My wife and I enjoyed the perfect end to our honeymoon by dining at this establishment. Our waiter Pero treated us like royalty and our main course fish platter was the best we've ever had. To class food with top class service along with a fantastic location and ambiance made it the perfect meal.

Some of the best service we had in Cavtat, lovely spacious outdoor area. Quite expensive but refined food (£75 for both of us inc drinks) - we had the three course 'Biser Mora' which was delicious, as well as the truffle sirloin steak and honey prawns. We were still full the next day!

Visited this restaurant on the recommendation of someone staying in my hotel. The food was absolutely fine, my partner and I both enjoyed our meals. Service was lacking initially, we waited quite a while to be seen after being seated. We also ended up ordering food before being offered a drinks menu. After that the service was much better. The...

The menu board outside caught our attention, offering soup, sardines and pudding at a decent price. Our waiter was tri-lingual (at least) and was charming and attentive. Linen napery. Nice glasses. The food was great, helped no doubt by the brilliant location at the edge of the town. No passing traffic, noise, exhaust etc. Dappled shade for our table. The... More

Ate here twice. Once, when only a handful of diners were there and another when there was two very large (organised) groups dining. On both occasions the food was excellent - the kitchen staff did very well to deliver high quality dishes during the incredibly busy period. The stuffed zucchini (veggie dish) was outrageously good as was the stuffed squid.... More

Taverna Galija is at the end of the harbour. It is quieter place than the others restaurants near the bus station. It has a sea-facing terrace and its cosy interior dining room has exposed stone walls. The wait staff were friendly and our meals were very fresh and reasonably priced.

I've never felt compelled to write a review on here until my second attempt at eating here. The first time I visited in June 2012 the service was terrible, we waited a long time to have drinks orders taken and the food was slow to arrive even though the restaurant wasn't busy. My Uncle and Auntie had the same experience... More

We stayed in Cavtat for 7 nights and ate here on two occasions. I was initially attracted by the open grill area where the chef was hard at work doing his stuff. Although there was a large party of 70 eating there on our first night, we were quickly seated and orders taken. The food did take a while to... More

We had the set lunch (excellent value at 70 Kn) on our first day in Cavtat and dinner a few days later. I felt the award-winning ravioli dish, though very good, was somewhat overpriced at 390 Kn (there's not that much lobster in it) - but other dishes, e.g. the fish platter at 140 Kn, are very reasonable, so it...

Was attracted by the thought of ravioli stuffed with ricotta and lobster in a sea urchin sauce - was not disappointed ! Returned later in the week to try other local specialities, although found the bread a little of heavy side. As it was located near to our hotel also used it as our local watering hole - no problem... More
