Excellent food coupled with attentive service - small gripe was that the waiter poured wine for our neighbours but not us??? The food was of a high standard but the chef seems to be trying a little too hard to make the plate pretty while forgetting about the flavours. Portions were a little on the small side. Overall a great... More

This restaurant definitely deserves it's no. 1 rating. We visited twice for dinner whilst staying in Cavtat and couldn't fault it either time. The staff were attentive and the menu was very interesting. I would recommend the parfait or scallops for starter, I loved the lamb and lobster main courses and my husband enjoyed the steak so much that he... More

My daughter had her celebration birthday meal here and the staff were charming, especially our lovely waiter who takes such a pride in his work. A dessert plate was decorated and a sparkler added to the surprise of my daughter, wow ! Now the food, classy, beautifully presented and 3 or 4 courses you have definitely had enough to eat... More

With respect to other restaurants we enjoyed in a one week stay in Cavtat, Bugenvila is outstanding. Walking past this establishment the first impression is that it does not look that much different to other restaurants in this wonderful cove - wrong! Look a little more closely at the menu that is subtly on display and you can notice there... More

Passing through Cavtat on our way to the airport we used Trip Advisor to find a decent restaurant for the final meal of the holiday. We weren't disappointed. The menu was creative, the staff couldn't have been more helpful and the location perfect. If you only have one meal in Cavtat, I'd have no hesitation in recommending Bugenvila.

We had a wonderful dining experience at Bugenvilla in old town Cavtat. The presentation of the food was exquisite and the service excellent. Of course the food tasted great also. They have some of the better Croatian wines that I could not find at some of the other restaurants we ate at. Bugenvilla is located right on the Cavtat harbor... More

We heard very good about this place and decided to try it. We thought that it will be expensive, but it wa not much more expensive that other places. We shared oysters to start with and after that a Tartar beef and some kind of white fish with vegetables. Excellent and absolutly the best food on this trip. Thank you,... More

Bugenvila lies along the sea front in Cavtat, next to several highly ordinary "holiday eateries". We were recommended the restaurant by several people, and the place certainly did not dissappoint us! The food and the service is excellent. Alongside the slow cooked lamb and and the Asian style Adriatic fish, we ordered local Croatian wine, recommended by our waiter -... More

I think this is possibly one of the best restaurants in Cavtat (though admittedly we have not eaten in every single one). We had a wonderful meal there, it was really fresh, the fish was lovely, and service great. So much so, that we booked for another meal a couple of days later. It does get busy, and it's popularity... More

Our weather wasn't great the week we were in Cavtat so more time was spent than usual- this is our third time there- wining and dining. We treated ourselves to a lunch on one occasion and an evening meal on another. Both were just perfect with excellent service. The ox cheek was melt in the mouth tender- I recommend that... More
