First, Sesame has a lovely, terraced garden and ambience. Second, the service was friendly and competent. Third, I've endured several $100/kilo "fresh fish" dinners throughout Dalmatia over the last 3 weeks. The $30 sea bass I had at Sesame was better than any of them....I recommend this restaurant without reservation (no pun intended).More

Stopped here on the way back from the beach. Ordered a Caesar salad. Was not impressed. Parmesan tasted off, not fresh. Bland and definitely not worth what was paid for it. Ordered the cake if the day, was nice. Got coffees and they were lovely....Overall not worth the money.More

Sesame has a beautiful setting, very romantic and cultural. The staff were fantastic especially Marija! The wine selection was great, the food selection was great and the food tasted great especially the cheese ravioli starter. We thought that although it was a lovely evening we...could of done with a little more food for what we paid, that being said 5 stars without a doubt.More

Awful fish soup, don’t order it! ( just water, raw rice and raw carrot). Salat with orange, potato was with boring sauce in small amount. Prices too high. Avoid it!

It's probably a nice place to drink a glass it's quiet and lovely.... But if you want diner it's not a good idea! Service it's a little bit slow and the dishes are not really dressed and not amazing... Final point it's too many expensive...for the quality! Good luck for the next!More

We visited Sesame and actually had a similar experience to others who have mentioned a very long wait for food - we arrived at 8pm and by 9.20pm we had had our starters (soup and ceviche), no bread was offered to us in the meantime,...whilst as in other reviews there was a table of six locals next to us receiving non stop service and attention plus bread to fill the gaps! We poured our own wine and had finished the entire bottle after the wait of over an hour for our main course of fish stew. I was so hungry at this point having had a tiny bowl of soup only and a bottle of wine while we waited, that I was nauseous and had a bad headache. My partner asked for an update on the food and we were told it would take 35 mins total to cook. It then miraculously appeared but was not hot. Parts were lukewarm and parts were just cold…and that makes me nervous with seafood. We couldn’t eat it. The waiter could tell it hadn’t been a good experience. We paid and left and walked past piles of dirty dishes stacked up waiting to go into the kitchen. There had also been a group of gentlemen at another neighbouring table who had at least an hour long wait for their starters. It felt to us like the place was suffering maybe a staffing shortage or issues in the kitchen, following all the disruptions of COVID maybe. It is a beautiful setting and makes a great first impression when you walk in, but the service was not close to the consistently high standard we have experienced at all other restaurants in Dubrovnik and and food was just ok - not edible due to the temperature. There is potential here - I think the management should really take note of these repeated issues and look to improve them as it could be such a special romantic place. The general service in Dubrovnik is attentive and polite and efficient. This place currently falls short. This also is not due to our particular waiter, when I asked for directions to the bathroom other staff were very abrupt and it seemed like they just didn’t have the time to explain to me. The bathrooms were also dirty and smelly of urine. I hope this place finds its mojo again. It really could be such a lovely venue.More

My boyfriend and I stopped here for a drink as when walking past it caught my eye, looking so beautiful and cosy with lights coming from the trees and not too busy as in dubrovnik old town at the moment there are people absolutely everywhere!...The lady who took us to our table was lovely and extremely accommodating. We decided we wanted to stay for dinner - even though the restaurant was full booked the host did everything she could to get us a different table to eat and was happy to help. This is the first restaurant in Croatia that I had the best veggie food in. As a vegetarian I struggled in other places as mostly there was meat and fish and limited veggie options. I had a beetroot risotto which was amazing! The flavours worked so well together and I haven’t tried something like this before. Unfortunately i was too full up to finish it but thoroughly enjoyed! My boyfriend had a lobster risotto which he also loved - was very tasty. The service was great, we felt very comfortable. Although there was a ring issue with the wrong dish being brought to my boyfriend at first, it was no problem as the waitress apologised and was quick to bring the right dish. Would definitely reccomend!More
