This gem of a restaurant serves beautiful food in a wonderful location. The leek and potato soup is beyond wonderful. Can't recommend it highly enough

Bugenvila was recommended by friends - thank you! It really is a lovely restaurant with tables outside and a cosy dining room upstairs overlooking the sea. We chose the up stairs room, it was April and a little chilly for outside in the evening. Service was excellent from our waiter Alan and waitress Miheala. Wonderful menu and super wine list... More

Beautiful presentation, attentive staff. Loved my experience here. Freshly shucked oysters were delicious, beer well chilled and the balsamic vinegar was wonderful with their fresh rolls. Bravo!

Arrived at the restaurant. No-one forced us in. Got seated outside with a beautiful view. ATMOSPHERE: Warm, welcoming STAFF: Truly remarkable (Mihaela especially :) hvala) MENU: Short and thrilling. Oysters were fantastic and everything we ate made us smile :) Vanilla risotto dessert out of this world. PRICE: Who cares? Last night in Cavtat. Couldn't get any better.

I was in so many Michelin rated restaurants, very strange this one hasn't been rated. Just look "leek and potato soup with picante Gorgonzola and truffles" Very very tasty, serving amazing. Now let me finish my salad with violet potatoes :)

Having read such good reviews on this restaurant, I was looking forward to trying it during our short stay in Cavtat. I was so disappointed to find that they hadn't yet opened for the season, but fortunately for us, on the last night of our holiday, they re-opened. The menu was limited as it was the first night, but the... More

Along a great Cavtat promenade there is an up to date Mediterranean restaurant that serves modern cuisine, ie light fare with fresh local ingredients, huge serving plates, and rather minimalistic portions with a bill that matches the size of serving dishes. We thought the food was great especially some appetizers and desserts like a deconstructed Apple pie which was picture... More

We arrived and were led upstairs to a great table with brilliant views and given the menus. The food looked very different to the standard seafood and Italian on offer elsewhere which was a nice change. We ordered wine, which was brilliant, but more through luck than judgement as the menu and waiter could give no information. The glasses arrived... More

Unassuming restaurant - we chose due to no1 on trip adviser rating. Bottle local red wine chosen by waiter, two pasta dishes - very enjoyable sauces, Apple crumbe (with a difference- scattered crumble with homemade apple and ice cream. Followed by coffee and walnut liqueurs. 500 kunas.

I wish I had the words to convey how truly content I feel whenever I dine at this restaurant. The chefs are remarkably adept at combining the simplest and most innocuous ingredients to create a delightfully palatable offer. It is evident that quite a bit of thought and preparation has gone into every item on their menu. From appetizer to... More
