About
Sesame Restaurant is a well known Dubrovnik Restaurant situated just a minute walk on the main road on Pile gate close to Hilton Imperial Hotel. Sesame Restaurant is located in the complex of an two hundred-years-old family house surrounded by rich vegetation, including orange trees and very interesting residential architecture from 1900s. All dishes are prepared carefully and respectfully by Paris Cordon Bleu trained chef Marina Žibert. Chef Marina offers a unique twist on local and Mediterranean cuisine with a touch of French cuisine using modern cooking methods like sous-vide for optimum temperature and timing to preserve flavor and vitamins from organic vegetables, meat or fish.

The restaurant has a nice atmosphere (cozy and good lounge music) 🎺 We had the see bass, homemade ravioli and rootbeet risotto, it was fantastic! 😍 The waiter was very friendly and obliging. A perfect evening with very delicious food and drinks 🍹

It was our last stop in Dubrovnik,we were walking down the street and then we suddenly met hostess Miss. Mia and she gave her best to feel us like at home. I trully recommend this restaurant ,and if her boss read this review I suggest...to give Mia some raise because she is really awesome and made our last night unforgetable. When we come back this will be our first and last place for eat in Dubrovnik. 5/5More

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
