We took the waiter’s (owner?) recommendations for our main courses – a squid stew and a tagliatelli with prawns. They went well together and we shared them. Both were very good and tasty, as indeed were the tomatoes stuffed with anchovy starter we shared. The wine we had was OK, but was not expensive and we got what we paid for. Whilst there was a wine list there did not appear to be any wine on the premises and this was brought from somewhere nearby – we suspect a bar with the same ownership. This was the cheapest of the three dinners we had in Dubrovnik (under 500 kuna – just over £50 – for a shared starter, two main courses, coffee, a bottle of wine and two small bottles of water) - we thought it good value.

Two things to be aware of if you want to pay by card. Firstly (and for no obvious reason) coffee had to be paid for in cash. Secondly, (at least on the evening we went there) there was no credit card machine in the restaurant and the waiter asked to take the card away (presumably to where the wine came from) and to tell him the PIN number. I have no reason to think his intentions were other than honourable, but you may not want to take the risk.

We were tired and feeling a little chilly, looking for a restaurant where we could eat indoors. The menu for Pupo looked interesting and when we requested an indoor seat the waitress was very quick to accommodate us. We found ourselves in the coffee shop itself surrounded by books and it looked like locals used it for this purpose on a regular basis. The cake looked delicious!
We ordered Dubrovnik chicken and she recommended a bottle of wine because we wanted to drink a local one and it was lovely. The food arrived promptly and was a really tasty dish! We were so impressed that we sat and wrote down what we could taste in it to try and recreate it at home! During the meal we enjoyed conversations with the proprietor and the waitress told us about life in Croatia - they were both very helpful! The meal was a real bargain too! We were very glad we called.

Dined here on a chilly evening and we were offered a table inside. Beef Carpaccio for starter was a huge portion. We shared a seafood platter for main which was excellent, all freshly cooked and a good assortment of items. Friendly service.

Wrote a review of this old town restaurant on my last visit to Dubrovnik in 2012, came back again this October to find it still good. Waiter amazed me by remembering our group, slick service still to the fore!.Food was again excellent and reasonable enough for its location and general Dubrovnik prices. Would recommend for dinner in a lovely setting for a standard holiday night would perhaps recommend Rosario or similar if for a very special occasion. But must say it speaks volumes to see a restaurant maintain high standards of food and service year on year so well done to all at Konoba Pupo, I have no hesitation in recommending you to all visitors to Dubrovnik especially irish speakers who will enjoy the Croatian who can converse in same!

Located in a side street off the main street in old Dubrovnik this place is well worth considering if you are feeling overwhelmed by the choice of places to eat. I had a plate of tuna carpaccio served with melon. The waitress expertly filleted my sea bass which was precisely cooked and served with potatoes. The service here is exemplary. I sat inside but there is seating outside for those who wish to dine al fresco.
