Amazing place with beautiful setting. Food and wine was outstanding with brilliant service. We followed our perfect lunch with a snooze on the lounge bed in the shade with a cool sea breeze. Easy to get to from the ferry. A fantastic place worthy of the highest recommendation.

What a beautiful setting! We got a boat here for lunch. We picked out all own fish which was very exciting for our teenage daughters. Food and wine was lovely.

This was our favourite restaurant in Dubrovnik and one that we will always remember. We booked the table in advance through our hotel. I would definitely recommend booking a table here as we tried to get a dinner reservation but they were full so we came for lunch instead. We sat overlooking the beautiful turquoise sea. The waiters were really... More

The location of this restaurant can't be beat with sweeping ocean and island views. However the prices and service could be much better (even by slow food Croatian standards). Our group arrived to a nearly empty restaurant at 12:15, ordered by 12:30 and proceeded to wait for the first food to come out at 1:45 with the final dishes not... More

The setting above the cliff is divine and we were met at the dock by our waiter (Josef) who showed us to our table and brought is a glass of wine. He was really helpful with offering suggestions of wine... More

This is a restaurant which takes its food ingredients very seriously. It's a "proper" restaurant, rather than one which out mediocre food for the tourist trade. Consequently, it ain't cheap but it's well worth a visit for a special occasion or for a pleasant change, particularly if you're staying in the nearby hotel. The position's beautiful and I suggest that... More
