We chose this restaurant on the last night of our holiday as a real treat to ourselves and we were not disappointed. We made a reservation as we passed the restaurant early in the evening then continued on to have a few drinks looking our over the bay as the sunset, it was such a beautiful place to chill and...

We visited Cavtat in July and ate in Bugenvila towards the end of the holiday. The reviews that comment on the similar nature of food elsewhere are correct, but Bugenvila does try harder with a more ambitious menu. Food was generally very good, although I wasn't overly impressed with my pate. Still good for Bugenvila for raising the bar.

My chicken was I think cooked sous-vide and this texture accruing not to everyone's taste. Food beautifully presented and puddings just stunning. Will definitely return. Ate outside as... More

My husband and I had dinner here whilst on holiday in September. We hadn't reserved a table and were lucky to get one as they were almost full. The food was beautifully presented and delicious. The staff were courteous, attentive and recommended excellent wines to accompany our meal. Highly recommended!

We had a cheese platter to start with, local cheese, manchego and a lovely Swiss cheese called tete de Moines which was presented in the shape of a flower. Mains were ox cheeks that melted in...
