“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

This is one of the best seafood restaurants i ever ate et. Everything was fresh and tasty. Service is very good as well and staff knows their job. Although they were young i got the feeling that they knew what are they doing and that they are doing this job with pleasure. I ate lobster in spicy sauce and it was excellent. Only thing that i can have against this restaurant is the price. In my opinion everything is overprices but after all this is Dubrovnik and in Dubrovnik everything is overpriced.

“If you're in the mood to splurge some money in a nice setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2012 via mobile

When asked about their favorite restaurant, a couple people told us about Proto. "But it's very expensive", they would warn us. We (3 people) got the Proto cold starters plate. The smoked tuna and calamari salad was delicious. The anchovies were alright. We then shared the fishermans platter (seabass, 2 shrimps and squids), sole medallions wrapped in bacon and the catch of the day (sea bass). All three were succulent (look at pictures). Service was fine, the place was dead but the tables were very nice. With two glasses of house wine, a bottle of sparkling water and the table setting fee (24 kunas), the bill came at just under a 1000 kunas. Not too bad considering wine bottles is how you rack up a hefty bill there. Would possibly could've had very good fish elsewhere for less, but we knew it was gonna be good and it turned out to be a good price for all we got. Worth it if you feel like dressing up and enjoy the finest dining Dubrovnik has to offer.

“Good & fresh seafood”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Very good seafood in Dubrovnik. There are innumerous options in the old town but this one is special. the environment and the staff know how to receive and greet the guests. Food is always fresh and tasty. The menu offers a big variety of starters and main course. Deserts were also very much appreciated.

“Lunch at proto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

Our local guide recommended proto as the best fish restaurant. While we did not have time to prove him right or wrong, we were very happy without meal. I chose a lovely crisp Croatian white wine, and had mussels buzzard, a dish I had made back home in a Croatian cooking class! It was wonderful and plentiful to share with friends. Would love to go here again for dinner. Service excellent and very helpful in understanding the menu.

“Our best meal in Dubrovnik”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

This was most definitely our best meal in Dubrovnik. We had lunch here on a Thursday in late October. The terrace is lovely with tables spaced so that you are not on top of other diners. It's a fish restaurant and therefore, not surprisingly, we ate fish. All three of us were of the view that our dishes were cooked to perfection. My companions both had the skorup (cream cake with almonds and lemon zest) for pudding.
