    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

  • Gradska Kavana: A great place for a coffee and some peoplewatching

    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".

    Seafood plate for two

    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

    by ranger49 Updated May 20, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.
    Lovely location.

    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!

    Konavoski Dvori: Lamb cooked on glowing coals

    by ranger49 Updated Dec 9, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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: Restaurant LABIRINT

    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.

    Croatian Cuisine: Restaurant Pergola Higly Recommended

    Leaflet

    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.

    DOMINO STEAKHOUSE: OLD WORLD CHARM

    PROFESSIONAL SERVICE

    Domino opened its doors to hungry customers in 1982 and offers fantastic food for meat lovers who like professional service when they wine and dine. I decided to eat inside because it was a little chilly and received a warm welcome. You can actually watch your food being prepared from your table. And if you order any flambé dish, they will bring the cooking table to you. They know how to do beef. They even have a guide to the different cuts of beef that you can enjoy at your table. You can also have fresh fish, but this is a place to have and enjoy local Croatian steak. I had a couple of glasses of red Croatian wine and they really complemented my meal. The best is that the waiters are professional and offer a flawless service. When you dine inside they can see, and do react, to even a turned head. You will wait and want for nothing. A great dining experience.

    Favorite Dish:

    I had a 'mixed grill' dish with glasses of 2 varieties of red wine. Magnificent !

    Arsenal Wine Bar and Tarverna: Stay away if you don't want bad food!

    by PowerJ Written Aug 30, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

  • GUSTI: GUSTI - Small but excelent place for food and wine

    by casymyr Written Apr 23, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are awful lots of places with pizza and pasta in Old Town Dubrovnik, not what we came for to Croatia.
    We found a very nice small wine and food restaurant in a narrow street "Izemedu polaca" parallel to the main street "Stradum". The name of the reataurant is GUSTI. They cook with love, and the staff is very nice and not intrusive, like in other places.
    In lunch time they offer "Light Lunch" a special menu at a reduced price. They served us an extra appetizer, soup, main dish (we had one fish and one chicken) together with roasted vegetables, and crêpe as dessert. Everything very delicious.
    It is worth to sit - or at least to look - inside. Nice medieval room and lots of wine in shelfs at the walls.

    Favorite Dish: Real Croatian food, no fastfood, well cooked and delicately spiced. Special offers for lunchtime.

    Lokrum Restaurant: DO NOT EAT HERE !!!!!!!!

    by pugwashman Written Oct 18, 2013

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We wish we never had the misfortune of eating at this restaurant.
    It was horrid, easily the worst meal we had on our holiday, and may well be the worst we've ever had. And it wasn't cheap.
    It's seems to be run by a group of young kids, and the food is disgusting.
    We had grilled chicken which was tasteless, and a seafood risotto which was just a couple of crab sticks cut up and mixed with normal rice. While we were sitting there someone else sat down at a table near us and ordered seafood risotto and got something completely different.
    We wish we'd read the reviews on Trip Advisor before we went here as no-one, and I mean no-one has a good word to say about it.
    So be warned, do not make the same mistake.

    Favorite Dish: we didn't have one.
    our favourite moment was when we left !
