Konavoski Dvori: Lamb cooked on glowing coals
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!
Croatian Cuizine: Ragusa 2
Despite the fact that the Rudjenak family has been in restaurant business from 1929 and owns in addition to Ragusa 2 three other restaurants in Dubrovnik, I wasn't convinced with this place. In fact, its one of my worst restaurant experineces in Dalmatia.
Nothing was really awfully wrong with the place, but the price just was too high compared to the quality of the food, which was average at the best.
Croatian Cuizine: Konoba Penatur
This excellent konoba is located right in the heart of the old town, next to the Luza square and the Church of St. Blaise (Sv. Vlaho). This is your one of rare changes in the World to eat on the yard of a church ;)
Favorite Dish: Try the seafood plate for two shown in the picture. It has a couple of different fishes, shrimps calamari and more.. The price is 350 kunas (2007).
Levanat Cafe Restaurant: Fresh fish and more with a sea view
This restaurant has a lovely position on the shore and is just a pleasant stroll along the coastal path staring from the Kompas Hote on the Lapad Peninsular.
Mainly local cuisine with lots of fresh fish served with style. Perhaps slightly above average price for the region but it was well worth it . ( September 2004)
Favorite Dish: Our party had fish and steaks all were beautifully cooked and came with nicely cooked vegetables. Presentation excellent and service was relaxed but friendly and professional.
I cannot now recall exact cost but much less than a comparable meal in UK would have been.
Wanda Restaurant: Don't miss Wanda's pre-fix menu! A great deal!
The Mediterranean cuisine at Wanda is superb! My husband and I love the pre-fix menu, because we can try several different courses for one flat price. My husband loves their steaks, and I enjoy their seafood risotto. For dessert, try the traditional Dubrovnik dessert. It's yummy!!! The service was first rate, and the ambiance was quite romantic!
Favorite Dish: My favorite dish is the seafood risotto. It has just a hint of garlic, and the seafood is fresh and flavorful.
Lokrum: Best Lunch On Our Trip!
We ate lunch sitting outside the restaurant - enjoying the wonderful spring day and watching the people, locals and tourists, pass by on the cobblestone street. The owner and her son pampered us with fantastic service - even soaking the label off the beer bottle so my husband could bring it home as a souvenir! I eat fish often and I can safely say that the fish I had for lunch that day was the best I've had in years! My husband had a mixed grill platter (beef, pork and sausages) that he said was excellent. When the owner's son brought the change back to the table, he presented me with a handmade bookmark (how did he know I love to read?!?) with the name of the restaurant woven into the design. "A present for the lady.", he said.
While waiting for lunch I was able to address our postcards and mail them immediately at the post office, which was, fortuitously, located right next door!
Favorite Dish: Fish and mixed grill platter.
Konoba Nava: Take your pick
The streets and squares along the main tourist beat of Dubrovnik are full of restaurants and cafes.
"Konoba" is a Dalmatian term that indicates a simple establishment, serving local dishes - and there are plenty of those to choose from. They all have pretty much the same menu, and choice often comes down to where you can find a table. That's what we did and whilst I wouldn't call our meal haute cuisine, it was fine, full of flavour, and served with a smile. Tables were set up along a a narrow alley, in welcome deep shade, the beer was cold and refreshing ... what more did we need?
Favorite Dish: This was where our almost daily diet of grilled squid began. Tender and succulent, full of gutsy flavour. It was sooo good, we just had to have it again... and again... and again.
A Good Place to drink, chill and tan!
On the seaward side of Dubrovnik slammed up against the rocks, just outside the old wall lies the cutest little watering hole. Tunes of Dean Martin, views of the Adriatic, Lokrum, and a cold beer await you!
Favorite Dish: Ozujsko Pivo!
Labirint: great view and great food

Konoba Amoret: Croatian tavern
Konoba is a sort of tavern, a room in the ground-floor which exists in almost every old houses on the coastal part of Croatia. It used to serve as the dining-room during the hot summer days, or the tavern, during the rest of the year, where the householder recived his friends in order to taste the wine, eat some good home-made food, play the cards or chat. This kind of traditional social life is almost dissappeared today, it still exists in some small villages on the islands or in the hinterland.
Favorite Dish: Konoba is a place where one should order traditional home-made food, such as: smoked ham, cheese, salted fish, olives and genuine local wine.
The food here is served in cute pots..like in the past. Location is lovely (old town's harbour) and prices are more somewhat high, still about the average.
Used to be my favorite place in town, now it is always too busy and the quality is not as it was.
Octopus salad (my fav dish) is still excellent.
Oooh one more thing - If you are thinking they do fish - you are wrong. They do calamari, octopus salad, risotto, grilled calamari, mussels, etc.but no fish! Crazy
Favorite Dish: Octopus salad...yummie...
Croatian Cuisine: Restaurant Pergola Higly Recommended
My friend and I ate lunch here in Oct 2004 and had an excellent meal for a good price. There is a choice of indoor or outdoor seating, with the outdoor tables on a covered terrace. Quoting their promotional leaflet the food is "Daily fresh fish, meat dishes, cols and hot side dishes and sweets. Open daily from 11am to 1am." An ideal restaurant to visit if you are staying in one of the many hotels in the Lapad Bay area.
