What a gem of a find. Lovely place, the waitress was very helpful choosing our wine which complemented our meal perfectly. I had oysters to start which were fresh and delicious followed by the fresh tuna nicoise salad which was also just as good. My...husband had the seabass. We also loved the ambience right next to the bay , another great find, definitely recommend.More

We stopped for lunch in Bugenvila during a rainy day in July. I was a wonderful find. The food was absolutely delicious. Wonderful staff who kept our wine glasses topped up. A perfect afternoon lunch. We returned for dinner a few days later and the...food was just as good. The only downside was that we wanted to return on the Monday our last day for lunch (I was still dreaming of the prawns) but it was unfortunately closed! For us it was best food we had in Cavtat (much better then #1 ranked restaurant). We can’t wait to return on our next visit.More

This was another restaurant recommended by our food tour guide. It's a great location on the seafront where the massive yachts are anchored, great for people watching. You start off with some homemade dips and bread which are delicious. I had the scallops to start...and hubby had the spicy prawns both very good, for main hubby had the beef short ribs and I had the the duck which was also very good. We are not big eaters and portions are quite small, I would have liked something like a fondant potato with the duck as it just came with very small veggies.More

We ate hear twice on our week long stay and both times were excellent although the lunch was slightly better than the dinner. Lunch we had the lamb and the fig salad. This was a high quality lunch, presentation of both dishes was fine dining...standard. The lamb was slow cooked and divine, melt in your mouth and the potato normandie and grilled pepper accompaniment was well balanced. The dinner we opted for the lobster bisque and steak. In hindsight I’d of preferred the lamb again but the steak was cooked to my liking although the presentation not as good as lunch a few days earlier. The lobster bisque was packed with flavour and as expected with fine dining just about enough in terms of portion. The restaurant has some truly great gin cocktails. My wife was very taken with the clumsy unicorn. (Gin Prosecco and elderflower) and I also enjoyed the Adriatic (gin fig leaves and tonic). Without doubt the best restaurant we visited during our time in Cavtat and several levels above its competitors on the strip.More

We had a wonderful experience in Bugenvila restaurant. We had a party of 6 people and everyone loved their food choices. Anastasia, was so friendly and knowledgeable about every aspect of food choices and wine, she was a breath of fresh air, and a gem...to have working here ( she will go far in her career). The food tasted sublime and the wine we chose ( with Anasthasia’s educated advice) went down a treat. I loved the decor, setting and the ambience. I look forward to returning in the future.More

Good wine and food knowledgeable. The croatian wine is really good....Watching our waiter prepare a gripper was awesom. Beat if all I have come away with a great espresso martini recipe.

Fantastic set menu, very well priced and the food is simply delicious. There is a free entrée of fresh bread and dips. The set menu is varied and meets all dietary requirements including vegetarian and gluten free. The food is imaginative, visually beautiful and tasty....This is very different from most of Cavtat and is a unique and special experience. The service was excellent, attentive and unassuming and I think it’s great to be able to take your time between courses, chat, relax and enjoy the overall experience. The location is lovely and great for watching the boats, chatting and just enjoying life. Overall we had a great few hours as a family and would highly recommend this as a perfect spot for lunch.More

This is a truly wonderful experience. The set menu it is great value for money and the food is sublime. The quality of the ingredients shines through and the menu is unique for Cavtat. There are lots of gluten free and vegetarian options as well...as beef , chicken duck etc. We whiled away a few hours here, enjoying the food, the wine and the view. The service was excellent, attentive but just right and the waiter was very knowledgable. Overall a memorial experience and a must visit if in Catat.More

Having seen all the great reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give this restaurant a try. The staff were super-friendly, knowledgeable & attentive. The menu is compact but with some really interesting fish and meat dishes - all high quality. Desserts were slightly more limited...in scope. Loved it so much - we returned later in the week.More
