The food at this restaurant was delicious but they are let down by their kitchen staff. It is possible to see directly into the kitchen from the terrace where we were waiting for our meal, and as I watched the young chef finishing preparing our...main course he tasted the sauce then put the spoon back into the pan! Yuk! Especially in this time of covid! I wish I had been brave enough to say something but suffice to say I couldn’t eat any of the sauce or peas that came with my lamb.More

Our sincere apologies. The reason we built an open kitchen was not only to let the guests enjoy watching the preparation of their meals but also to provide full transparency of the process. We believe that in this way we also maintain stricter hygienic measures...More
We saved this for the last night of our holiday and our only regret was that we couldn't come back!! The food is absolutely incredible. The staff were friendly and service was brilliant. Would highly recommend!! Absolutely delicious!
So good we went back a 2nd time, visiting for the 1st on a recommendation. I emailed and reserved a table they were also very helpful in organising a bottle of Prosecco for my partners birthday. The menu is a great length focussing on fewer...dishes done very well but offering options from seafood to meat and vegetarian. The service was attentive but not overdone and still casual. They were great at recommending a lovely wine too.More
Wow! We happened past this restaurant for lunch and so so glad we stopped! The service was fantastic, attentive but not over the top and the cocktails were THE BEST! Our two kids had an great chicken dish and my husband and I had the...tasting menu which was so so good. Every dish was superb. Super high quality but not over the top and pretentious. Just lovely flavors presented in beautiful ways. We will definitely go back before heading home (to quarantine!!)More
Culinary mastery and amazing presentations of food. It was such an experience, we did both lunch and dinner there, and I almost never repeat a restaurant on vacation. Service, price, and atmosphere was stellar. Also, cuttlefish risotto was the best risotto I’ve ever had
Booked the Bugenvila restaurant as a special treat for our last night in Cavtat and boy are we glad we did. The food was simply delicious. Most definitely the best meal we had during our 9 night stay and worth every penny. Presentation of food...was stunning and service excellent. As a family we had the pork, duck and lamb for mains with a tiramisu for desert. Can’t recommend this restaurant highly enough. It deserves to have the number one spot (by the way we also ate at the number one rated restaurant and there is no comparison, this is head and shoulders above). If you’re in Cavtat book a table and enjoy the fine dining experience, you won’t be disappointed. Thank you to the Bugenvila for making our last night in delightful Cavtat such a special one.More
We had the most amazing meal of our stay in Cavtat at Restaurant Bugenvila. The impeccable food and lovely wine was accompanied by amazing service from Toni our waiter. Highlights include oxtail croquettes, beef tartare and chicken liver pate. The vegetarian options were also delicious...- falafel, cauliflower soup and gnocchi. We finished with a stunning take on a tiramisu. Exquisite and would highly recommend this lovely little restaurant.More
This was our favourite meal out in cavtat, what a find! Food was totally amazing, we had risotto and octopus for starter and they were just stunning, mains we had sea bass, duck and beef cheeks they were all presented beautifully with amazing flavour,desserts and...coffees just wow, not the cheapest place but totally worth it!More

I believe they do. Couple sitting next to us had to have gluten free and I think they accommodated them. Don’t be afraid to mix and match the courses, or just have a starter or just a main , they really don’t mind. We... More
