My only regret is that I didn't eat here more

One of the few restaurants that was open in the off season, I was the only person when I arrived but that didn't make it any less hospitable. Otto Taverna's leading lady was very kind and even offered me some tips as to where I should eat for the rest of my stay in Dubrovnik. The food was... read more

We had lunch at this small restaurant soon after landing in Dubrovnik. Our host had recommended this quite highly in her list. We entered when the restaurant was empty and ordered the BBQ ribs and some chicken dish with hummus. The food was served pretty quickly. The quality of the food however wasn't as good as we were hoping. Maybe... More

Myself and my friends visited Otto Taverna by chance when on holiday in Dubrovnik in the summer. We try to eat in a different restaurant each night of our holidays but Otto Taverna was so good we decided to go back again on the last night of our holiday. After 5 years of holidaying in different countries around the Mediterranean,... More

This was a lovely, small restaurant. Bookings highly recommended - especially as there are only a few tables. Would come back here again if I ever returned to Dubrovnik.

We were lucky to get in here on spec. even if it was out of season. We got the last table. The atmosphere was excellent, not too noisy, just a nice buzz of people chatting and having a good time. The menu was not extensive, just a reasonable number of dishes which they obviously make a point of doing very... More

Close to the port, this restaurant is set in a 'cellar' themed room (though not in an actual cellar). The menu had several options for starter, main and dessert. The portions were good and the food was delicious. Very fresh and beautifully cooked. The service was unobtrusive and the wine list was good. Very good value for money.

We read reviews about Otto Taverna so had to try it. We were lucky to be there in shoulder season so no reservations required. This is a simple little restaurant with a limited menu but excellent quality. We tried the pumpkin soup. Yum. My tuna steak was delicious. My husband had lamb chops & loved them. The owners, a husband/wife... More

We had read about the Otto restaurant before travelling to Dubrovnik and the arch setting looked interesting so we jumped on the No 6 bus from Pile Gate and travelled the 3 stops to Gruz harbour area. From there it is about 5 minute walk to the restaurant. On our first visit the restaurant was only serving drinks as they... More

Just back from a lovely meal in this small but very well presented taverna. Menu is limited for a reason. Everything is cooked to order and tasted delicious. Well worth a visit.

Stayed a week in Dubrovnik. Best food we had. Good value as well. Worth the short walk to the (other) harbour to experience. Small place, nice atmosphere.
