Sorry to say but in my opinion this restaurant is over priced and over rated. Food mediocre and limited choice . Certainly wouldn't recommend or re visit. Waiting staff delightful, and efficient ( maybe a little over attentive). Lovely ambience , great location.

We stayed in Dubrovnik for 4 nights. Tavulin Bistro was by far the best food we experienced. The heaters and lap blankets kept us warm and the service, food and wine refreshed our spirits! We were tired after traveling for 3 weeks thru the Balkans....More
