“Classic Dalmatian cuisine with refined service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

We dined here our second night in Dubrovnik on recommendation of Abercrombie and Kent brochure. We were able to make reservations via email. they have a few tables at street level and a beautiful terrace on the second level. Admittedly, as it was day 6 in Croatia we were growing tired of the standard Dalmatian fare, we definitely appreciated the high quality of the ingredients, wine list and knowledge thereof as well as the friendly , professional. This appeared to be a restaurant known mostly to the locals - always a good sign.

“Very Enjoyable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

My partner and I dined here on our second night in Dubrovnik and enjoyed it so much we went back 3 days later on our last day. No it isn't cheap but I wouldn't rate it as expensive either. We were very happy with value for what we received. The fish was excellent, especially the seafood platter and the shrimps. Everything was very fresh. I had the beef steak the second night and it was delicious. We found the waiters very pleasant and helpful and friendly. The wine list was mainly Croatian wines which was lovely to try them. We sat outside both nights and enjoyed the atmosphere of the Old Town.

“Too expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

We booked a table as the restaurant looked really nice, the staff were very pleasant and the service was good. My rissotto was awful, it was more like a kegeree, the rest of our food was fine but didnt demand £55.00 a head. I like value for money and didnt feel the food justified the price

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

For lunch we went to the Proto Restaurant that my husband read about on Trip Advisor. There was a lovely terrace on the second floor. We ordered two starter plates; one each of beef and fish carpaccio served over crisp salad greens. Excellent. Our waitress was so kind and helped us to select the dishes that met our tastes. Following that, we shared a plate of pasta with mushrooms and black truffles; a creamy rich sauce melded all the flavours and we oohed and aahed throughout the meal. Pairing these dishes with a local beer and wine, a lovely atmosphere on the terrace and professional service, it was memorable. Although a bit on the pricey side (but well worth it), we definitely recommend this restaurant.
