On our Dubrovnik holiday we ended up as regulars here. It is a long line of comfy swing chairs on the tourist promenade opposite a fountain. As a place to kick back with a value priced drink (including cocktails) and watch the world go by it was perfect. We must of caught a beer or a cocktail or two every... More
