine had... I would immediately start laughing again (Hello dear Maxine, are you still hungry?)
Forming part of the city walls, Labirint is one of Dubrovnik's most exclusive and expensive dining venues. Tables on the terrace overlook the old harbour and provide the perfect setting for an intimate meal. The menu features top-notch Croatian and international cuisine.
Wanda Mediterranean cuisine invites you to experience a new standard of culinary excellence by celebrated Hollywood chefs. The menu merges the best of three regions of Italy combined with exquisite flavors of Dalmatian cuisine. Tantalizing the palate is an unusual and enticing variety of pasta dishes, seafood, and steaks. Region's best cellar features selections from the most renowned wineries as well as some extraordinary, boutique-exclusive vineyards from around the world.
This restaurant is a few miles south of Dubrovnik, past the airport. It is located in the countryside beside an old water mill.
As well as indoor seating there is a lovely, shaded courtyard for outdoor eating from where you can see the domed iron ovens containing the burning coals over which the meat - usually lamb - is cooked.
The fragrant aromas are the first to greet you followed by the serving staff dressed in National Costumes.
We went for an early lunch on a Sunday in mid September and were relieved that it was not full, as we had been told of its popularity.
We had an excellent meal with service and surroundings that made it memorable on all counts.
I can imagine that at the height of the season it would be impossible to get in without a reservation and that many places would be taken by coach parties - of which there were none on our visit.
After lunch we took the advice on the Publicity Flyer and set off to walk along the river Ljuta as far as the waterfall - but we were full, it was uphill and very hot o so we sat and watched the flow of the river instead.
Although a real tourist attraction there was nothing tacky about this experience.
Favorite Dish: Definitely the roast lamb served with salads, vegetable accompaniments and home made bread.
Starters included salads and fish; deserts are for those with a very sweet tooth but the apple pie with cream was perfect!
Everything we had was delicious.
If you look at the Photo Gallery on the restaurant web site you can see the table where we sat next to the river.
The pictures are much better than mine were!
