I had great experience with their marinated/roasted pork ribs, home made barbecue source and dry roasted potatoes. I have just went for whatsoever meal in town and it looked like worth of trying . Meal was bullseye hit, what a flavor!!! I truly couldn't believe that pork ribs can literally melt in your mouth. Owner also is a cool guy...

We were told to go here by some of the people who sell the boat tours in Gruz harbour,up to that point we had been pretty disappointed in what Dubrovnik had to offer in terms of good places to eat, bare in mind we had eaten at the Nautika (Michelin starred) in the old town the night before and had...

Great food, honest prices, nice atmosphere, the real deal. I highly recommend this authentic Croatian restuarant that attracts as many locals as visitors.

We stumbled upon this place and thought we'd give it a go - so glad we did. The food was outstanding, the restaurant itself is very nice and unique (in some kind of former stone bunker or storage facility. The staff were supurb; very attentive and very friendly. I would say in the top 2 restaurants of Dubrovnik.

We ate in Dubrovnik on our last evening there in early November, 2014. The risotto was exceptional, as was our dessert (not too sweet and something that was new on the menu, with pistachio I think). I had tuna steak which was well prepared. This is a nice restaurant, not inexpensive, and the food vibe is cosmopolitan. If that's what... More

Thought I'd try this after the glowing reviews on here and I certainly wasn't a let down. Interior is lovely and traditional but still looks modern too. The service was very good, cared for and told lots of valuable info about the area. Sampled some nice local wines, ate homemade fresh bread and then there was our food. Wow. The... More
