“Amazing Croatian food and wine.”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Combine the fresh food (interesting menu) with local and imported Croatian wine and you have the recipe for a great meal out.

Our waiter was attentive, friendly and helpful when it came to advising us about red wine from Hvar to accompany our chosen dishes.

The only thing to improve is the lighting. Though low ambient light is pleasant, a small candle on our table would have made a nice difference. Our corner was quite dark.

We highly recommend Ragusa.

“Great Croatian food”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

The squid ink dumplings were fantastic and reminded me of a dish that I loved in Split. Williamstown is lucky to have such a great alternate dining option.

“Very impressed”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

I was in Williamstown for a few days to work so I checked Trip Advisor for restaurant recommendations before I left home. Ragusa was highly rated and lived up to the hype.
I was by myself and was given a good table with a view across the room to the bar. First course was bugs, great. Main was Croatian cabbage rolls, delicious.
Two courses, wine and coffee for under $80, very satisfied.

“A wonderful surprise!”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

We happened upon Ragusa on a Friday night after work and were very impressed! I hadn't eaten at a dedicated Croatian restaurant before, but I certainly will again. The restaurant itself is modern and clean and yet there is a still a cosy atmosphere. The staff were extremely attentive with quick and faultless service. The food was delicious, very fresh and superbly cooked - luckily we were hungry as the meals are very generous.

There is a function room at the back which is handy to know and every guest who arrived for the function they had on that Friday night was greeted like a long lost friend.

Ragusa is a happy place, it's definitely worth visiting and so refreshing to find such a gem in Williamstown which does struggle to offer really top quality restaurants at an attractive price. Let's hope more of the local restauranters take a feather from their cap!

“Excellent service and food”
Reviewed October 3, 2012 via mobile

I have been to Ragusa on several occasions and have always found the food to be exciting, fresh and with a warmth. This is a gem in a very rough pond of Williamstown, where frozen buffet menus rule to attract tourists. Ragusa cares about the locals. Thank you for a nice birthday with terrific service
