“A surprising taste of home”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

We happened upon this little bar/restaurant after walking out of the aquarium next door to hear an English woman describing her dinner as almost identical to a Cornish pasty. Intrigued by the Croatian equivalent of the mining classic we decided to check it out. The place is exceptionally reasonable given it's location in the old town, right next to the harbor and their Pastry roll containing Meat, Potato and Onion was actually closer to a cornish pasty than many of the products I've seen described as such in the UK! We also had a calzone style pizza which was also very nice and the whole place and a very genuine local feel. I would definitely recommend the garfield for a very reasonable and well cooked lunchtime snack!

“Best value in Dubrovnik old town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

I found one other review of Garfield Pizzeria and Fast Food in Dubrovnik, and I agree with every word of it.
Just off the old harbour and next to the entrance to the Aquarium you can get pizza, sandwiches , bureks and more all freshly made at half the price of the tourist trap restaurants that flood the old town.

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2012

We have just returned from Dubrovnik and ate here several times. On each occasion the food was fresh, well-cooked and delicious. The grilled sausages were excellent.

“Dubrovnik - Garfield's: Great food where the locals eat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2012

There has been an explosion of places to eat inside the Walls of Dubrovnik since tourism has returned in force. Most just offer the same fare you find back home, but at prices designed to separate tourists from a large chunk of their vacation money. You have to explore the side-streets to find the few remaining places where local people go for quality domestic eats at honest prices that won't break a traveller's budget.

A small, clean shop named "Garfield", just outside the entrance of the Dubrovnik aquarium, is one of those rare places. The home-made specialties are the simple, very tasty carry-away foods that are staples throughout the region: hot pitas/bureks filled with meat or cheese, fresh-out-of-the-oven pizza, and a variety of sandwiches on great bread. I've been back there a number of times since 2001 and the owners just don't skimp on the quality of the ingredients, never over-charge, and everything they offer is prepared fresh daily in their kitchen. It's one of only two or three places in Dubrovnik where you'll see both locals and tourists alike ordering and eating.

When you don't want to sit down at one of the many tourist-trap places and spend the equivalent of a night at a hotel for a plate of food you can find most anywhere, Garfield is a great place to grab a healthy bite before you head up to the Buža café for a swim or just stroll through the streets of that beautiful City. Very highly recommended.
