We both ordered steak and they brought the cuts to the table so that you could chooses how big you wanted your steaks to be. They were cooked to perfection and were very... read more

We dined at this restaurant in Oct. Food was very good and the service was professional and friendly. Faux pizza was really tasty and unique. Quite an expensive restaurant but we did find most restaurants rather pricey in Old Town.

Researched prior to the trip by my gal pal, this was her birthday pick reservation. Her wish was granted and we all benefited! A party of four, this was our first dinner of our vacation and was the best we had in Croatia! Opting to dine outside, we all enjoyed creative cocktails then shared the truffle burrata pizza, outstanding. I... More

Superb food. Great steaks- they bring the slab out to you so you can dictate the size. The lamb shank was equally good. Bring an appetite portion size is large. Book to avoid disappointment.

First of all, it,s not a bad restaurant but it,s not living up to the hype. Time has really past since all the rewards..."best restaurant in Croatia", 17 point from Gault etc. End of the season of some of the skilled chef,s maybe left. A oversalted experience overall.

I think this is the best restaurant in Dubrovnik with very delicious foods and excellent location. Concept is very classy, very romantic as well as with great sea and Old Town view. Definitely must visit with here, also suitable for friends. After dinner you can also drink at the bar, it is open until 2 am..But be careful, prices are... More

Yes it is more expensive than other restaurants but it is also in a league of it's own. Could not fault it - fabulous and a must visit.

Just picked this as we walked past. Really nice people, well looked after and very good food. Wine list a little expensive at first glance but we found a good bottle at a reasonable price in the end. Curious as to how they adapt the table legs on the reasonably steep incline on the side street but it didn't detract... More

Visited Gills based on the tripadvisor reviews- what a great place, with amazing food and service! Well worth the visit although I would book in advance at the weekends as it gets extremely busy.

In the UK, I live opposite a restaurant with 2 Michelin stars. The food at Gill's is better constructed and the flavour of the sauces are exceptional.
