Excellent food and service. Best to book in advance, which we didn't but were given a table out on the patio. Friendly and helpfull staff. Was recommended by our taxi driver from the airport. Mostly used by locals.

We were in Dubrovnik for 2 nights. The first night we were jet lagged and chose to eat in the old town as we were staying close to it. The second night we wanted to venture out and see a little of the town outside the walls. We checked on TripAdvisor and found 2 highly rated restaurants. One of them... More

We decided to give the Ottos Taverna a try following the good reviews on TA. As with other restaurants we have visited locally, Ottos had a very limited menu 5-6 items for starter and main course, but we found dishes that we fancied. For starters we had mussels and chicken pate and both went down well. Both were tasty and... More

Very nice place. Unfortiounatly they made a big mistake. I ordered a Ribeye from the meny (mediumrare). They came in with a Sirloin made rare. Sirloin was not even on the meny. To bad. The starter, Tuna tartar was fantastic and my wife had a real good tuna steak. Cheating with meat cuts is not OK.

A spur of the moment booking turned out to be the best decision of our holiday so far. This small vaulted restaurant is elegant, plays good music and serves delicious food. The welcome and service were excellent and everything on the menu looked tempting. We settled on the tuna steak and the lamb - both were fabulous. We enjoyed it... More

Booked via hotel the day before, on strength of TripAdvisor reviews. Small restaurant with a nice atmosphere. Reeeeeally good bread. Tuna tartare starter was delicious. The seared tuna steak main was divine! Had mixed feelings about the lamb main; the potatoes and gravy were lovely but the lamb seemed overlooked - more like roast lamb that had been carved when...

We spent a good night having dinner in Otto taverna, really nice staff, our table was outside so they kindly gave us a blanket, good wine and well cooked and tender meat. We had the bbq ribs and the beef steak. The home made potatoes were delicious. Good atmosphere too.Well done.

Came here on our first night in Dubrovnik - it was a 15 minute walk from our hotel and from TA had great reviews. Read from previous reviews that it is often fully booked so got there 15 minutes before they opened to see if we could get in. At first, the guy who answered the door said they were... More

I've been cycling throughout Croatia, visiting several islands for days at a time, and returning in between to Dubrovnik. It was coincidental that I happened to be staying in an apartment right next door. I've now eaten at Otto's place three nights, and plan my final visit tomorrow before flying home. Everything everyone says is true. Fresh ingredients, a small... More
