Description: Steakhouse Domino, the oldest steakhouse in Dubrovnik, is a family owned and operated restaurant with over thirty years of experience providing guests with an exquisite dining experience. Offering local fresh fish and seafood along with a tantalizing array of steak offerings, Domino has something for everyone. Our unique combination of al fresco dining, excellent professional service and outstanding food has enabled Domino to be recognized as one of the premier restaurants in the city.

Walking by Domino and it's lovely fan-cooled terrace, I first noticed the professional, seasoned waiters. In a town where most servers are college-aged, this bode well. We were not disappointed when we came later for a late evening dinner of well-prepared steak and a fine goulash. Our waiter brought a tasty fish pate with bread and recommended two excellent Croatian red wines sold by the glass. We left happy and sated. Service was very good and personable. Several hours later we walked by after midnight heading back to our apartment. Domino was dark but two of the waiters were sitting nearby decompressing after a long workday. They recognized us and greeted us warmly. I recommend.

The waiters would like to thank-you for your recognition of their service. They have all been with Domino for at least ten years. In fact, it is not uncommon to hear stories from guests about how they had the same waiter from ten, fifteen, and even twenty-plus years ago. As you said, this is somewhat unusual in Dubrovnik restaurants, but, as a family-run restaurant, Domino seeks to create an inviting and pleasing environment for both guests and employees alike. Again, we appreciate you noticing. And if circumstances allow, we hope that you will be able to enjoy the same waiters as the years pass.

Many tables crowded under large umbrellas. The fish was indeed fresh and filleted at our table but the salads and veg were lacking and everything was smothered in olive oil.

I am sorry to hear that our style of serving our food was not to your liking. We (as are many Croatians) are enamored with our olive oil and, in many cases, apply it liberally. Unfortunately, this detracted from you being able to fully enjoy the fresh fish that your waiter filleted at your table. That being said, we appreciate your critique as it allows us to be more mindful of differing tastes, improving our offering.

And one final thought concerning our terrace: I think that you might be confusing our terrace with another restaurant’s as we have one large tender (umbrella) as opposed to multiple large umbrellas.

Some guidebooks disparage the service and faire of the Dubrovnik restaurants. Not so here. The waiters are professionals, and they are backed-up by the owner and an another layer of upper level management to make sure each of their patrons have a great experience. If a waiter was preparing a dish table-side, I saw the manager seamlessly seat guests, deliver water and bread to extend a warm welcome. My wife remarked that the china was especially pleasing and asked if there was anywhere she could buy some. The manager said that no there was none available. When we rose to leave the same manager tucked a plate under my wife's arm and wished her well. My wife was ecstatic.

The food was terrific. Tender calamari and a beautifully cooked steak. It was our last night, but I would have returned the next night if I could. Everything's was first class all the way.
