“LIVED UP TO ITS GOOD REVIEWS”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

Ate there on strength of tripadvisor reviews and place lived up to the good ones. Waiter was friendly with a surprising grasp of Irish having traveled and drunk in all thirty two counties. Typical alley restaurant but service was slick, prices reasonable and food excellent. We both enjoyed our meals - starters soup/ dalmation ham - steak / chicken - Tomato soup was excellent, ham was tasty but a bit boring but seems to be a national dish and I wanted to try it, did not have it again all holiday - steak was awesome as was the chicken - all in all a excellent dinner and certainly not a tourist trap - well worth a visit if only for the steak.

“tasty food”
Reviewed November 1, 2012

I enjoyed my scampi cooked in tomato and herbs and served with tagitelle and topped with three large whole scampi, it was very tasty. My husband had the fish of the day and that was also tasty. We found all restaurants in Dubrovnik to be pricey compared to what we pay at home but we knew this before we came and I really wanted to try the local restaurants and taste wise we were not disappointed.

“Excellent Seafood”
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This is a typical tourist place in the Old Town. I wouldn't go here if your looking for interesting and creative cuisine. However if you fancy some basic, well cooked local seafood then by all means try the squid stew which was delish and the fresh fish platter. This isn't inexpensive but for the quality of the fish it was worth it. We had no problem with the staff at all although I do agree with other reviews that it took a bit long to be served. We were on holiday though and a glass of wine and good company was enough to keep us busy whilst waiting!

“Could of been a lot better”
Reviewed October 13, 2012

Myself and my boyfriend visited here from looking at the reviews on TA. When we arrived the waiter was very pleasant and the menu looked very pleasing, unfortunately we were in for a bit of a shock. I ordered the Pupo salad to start which was ok and my partner ordered risotto which wasn't risotto at all, it was over boiled rice in a cream sauce, although he did say the flavours were there. For main we had the seafood platter for two which consisted of cold langoustines, small, old and dried up mussels, 2 whole fish (which were the best part of the dish), 2 small prawns and boiled potatoes. During the meal, at no point did anyone come over and ask if everything was ok, or even offer us a side plate when they could see we were struggling to eat pieces of bread with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. I'm afraid we left very dissapointed and wouldn't recommend this restaurant.
