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.
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.
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.
A pleasnt clean place with Croatian cooking. We shared a mussels buzara as appetizer and then had a sauteed veal dish (like a Milanese) and a lamb shashlik (shish kebab) plus Croatian wine For dessert we had sladoled(homemade ice cream). In season they manage to have some outdoor tables in the street(alley) but I don't know how.
Favorite Dish: Croatians love to grill food, young meat (lamb and veal are in good supply and prime). Thus our main courses werequite acceptable in this konoba which has been recognized by other VTers. The precise directions are below. They claimed the ice cream was homemade but how can one tell. It WAS good! This was lunch so judge the price.
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.
We found the best place for take away pancakes. We went there each night after dinner and bought our pancakes and sat on the steps outside and chatted with the locals.
It is situated on one of the streets off the Stradun heading up to Pireko. The shop is on the right hand side with a big yellow sign saying Pancakes in 5 languages. Ask for walknuts inside and chocolate sauce.
They are THE BEST.
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?)
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.
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.
